I feel like this game wanted to be Shenmue, but it is not.  I'm not going to lie, I never finished this game.  Running around the streets of Kyoto is boring.  The karioke game shows this games true colors which are shades of gray and a vomit green.  Combat = bad, graphics = bad, levels = bad, voice acting = bad. However, this game made a great coaster when I was finished. I bought it new so I couldn't get my money back.  Don't buy, borrow, or rent Yakuza 3.... it sucks.
