    I'm more interested in the codex's opinion of the series. I for one enjoyed the 1st and 3rd games, never played the 2nd though.

    Reviews at a blog from the weboo site i lurk at (hardcore gaming 101 for their adventure game reviews), say it's extremely dumbed down in the american release. Lots and lots of things cut from the japonese one - it doesn't seem fatal (useless shit mostly) but they are araging.

    Interesting, but too bad it's for consoles.

    I thought Yakuza now dress in Niggerish street clothes now since they stand out too much in their high quality business suits or so says the documentary that I watched.

    Less shit to translate, I guess. Most of the stuff that was cut out was done so "because americans and europeans wouldn't get them / like them anyway". Bullshit is bullshit, but whacha gonna do?

    The shit that was cut out was mostly a bunch of minigames. Yakuza 3 isn't a very good game anyway compared to Yakuza 2.
