While Yakuza 3 definitely feels a bit dated from a gameplay perspective, its storytelling has stood the test of time.

Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 have both the best and worst the series has to offer, which is saying something because those highs are so high and the lows really aren't that bad. All three games run exceptionally well, and 4 and 5 look like they belong on PS4 alongside Yakuza 0. 3 is a bit rough around the edges, but it's still a worthwhile entry in the series cannon.

There's no denying that Yakuza 3, even in its remastered form, is rough around the edges -- especially if you're coming off the back of Yakuza 6, Kiwami 2, or Judgment -- but this is still one of the series' better instalments, and for our money, the best of the PS3 Yakuza trilogy.

Yakuza 3 Remastered may not have received the Kiwami treatment, but still features one of the strongest and emotional narratives in the series. Some may not enjoy the focus to be on Kiryu's "softer" side by taking care of the kids at the orphanage. The mini-games are still great at cleansing the palette, with golfing and karaoke as the highlights, but overall they aren't as strong as previous titles. Shame that the narrative pacing doesn't quite deliver in the second half of the game.

We were hoping that all the Yakuza PS3 games would get the shiny treatment reserved to the first two chapters, and weìre disappointed that this wouldn't be the case, but Yakuza 3 Remaster is a remaster done right.

Yakuza 3 lacks fun combat but it makes up for that with its variety.

For newer fans this is the way to continue the Dragon of Dojima's story and for older fans this is the ultimate version of Yakuza 3 with all the removed content added and a better translation.

Even with some elements from the original release that could have used a little sanding down, Yakuza 3 Remastered is still an worthwhile entry in the series to for longtime fans to experience again. It may not be my favorite sequel, but it’s still a competent and enjoyable one.
