Did You Know?


The Shenmue series, as envisioned by creator Yu Suzuki, is made up of at least 16 chapters. The original Shenmue only covered the first chapter, while Shenmue II contains four chapters of the series. However, chapters included in Shenmue II are chapters 3 to 5. Chapter 2 is in neither game and only existed as part of a manga spinoff titled "Shenmue: Side Story" (originally published in the Japanese publication, Dorimaga). In this chapter, Ryo saves a little girl from Chai (the villain from the first game), who infiltrated the ship Ryo was in. This explains some of the dialogue between Ryo and the girl's mother in the beginning of the second game. See more »


Wuying Ren: [after Ryo beats up the guys that spotted him while he and Ren were intruding in the Yellow Head Building] That's right. Always clean up the messes you make.
Ryo Hazuki: Shut up!

Just as the first
22 October 2001 | by (Brasília, Brasil) – See all my reviews

The opening is fantastic, with beautiful real-time graphic scenes, but is not revolutionary. Even with some mistakes and graphic failures, the graphic is excellent with a high grade of details. Women, main characters, motos and children are well designed, with good texture. Can not be said about the men characters. It is as good as the first, maybe better. If SEGA releases it in English, we, owners of Dreamcast, will be happy to continuing play the Saga to achieve it's end!
