It was supposed to be a hit, but the reviewers say simply: Shenmue III could have been much better. Despite this, Yu Suzuki does not intend to abandon his series, which this year returned after 18 years.
Shenmue III game after the premiere – reviewers: it could have been better
Shenmue III is the latest installment of the series, which at the turn of the century contributed to the fact that today open-ended action games are so popular. To find out what later Ryo Hazuki encountered on his way, we had to wait 18 years and opinions about whether it was worth it are quite divided. Some reviewers see a lot of good features in this title, while others continue to complain.
Likeable heroes, exciting duels and an interesting story are some of the biggest advantages of the game Shenmue III, which this week debuted on PCs and PlayStation 4 consoles. Artificially elongated plot, technical solutions from two decades ago and not always eye-catching visuals made, however, that the final pickup is not as good as it could be. The result is an average rating of just 6.9 out of 10.
There are no announcements yet, but there are plans for Shenmue IV to come into existence
Creating this new installment, however, Yu Suzuki apparently had a great time, because he already announces that he intends to develop Shenmue IV. In the fourth part we get to know the final of the story, whose main character is Ryo. Of course, it is not surprising that the author has such plans – the question is: do we really need it? Perhaps there are series that are not worth resurrecting, and there are titles that should be abandoned so as not to deprive them of good fame.
Or maybe you do not share this skepticism? After all, one of the strengths of Shemue is the story and maybe it would be good to know its ending? We are curious what your opinion is on this topic – let me know in the comments!
