Summary: I personally love this series. I played Shenmue for the dreamcast and enjoyed being able to run around Japan to search for clues. Shenmue 2 starts in Hong Kong. I enjoyed running from place to place getting part time jobs, playing the street gambling games,etc. This game is not just all running around and games but you also get to use your karate to defeat people in your way.
Summary: This was a great RPG game. This is the only kind of RPG I can play. I really don't like most other RPG's requiring you to learn a new language, fight every other scene, etc. etc. Its like playing Starwars, without any weapons. (I hated all the Starwars movies!) I do, though, enjoy this type of game though! I love the games that give us a beautiful, well known city as the backdrop (Max Payne, Fear Effect 1 and 2, Spiderman, Shenmue 1 and 2, etc.
Summary: For anyone who hasnt played any of the shenmue games then pay attention, this isnt like any other game you can explore the cities talk to people and even fight some of them. it has a great story line and game play and this time its only one cd unlike the dreamcast one which was three.
Summary: I can't really explain why I fell so deeply in love with Yu Suzuki's first console release, the Dreamcast's original Shenmue. Perhaps it was the sense of complete freedom, which allowed players to spend their income however they saw fit, completely disregarding the story in favor of video games and little toy capsules.
Summary: What would you do if a mysterious martial artist appeared one day, killed your father, and stole your father's mysterious mirror? Well, you would surely go after the mysteriuos man, wouldn't you? Well that's exactly what Ryo Hazuki does in Shenmue's plot. Shenmue 2 is the sequel to one of the ill-fated Dreamcast's gems, Shenmue. The story follows Ryo (that means YOU) after departing for Hong Kong, following the trail of Lan Di, the man who killed your father.
