Shenmue 3 is available globally now for PC and PlayStation 4. The title was released back in November of last year. Nathan Birch reviewed the long-awaited Shenmue sequel and gave it, despite its ungraceful combat and lacking quick time events, an 8.

Is Shenmue III dated? Absolutely, but the game proves that, like most genres, open-world adventures still have a thing or two to learn from the past. Shenmue III isn’t always as player-friendly as it could be, but its lively, uniquely-handcrafted world is truly absorbing. Here’s hoping this isn’t the end of Ryo and Yu Suzuki’s epic journey.
