This is crazy, I really need to play this game again. I've played through Shenmue II but I've never known that I could race ducks in it. Truly an innovation in gaming and can't believe hasn't catched on. It's really the little details that make this game, for example, apparently if you race the ducks on a rainy day you have to race a super fast penguin. Hoollyy shit. Games that try to copy it - like Mass Effect 2 - tend to miss the smaller details that make Shenmue amazing.

Really makes me want to play Shenmue II again; what else have I missed out on???

edit; props to omikaru for showing me this

I approve of this, if it's actually true (it's the first I've heard of it). It really is a fantastic game. But I have to ask... Mass Effect 2 tries to copy Shenmue 2?

I used to spend so much time doing this. :lol

I've recently replayed the first game, but I need to go back to the second. It's superior IMO.

Why are baby ducks racing against grown ducks? Seems kind of unfair.

Does Shenmue 2 play in the 360? I only ask because it seems like every time I want to play an OG XBOX game (which is not often at all), it is not supported in the 360

Yep. I believe shadows don't work properly, but for all intents and purposes it runs well enough.

This is one of the things why shenmue is one of the best games of all time. most people saying it isnt, just did not like the controls or amount of dialogue in this game. but the amount of sidemissions and stuff you could explore if you just looked is astounding.
i think there is NO other game with as much attention to detail. there were so many optional cutscenes that game information about characters and the world you played in. wonderful. shenmue is astounding.

Those you who plan to try this side event please be aware your duck isn't going to be fast from the get-go. Your duck starts off with very low stamina, which means you'll lose the first dozen or so races. Gradually you'll get better acceleration and stamina until you're able to win. Lastly it's $50 a race so be sure you save up at least a grand or two before you start racing.

Yeah, the game was full of content if you took the time to look around and talk to everyone, as such I am a bit surprised so many people have not seen the duck race before. Both games are such an amazing experience.

I'll have to replay the game soon, it's been too long.

Aww, man Shenmue Dojo is back up? It brought a tear to my eye when it closed down, glad to see its return. All the crazy editing by LanDC (I think) is what drove me to mod my Xbox and replace the english voice files with japanese ones from my Dreamcast version.
