Fans of this Japanese mafia series will be thankful that it has finally made it to theUK.At the start of this latest chapter, the game’s star has decided to move away from his violent past and run an orphanage, but guess what? The quiet life doesn’t last very long. For the uninitiated, Yakuza 3 is a strange mix between Grand Theft Auto – given its open-world setting – and a beat-’em-up, although that doesn’t really do it justice. Certain quirks, such as English subtitles, will mean that it’s not for everyone, but its idiosyncrasies are mostly charming.
