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.
