It was released a week earlier in the UK i believe. Either that or i got the dates mixed up. But i can still remember the rainy day in school and being told it was on the shelves down in Game. I left school early and ran all the way down to town to get it. Also remember that first night i played it, i went for a few pints in the local club and came home and worked the lucky hit stand at the bottom of the Come Over Guest House street and thought how amazing the game was.

I remember being a junior in high school pysically running over to the store about 10 miles away to get it cause I didnt have a car yet. While I was running on my way a friend who had a car saw me, picked me up and took me over. That same friend I actually just ran into a year ago and remembered the time he picked me up and all the crazy drunken matches of halo 1 we had. Those were good years.

I got it for my 20th birthday in 2003 before I had an Xbox because after finishing my 24 hour marathon wih the first I had to have it. Then got the Xbox just to play Shenmue II after watching the movie and the credits had scenes from II. I played that mother fucker for a good 18 or so hours straight.

Ahhhh this brings back similar memories for me.. I remember being the only person who pre-ordered the game at gamestop. I was so exited for it, that I didn't want everyone else to buy it before I could get there. Too bad when I went to pick up my copy I was the first one to buy it :oops:

i bought it a few years later on the xbox but never played it. i heard how bad the voice acting was & thought it would be best to remember shenmue 2 as it was on the dreamcast.

to be honest, i have not played shenmue 1/2 in many years - im trying to forget it, so i can play it fresh (maybe when HD comes out)

It's not as bad as everyone makes out. Don't get me wrong, it ain't good either, but neither was the original Shenmue at the end of the day. You'll defo get a few laughs here and there though.

Btw, it kinda does my head in when peeps say about the Japanese version. The voice acting in that one's probably as bad as the English dub, but we just don't realise.
