Shadow Hearts: From the New World PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Whereas the sublime Shadow Hearts: Covenant was one half dark and one half crazy humour. From the New World is the third game in the series, and whilst it still has its dark moments, it brings the insane humour of the previous games right to the forefront.

Shadow Hearts: From the New World

  • Conclusion: The story has a decent Lovecraftian mystery at its center, but it strays so far from the series’ gothic horror roots that you almost have to classify it as a comedy. When you spend half your time rescuing the Roswell aliens, busting Al Capone out of Alcatraz, and helping a talking cat finance his...

  • Excerpt: I have to say, this isn't a terrible game, but neither is it a great one. What it definitely isn't is a Shadow Hearts game. After the new and unique Shadow Hearts, and the amazing Shadow Hearts: Covenant, I was expecting the third game to be even better.
  • Pros: + Nice graphics, Shadow Hearts battle system
  • Cons: - Storyline lacking, Characters unconvincing, Music annoying

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: From the New World is not an award-contender like Covenant, but thanks to that unique and massively entertaining Ring, the gameplay is top-notch. The story isn't all that memorable, despite a nice little twist and dash of real emotion at the end, but the characters are humorous and...

  • Excerpt: What do ninjas, talking cats, vampires, the mafia, shapeshifters, aliens, guitar players, monsters, and a sixteen year-old boy all have in common? A lot if we're talking about Shadow Hearts' latest sequel.
  • Pros: ups: enjoyable storyline/characters, humorous antics, sound
  • Cons: downs: somewhat frustrating battle system, confusing management

  • Conclusion: Shadow Hearts 3’s true length depends on how many character quests you decide to take part in. The average completion time is about 30 hours. Luckily, the usual “New game +” option is present, where you can start a new game with some of your items and stats intact from your previous game.

  • Excerpt: Shadow Hearts: From the New World , being the latest entry in the rather unique Shadow Hearts series, is a game that can be hard to describe. It’s like a fan fiction of reality. Set in the American continents during the 1920s, the party will meet people and places that should be familiar to most...

  • Conclusion: Without a doubt, one of the best RPGs to hit the PS2. It's quirky, hilarious, loaded with enjoyable side quests and manages to tug the heartstrings just enough to round out the whole experience.
