  1. I think the gameplay is great as well, not just the cinematics/story. Although the fighting is a bit slow, it improved a lot in Yakuza 2 and the story definately propelled me to Yakuza 2, and with a bad story it might not have, sure. Still, Yakuza is great and I love the series a lot. I’m still hoping for Yakuza 5.
