Decent Shadow Hearts

M. Devlin, Amazon
6 October 2009
  • Summary: As a big fan of the Shadow Hearts series I was glad to know the 3rd title in its series had been released for a considerable while now. I heard from import reviewers its more of a spin-off than a "true" sequel. After playing it for a while I tend to disagree.

  • Summary: i found this game very strange at first, i am not usually into turn based fighting games but as it said judgement based fighting which sounded different i thought i would give it a go, once you get used to this type of fighting which is actually quite tricky it is a very good game, graphics are good...

  • Excerpt: Age Rating: 12+ 1 Player Shadow Hearts: From the new world is the third game in the Shadow Hearts series although you don't have to play the first two to understand the storyline. Each of the SH games are set on Earth but with a twist, magic exists and so do monsters.

What makes Shadow Hearts different

26 July 2008
  • Excerpt: I've been following all Shadow Hearts series including the prequel which is "Koudelka" for the PSone console. Koudelka was a pure Gothic horror RPG with a unique but somewhat a little depressing battle system.
  • Pros: Fun, funny, colorful evironment
  • Cons: Judgement Ring system may cause some players "irritated"

A step backwards

Ms. S. L. H, Amazon
17 February 2008
  • Summary: Despite being a massive fan of Shadow Hearts 1 and 2, 3 turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. Gone are the well-received cast from the previous games, something entirely expected but nonetheless disheartening as their replacements are not even on the same level.

It's not happening this time around

A. Griffiths "Adrian", Amazon
21 August 2007
  • Summary: I've been a huge fan of the Shadow Hearts series, but "From the New World" is the weakest so far. I might be a little biased as I played it immediately after finishing Final Fantasy 12 and it just can't compare to that, but even so I remember having a far better time playing the first game and the...

  • Excerpt: Shadow Hearts: From the New World is the third in the Shadow Hearts series to grace the Playstation 2 and while it is still a very fun, colourful and engaging game, some may say that it doesn't evoke the same emotional pull that the previous Shadow Hearts: Covenant accomplished.
  • Pros: Story driven, Colourful characters, very good battle system .
  • Cons: Can be quite tricky in places .

  • Excerpt: Shadow Hearts: From the New World (PS2) Firsty i want to say this game is so much more funnier than final fantasy 12, thats for sure...Considering we live in a world where final fantasy 12 exists, the question can be posed, why would you ever need another PS2 RPG?
  • Pros: Great and awesome gameplay .  .  .
  • Cons: nothing to say really .  .  .

  • Summary: Shadow hearts är ett relativt okänt rpg spel för de flesta gamers.Det släpptes år 2001 så det är ett gammalt spel för att vara ps2. Trots det tycker jag ändå grafiken håller måttet men omgivningen är tyvärr väldigt dyster.Spelet skiljer sig från de flesta andra rpg spel jag testat.En sak är ett...
