This was the first time I had played a game from the Yakuza series and will be the last the graphics were bad the story was stupid and the game play was awful I was expecting something like Mafia meets Sleeping dogs but what I got was a cheesy game that felt like it was a arcade game, I gave it a 2/10 just because I have played a worse game, but remember just because I didn't like it doesn't mean you wont but if you're expecting something great look somewhere else and save this for when you're out of games in your Q.

Personally, i'm a little torn on the multiple character/perspective twist. On one hand, all four characters are superb both story and gameplay wise, but on the other you just think that it would be better if you just controlled one guy and just have the game flesh that one particular character out.
Yakuza 5 should be out sooner or later with the same approach(and i'll probably play it), but i think they really need to reboot the series with a new main character/location.
