Also,in Yakuza 4,a woman character will be trying to save her brother(you said you don't like stories showing men rescuing helpless women)but in Yakuza 4 you'll see a woman needing to be very brave and have to do things she doesn't want to in an attempt to save her brother.
@ZanarkandTidus I see, must be a dramatic story.
@Shinobi-Neo The story is quite powerful,more than just about the Japanese gang world,but I will say a woman is trying to save her brother who is a gangster in the game.The controls for combat in Yakuza 4 are much better than Yakuza games before it,the combat is Yakuza 4 feels fluid and I found it to be fun,I do agree the combat in the Yakuza games before it felt clunky but in Yakuza 4 the combat feels fluid and fast at times and the special moves are easy/fun to pull off and the combat can be quite technical too and the 4 playable characters have diverse fighting styles.
@ZanarkandTidus cool!! so more characters are playable? and a fluid combat is exactly what the game needed, sounds really positive. Is there a demo version of Yakuza 4.
