Shenmue 1 And 2 Pre-Order Trailer
Oct 26, 2018At this point it’s fair to say the HD port of Shenmue I & II is in better shape than its release and would now be considered acceptable to play. Save data transfer and cutscenes were a big problem, and major bugs seem to be patched out. Both games are here in all their glory and probably the best way to spend your time with Ryo as he follows his journey. Veterans will be happy with the ability to play on modern platforms and newcomers finally have a chance to experience what Shenmue has to offer while Yu Suzuki is hard at work on Shenmue 3.
Oct 22, 2018Playing Shenmue I & II is a treat for die-hard fans as well as an accessible way for newcomers to experience these renowned titles, though they won't be for everyone. Even though I enjoyed both games, I really struggled to look past the clunky dialogue or even fully invest in Ryu's story, and the controls sometimes made walking around a nightmare. They're seminal products of their time that deserve to be celebrated, and this port does a great job of delivering that authentic Shenmue experience.
Oct 10, 2018Shenmue is part of gaming history and there is a reason that it has continued to be revered all this time. But please remember what you are getting in to when buying this game. Yes, it looks a little shinier and it is of course the first time the two games have been available as a collection on a console that isn’t the Dreamcast (Shenmue II was ported to the original Xbox) but if you have never played these games before, expect a little resistance. It may also be worth holding on a little while and picking it up in an inevitable future sale.
Aug 26, 2018Shenmue I & II are still special games with very few, if any, modern equivalents. Certain elements are showing their age and there are some annoying bugs that should hopefully be patched out in time but both fans and possible fans will appreciate the chance to play both these titles in one package.
Nov 8, 2019This is absolutely the best gift that has been giving to the gaming community.
anyone who has every played and loved Shenmue on the DreamcastThis is absolutely the best gift that has been giving to the gaming community.
anyone who has every played and loved Shenmue on the Dreamcast has to appreciate the love that was given with this release.
it's just absolutely wonderful, to have the games, with no load times, and not repainted with rose-colored glasses such as remasters/remakes.
your memory, will not be clouded and flowered to you by a remake. this is the real thing.
you can enjoy Shenmue for everything it was, with the best of the Dreamcast, and slight adjustments that were made.
I would recommend this game, to anyone who delved into Shenmue 1 on the Dreamcast back in the day, and had very fond memories of the fresh game design of that once unique platform.… Expand

Dive into the story of Ryo Hazuki as he looks to avenge his fathers murder. The story will captivate and enthrall as you move through the narrow, bustling community of Yokosuka, Japan, into the busy Hong Kong of 1986/7 and finally into the quiet peace of Gulin.
Yes there are some bugs with sounds and other minor issues but these will be fixed.
I recommend this to new and old players alike.… Expand

Both games are notable for defining many conventional features of modern gaming, from establishing the open world genre, popularising the QTE mechanic and presenting a cinematic feel in a video game. The games also rock some of the best-looking graphics for gaming in 1999. As a warning: both games have a deliberately slow pace. This is a series built for immersion and exploration and not for fast progression replete with action, guns or explosions with a mini-map, glowing trails and a checkpoint system. The games dare to drop you into a vast virtual world to explore at your leisure and refuses to hold your hand, even forcing you to wait for certain shops to open, meet a character at a particular time or complete mundane tasks to complement its virtual life-simulator experience. However, if you can appreciate the refreshingly deliberate slow-pace, the intriguing story and the profoundly immersive environments, these are some fantastic golden oldies to enjoy, right up there with Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy 7.… Expand

Any reviews judging the graphics or control style are judgingCleaned up, smoother, fresher versions of the 2 greatest games ever made. Any reviews judging the graphics or control style are judging unfairly. It's an old game with old mechanics, but old doesn't mean worse. Most games today bore me to death. Go to point A with marker, go to point B with marker, go to point C with marker. Shoot lots of guns, trigger bash and repeat...... Shenmue has atmosphere, storytelling, unique characters and world, and to this day it's incredibly fun to play. 10/10… Expand

The gameplay is often monotonous with a lot of aimless wondering and dull side missions. The controls, which were poor even for the time, feel even more awkward by modern standards and graphical its stood up as badly as most early 3d games.
We'll seen be seeing a third entry in the series pretty soon so Shenmue clearly has a decent fan base, I'm just not one of them.… Expand
