Although there was the danger of these two strong aspects of the game competing too heavily for screen time and canceling each other...
Excerpt: Shadow Hearts: From the New World takes place in the United States during the time of the Great Depression. This is based during a realistic time period with a fictional story incorporated. Johnny Garland is the protagonist who is a private investigator who finally receives a real case.
