Shenmue is amazing and all,despite with some gameplay problems. So how is SOA? Would you pick SOA over Shenmue?

Shenmue is good, but it doesnt really last that long. I traded it in today for Rogue Spear. Shenmue to me, is the greatest game ever, so I would reccomend it.

I own both and am playing both currently. SoA is very good but Shenmueis much, much better!

I let the dogs out..Now shut the hell up!

Skies of Arcadia.

But if you had to pick a single game then buy Cannon Spike.

So far i like SoA, but the aika(i think thats the name) is damn annoying and even flying the ship is a total chore, as is actually finding anything. So far though, the pros outweigh the cons.

...i just wise they woulda thought the ship thing through and made it easier to get around.

Ask yourself this:

Silver or FF7?

If you enjoyed silver, chances are the incredible storyline and voice-acting made you ignore the chinks in the gameplay. If that is so, you'll love Shenmue.

If you preferred FF7 over Silver, then a traditional RPG like SoA is your cup of tea.

I recommend both if you have the money.

Actually, I got JGR. I played through Shenmue twice, and didnt really want to play it anymore. I beat myself up whether or not to trade it in. JGR is so far a pleasant surprise.
