Shenmue III released in November 2019 on the PlayStation 4 and PC. Upon launch, the long-awaited sequel received mixed reception from critics and fans alike. Our review awarded it a 6.5 out of 10, praising the classic Shenmue aesthetic, while noting that clunky gameplay, outdated graphics, and awkwardly written dialogue significantly weakened the experience.
