Description
Shenmue, a genre-busting work from Sega, is transcendent for both its beauty and its innovative game play. In a convergence of role-playing, fighting, and adventure elements, you play as Ryo, a young man who's come home to witness his father being fatally beaten by thugs. This event immediately sparks in him a quest for both revenge and an investigation into the mysterious jade amulet the thugs stole. You'll have to play detective to gather clues, such as possible motivations and whereabouts, from non playing characters. Not all of the people you question will be happy about you nosing around, so be prepared to fight and keep fighting. You'll need money for the quest, and there's plenty of minigame-style ways to get it--from forklift driving to casino gambling.

One of the Greatest Games Ever
by Ryan Laster 27 May 2008

If you haven’t read the title of this review already, I consider this one of the best games ever (the sequel is even better!) and is worth buying a Dreamcast for. Every thing in this title is dripping with quality – it cost millions of dollars, and it shows in every way, shape and form. This isn’t just another adventure game… it’s an experience that you will never forget.

Features
 
The game features vibrant 3-D graphics, which are nearly photo-realistic in their astounding attention to even subtle detail. For example, the sky background changes slowly to denote the passing daylight.
