Retro Review: Shenmue | Dracula's Cave

DC - "Back in 1999 Sega spent $47 million making Shenmue, and looking back this was arguably money well spent. It’s a shame we don’t currently see that amount of cash being funnelled into games that are equally ambitious and innovative, but Shenmue walks a dangerous line and I can see why others have been unwilling to follow. It’s too advanced for it’s own good, and because of this remains an utterly unique and compelling experience today."

My favourite game of all time, with Deus Ex (2000), 2nd and Mass Effect 2, 3rd

I just realised my favourite games of all time are Hybrid RPG's

Almost the same like me, bro - for me, Deus Ex 1 tops the list of my all time favorites, followed by Shenmue, Mass Effect 2 and some other DOS games (Crusader: No Remorse and No Regret, Day Of The Tentacle...). :)

I don't think anyone can deny that Lucasarts produced some of the greatest games of all time.
Day of the tentactle, sam and max, full throttle, monkey island and my favourite Grim Fandango!

"impossible to play without a guide"

This is why today's gamers use almost no brain power. This game was way playable without a guide but only if you took the time to explore, interact and think.

Over-all though good review.

One of my favorite games of all time. A true master piece and an evolution into the future of gaming.

Wow! What a flashback! I still got this game stored w another 50+ Dreamcast games in my closet. Is a shame none of my old Dreamcast consoles are functional w a faulty optical drive. Gonna look the internet for replacement parts, if I can fix them, no doubt Shenmue is gonna be the first on my long list for a retro replay.

Kind of miss those times... Code Veronica, Crazy Taxy, Jet Set Radio, Power Stone, Sonic, Chu Chu Rocket, ST:Alpha3, Virtua Fighter, Skies of Arcadia, NFL2k... Lol! I really miss those times!

I can't remember online for Chu Chu Rocket, but I remember countless night playing Phantasy Star with my pals at college! Lol! Messy, laggy, slow... But somehow, still fun.
