    While a divisive entry to some, Yakuza 3 remains a highlight of the franchise for me, and it feels good to see this much love given to its restoration.

    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 isn’t the best entry, but it’s great to have it available on newer systems with all the content we previously lost in the West. If you like the series, don’t miss it out.

    This is a remastered title done the right way, as it performs perfectly and the revamped localization gives even veteran players a great reason to play it again.

    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.

    Despite occasionally feeling dated, Yakuza 3 still offers a fun experience for fans of the series.

    If you've played other entries in the series and just want to experience some cool lore about the world, Yakuza 3 Remaster is the game for you. It's a game all about fanservice, but also the one you can skip if you don't want to retreat familiar waters. If you're new to the series though, this one might not be for you.

    Yakuza 3 for PS4 still delivers a great story, with solid characters and many interesting situations, but the game didn't age too well despite the remastered graphics.
