Shenmue 2 Review

IGN Entertainment

  • 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. If that is impossible just watch the DVD before you begin to play Shenmue II, it will make the experience oh so much better.

  • 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. There's very little explanation of what happened previously in game so for people not familiar with the series the Shenmue movie is a must see as it gives you a catch up which makes the points in Shenmue II much easier to...

  • 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.

  • Summary: Sega's most ambitious project ever finally continues in the states, and being backed by the most powerful console in existence doesn't hurt things much.

Shenmue II

Sega-Universe
24 November 2004
  • Summary: trifft natürlich nicht jedermanns Geschmack. Die meiste Zeit des Spiels verbringt man mit Konversationen. Diese werden durch gelegentliche Quick Time Events aufgelockert, in denen es gilt plötzlich eine bestimmte Tastenkombination in die Buttons zu hämmern. Als Erfinder von Virtua Fighter hat Yu Suzuki es sich nicht nehmen lassen, auch einige Kampfszenen einzubauen. Diese basieren auf einer abgespeckten Version des beliebten Prügelspiels.
  • Pros:  Spannend, motivierend und klasse inszeniert,  Leicht aufgebohrte Grafik,  Shenmue the Movie als Bonus
  • Cons:  Zur Arbeit gehen nervt auch in der Welt der Videospiele

Test : Dead to Rights

8 September 2003
  • Summary: Il était flic, il faisait du bon boulot, mais il a commis l'erreur de... blablablabla... Pour tout dire, face à Dead To Rights, on s'en fout un peu... Tout ce qu'il faut savoir tient en ces quelques mots : tout doit disparaître...
  • Pros: De l'action en veux-tu en voilà, Bonne rejouabilité, Beaucoup d'actions possibles, Difficulté bien dosée, J'y retourne, là !
  • Cons: Graphisme grossier, Scénario... hum... Y a pas de mot pour ça..., Court comme un jeu d'action...

Xbox Gazette
2 September 2003
  • Conclusion: Shenmue II propose aux possesseurs de Xbox de vivre une saga mythique, et non encore achevée, issue de la défunte Dreamcast et constituée d'un bonne dose d'aventure, d'un soupçon de RPG, d'une gestion poussée des combats, et d'une foule de détails qui en font un titre original et difficile à classer.
  • Pros: uniquement en anglais, graphismes peu optimisés, déplacements peu instinctifs, Shenmue III n'est pas annoncé, l'aventure aura-t-elle une vraie fin ?
  • Cons: aventure passionnante, univers très riche et vaste, personnages crédibles, aspect cinématographique, nombreux détails et mini-jeux
