Shadow Hearts: Covenant

Fragland
28 May 2012
  • Excerpt: The first thing that crossed my mind when I pulled this game out of its envelope was: “Oops, he did it again to my heart and made me get lost in an RPG, oh baby!”. I just cured from Mega Man X Command Mission and now the next RPG is already waiting for, a not so eager, me.

29 March 2006
  • Excerpt: If you’ve never heard of Shadow Hearts , you’re not alone; released with little fanfare weeks before Final Fantasy X it was largely, pardon the pun, overshadowed. However the sequel, Shadow Hearts: Covenant , looks to make a name for itself through sheer quality, and does a damn good job of it.

Shadow Hearts: Covenant

Into Liquid Sky
9 March 2006
  • Excerpt: Shadow Hearts: Covenant takes the RPG mold and fashions it in a manner that proves to be a fresh angle on the genre. Instead of sci-fi or fantasy themes, the game is set in a dark environment, hinged on the early World War 1 timeline of Europe.
  • Pros: Great graphics, Change of story theme is nice, Story is pretty solid, Judgment Ring adds interactivity to battle
  • Cons: Lots and lots of Ring usage, A bit too easy and straightforward

  • Excerpt: There’s really only one thing I can say about this game: YOU ALL SUCK!! What’s wrong with you? Why aren’t you playing this beautiful game? Is it too hard? Have you been spoiled by Final Fantasy’s simplicity? Are you too busy playing over-hyped crap? Why aren’t you all playing this game?
  • Pros: + Beautiful Storyline, Unique Fighting System, Focus Put on Characters
  • Cons: - Fighting System Takes Time to Learn, Story not as Clear to Those Who Haven't Played the Prequel

  • Excerpt: Back in 2001, Midway and developer Sacnoth (a company comprised of ex-SquareSoft employees) released a little RPG called Shadow Hearts - and hardly anyone noticed, because we were all busy playing Final Fantasy X.

Shadow Hearts: Covenant

Playstation Illustrated
7 December 2005
  • Excerpt: While frequently a game that borders on the bizarre, Shadow Hearts: Covenant is a game that blends wonderfully classic, yet dark, atmospheres and a souped up traditional turn-based combat system into a truly first-rate RPG title.

14 July 2005
  • Excerpt: In 2001, Sacnoth, a company that was partially made up of ex-Squaresoft employees, released a RPG that went largely unnoticed by the majority of gamers. That RPG was the horror-themed, alternate timeline love-story called Shadow Hearts. I’ll be the first to say, I enjoyed the original Shadow Hearts.
  • Pros: + Innovative game play and engaging story
  • Cons: - Low replay and so-so voice acting

12 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Shadow Hearts was one of the PS2’s best RPGs when it was first released. Unfortunately, the game didn’t receive very much attention. Luckily that isn’t stopping Midway from bring the sequel, Shadow Hearts: Covenant , to American shores. Fans of the original game are in for a treat.
