Shenmue has to be one of the main reasons I own a Dreamcast. I first heard about this game through word of mouth a good many years ago from friends who said it was one of the best games they had ever played, and I took the plunge to investing in it when I got my Dreamcast console. The story of Shenmue is about a young guy called Ryo Hazuki who's father gets killed off by a Chinese assassin known as Lan Di. This sends poor Ryo off on an adventure to avenge his fathers death and hunt down the villains who had part in the murder. Along the way Ryo meets an array of interesting and fascinating characters, friends and foes. Most of the game is progressed through ... Read the complete review

This was the reason why I re bought a dreamcast to finish this game, as my original one broke, so I am going to give five good reasons why I liked this game so much. 1) The story line its like a movie it is that good, your farther has been killed and you want to avenge his death simple enough but the way you go through the story makes it feel worth while. 2) The sound quality no other game since or before playing this as had such a good style of music to tie in with the game. It doesn't get annoying at all which I love not like most games. 3) The characters you will fall in love with some and hate others this game really does make you ... Read the complete review

Shenmue is, without a doubt, one of the best games ever made, and it's a profound shame that it never gained the audiences that it deserves - narratively conscious and visually stunning, this game, which was the most expensive ever made upon its release, is begging for a next generation sequel. The game revolves around Ryo Hazuki, a Chinese man whose father is murdered in front of his very eyes by a man known only as Lan Di. This sends Ryo on an adventure to hunt down his father's killers, travelling through countles districts, performing numerous jobs, and getting in lots of fights. Shenmue virtually redefined the RPG - much of the game relies on ... Read the complete review

The Game Shenmue is a gem of the Dreamcast. If you own a Dreamcast this is the number 1 game to own! This game was so innovative for it's time, and coined the genre "FREE" due to the freedom the player has in this game. Real life event's are portrayed in the game such as sleeping, eating etc. Aswell as that, the game creates a unique and excellent quest line, searching for the characters dead father's killers. The game introduces early examples of Quick Time Event's and area's can be explored without furthering the quest line. This game has alot to offer, and for it's time was an amazing game. But the game might be boring for some gamer's as the game doesn't ... Read the complete review

Shenmue, much like the Dreamcast itself, is a product for those in the know. That statement may sound a little snobby, but any DC owner will tell you its the truth. I recently spoke to a guy at work for the first time recently. Being guys, we spoke about computer games. We discussed favourite games and I mentioned the original Fallouts, Joust, Elite, Sunset Riders, he said the best game he had ever played was Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. I found this incredulous, and have not actually spoken to him since (not just because of that, but it definately flagged him as a 'tool') I have heard many a gamer tell me how open GTA's world is, how excellent ...
