Looks like it picked right off where the second game left off. I know that is going to be a turn off for some who just want to jump on the 3rd game without playing the others and ride the hype. I'm sort of glad they stuck to their guns and didn't try to follow trends and alter the game heavily. I will say they could have kept the heart of the game while still having better animations. There is no excuse for that.

Even as a massive Shenmue fan i would never buy a PS4 for one game.

I will wait until the Xbox version is announced and if that doesnt happen, then Yu doesn't get my money.

After watching those trailers, I don't think I can go back to Shenmue. The fighting looked okay, but the rest was not very appealing.

@xantufrog: The only word that's going around is that the epic exclusivity is for one year, but that means nothing for backers because they're not giving out steam codes for us.

Holy shit that looks bad. What's funny is there will be clowns saying Rockstar games suck while praising this shovelware.

@NathanDrakeSwag: the difference is that Rockstar spends millions and millions of dollars to make a boring game while Shenmue is being developed on a kickstarter budget and is for the fans.

Boring games that are rated 97/100 and sell more than everything else? Seems like the majority are not bored by them.

Shenmue is literally the definition of boring. Its a crappy forklift/errand simulator that bombed so badly in sales it required having the creator beg fans to fund the final installment. If this game wasn't called Shenmue people would be comparing it to Big Rigs or Life of Black Tiger.

Looking good. Can't wait to play it on steam next year.

@xantufrog Deep Silver put it up on their FAQ page that it will be released on steam "in the future."

Shenmue has better story and much better design than any of GTA game. none of GTA game has good gameplay mechanics and driving.

but yes game got 97 on metacritic. its best game ever despite its also most overrated series of all time.

Two different games. Shenmue is designed as a life-simulator and the old GTA3+ games (all I give a shit about) are designed to be arcade fun. In that regards they absolutely succeed.

GTA went downhill at San Andreas when bloat started to take effect with far more emphasis on being a life-simulator.

Well for better or worse, it looks like a new, old game. Like it's going to play exactly like Shenmue 1 and 2. In other words, garbage.

I won't lie. This looks like pure garbage on a visual level. But I can't wait to play through it for a closure I have been waiting on for years.

This past Saturday I noticed Shen 1&2 offered on GP. Figured I'd try playing Shen1 for a little while just for nostalgia sake. My goodness I had no idea it would suck me in and I just kept playing. Sunday I finally got on the bus to the harbor but not looking forward to my job as a forklift operator. lol

But man the ooze of nostalgia and the game is so adorable I'll likely play through both 1 and 2 as a refresher and now unlike before thinking I may need a Shen 3 fix just because I'v been sitting in that cave where 2 ends for I dunno, a couple decades. :P

Visuals look alright imo. Updated but not discording the original art-style.

Pretty sure this is what long-time fans would want.

I see...

I'd only look at getting this if the pulled all the original voice actors in from the original game (the US version that is). And of course, they kept the same script writers as well. They don't make them like that anymore.

It's funny how old looking graphics has caught some by surprise. This is an AA open world game.

Graphics ain't important.(Only casual gamers care about this.)

This is one of the weirdest reveals I've ever witnessed. To those of you who say it seems like it was released right after the sequel, you're right. lol

I'm still interested. My circle of friends still makes the "Ooooahhh" sound after drinking something, just like our hero above.

Quite ingenious in fact, make it look like it was released right after Shenmue II, so people looking at this series in the future will think it was released contiuously.
