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.

A Great Game
11 October 2005 | by tricolorpicturesSee all my reviews

"I think that shenmue II or shenmue I for that matter are the two biggest underrated games of ALL TIME. Now I think that Yu Suzuki went all out to make a story that would capture the viewer/players soul and take them on an adventure, and that it did. I think that "shenmue & shenmue II are the best video games of all time". I love the way the game is so free for you to do what ever you wan't. If you wan't to go talk to some of the many NPC in the game go for it, its that free. It took over 7 years with over 20 million$ For the game to be made then 2 years later Shenmue II came out. Both Underrated games. I love Shenmue and its story its so free.
