I give it that the art is very fine, and has good animation and effects, but the characters look like they've been ripped out of a psp game... from 2004:

That ____ is nasty.

It looks good from a distance, but the close-ups are kinda bad. Scale is excellent though. Shame the bearded character isn't the main character... would've been nice to have a bearded adult main character for a change.

Agree with you on the bearded main character.
Game could be good thought. Always enjoyed his games,especially I have fond memories of Xenogears..Disc 1 !
Amazing game...Disc 2 was just a shame. So much for time constrains on production,and deadlines for games. Could have been one of the best Ever RPG's otherwise. Epic !

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Not sure if they've improved much these days. (43 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A lot of Japanese made games were guilty of that whenever voice acting become possible. I mean, aye, it was always cheese, but you tolerated it more back then (44 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The voice acting was always regarded as pure cheese. (45 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, and the voice acting, something which back then, was great. Today it's just pure cheese. Sound design is often neglected to be mentioned over visuals when talking about progress in games. (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX This is what Shenmue combat looks like. It's not heavily based on QTE despite the game making QTE a buzzword: [url] (47 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah a lot of it was very clunky. It did often boil down to QTE's to resolve "disputes" and chases, if I recall correctly. Mad how a lot of games to this day still do that. (48 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Still one of the better parts of the game. And it's not a bad game, but it's definitely a "good for its time" game.. which means.. maybe not actually good :D (48 minutes ago)
