Summary: This game had me enthralled from the very beginning. I had been a fan of the series since I stumbled on the first title by accident, and this game did not disappoint me at all. The story line flowed perfectly from the first game to 'Covenant', allowing for a fluid transfer between the two.
Pros: Engaging story, Epic boss fights, Addictive gameplay, Innovative concepts, Just plain fun
Summary: Finally, an original, innovative RPG. Shadow Hearts Covenant draws you in quickly, and carries you through a vast world that gets more complex and intriguing. SHC has plenty of side quests but they aren't mandatory to beat the game like so many RPGs, you don't have to 'level up' either which for me,...
Summary: Yep, you read my title correctly. Great game. Great story. In a time where game designers are making massive games with no story or characters that you care about at all, this is an exception. I enjoyed this almost as much as I enjoyed FFVII, and in some ways even more so.
Excerpt: I know that PS2 is kinda old news nowadays, but there are always those few that we love to play again, this is one of those games. Shadow Hearts: Covenant is the second game of a series, the first is Shadow Hearts, obviously. To play this game, it's a good idea to play the first.
The most stunning yet most overlooked RPG of all time

Summary: The only game apart from FFX that I just cant stop playing. Absorbing plot, great game play, mini games that require some effort, multiple endings depending on how you complete certain parts of the game - yep its a great game!
Summary: Nowadays, most of games simply focus on graphics rather than gameplay and storyline which in my opinion is the most important aspect for a good game. Shadow Hearts: Convenant, in my opinion, has everything. Fantasic storyline where the story is evolved under the historical background of WW1.
Immersive, compelling and laugh out loud adventure that is not one to be missed

Excerpt: Where do I begin? Many people who enjoy turn-based strategy games on the Playstation 2 rely on one series of games primarily - Final Fantasy. Why is this you may ask? Not only have they been very consistent with the high quality and production of their games since the Snes, but until now, there have...
Summary: Nowadays some RPGs tend to focus on graphics as oppose to gameplay and storyline. Looking at past RPGs that were successful we see that these are two vital components. Gladly SH Covenant doesn't fall down in either department.
