  • Conclusion: One of the best titles to date was the original Shenmue on the Dreamcast. Before I can totally recommend this game to anyone I personally think they should play the first chapter in the series.

  • Summary: Being a big fan of the Shenmue series on Dreamcast hopes for this were extremely high and for much of the time it delivers. The game still has some of the old downfalls such as slowdown but it also adds in some new ones such as bad voice acting.

  • Excerpt: Those are the words that launched a thousand ships. All right, perhaps I'm exaggerating a little bit there, but they did help launch the ship where we last left Ryo Hazuki, on his way to Hong Kong.
