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.

Shenmue Review

7 August 2004
  • Excerpt: During the month of April 2000, I wrote a review for Resident Evil—Code: Veronica that challenged game developers. I proclaimed that today's near photo-realistic graphics made some gaming conventions of the past seem outright ludicrous.

Review : Shenmue for Dreamcast

8Bitjoystick.com
15 March 2004
  • Conclusion: The real time can be a bit of a drag all so when you have to kill time in the game for a specific time and the forklift driving can get boring just like a real job. I hope that one day Sega finishes the Shenmue story with a part 3.

Shenmue

RPG LAND
16 November 2003
  • Excerpt: This Dreamcast-exclusive title is one of the games that really puts a feather in the machine’s cap. Upon Release, Shenmue became one of (if not THE) most realistic games ever created. The plot uses a bit of fantasy, but hey, a game exactly like real life would get boring kinda fast, wouldn’t it?
