They really need to up the promotion/advertising of the game in the west. Most people in EMEAA/America dont even know this series. Great game - recently bought it and am having a blast. The lack of dubbing in english (even with english subtitle) is still irritating for a game thats so cutscene and story focussed.

It's a solid beat em up/sandbox game. This game should have been advertized more.

Very dissapointed in the sales numbers so far, it may have great legs when it starts dropping in price though.

I think that it is a RPG. You play the role of Kazuma Kiryu. You gain experience just like you would in any RPG by fighting pseudo-random battles on the world map and doing sidequests. You can upgrade your move set, equip armor and accessories, oh and most importantly, the game is very story driven.

Regardless of whether or not you agree that it is an RPG, Yakuza 3 is definitely worth checking out. The game has so much to offer (too much for the likes of a short demo which is most probably why people have found the demo to be underwhelming). Take a chance on it. You just might be very surprised :).

@gekkokamen you should never compare a normal game to an open world game in terms of graphics as they are almost never on the same level. just look at crysis u could get those kinds of graphics pretty easily if it was a normal game with those graphics but because its open world the specs neede g through the roof

@shaqpack609: Apart from the Main Storyline there are more then 80 substories, some of them quite long, you can play golf, darts, bowling, karaoke, there is a batting cage, you can go to sega arcades, there are Casinos, a Colosseum. You can take girls out for dinner or any of the mentioned activities. There are 100 hidden Locker-keys to find throughout the game, and that is just what i remember from the top of my head i probably forgot most. its a Content-Monster
