Last night, I finished one of the greatest games ever. Shenmue is a masterpiece. One minute you’re trying to find a cheap ticket to Hong Kong, and the next you’re fighting hundreds of gang members at once while only one man has your back. If you can stick it through to the third disc, things really start to pick up. All in all, it took me less than 20 hours of play time to finish Shenmue. Now I am ready to play the Xbox sequel, Shenmue 2. I hear that it too ends in a cliffhanger. It’s a shame because poor sales make a third game unlikely. However, I hear that there is hope of a PS3 re-release to enlighten viewers like you on the storyline, and to create interest in the series. Only time will tell if the rest of the planned 16 Shenmue chapters will be told. They’ve already done 5 of them.
