Cool Judas

  • Excerpt: Shadow Hearts; Covenant, the third game in the burgeoning Koudelka series, makes significant improvements over its predecessor in nearly every conceivable area. However, and while the game is very good and a lot of fun to play, certain parts of the game make it hard to reconcile with the other two titles in the series.

The Judgment Ring Goes for Another Spin

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: "Europe. 1915. The Great War has spread across the continent like wildfire. A young German officer leads troops into the village of Domremy in France under orders to secure it for the empire and stamp out resistance." Toss in a baritone narrator and some grainy footage, and this is how it would play out on the History Channel.

Shadow Hearts: Covenant

  • Excerpt: Forget what you learned in history class: Princess Anastasia was a feisty princess that traveled the world defeating monsters, and Rasputin sold his soul to a demon in exchange for magical powers and a sweet fortress. Also, the catastrophic casualties of World War I can be blamed on a secret society that unleashed “malice” upon the world from a building at the Vatican.

  • Excerpt: With no major SquareEnix releases this holiday season for PS2, RPG gamers are free to open their arms and embrace the rest of the genre. Midway's Shadow Hearts: Covenant fills the void between Final Fantasies quite nicely and might make you forget all about spikey haired heroes or heroines in short shorts. Read all about it here.

Test : Shadow Hearts : Covenant

GameHope
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Jeu polémique voilà quelques années, Shadow Hearts se voit désormais doté d’un grand frère, revu et réhaussé, qui devrait rallier un public plus large sans pour autant dénaturer le background dark et engagé de la série.
  • Pros: Monde dark, Humour omniprésent, Système de combat original, Scénario et personnalités des persos fouillés, Bonne durée de vie (30 à 40h)
  • Cons: Le Roue du Destin, un peu gavante à la longue, Durée de vie un peu augmentée par des donjons répétitifs

  • Excerpt: Celles et ceux qui se sont essayés au premier Shadow Hearts savent à quel point le RPG de Aruze est un OVNI dans le paysage vidéoludique. Se reposant sur une ambiance proche d'un survival horror tout en profitant d'un système de combat absolument génial, car basé sur la stratégie et les réflexes, ce titre a fortement marqué les esprits..

  • Excerpt: Man kunne sige mange ting om det første Shadow Hearts, men man kunne ikke beskylde det for at være almindeligt eller et mainstream rollespil. Spillet foregik omkring starten af Første Verdenskrig, men det stoppede ikke udviklerne fra at skabe en mystisk verden, fyldt med dæmoner, spøgelser og det der var værre. Nu er efterfølgeren så kommet og den følger i det første spils fodspor.

  • Conclusion: Genre trop peu représenté chez nous, l’Europe accueille en ce mois de mars un excellent RPG. Malgré une réalisation graphique vieillotte, difficile de ne pas succomber aux charmes de Shadow Hearts 2. L’histoire est passionnante, le scénario très long, les personnages charismatiques et surtout le système de combats dynamique et riche en possibilités. Indispensable tout simplement ! Visiter le site officiel du jeu !
