    I love the Yakuza series. I played this demo, then rented Yakuza 2 to compare.

    Yeah, this game is pretty Japanese. I don't expect America to go crazy for it at all, because it's substance over style. As much as the game has advanced and evolved, it still feels like it's a discount title. I don't see people liking text boxes, getting stuck in combo animations, etc.

    Still, I see myself loving the depth of fighting and the story. There is no other beat em up I know of that tells a story this well.

    First, I'm not a fan, since I've never played any of the previous Yakuza games. Hopefully a fan can add what they like about the series.

    I was excited to play this demo, based on videos I've seen. Unfortunately, the demo was the worst thing I've played in quite some time. I thought that the Japanese dialogue instead of an English soundtrack was weak. To then follow that up with at least half of the dialogue being text that wasn't spoken, even in Japanese? That made the game feel like it was trying to do something retro, like Zork. The fighting felt way too much like "Step 1: Hit square. Step 2: Go to step 1," which was extremely boring. The player character and the NPCs felt extremely stiff, on par with poor quality games from the previous console generation. Finally, the city itself just felt way too closed off to even make me think that it's an open sandbox, reminding me of the "sandbox" of No More Heroes.

    I've already pulled the game off of my gamefly rental queue.

    If the reviews can change my mind AND give me a reason to believe that the demo isn't representative of the game, it might be worth adding back to the rental list, but I doubt this could ever come close to a purchase.

    No Hostess clubs!!! Bummer!

    It was ok, but I want to know if it has voice through the whole game or just in certain sections. The demo did not always have voicing and there was a lot of reading. I don't mind reading, but it slows the pace of the game. I do like that it is in Japanese. Kind of a second language for me.

    I enjoyed it fighting was fun as ever, the new revalation system could hold a lot of comedic value, and the new arcade game was a lot of fun, But i did have some slow down issues in one area, And it douse seem strange to have slow downs during the UFO catcher arcade game, i really like the expanded inventory. Shame sega cut the hostess clubs with some mini games, but this is still my top buy game for march

    This game looks pretty stupid. Fits right in with the rest of them.
