Trivia

Microsoft struck a deal with Sega to have Shenmue 2 to be exclusive to the Xbox in the US. As a result, Electronic Boutique imported the PAL (European/Australian) version of Shenmue 2 for the Dreamcast and became one of the most imported titles in history and is the only import game ever to be sold at Electronics Boutique. As a result of this, the Xbox version only achieved moderate success. See more »

Alternate Versions

The US version was originally to be released on the Sega Dreamcast in 2001; however, Sega's decision to pull out of the hardware business led to its cancellation and therefore was only released in Japan and Europe. Shenmue II was released on the Microsoft Xbox in October of 2002, which included English dubbing, a screen filter mode that allows the background colors to be changed, and a snapshot feature that lets you take photos of just about anything in the game at any time.

Just as the first
22 October 2001 | by Thiago_MoysesSee 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!
