Even though we have only seen 30% of the whole game, we have been playing for more than 15 hours (possibly more than 20 even) and we have been enjoying every minute of it. The game is inspired by many other titles, like Far Cry, Uncharted, Tomb Raider, Assassin's Creed, The Witcher 3 to name but a few, but everything it does, it does well. We have a review in progress on the French side if you are interested, the following videos aiming at illustrating the things we mention. Today's extracts are short and contain no spoilers whatsoever as they were recorded in the open world and show no cutscenes. Update: Colors are indeed too saturated in the PS4 Pro videos, due to a bug of the console when we switched to our capture set-up.
Note: The PS4 Pro Combat video was recorded at 1080p while the game was played at 4K. Recording lossless 4k has proven very unstable, so we only used the bits that were ok. Needless to say that it was too difficult to do so in a combat scene.
I love Yu Suzuki, but Shenmue's most lasting influences are quick time events and memes. (15 minutes ago)

@b0vril: I'm sure there will be that too. And I wish I was kidding, but somehow I think Ubisoft will find a way. lol (5 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: lol, I read that as "far-right mechanics". (6 Hours ago)
There will also be a map editor. And you will be able to do fishing - which you kinda could in Far Cry 4, but that was using guns and explosives. (7 Hours ago)
There's a lot of details and 4 trailers inside. You will be able to play as either a man or a woman, and choose the color of your skin. You will also be able to play co-op, just like Far Cry 4. (7 Hours ago)
