Overall: I didn't like it enough to try and finish it. I was not impressed with this game. The story line is there and the graphics are okay, but the backdrop sucks, the fighting scenes suck, the camera angle sucks, etc... The cut scenes are good, like a movie, but overall actually walking through the buildings and outside are nothing to write home about. You don't have to have much of a strategy to play the game, just slash, slash, slash. I was bored. I won't be purchasing this game. It did nothing for me. I like being up close and personal with the enemies when I fight them, not high above them.

Gameplay: Hmmm, slash, slash, forward, more slashing...... maybe run down a corridor or into a cave....... slash, slash, slash, etc.... not cutting edge. Maybe they should have just left in on PS2.

Graphics: I know the game is fantasy with monsters and demons galore, but adding that touch of realism brings a lot to the table. The game doesn't have that X Factor for me. Realism, awesome graphics, detailed characters, scenery, backdrops, etc. are what make a game great.

Audio: Nothing to complain about here. The sound was good. I could hear everything and the music was pleasant to listen to.

Suggestions: Go look into some of the other games that XBox has brought to the table, then go back and improve on some important elements that this game seems to be lacking. Capcom can do better.

Overall Score: 5.0 / 10 Shenmue 2

Overall: I kind of judged a book by it's cover. I had never heard of this game before renting it. The cover was appealing and the back gave me the impression of good graphics/realism. I am not one to be into Kung Fu type games, so it was all fluke that I picked Shenmue II. It was a wonderful game and of all the games I've played on XBox, this has gone to the top of my list. I love the realism, the story line, the scenery, the people, etc.... I hope I can find more RPG's like this. I love the fact that you can talk to everyone. I enjoy the weather changes and the day/night changes. It's nice to see a game that makes the player have to search out for clues, people, and places. Too often a game just warps you to wherever you need to get to next or sends you through with blinders just killing everyone in your path. This game has tons of entrigue and makes you want to see what you need to do next. It was great!!! I hope the next one won't take 2 years to create. I definitely recommend this to RPG fans. BUY IT! I am.

Gameplay: The QTE's were different. That was new for me, but I quickly caught on and it became fun. I loved running all over town. The chase scenes were great. I liked earning money through the mini games. I didn't really like the cargo work, but only because of the characters voice and the sound he made when he would step back. That's not natural. All of the characters were great. Ryo's character was easy to manipulate and the fight scenes were great. It was eXtremely cinematic. I felt like I was watching a movie. I like the mystery, the hunting, everything....

Graphics: Awesone!! I felt like I was in all of the locations. I felt like I was a real part of the game. The backfrops were beautiful. The people were all different and so detailed, even down to scars and wrinkles. The buildings, water, streets, and businesses were all unique. They did a wonderful job creating Shenmue's world. The weather changed, day turned into night, clouds moved, water rippled, etc.

Audio: Sound was good. I like hearing the bussle of all of the towns people, the harbor people working, kids playing, birds, bells, etc... They paid a lot of attention to creating a realistic backdrop for the game. It makes you feel like you're in the game. Music was very beautiful and it was nice to hear some rock music here and there. I hope they add more contempory music to the next game.

Suggestions: Please don't take 2 years to create Shenmue III. I'm ready to play it now. Create even more characters and keep it as real as Shenmue II. Please surprise everyone!! Everyone has been arguing over who's going to be who. Shut us all up and twist the story in a way only that Mr. Suzuki can!

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10
