What makes Shadow Hearts different

  • 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. Shadow Hearts series storyline may well be connected to Koudelka (aside from this one) but developer indeed made many changes that improves the later series a great deal. Particularly the "Judgement Ring" system which basically covers almost ...
  • Pros: Fun, funny, colorful evironment
  • Cons: Judgement Ring system may cause some players "irritated"

  • 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. Personally I tend to agree. However, make no mistake that FTNW is still a great game in its own right and will keep most entertained and addicted. Firstly, the story and ...
  • Pros: Story driven, Colourful characters, very good battle system .
  • Cons: Can be quite tricky in places .

  • Summary: Köpte den amerikanska versionen av detta spel när det kom ut. Del tre i den populära serien Shadow Hearts gör dock allt annat än göra sina fans nöjda. Historien är medioker, mindre pussel mot föregångarna. Kan läggas till att historien och spelet är oerhört kort. 20 timmar, kanske mindre. Om du som jag, älskade Shadow Hearts Covenant, så kommer du med stor sannolikhet att finna detta spel som en besvikelse.

Shadow Hearts : From the New World

  • Summary: Sh3, est un jeu au gameplay hyper complet,optimisation de la roue, gestion des personnages à l'unité, et gameplay bien distinct, grand nombre de quêtes annexes. Bref rien à redire, il y a de quoi faire. Techniquement, le soft est loin d'être le plus beau jeu de la playstation2, mais il reste très agréable. Original et toujours aussi béton au niveau de l'ambiance, malheureusement il pèche par son trop plein de loufoquerie.
