Shenmue is an action-adventure game, originally released in Japan in 1999 for the Sega Dreamcast, and then localized in North America and Europe.

Gameplay[edit]

At the time, Shenmue was without a doubt the most immersive and realistic game ever created, and with a rumoured $70 000 000 budget, it is easy to see why. The game's creator Yu Suzuki coined the term "Free Reactive Eyes Entertainment" (FREE), to describe his venture into a previously-uncharted depth of interactivity and detail in a game world.

Story[edit]

Following the story of Ryo Hazuki's quest for revenge against the man who killed his father, Shenmue takes the player to a quiet suburb of Yokosuka (Japan) in the late 1980s, where you must track down the mysterious martial artist Lan Di, and avenge your father's death.
