  • Excerpt: Shenmue II is like a long satisfying evening meal. It starts off with a tasty introduction to whet your appetite, and then slowly eases you in till you can’t help but indulge yourself in the delights of what you have been presented. Then there’s the ending which might leave you bloated and uncomfortable but will have you simply wanting more.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Suzuki's team is achieving wonderful things with the Shenmue series. They've turned a game into a new world that feels almost real. It's not as revolutionary as the first, but Shenmue II will not disappoint any fans of the original. The fresh new features add even more to the original classic. Shenmue II will appeal to almost all gamers, and is not to be missed.

Shenmue II

  • Excerpt: adventure has been unleashed.  Unfortunately for USA Dreamcast owners, Microsoft has paid the bucks to make sure that Shenmue II is exclusive to Xbox.  All is not lost though, as Sega of Europe has localized the subtitles and released it there.  All you need is an import converter, if you don't already have one, and you're good-to-go.

Shenmue II

Sega-Universe
1 October 2007
  • Summary: Eine Traumwertung für ein Traumspiel. Es stimmt fast alles in diesem Game. Jeder Dreamcast-Besitzer sollte dieses Stück Software sein Eigen nennen können! Mit hat SEGA's Visionär das Spielprinzip des ersten Teils nochmals gehörig aufwerten können. Im Endeffekt ist ein MUST-HAVE für jeden Adventure- und SEGA-Fan heraus gekommen. Darüber hinaus treibt die neue Grafikengine den Dreamcast bis an sein Leistungsmaximum. Kaufempfehlung!!!

Shenmue II

Xbox Vicio

  • Conclusion: En resumen, la misma libertad de movimientos, mapas más largos, más horas de juego, mejores gráficos, banda sonora sobresaliente, jugabilidad y adicción endiablada, un argumento más que brutal, etc. Todo esto conforma lo que para mi es sin duda alguna el mejor videojuego de la historia. Y como los 10 los inventaron para algo, yo se lo voy a dar a este juego por explotar al máximo una consola como la Dreamcast y por ser simplemente genial.

  • Pros: Anche negli ambienti più affollati e ricchi di particolari le immagini sono fluide., Ottima gestione delle telecamere sia un combattimento che in esplorazione., Gestione dei comandi molto comoda.
  • Cons: Può essere un pò frustrante per chi non ha un buon senso dell'orientamento.

  • Excerpt: Lourde tâche que celle qui m'incombe aujourd'hui de vous présenter Shenmue 2, le jeu le plus attendu de la Dreamcast, la suite d'un monument vidéo-ludique acclamé par des millions de joueurs de part le monde, le dernier-né d'une console qui aura tout donné pour émerveiller une nouvelle fois son public. Un véritable défi que je m'efforcerai de relever ici pour tenter de partager avec vous l'émotion que véhicule ce titre digne du plus grand respect.
