I can mos definetly say that I will grab me a copy of this game.

On'a side note, I wonder how many discs will come with it, the 1st one coming with 4. 1!

and about the disks how are they gonna do 4 disks for it? i mean look at the x-box containers there not like dreamcasts

I'm very excited but I do wish they will provide a way for me to use my old progress data from the first game like you are supposed to.

Well I know that I will be first in stores the day this game ships on Xbox.
I still intend to import the Dreamcast version from Europe. ebgames.com did have a promotion where they were selling the european DC version w/ a converter for $59.99 but I dont see it on the website anymore?!
I thought the first Shenmue on DC was a classic except for the boring 3rd disc when you had to do that week long stock job.
As far as the 4 disc's go, .... well the Xbox DVD disc can handle much more memory than the DC's GD-Rom disc's.
So I honestly do expect the sequel to be no more than 2 disc if even that! i do expect a passport disc though.
Anyways, I would recommend any doubters to give Shenmue 2 a shot next fall.

I gotta tell ya, I wasn't a huge fan of Shenmue for Dreamcast.

I am a HUGE dreamcast fan first off. I own currently 64 games, one of which is Shenmue, and I still buy games. I'll never sell the system like I did my N64 and PS1, I'm too in love with it.

Anyway, I just couldn't get into the gameplay of it. I really liked the story, and the graphics where downright gorgeous at points, but it held me back somehow. I played down to the end of the game, and ended with a, "So, that happened." sort of attitude.

Will I purchase Shenmue II for the box? You bet I will. Why? Who knows, maybe I'm just a freak, or maybe all those fans can't be wrong.

My guess is it will be a wonderful game, on a wonderful system, with some darn-right wonderful designers. So, to answer your question,

I'll purchase Shenmue 2.

anyone with a brain had better buy this sequel to Yu Suzuki's original masterpiece!

About that passport disc, anyone else wish they would have included a mini fighting game where you could control the prominent fighters from the story and go head to head with your friends? I hope they include that in the next game because I really like Shenmue's fighting system.

Yes, of course I will. Shenmue was what I had been waiting for and it came. I can't say the story was awesome, but I will say the graphics are and Lan Di is the second best video game villian in my view. [Sephiroth is number one of course] When it hits selves I'll finally have a small darn job on the side. [new Pc]

Of course I will. The fist was one of my favorite games.

What could possibly be more worth your $50.00 this fall than Shenmue II ?

I will be first in line to pick up Shenmue 2. After playing it on dreamcast the xbox version should be much better and I am looking forward to seeing how the story continues.

I read the thread that you posted about Shenmue II. I myself will definitly get Shenmue II. The first Shenmue, for DC, is really awesome. I decided to get Shenmue II for Xbox, rather than for DC, since for Xbox it's probably going to have a lot better sound and graphics. I think Shenmue II for Xbox will have 1 disc, rather than Shenmue II for DC that had 4 discs. The reason is:

DC discs: each 1 GB of memory (4 discs is only 4 GB of memory, about half the memory of an Xbox disc)
Xbox discs: each 8,5 GB of memory

Cool thread!


P.S. Read my coment on Shenmue II at Xboxaddict.com (you can find it under 'Find Games)

is it coming in the 2002 fall or right now like in a couple of weeks or so

01-25-2002, 03:07 PM
Im definetly gonna have to pass on Shenmue as well. Didnt seem all that fun?

02-02-2002, 12:48 PM
im pretty sure i will pick it up. I was crazy about shenmue when it first came out on DC. And with the xbox's graphics capability.....
Think about all the possibilities
