A mixed bag

David L. Gilbert, Amazon
16 September 2004
  • Summary: As the title says, my opinions of this game are a mixed bag. I liked this game, but I wanted to love it. The developers of this game clearly invested a lot of time, energy and emotion into the graphics and the story - but it didn't quite satisfy me.

Decent, for what it is

Exosus, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a fairly good game. It is not a great game, nor a terrible game, but simply a decent game. It fails where so many do, in the gameplay. The story is interesting enough, the characters fairly deep, but the combat is, as is all turn-based combat, a crime against gaming.

a rare rpg must have

M. Gray, Amazon
10 August 2004
  • Summary: The first SH game I played was number 3(which was awsome by the way) Then I read about SH 1 and how it was one of the top 10 rare rp games to own, so of course, I had to have it. However, I was rather dissappointed when I put the game in and started to play.

A reasonable, if slightly short, second-tier RPG, worth looking up by fans of the genre

  • Excerpt: Sacnoth’s sequel to the rather innovative Koudelka has some nice features, but overall is not as good as its predecessor. Set in the 1800’s, the story is international and begins in China before moving to Japan. Unfortunately the character’s clothing is anachronistic.

  • Excerpt: After so many RPG's I thought that Shadow Hearts would be like Final Fantasy. It was in some ways but it was better in others. This game is full of monstors, white magic, yin and yang, fusions and that damn voice you keep hearing. In the beginning...
  • Pros: Pretty much the whole game
  • Cons: the judgement ring

Alright, Don't know why it needed a "Mature" rating

D. Allison, Amazon
17 September 2004
  • Summary: An RPG like Final Fantasy (wander, enter battles, manage points & items) except with much lower production values. The storyline and dialogue are uninspired. Also, I was hoping for some adult content b/c of the "Mature" rating but it never crossed, say, the Benny Hill Threshold.

A Good Distraction

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 September 2004
  • Summary: Most PS2 owners that enjoy RPG Games will know all about the Final Fantasy series. This is ANOTHER IN THE LONG LIST OF rpgs but its not your normal churn out. There is a few alterations to the standard gameplay with the addition of the judgement ring.
