Shenmue 3 – The Review – Game Sack

Shenmue 3 – The Review – Game Sack

(Game Sack Theme) – Hello and welcome to Game Sack. (mumbles) No, this isn’t right, hold on. Hello and welcome to Game Sack. Yes, Shenmue 3 is finally here and it’s available to
play, and yes, it is real. I’ve been waiting 17 years for this. In fact, there’s been more time since Shenmue 2 and 3’s release date, than there was between
Shenmue 1 and the late ’80s, when the series takes place. I’m a huge Shenmue fan. I’ve played through parts one
and two many many times each. They’re some of my favorite games ever. And thanks to a KickStarter campaign that raised over six million dollars, Shenmue 3 was finally
able to enter development. So, does it live up? Is it worth your time? Well, that’s what I’m here to tell you. Also, I’m wearing a Shenmue 3 shirt, so that totally qualifies
me to review the game. Let’s go. (Bob’s Pizza Theme from Shenmue) Shenmue 3 is finally here. will you look at that? That’s just amazing! This game is available on
Windows and the PlayStation 4. As a console gamer, it should
come as absolutely no surprise that I’m playing the PS4 version. It is worth mentioning
that for the PC version they abruptly switched from
Steam to the Epic Games Store, likely because a large
amount of money was involved. People didn’t like that at all and I can definitely understand that. But it didn’t affect me as
a console gamer thankfully so this is the version I’m talking about. It’s also worth mentioning
that I completely avoided any and all things about this game leading up to its release. I muted the words “Shenmue” and the like everywhere I could on social media. I didn’t look at art or
watch trailers or play demos. As a huge Shenmue fan, I
wanted to go into this fresh. (slow dreamy music) Anyway, the game begins mere
seconds after Shenmue 2 ends. You now tag around with Shenhua, who was the girl you tagged around with on disc four of Shenmue 2. She has since changed her clothes. You, however, have not. Nor should you ever
despite being able to do so later in the game. You’re Ryo Hazuki, you’re
meant to wear a white shirt and a leather jacket and
blue jeans and nothing else. Gone is any of the supernatural stuff they seemed to be building up
to at the end of Shenmue 2. You spend the first half of the
game or so in Bailu Village, which is where you were on your way to in disc four of Shenmue 2, but you never got to see it then. The village is actually
pretty big with lots of paths that veer off into other areas. There are lots of people to talk to and, of course, things to buy and sell. One thing that this
village has in abundance are women who are older
than you who really, really wanna, well, how shall
we say, jump your bones. – Hey! – What is it, handsome? – I’m looking for a shop
that sells steamed buns. – If you’re hungry, why didn’t you say so? Come over to my place and I’ll
feed you until you’re full. – Actually, I– – [Joe] I mean, come on, Ryo, you’re not exactly going
steady with anyone. – No, no. – [Joe] The gameplay is
mostly classic Shenmue, asking people where this
person or that location is, then working your way there. Once you get there you find out that you need to go find
someone or something else. In fact, this game suffers from the “Just one more thing” syndrome, if there is such a thing. Have you ever talked
to someone in real life who just keeps going right when you think the conversation is done? Well, this game is kind of similar. Just when you think you’ve
accomplished a goal, the game throws just one more thing before that goal is actually
achieved and you can move on. Sure, Shenmue 1 and 2
did this a lot as well, but part 3 here really takes
it to a whole new level. As a result, it feels like the
game is very slow to start, but it eventually does pick up… a bit. Like the previous games, you need to make sure to sleep at night. But new to this one are
the eating mechanics. That’s right, you’ve gotta eat. Your energy is constantly
draining over time and if it gets too low,
you can’t even run. It’ll never drain completely
empty on its own though. To counter this, you
need to buy lots of food to restore your HP. Certain foods will restore more HP so make sure you get the
most bang for your buck because earning money isn’t easy. That’s right, you have jobs here, too! At first, all you can
really do is chop wood. This is fun and easy. – Oops! Mm-hmm. Oops! – [Joe] I like how music
from After Burner plays when you really start to do well. – Good! Yes! Mm-hmm. – [Joe] However, you
can only make maybe $70 if you do amazingly well. Just about every activity
in the game has a timer that you can see in the
upper right of the screen as it winds down. Eventually there are other jobs, the best of which is the forklift driving. This isn’t all day like
it was in Shenmue 1 and the route is super short, but you can make 320 bucks per stint. (Tomato Convenience Store theme) There’s also gambling and
games that you can play. Like Turtle racing. Yeah, super fun! The good news is that Lucky Hit is back. The physics feel very
different than Lucky Hit from Shenmue 2, but it’s still quite good. But it’s a lot harder to
do well this time around because there are fewer
winnable slots at the bottom. Quick Time Events are back and
you’ve gotta be really fast. Fortunately, you’re able
to redo them right away if you fail, so even if
you’re a slow old person you should be totally fine. There’s also a leveling-up
aspect to this game. The previous entries kind
of had something similar where you could level up your moves but this goes way beyond that. Each new move you get should be mastered by sparring with someone. This is generally pretty easy. Once a move is mastered,
your attack level goes up. You can also do simple yet
very repetitive exercises with practice dummies. These take absolutely forever, but will level up your endurance, giving you a longer life bar. And you absolutely want
the longer life bar, especially since it’s always draining. Both of these traits level
up your overall kung fu level which will help you beat enemies. If you wanna waste your time,
there are games you can play. These range from very simple
wack-a-mole type things to this weird new car game where you try to outrun the police. There are plenty of new
games to play as well. Even the QTE games make a reappearance. Sadly, there are no actual
Sega arcade games in here. I don’t know why, I mean,
there’s Space Harrier posters all over the place, and Excite QTE has Sega label all over it. And they even tease us
with Virtua Fighter! The closest thing to an actual videogame is this weird egg/duck/Virtua
Fighter thing, which only consists of
one match per machine. What really sucks though, is
that there’s no darts game! I mean, I’m glad that Lucky
Hit is back, but no darts? That was one of my favorites
from the first two games! Ah well, at least there are ways to waste your time if you want. Okay, so we talked about most
of the basics of Shenmue 3, however in 2000 Shenmue’s graphics were sure a sight to behold
and every character was voiced. Does Shenmue 3 blow you
away in the similar fashion? Also, how are the controls,
the story, and the pacing? Will it keep you glued to the TV or does it just drag on and on? Well, let’s check out
the rest of Shenmue 3. (slow dramatic music) Where the hell’d the disc go? Oh, yeah, I already put it in there at the beginning of the episode. I’m an idiot. How did this get back over here? Oh well. In the first two games,
you moved with the D-pad and ran by pressing the R-trigger. Here, the controls have been changed. You can no longer move
with the D-pad at all, but the R-trigger still makes you run. You steer with the left analog stick and can change the camera
with the right analog stick which can also change your
direction if you’re running. Basically, like a third-person shooter. It feels pretty natural. The fighting has been
completely changed around. Again, you can no longer use the D-pad which, as you can imagine isn’t a good way to play a fighting game. Here, though, you barely need it as there are no Street Fighter-style special moves to pull off. The analog stick basically just aims you, and the right stick will select your foe if you’re fighting more
than one at a time. You basically just have button sequences that you need to remember. You can assign these to the
R2 button and pull them off with just a press, and select between then with the L1 and R1 buttons. L2 blocks. I recommend stepping
away from your opponent if you’re not attacking. Once you get used to it, it’s
pretty easy to win fights. There are a couple of bosses in the game where even if you deplete
their life bar, you lose. You’re supposed to lose at these fights. That’s because the story wants
you to find a super-magic way to beat them, even though you clearly have no problem
winning, but whatever. (grunts) – [Ryo] What was that? – Okay, I think I can
recall some things now. – [Joe] Speaking of the story, this part is kind of disappointing. Most of the game is spent worrying about Shenhua’s missing father. Barely any attention at all is given to Ryo’s story
of avenging his father. In fact, there’s really not
much story going on here at all. There really aren’t any big reveals here. In fact, most of it we already know. Shenhua herself is completely useless except for one single point in the game. The previous game really built her up like maybe she has some sort
of special abilities and perhaps she probably does, but they’re barely utilized here. Still, when the story
parts do actually happen, it’s pretty awesome. They really padded this game out to make it as long as they could. That’s why this game suffers from the “Just one more thing” syndrome that I mentioned earlier. It often feels like I’m not really getting anywhere in the game. In fact, I figured that
this game was so low-budget compared to the first
one, that the entire game was gonna take place in Bailu Village and just drag on and on. (dramatic music)
(bangs) Thankfully that’s not the case, and eventually you get to
the Chinese city of Niaowu. This place is pretty
big and it makes me feel as if I’m wandering around
Wan Chai from Shenmue 2. It’s probably not as big as
Wan Chai, but it’s close. Maybe it feels that way because there are so many stairs here. So many stairs. These are here to slow
your progress a bit, so that the game can
load, at least I imagine. The inventory management has
been completely overhauled. It’s pretty simple once
you get used to it, but there is one downfall. If you buy an absolutely delicious cola from a vending machine, you
no longer get to watch Ryo enjoying the refreshing beverage. All that happens when you use the drink is that you get some hit points back. Boring! As I said before, earning
money can take a while and there are a couple
of very expensive items that you’ll need to buy. I feel that the prices
are probably so high in order to pad the length of the game. That way you spend more time
workin’ to get that money. When this happens, the
game really pushes you to visit a fortune teller so that you can win big at gambling. – Bet on the number you get
and you’re bound to win! – [Joe] Yeah, there’s just
one huge problem with that. In order to gamble,
you need to buy tokens, then you gamble with the
tokens instead of money. Then you need to take
the tokens that you win to the Prize Exchange to exchange them for a small selection of different prizes. Then you need to take
those prizes to a pawn shop to sell them for money. This is needlessly complicated. Honestly, the forklift is the
fastest way to earn money. Still, as long as you’re
not an impatient gamer, this is a very peaceful if
sometimes repetitive game. – [Ryo] Dried herbs and nothing else. (slow dark music) This design. – [Joe] Shenmue 3 runs
on the Unreal 4 Engine, which absolutely sucks compared
to the Unreal 7 Engine. I say that for the benefit of you watching from the future trying
to brush up on the series right before Shenmue 4 comes out in 2037. Anyway, I’ve gotta say,
this game looks gorgeous. Maybe that’s just me being used to the original graphics
from the year 2000, but this just trounces them,
of course, you’d expect that. There is a ton of rich color here and detailed objects are everywhere. They did pretty well for having a budget that was actually lower
than the original game. At first, I thought Ryo
looked kind of weird. And well, maybe he does. I think his eyes are perhaps
a bit too close together compared to the original model. Other than that though he
looks like Ryo and he’s fine. His clothes look way
better now, obviously. Some of the oddities of the original games are still present here though. People will often suddenly
fade in from non-existence, especially once you get to Niaowu. There’s also a lot fewer
people wandering around compared to the first two games, and some of the ones that
are you can’t even talk to. Oh, and sometimes the camera
will snap to a new position for no reason several
times during a conversation and it feels weird. The draw distance is very good, however the detail distance is not. You’ll see things like
foliage and other details drawing in as you approach. This problem is exacerbated
once you get to Niaowu. Sadly, the frame rate isn’t locked at all. In Bailu Village it often
runs at 60 frames per second but drops a bit when
there’s too much going on. Usually the frame rate is
pretty good here, though. Once again, since Niaowu
is much more complex, the frame rate takes
a pretty big hit here. It rarely runs at 60. I found that if you’re running
on a PlayStation 4 Pro, if you turn off supersampling
and turn Boost Mode on, it can help a bit. At least I think it does? It still drops plenty of frames though. Still, the takeaway is that this game is pretty good-looking all around despite having rather simple geometry in a lot of its polygon models. The music is absolutely awesome
and I’d expect nothing less. A lot of it is from Shenmue 1 or 2, and there’s lots of
new stuff here as well. (slow dreamy music) Even some stuff that
was originally composed for the first two games but
never used, is in use here. However, the music doesn’t loop properly, so there’s a big ol’ gap of silence before any given track restarts. Sometimes the music even forgets to play and you’re just running around listening to only the
environmental sound effects and your footsteps. (foot steps) I assume this is a bug that
will be fixed in the future, long after everyone’s
already beaten the game, at least I hope it will be fixed. Everything is voiced
and I’m happy to report there’s still a lot of that
trade mark stilted dialog. – You know, it’s rude to turn down a lady, but you’re good looking, so
I’ll let you off the hook today. – Uh, hi. – [Joe] But it seems like they
got much better voice actors for the majority of the NPCs. – Hi there. – I’ve heard about you. You’re Shenhua’s friend, aren’t you? – [Joe] Sadly, a lot of
the returning characters have been recast, but not all of them. For example, you can call
some of the old characters from the first two games on the phone and they sound nothing like they used to. – [Tom] China? Why so far from home? – [Joe] Yeah, that is not Tom. (Dragon Street (night) music) One thing that’s very, very, very annoying is that you can’t skip through the dialog. I can read a lot faster than I can listen and sometimes I don’t wanna hear the same old thing again and again. What’s weird, though, is that sometimes you can skip the dialog, but
only with certain characters, and if you load a save you can’t
skip through them any more. Maybe this is another bug? I’m glad I beat the game
before they fixed it. Actually, I’m not. All in all, it probably took
me around 20 hours or so to beat the game, which feels longer than either of the first two games. I’m only guessing here, as
there’s no playtime counter on the game’s save files that I know of. Still, this game is
longer than the first two with less substance. And it seems that there might
be some DLC in the future. I hate that but, yeah, I’ll buy it. I can’t resist. So, is this game worth playing through? Hell yeah it is, at least for me. But let’s be real here,
this isn’t as good, as either Shenmue 1 or 2. As a result, I’m kind of disappointed. We waited so long for this. Yes, I’m happy that I’m
playing it, it’s a great game, but I want more story. Aside from that, it’s still
very, very much “Shenmue.” With the first two games,
I started replaying them immediately once I beat them, just because I missed playing them. So will I play through Shenmue 3 again? Well, yes, I already am. (slow traditional music) (swooshes) – Who exactly are these people? – So, that’s my take on Shenmue 3. I feel that this game expects
you to be very familiar with the first two games
before starting this one. However, if you’re not,
there’s a digest movie, that you can watch from the title screen to help catch you up to speed. Also, this is a great
excuse to take your time and play through Shenmue 1 and 2 HD, which is readily available on any platform that you can get Shenmue 3 on. When it comes down to it, Shenmue 3 just didn’t do much for me
as the first two games did. But I still found it very endearing and totally worth my time. I recommend it if you like to
play through relaxing games, and yes, I am glad it exists. I just hope that Shenmue 4
focuses more on the story if it’s ever gonna be made. Anyway, what are you
guys think of Shenmue 3? Let me know. In the meantime, thank you
for watching Game Sack. (Game Sack Credits Theme) (slow traditional music) I believe I may have
had too many Jet Colas. Perhaps this would be a
good time to relieve myself. (slow traditional music) (piddles)
Oops. (piddles)
That’s it. (piddles)
Mm-hmm. (piddles)
Ai-yaah! (piddles)
Perfect! (energetic After Burner music) (piddles)
Yes! (piddles)
Ahh! (slow traditional music)

Gran Turismo Sport Single-player Gameplay | PlayStation Underground

TAKU: Kyoto is my favorite city
in the whole wide world. RYAN CLEMENTS: Oh, personally
you’re favorite city, not just to race in. TAKU: Most beautiful town in
Japan. It’s almost like Boston. RYAN: Actually, I vacationed
there once. TAKU: Isn’t it a nice city? RYAN: It’s beautiful there. CARTER: Oh, you failed. RYAN: But you failed.
TAKU: What? RYAN: I would like you to try
one more time. [INTRO MUSIC PLAYING] RYAN: Hello, my friends, and welcome back to PlayStation
Underground. On today, a very special
episode, we are playing Gran Turismo
Sport, and I am joined by Taku and
Carter. Gentlemen, welcome to the
program. TAKU: Hello.
CARTER: Hello, hello. RYAN: Thank you for being here. I think we’re going to go back
into the main menu, and we want to show off today
Campaign, which is the solo experience
that is coming to GT sport. And there’s a lot of pieces to
it. So walk me through a little bit about what we have going on in
Campaign. TAKU: So Gran Turismo
historically is not Gran Turismo unless there is a lengthy
single-player mode. RYAN: Absolutely. TAKU: And we call this one
Campaign Mode. In the previous games we would
either call it Curator Mode or Simulation Mode. But the whole purpose of this
mode is to kind of educate you through the game, get the basic strategies and
basic driving techniques. The drills, there’s like a 150
drills overall in this mode. RYAN: You’re saying it will keep
me busy? TAKU: Yeah.
Keep you busy. Also, by playing those drills,
they’re nice and short almost like mini-games, and by going
through them, you naturally acquire driving
techniques and what to look out for, learn the tracks. RYAN: So essentially it’s custom
tailored for me to actually learn how to race.
TAKU: Yeah. And it actually starts off with
a really easy drill like in driving school. The first ones you’ll go through
are start and stop. Like, just apply the brakes. RYAN: We don’t need to show that
one. I think our users probably know
how to start and stop. TAKU: As you can see I’ve done a
couple here. RYAN: Look at these beautiful
medals that you got. TAKU: They’re like mirrorballs,
you know, gold, silver, and bronze. RYAN: I’m ready to dance just looking at all those disco
balls. TAKU: So I’ll go into — try one
of the missions. Mission Challenge is they put
you into situations that might happen in a race, whether you’re trying to pass
somebody in a tight corner, or you try drifting around a
rally track. They try to give you a mission
to clear — to get you set for a real race. RYAN: To earn those medals, to
learn some skills, and to also enjoy the visuals in
the process. TAKU: There’s one that I got a
bronze last time on, so let’s see if I can beat this
and make it into a gold or silver. RYAN: You’re setting yourself up with high expectations for
yourself. TAKU: I spend a lot of time on
this mode. Historically, I worked on this
game for a long time and these still get me really
pumped up. RYAN: Well, because this is a
very video gamey part of Gran Turismo, being able to complete
challenges, clear missions, earn medals. TAKU: So within the next half
mile, I have to pass all these three
cars without going out of the
track. RYAN: Okay. TAKU: Or without hitting them. RYAN: So far they’re making it
easy for you. TAKU: Yeah. But watch out for this turn
right there. I slide around. RYAN: Easy, easy.
How long do you have to do this? TAKU: I will have to do this —
there’s another turn coming up, and once that turn ends, the
drill ends. So I have to really pass this
guy within the next — RYAN: It’s going to be tight. TAKU: Let me draft him so I can
go behind him, so I can sneakily — and I passed him, see. RYAN: Beautiful. TAKU: I get a gold. RYAN: There it is.
And now we dance. TAKU: Now I can sleep. RYAN: I want to quickly point
out that Gran Turismo Sport is 4K, 60 frames a second, and
that’s why it looks so good on your screen, on your device at
home. TAKU: Our guy, the creator,
Kazunori Yamauchi, had made presentations talking
about how — we don’t need to go over that again, but as you can
see it’s beautiful. RYAN: Absolutely. And that is something that the
Gran Turismo series has always prided itself in. And the passion of Polyphany
pushes the hardware forward absolutely every time. TAKU: It has always been the
killer app for the console, the PlayStation console. RYAN: Want to show us one more
mission? TAKU: Sure. RYAN: Yeah. Let’s do it. What else? What other skills can
you learn today, Taku? I don’t think you need them,
but. TAKU: Well, let me walk you
through the big picture here. So there’s the Driving Tests
that I talked about a little earlier. It’s almost like a
driving school. And then the Missions are the
ones that I just did where you pass three cars. The game gives like a mission to
go after. RYAN: Like a scenario that you
would find in a race. TAKU: And then Circuit
Experience is basically learning techniques to conquer each track
within the game. RYAN: Oh, okay. Awesome.
Let’s do it. TAKU: So it’s all by track.
As you can see. RYAN: That one is gigantic. TAKU: Yeah.
This one in the middle. It’s like “the” hardcore track
in Germany. But, yeah. Let’s try the Kyoto Driving
Park. So it will split the track up
into different sections and then eventually will make you do a
full lap attack. RYAN: Let’s see.
Show me. TAKU: Let me try to do the first
drill right here. RYAN: Let’s do it. TAKU: It’s time based. It’s telling me I have to do
0:27.800 to get a gold medal on this specific drill. RYAN: Okay. What car are you taking in this,
that an Audi in the corner? TAKU: It’s an Audi TT. RYAN: Okay.
Great. TAKU: So all these test
missions, they supply you with a car. RYAN: They’re like this is our
formal recommendation for how to clear this track. TAKU: And the important thing is
if you’re logged on, you can always compare your time
with friends. So even in these tests, I can
see how fast Carter went, so I can beat his time. RYAN: So even in the solo
experiences, there’s still a sense of
connectivity with your friends. Yeah.
Absolutely. CARTER: And this is the first
time we’ve shown the Kyoto track on Gran Turismo Sport. RYAN: It’s, no shocker,
gorgeous. TAKU: Kyoto is my favorite city
in the whole wide world. RYAN: Oh, personally you’re
favorite city, not just to race in. TAKU: Most beautiful town in
Japan. It’s almost like Boston. RYAN: I vacationed there one
once. TAKU: Isn’t it a nice city? RYAN: Oh, it’s beautiful there. CARTER: Oh, you failed. RYAN: But you failed.
TAKU: What? RYAN: I would like you to try
one more time. CARTER: You’re distracted by the
HDR graphics. RYAN: You were reminiscing about
— your mind was in Kyoto. TAKU: That’s right I was
relaxed. RYAN: So tell me a little bit
about as we’re driving here how to go and unlock cars because
that’s something that a lot of people want to hear about. TAKU: So in these license tests
in Campaign Mode and the drills, you actually do well, like I
just did, and if you get a gold medal or a
silver, you actually get to unlock
goodies. RYAN: Ooh.
I do love goodies. TAKU: And if you, for instance,
do all gold — RYAN: You failed again.
One more time. Can you try one more time? TAKU: Okay. I’ll try. RYAN: Okay. Okay.
On more time. TAKU: I’m starting to think this
might not be the final version; that’s why it’s giving me a hard
time. RYAN: Oh, I see.
I see. TAKU: The time is set wrong. RYAN: I see. CARTER: That’s a great excuse.
I’m just kidding. While Taku is focused, I can just talk about how to
unlock cars. When you’re doing Campaign Mode,
as you accomplish a set series of different trials and
challenges, you’ll unlock different cars. So the faster you do, the better
you do, you unlock better cars. The more you unlock, the more cars you get added to
your garage. RYAN: And there, right there, is
almost a built-in incentive on playing the single-player modes. CARTER: There you go. See.
TAKU: Got a bronze. CARTER: That was what it was. The talking and driving was a
little too much. TAKU: That was a gold
performance. RYAN: Taku, yes. I may see a bronze on screen,
but it was a gold at heart. CARTER: It was a gold effort.
RYAN: It really was. Gentlemen, thank you very much for joining us on the program
today. We have a lot more to show, of
course, of Gran Turismo Sport, but we’ll
save that for another day. Thank you so much. TAKU: Thank you.
CARTER: Thank you. RYAN: And everyone at home,
thank you. This was Gran Turismo Sport, and this was PlayStation
Underground. We will see you next time. TAKU: October 17th. [OUTRO MUSIC PLAYING]
