Trivia

Yu Suzuki originally wrote Shenmue with 16 chapters and originally intended to have the series span 4-5 games. However, with only moderate success achieved with Shenmue (Chapter 1), Shenmue 2 contained chapters 3-5 in one game and some parts of the intended game were cut out. The time Ryo spends on the ship traveling from Japan to Hong Kong was meant to be part of the game (Chapter 2). See more »

Probably the best game ever
1 May 2003 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews



Probably the best game ever. I first played it on Segas DreamCast. I was stunned. The game was on every way perfect. If you like realistic and games you don't finish the same day you got it, Shenmue is for you.
