Brawler tackles dark subjects sensitively.
Darker than the previous game, the story explores the ripple effects of sadistic bullying and sexual harassment to a corrupt world of torture and murder in a fashion that only the Yakuza franchise can manage without imploding. The story has moments of shocking violence, however the gameplay is decidely dialed back from prior entries as Yagami is no hardened gangster. So no edged weapons or guns for him to kill anybody.
