Shenmue 2 Box art Just pick it up last day. A great adventure game that in the mold of the first one but with enhancements. If you want something really take your time and worth your money, this one is what i recommend to everyone !!


The story continue where Ryu pursuit Lan Di to Hong Kong. First time arrive in the big city with thousand characters to introduce, you are on your way to avenge your father's death. You can ask, search even try your luck to follow Lan Di. Something really addict and fun to do, is just do what you want (Free quest). There are lot of things you can do in the city. You can find a job (must find money to pay your day in hotel), play some mini-games to win some lot of money or even gambling. So much fun and keep you visiting it like 5 to 10 times each time you pass these ones. About the fighting system, it's not really good but keep promising as well. There are like more than 50 moves for your main character to perform. As you advance in the story, you will learn some new moves to fight your way to the end. There are not only fighting scenes, you will have to be quick as possible for the timing fight, action or anything that require timing buttons.


Visuals is not the best from what i know but some cool effects are there to balance the game. Raining is cheap, at least they must have like storming before the whole thing. Every people look very detailed but like there are just in one piece, even their clothes is stick with the body.


Musics, sounds, talking sequences and lastest fighting sounds is really deep and well-done. You can hear some good music when there are fight and something secret is revealed to you.


Suggestions:
You all have done great work. Next time, add some costumes for Ryu, just to keep him clean and not always with the same sign of the back of his jacket and the blue jeans. Also, reajust the face of each people, i notice that you are making only some main characters looking good but the others...just ok. More mini-games. :)


Overall: 10.0 / 10
Gameplay: 9.0 / 10
Visuals: 9.0 / 10
Sound: 9.0 / 10
