Excerpt: If there ever was a gaming series where it was extremely popular but somehow didn't get a sequel, it's Shenmue 2. It's got a lot to live up to. The original was hailed as one of the best games you could buy for the Dreamcast.
Pros: Brilliant cast, great chemistry, good music, removed horrible motorbike section
Excerpt: The game has been ported over from dreamcast to xbox cause basically it is that damn good. Although the characters sound better in japanese no one can complain at the length of the game and the brilliant in depth storyline.
Excerpt: After completing the first game on dreamcast I was really looking forward to playing the sequel but never got round to it. I was very happy when I found that Shenmue 2 was to be released on the X Box, so I decided to wait for its release rather than getting the dreamcast version.
Summary: I had never heard of this game before and bought it mainly on the strength of the existing customer reviews. The very reasonable price and the bonus DVD of the first game swung it for me. The bonus DVD gives you a feature length (1hr 30min approx.) film of the first Shenmue.
Excerpt: A simple story of a son seeking revenge for his father's death, Shenmue was one of the only games which delivered on the idea of a "movie experience". In other words, there was less emphasis on learning skills and repeating tasks in order to concentrate on the story.
Excerpt: You can’t blame Yu Suzuki for having a lack of vision. Shenmue and its sequel were both seen as benchmarks in the Dreamcast’s short life. Suzuki has planned this epic game into around fifteen chapters with the first and second games giving you the first six.
