Shenmue 1 & 2





Shenmue 1 & 2  


I am extremely appreciative of Family Friendly Gaming for purchasing a copy of Shenmue 1 & 2 on the Playstation 4. This Dreamcast emulated pair of video games is also on the Personal Computer, and Xbox One. Sega is the publisher and D3T is the developer of Shenmue 1 & 2. If you missed these games on the Dreamcast then you might be interested in them on the modern consoles and PC.

I remember these games from back in the day. They were the talk of the town due to the story, all of the people, and realistic feeling areas. Shenmue 1 & 2 have not aged well though. Man things have gotten better since then. In fact the conversations are laughable now. The dialogue is cringy and the graphics are certainly showing their age. The Quick Time Events (QTE) feel boring.

The issues families will most definitely have with Shenmue 1 & 2 are violence, lack of attire, enticement to lust, gambling, eastern religious content, bad language, sluggish controls and more. Expect a ton of sound byte voice acting in Shenmue 1 & 2. We can sprint with the R2 button in Shenmue 1 & 2. Sadly we keep getting stopped for some new story scene to unfold.

Shenmue 1 & 2 lets us make choices. Give money to someone for good luck or not. Do we arm wrestle someone and lose money or not. There are a variety of very unfriendly characters in Shenmue 1 & 2. What did we ever do to you? Why are they so hostile there? Whomever wrote these games really has a low opinion of certain areas and cultures.

The animations of the walking in Shenmue 1 & 2 feels wrong on so many levels. The real time events were one of the few things that made Shenmue 1 & 2 interesting. I do not feel Shenmue 1 & 2 is worth the price of admission. It is probably cheaper to buy this than a Dreamcast and the original games. I recommend families pass on Shenmue 1 & 2.
