NCS Product Synopsis
Update: October 27, 2006

«©NCSX» The seedy underbelly of the Kamurocho district fosters all breeds. The ones that stand out in Ryu Ga Gotoku however are the bad seeds; the Yakuza inspired gangsters and killers who use force and devious design to unhinge their fellow man. The protagonist in the adventure is a bruiser named Kazuma who went to prison and summarily broke out. As the game starts, Kazuma is standing in the middle of a neon lit street while throngs of night life seekers stroll and mill about. Accidentally bump into someone and witness his or her stumbling motion and arm waving antics.
   Move Kazuma forward a bit and follow the fellow thug who wears a purple and gold shirt to a building. After entering the building, a cinema shows an encounter where a meek subject suddenly turns into a tiger wielding a golf club. This leads to the first battle of the game which is basically a training mission which teaches the various moves and combos that are available. Guide Kazuma and punch and power-punch the thugs in the room and their golf club swinging boss. The fighting is a full-fledged 3D action game where the controls are smooth and the punches rattle off in fluid motion. To grab someone in a choke hold, press the "O" button. To follow up with a head butt while choking someone, hit the SQUARE button. Thugs who are being choked may also be smashed into walls by pressing the TRIANGLE button when prompted. In addition to punches and smacks, Kazuma may pick up the golf club and other items in the room to whack foes with them. For example, pick up a waste basket and hurl it at a thug's head... We would have preferred more of a fight in the training mission since the thugs don't put up any resistance at all. They just sort of circle Kazuma and try to look menacing.  

   Eagle-eyed "night-life" lovers may notice the similarities between the virtual streets of Kamurocho and the adult entertainment district of Kabukicho just north of Shinjuku Station. Visitors to Kabukicho may enjoy venues such as peep shows, massage parlors, strip clubs, private nudie sessions, porn theaters, and even illicit companionship for the pittance of a few thousand yen. Think of it as an adult amusement park that's currently ruled by the Chinese triads.
