Never Played Shenmue? Watch Us Play The First Four Hours


With Shenmue 3's Kickstarter officially funded, numerous people in Game Informer's community sent in requests for complete Super Replay playthroughs of the first two games in the Shenmue series. Several Game Informer staffers also expressed interest in either revisiting this series or seeing it for the first time. Since we already have numerous Super Replay projects in the works, yet wanted to get a Shenmue playthrough going now, we decided to record it as a crowd-driven experiment of sorts. If you like what you see, and want more of it, we'll return with more episodes. Just let us know in the comments section below or on YouTube.

Yup, just as boring as I remember it to be.
They should have showed this vid BEFORE they put up the kick starter. I wonder if they would have made their millions. Sony was right to tread lightly.
Nostalgia is a b**ch.

Games of this type have improved a thousand fold. Lets hope the devs have it in them to understand that.

As a long time Shenmue fan i will agree with you that the first disc of the game is quite slow but once you get to the Harbour then its gets really good. Shenmue II has some truly amazing bits in it.

Sony must be kicking themselves that they had the chance to make Shenmue III after seeing the success of the kickstarter & didnt. Sega poisoned & cursed there own product thats why no one wanted it. Fact is if you release a game on 2 failed consoles & expect success but when it doesnt come blame the game, you are a fool.

That makes no sense at all! And I never played Shenmue. I'm pretty sure those who supported the kickstarter loved the previous games.

Your comment really makes no sense.

Never played Shenmue... but no way in hell will I watch someone else play Shenmue (or any game) for 4 hours.

Well... might jump through the video and see how it plays.

You're going to be bored out of mind watching Shenmue. It's better to just play it yourself honestly.

Never played Shemmue? Well instead of obtaining and playing it, just watch us play for 4 hours. Haha, what?
