There are very few games with as rabid and as old fans as Shenmue. The original game released in 1999 for the Sega Dreamcast, and quickly developed a reputation of having a living, breathing world with more things to do than any game had ever attempted. With the long awaited third game being released within the next year, the interest in the original games has skyrocketed. The series’ critics have been rather vocal along with new players' opinions split. Having replayed the original Shenmue, I have opinions.
