This isn't a surprise tbh because owning the original 2 games I knew that if the third game was anything like them it wouldn't be received as well today because the industry has moved on and improved on all aspects it introduced the only reason to really get the game would be to continue the story. Gameplay wise after open world games began to arrive with the likes of GTA3 and so it became hard to go back and play the original Shenmue games because the likes of the former rectified a number of issues Shenmue had with the main one being adding sandbox mechanics so you have things to actually do in the game world.
