I liked it. It wasn't worth the 19-year wait though. I bought the DLC when it was half off but have yet to play it. 100% worth it for $10 with a steel case. I'm jealous for those that haven't bought the game yet. Absolute steel of a deal.

This is why you can be wary of Kickstarting games that will be funded. Mighty no 9, this, and Wonderful 101 crashed in price on release. Not saying the games are bad, but these games were going to get funded anyway after a point. Kickstarter hype isn't as hot recently, but oh it can be sometimes. Nonetheless I will try my copy after going through the first 2, which I got cheap as well. It pays to wait sometimes.

If anyone liked the first two 'Shenmue' games, they'll like the third entry. Just don't expect it to resolve much.

 

I'll reiterate this is worth it for the steelbook alone, but I'm guessing once the complete version leaves LRG it'll get a retail release, and Best Buy  probably wants to get rid of the vanilla release first.

Probably familiar news to anyone who orders Steelbooks, but if you're only in it for the Steelbook, be prepared for disappointment on the condition it comes in.  I got the Shenmue steel a couple of times from the BB website and they all came with dents.  The ones I found in stores weren't any better so I just kept the best one I got.  Maybe the ones from the warehouse and in stores are all returns for damage since this has been out for a while, but I've never had such bad luck with any other SBs.

It’s not just Kickstarter. Nowadays all single player only games crash hard after release. Companies can do low budget and profit off $10 indies, or they can do AAA titles but rely on whales buying DLCs.

I see what you did there!
