Summary: THIS GAME PLAYS LIKE IT WAS DEVELOPED IN THE YEAR 2015, SENT BACK IN TIME TO THE YEAR 1999 AND BLEW THE DOORS OF THE GAMING WORLD INTO TINY LITTLE PIECES. In a time when gaming was taking its 1st baby steps into the 3D world Shenmue was released on the Sega Dreamcast. It firmly planted it's foot in the ground and became the greatest adventure the gaming world had seen.
Great game that's backward compatible for Xbox360.

Summary: I bought this game because I read amazing reviews on it from various sources. I was skeptical about this game being played on my Xbox360 because I heard about the nightmares of certain games that are NOT backward compatible. Shenmue II IS backward compatible on Xbox360 and I've played it for hours. I LOVE this game and I can only compare it to open world RPGs like FABLE.
Summary: A phenomenal game, one of my most cherished game franchises! Story is compelling, Characters show deep dynamic personalities & emotions. The fighting sequences mixed with quick time events are some of the best i have ever had the pleasure of experiencing in any video game to date! Definitely, Definitely give this masterpiece a try, you won't regret it!
Summary: Hands down one of the best games on the Sega dreamcast , story , action , adventure its all here. If you have never played this game or if you are on the fence about reliving such a great game Don't even think about it just do it and you will see that you wont regret it.
Amazingly cheap and very detailed game for its time

Summary: The Shenmue experience is like no other, story-line that is amazing people that are well made and city that is full with energy.I feel as if I live there everytime I play and it brings warmth to my heart, I bought this game because it had so many memories of it, even people who didn't play video games in my household played this game exclusively and the sheer fun of this game is brilliant.
Summary: I heard this game was one of the best games ever made and on the Dreamcast. This game is very unique with its different modes of gameplay; Free Quest, Free Battle, QTE (Quick Time Event), and View Mode. In Free Quest, you go around asking questions to advance through the game; sounds boring, but quite entertaining if you ask me. The best part is going to the You Arcade and play games like Hang-On and Space Harrier!
Summary: Best game I ever played, the story, fighting, music, and best of all Asian style. If you like martial arts this game is all about that. It deserves so much more recognition, but buy Shenmue 1 before you buy this one. The story will be easier to follow along with.
If want to play games that are different, then this game is for you

Summary: The reason I wanted this game is what people talked how wonderful this is on the internet and when I plauyed it, I love this one. It had the best graphics what the Sega Dreamcast could do. it had wonderful detailed textures and weather system on the open world of this game. the motion blur is excellent, not what you see in CGI films, but the art style how the game feels.
JUST FREAKING AWESOME! EVEN BEAT METAL GEAR psone!

Summary: An Semi-Free-World-Adventure i'd say. 3rd-person with a virtual time-reality who mix adventure, fighting and minigames. You can talk with people for infos, get a job at a point, go to the arcade and play all virtual-day long. Some cinematic have interactivaty like pressing a button so the character can succeed whatever he's doing in the cinematic. This is the best Shenmue in the series who (i think) died, sadly. An excellent game but not for dumb-filled-action-FPS-lover.
