You do a good job of drawing attention to the game's strengths and weighing them against its weaknesses. It felt maybe a little long, but that could be because I'm hungry and consequently impatient.

Corrections:

'comaraderie' --> 'camaraderie'
'intellgient' --> 'intelligent'
'on which you and your opponents to move' --> add or remove a word

Some day, I'll have to buy this game. When I last checked on Amazon, it was less than I'd have expected, considering how much some PS1 games are. That "some day" might be a ways off, though. So many games on my backlog now that it isn't even funny.

How evil of me to make those corrections without thank Sam... Thanks, good catches! I wrote the rough draft on program that didn't have spellcheck.

Thanks, Rob. This game is worth getting, just don't expect a visual feast. I got very lucky picking it up for a mere $10 right after it had come out. The sales were so poor that it soared into the bargain bin. Opportunistic individuals nabbed several copies of it at a time and sold it on eBay for a decent markup. I recall wanting to do this myself only to find that it had sold out where I had purchased it at the base exchange. Apparently some airmen figured this out as well..

I remember seeing Koudelka knocking around for cheap in my nearest games shop for a good couple of years, but I never got round to picking it up.

I got this back in 2002 or 2003 when I saw it in a bargain bin. I only knew what it was because of bloomer's review. Got to disc 3 I believe, but I never finished it.

It's a tough game to finish, especially at disc three when you command only Koudelka for a short while. You even have to fight a boss using only her.

Minor error Joe: perhaps even learn to looks past - near the end.

Good review, though I totally disagree about the music and the VA. I loved both! I liked the way you started with a negative response (which many people have from the opening of the game) and slowly worked your way through why your decision to keep playing was the right one.

Did you beat the Gargoyle?


Don't panic!

Thanks! I did beat Gargoyle, and without the special sword that does a ton of damage to him(because I didn't know it existed). Let me tell you, it was a helluva battle! I almost gave up so many times.

I was never able to get into any of the Shadow Hearts/Koudelka games. After your review, I feel the usual disappointment that I wasn't able to, but your review also reveals to me why it was legitimate not to enjoy myself.
