Don't mess with that Yakuza. He'll Kiryu.
HIGH Some of the action sequences are outstanding. If only more games paid this much attention to their martial arts direction.
LOW There's too much filler in the main story. Oh, and anything to do with "following one's dreams."
WTF The 'Stalker' revelation. Or maybe the one with the snowball.

LOW Trying to talk to my Vocaloids using the microphone.

Old-school shooting for a new generation
HIGH The fast-paced action drips with nostalgia.
LOW No online multiplayer, low replay value.
WTF Why are most of the characters named after colors?

Welcome to the first installment of a brand-new semi-regular feature here at GameCritics.com: TouchTalk. While this series was inspired by one of my old features, the Bargain Basement, I've got an all-new focus for an all-new phase in gaming. Rather than highlighting discounted gems in the used section of a retail shop, I'll be reviewing downloadable mobile games and apps that you might want to check out… and maybe some that you'll want to avoid.

I have to preface this by saying I wasn't much of a fan of Streets of Rage—I stayed away from the Sega Genesis and was more into Final Fight and Double Dragon. However, I do understand that there are people out there that absolutely love Sega's contribution to the console beat-'em up genre.

I finally made time in my schedule to sit down with Sega's Binary Domain, and even though I've had my eye on it since last year, the end result ended up being even better than expected.

The Dragon of Dojima's Looking a bit Paunchy
HIGH Playing baseball with kids on the beach.
LOW The slow trickle of new moves makes combat painfully stale.
WTF "You have learned the art of pole dancing."

I'm still trying to complete Yakuza 3 before anything big comes in for review, and I'm almost done. If my guess is correct, there are only one or two chapters left, so I'm hoping to wrap it up tomorrow. I've got to say, out of the three Yakuza titles I've played so far, this one has definitely been the weakest.

Although there are some must-reviews coming down the pipe pretty soon, the industry is more or less in a big lull right now, and that's perfectly okay with me. I've really been enjoying knocking games out of my backlog, and the latest one up at bat is Sega's Yakuza 3. Straight up, I love Yakuza.

My Fist, Your Face
HIGH Hero vs. Hero & Hero.
LOW My continuing inability to find a save point in downtown Tokyo.
WTF Death Volley, the Volleyball-themed assassin!
