Yeah, the visuals really popped when I first turned it on. Definitely think the animations and menus are where they fell short, not the graphics. I guess the pop-in as well, but that’s supposedly an issue with the engine.The people who say Shenmue III is ugly are just plain wrong. The game is looking damn good, especially for its budget. Some people may dislike the game but you can't dislike them graphics.
I agree. I never understood why this model got so much hate. I always thought it was very faithful to Ryo's original design and could have been perfect with a little tweaking. I like the final version that we got too, but I feel like it's slightly less stylized and more on the realistic side compared to this older model.Yeah it looks great and I actually think that this version is the closest one to the original.
Completly agree with you; it really resembles the Mysterious scroll that Ryo finds in the Hazuki Dojo.Noticed the same on my current play, which I started from a fresh file and only second time I've played while taking my time and enjoying most of the features (a few stream runs were rushed new game plus). Still need to do most side stories and better arcade and gacha collecting on next play. Also reminded me of the mysterious scroll GuiZhang was unable to translate.
So much Shenmue packed into 3. So good!
