Shenmue is a unique gaming experience in the fact that it is very different from the typical games of today. It delivers an experience based on Martial Arts, revenge, love, despair and desire. It heavily focuses on the Asian cultures of which most of it is often either based in China and/or Hong Kong. Sadly, perhaps due to this Shenmue II sold rather poorly and thus for a massive 18 long years the whole series was left on a cliffhanger, with no mention of another game to help give it closure in sight, this obviously left a lot of fans ourselves included with a somewhat disappointing feeling and taste in our mouths. However, thankfully after a long wait and a lot of faith and hope a third Shenmue game was indeed announced, though it needed to be backed by fans in order to actually happen.
