The graphics look good to me.

And I play it mainly for the story. To me it's a very story driven beat em up with an above average fighting system. Some of the side stuff is fun, but some of it just feels like a chore. And I don't think it's a Japanese life simulator. if it is I never want to go to Japan. Flaming red Yakuza running up and attacking me would be no good.


lol nice one

God I don't understand people on this forum sometimes, they'll bitch about the stupidest crap.

Yet they'll praise companies like Activision/EA/Capcom who will nickel/dime the shit out of you with content that should be already in the game at launch or release ZOMG LIMITED COLLECTOR'S with crap inside.

Oh boy, stupid crap? Sega promised it untouched way back then only to start with the cuts week after week until release. You don't pull that with long-time fans then suddenly get lazy just because you want to release it on the same day as an obvious million-seller (FF 13)

As for the second part, you're just putting words in people's mouths =\ Might wanna stop generalizing.

I own the game, douchebag. The cuts were huge and very noticeable to anyone who played Yakuza 1 and Yakuza 2. It's very jarring to walk into a Shogi parlor expecting to play just like you did in Yakuza 2, and then talk to everyone in there trying to figure out how, only to finally go do a gamefaqs search and find out that you can't play Shoji this time because Sega was too lazy. There are many other cuts of that magnitude, where a fan of the series will notice gaping holes where there was supposed to be content.


Like I said before all cuts were irrelevant to game experience or story. Yeah there were some items that were left over from the hostess portions but if you played any of the Yakuza games you would know that those mini games were not very long. I'm sorry removing the some of the mini games ruined your game experience.

Yakuza is supposed to be a simulation of Japanese life like Shenmue. Take out the side content and it's just a beatemup with bad graphics and collision detection.


I'm sorry if you think Yakuza is simulation of Japanese life, you honestly need to get out more.

Dude you might want to dial it down a couple of notches. No need to call people douchebags.

If people didn't act like douchebags by spouting off an opinion that is by far in the minority and referring to the majority as "idiots ... none of whom have ever played the game yet are commenting like the cuts are 99% of the game" even though most people complaining (myself included) own Yakuza 4 and are longtime fans of the series, there would be no need to call them douchebags.

I don't know about that. Most of the people I've seen whine about the cuts act like the game is only a title screen.

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

Don't forget the exciting side missions such as getting an old woman some water so she can take her medication!

Bad graphics? You might want to cancel your pre-order for Zelda - Skyward sword since its on the Wii huh?

People are way too critical.

When I first heard that I could play as the head of the Japanese mafia, my first thought was, I can't wait to answer some Japanese trivia! Then I heard they cut that out from the American release. I was instantly heartbroken.

So far I am really liking this game. Most of the complaints I hear deal with the side missions of the game which are not related to the story. I do not agree with these complaints however and I find that even mundane tasks such as buying ingredients for a drink or carrying ice cream for some dude can be enjoyable. It is refreshing to have a game that is not purely focused on action. If you need action at all times in your games, then you will likely find the game difficult to get into. The game is definitely not for everyone.

okay i guess ill just put this in simple terms. It is a great game for a great price. buy it or dont buy it. but i honestly dont think it will get cheaper? Whats your next comment gonna be like? Are you gonna say the s=game sucks and isnt worth over $10?


No, let ME put this in simplest terms. It is a great game at a great price but don't make shit up about how it's out of print and super rare and omg look how expensive the old games are.

So I am finally going to break down and buy this game from Amazon since we have been talking about it and I think I would like to try it out. I dont want to pay for shipping though. Anyone have any recomendations to get this above and as close to $25? Are there any non game items on Amazon that may be useful for every day life that you all know of? Seriously... :)

Thanks for the site, I will check it out. And Amazon says they have 600 left in stock, that is why the price has held. In fact that is more than they said they had when I checked yesterday and the day before! Cancellations?

No, and why should there be? It needs to be mentioned at least once. It's important to warn people before they buy it. It doesn't have to be beaten to death like in this thread, but people insist on trying to white knight Sega and misrepresent the severity of the cuts.

It's pretty much been beaten to death in every single Yakuza 3 thread up to this point. Mentioning it once just acts as the first step down the same path.

Not if people would just leave it alone. Somebody says "they cut out X, Y, Z", you don't need to say "well I don't even like X, so I don't care if it was cut, and if you care, you're just a weeaboo and blah blah blah..." or regurgitate whatever lame excuses Sega made up about why they cut out X.
