This reminds me more of Sleeping Dogs than Shenmue 2. Funny coincidence :lol:

Yeah they always made the commercials for Shenmue really weird and misleading for some reason.
I get the "you can't trust anyone" message, but seriosly... A butcher with a machine gun?
At least the Jianmin type guy coming through the window is really funny. :lol:

Most of the Shenmue ads by SEGA tried to fool people into believing Shenmue is some kind of a cinematic open world beat em up game, where in actuality it is open world interactive storytelling and art, designed with real world elements and not as a video game, as a lifelike story-driven experience and not intended to be action-packed and skill-based (with slow pacing, times of waiting, sparse fighting events and mundane realism to embrace).

Thus, when people expected to play the former and bought it, they got disappointed because they encountered the latter, and as a consequence then they deemed it as 'boring, 'bad' et cetera; some even went to the other extreme side to cultivate in their minds a hatred for everything about it [like for reasons because they got cheated and/or because later they felt Shenmue was one of the reasons that SEGA went almost bankrupt (which we know is not true)].
