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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Overall, it is the interplay between the story and the battle sequences that win the day. This helps to really lift the less interesting dungeon crawling sections. Although there was the danger of these two strong aspects of the game competing too heavily for screen time and canceling each other...
