Never Let Me Down Again

  • Excerpt: I remember February 23, 1987 surprisingly well. It was my father's birthday, and he was taking me to preschool when his van died in the middle of rush hour traffic, forcing my mother to get me after he pushed the thing along for a while to the tune of some words I didn't recognize yet.

Shenmue 2

The Armchair Empire
10 December 2007
  • Conclusion: The game has improved greatly on the shortcomings of the first Shenmue with players being able to save at any point. Players are also able to skip ahead to important events in the storyline rather than finding ways for Ryo to kill time until he has to meet someone.

  • Excerpt: I must emphasize the epic scope of this series. The original Shenmue contained only the introductory episode of this saga, in which our hero, Ryo Hazuki, traversed his hometown in search of the mysterious man who murdered his father.
