The story talks about how a man who covered up the murder of his boss so his friend can avoid arrest while losing his rank and respects. I say that after this plot it gets more interesting since a billion yen from the Yakuza vault has been stolen and now it is your job to find out what happened to it after you get out of prision of coarse for a crime you didn't even commit.
The gameplay is mainly a brawler style kind of game with alot more things to do like hostess club, batting cage, cage battles and many more.
All I have to say is that this is a great start in a long line of Yakuza games that will hit the NA shores soon but please when Yakuza 4 Heir of Legends come out please don't bring the terrible english voice acting back.
Overall Score: 8.5/10
