Shadow Hearts: Covenant review

Reviewed December 29, 2006

djskittles says: "Forget what you learned in history class: Princess Anastasia was a feisty princess that traveled the world defeating monsters, and Rasputin sold his soul to a demon in exchange for magical powers and a sweet fortress. Also, the catastrophic casualties of World War I can be blamed on a secret society that unleashed “malice” upon the world from a building at the Vatican. "

peterl90 says: "The Shadow Hearts series has been gaining ground in the world of video games lately, mainly with the latest addition of Shadow Hearts: From the New World. I remember I had never even heard of Shadow Hearts a few years ago, until a friend of mine pointed me in the direction of it.

From amazing graphics to a varied and rich soundtrack, I was completely blown away by eve..."

radicaldreamer says: "Much like its predecessor, Shadow Hearts: Covenant thrives on difference. It is not an absolute departure, but more than most it takes several of the most taken-for-granted role-playing game conventions and turns them on their heads. These differences, while not always positive, make Shadow Hearts: Covenant a unique and refreshing entry into a genre characterized by saturation and conventionality. "

True says: "Whoever said turn-based combat games are boring… well, was probably right for the most part. Shadow Hearts: Covenant, however, pummels your head and your reflexes in a manner I haven’t seen since Legend Of Dragoon. While Covenant’s judgment ring doesn’t have the same insane sense of timing as the fore-mentioned game it is still enough to make you actually sit up, focus and curse at yourself when you miss. The ring consists of yellow hit bars, small red strike bars, and a spinning clock hand that..."
