THE GOOD: Exerlent Graphics Brillent Story Line Brillient Charcters Excerlent Plot Full of Action
THE BAD: Nothing That i Notced
SUMMARY: The game itselph continued from the orignel and if you diddent play the orignel you wont understand the next part. the game is excdngly realistic apart from the end whitch is not very realistic. The game is huge 4 disks in all and excedngly long. You need a lot of pations to complete this game. and you must play the orignal before the 2 game otherwise you will not understand the story line and engoy it as much as is intended. my own persnal rating for this gam,e is 9/10
THE GOOD: The grapics are amazing and the story is magnificent it is the second in the long 16 chaptered Shenmue story
THE BAD: It is over all too quickly
SUMMARY: Very few sequels can out-do the original. What fate does Shenmue II hold? The year is 1987, the place is Hong Kong, China. Ryo Hazuki steps foot off a boat that took 2 years to arrive. Was the two year wait worth it? Read on to find out my opinion of this much anticipated epic of a game.
Not all that much has really changed since the original, but why change a good thing? Shenmue II combines many familiar sounds and screens that will make you feel right at home. The one change is the X button is used for any action instead of the A button we used in Shenmue I. You still control with the D-pad but you can use the analogue stick also. Ryo is equipped with his notebook, watch, Hazuki family rest, Phoenix Mirror, maps, and all his gatcha-gatcha collectables. Also all your money is magically converted to Hong Kong Dollars. Another...
THE GOOD: i love hearing the Japenese voices it makes it more realistic. the graphics are better than the first one.When my friend was over he said DANG! I can't tell the difference between the graphics with this and my X BOX!
THE BAD: You need an X BOX to complete the whole series.The music isn't as good as the first one.
SUMMARY: It's a must have. make sure you beat the first one or you will be lost.
THE GOOD: you have to complete four discs of the game, the QTE's the storyline and the graphics.
THE BAD: the controls are a bit anoying, have to probaly buy a Xbox to finish the whole series off.
SUMMARY: The first Shenmue was a master peace the QTE's story line when I finished the first one and I had to wait for a year for this second one and it was worth the wait more QTE's, good graphics, four discs to complete instead of three more interaction with charactors. as good as the orignal.
THE GOOD: this is a basic a second chapter it is just showing you the graphical power of the dreamcast but if you have not clocked shenmue not worth buying but if your a ture fan you wolud buy it if you plan to get x-box and have a dreamcast you should buy the whole collection
THE BAD: i like shemue one better any way lvels are too big
THE GOOD: Improved Grapgics over the oringinal. Story moves faster with alot more action. 10x bigger world to explore then the first.
THE BAD: Minor slow down at the beginning of the game at Worker's Peir but nowhere else in the game.
SUMMARY: Everything about this game screams perfection. If you thought Shenmue one was alittle slow then you are in for a treat with 2! There are 10x more QTE and free battles in the second game. The story movies along alot faster and you meet and befriend so many more people. The world(s) you get to explore are both massive. Half of one of them is equal to the size of the world in the first game and there are hundreds of more people to talk to in this game. Few key improvments I want to talk about is the tracking people you talk too, this comes in real handy because if you need to go somewhere and can't find it just ask a citizen walking around and they will walk you to where you want to go and you tag along behind them. another key point is the working as...
THE GOOD: storyline is perfect graphics amazing. gameplay has improved and 5 times! Bigger than the first one.
THE BAD: To many slow downs, game to short and its in japanese with english subtitle.
SUMMARY: After hearing that shenmue2 has been released i went to the shop straight away and brought it. than i start playin for the first time and thought amazing sega has done the magic again with amazing graphics gameplay and a host of new characters to meet and interact with. compered to the first shenmue it 5 times bigger which means you have a lot to explore make sure you play shenmue before you play shenmue2 so you know the storyline.
