Shenmue was always janky, even for back then. It's the voice acting that I don't think I'd be able to get past.

I would say that people who played it before and enjoyed it will be just fine. Newcomers can have trouble.

Yea, same. Plus the poor recording quality. Sounds like poorly compressed mono sound. Idk, most of the DC games haven't aged well at all. This one is no exception. I was hoping they'd at least address the sound issues, but yea... Sega is always going for the minimum effort, just like Campcom.

    GriftGFX @Seth: If anything I've heard that Odyssey compounds those issues. I've heard plenty of people say that there's TOO MUCH content. (5 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth I'll keep playing once per week, but the Ubi's usual world building, gigantic maps filled with crap is not changed since last gen and is kinda off putting. (5 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth @AndreasZ94: i do like the more responsive controls of the main characters, but the world is lifeless coming from RDR2, horse controls and animations are laughable and generation behind competition. (5 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth @AndreasZ94: I did tried AC odyssey for a few hours. It's weird, that game is extremely pretty (on PC) and i like some of the side quests and the dialogue choices. (6 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth My second most played game this gen after Witcher 3. (6 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth @AndreasZ94: i hit 200 hours at around 92% in RDR2. Funny thing the stats doesn't even count many stranger missions (for example for 100% you need only 10 of them) and other optional stuff. (6 Hours ago)

    b0vril In RDR2 a horse died on a main road, every time I past it the carcass was more rotten. Now there are just bones. (9 Hours ago)
