Shadow Hearts: From the New World PS2 Review
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.
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: Technically sound but dramatically inert, Shadow Hearts: From the New World is another disappointing entry in a series that started off phenomenally and has proceeded to travel on a steadily downward slope ever since.
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
Excerpt: My god, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to get around to reviewing this game. I just ended up reviewing other games like Pokemon: Trozei, Scratches, Crime Stories and DDO . I just kept putting it off because I decided it would be better to review obscure games over this one.
Conclusion: 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 likeable..
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.
Excerpt: Genre: RPG Publisher: XSeed Games Developer: Nautilus Release Date: March 7, 2006 Shadow Hearts: From the New World does a lot of things well, but perhaps one of the most interesting things it does is show you the value of originality.
