Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

The judgement ring's always been a solid and fun system, keeping players engaged even in turn-based combat, and the Stock system is a definite improvement.

Graphics:

 The engine gets just about every last bit out of the PS2's aging hardware,

Sound and Music:

The musical score is as solid as the last title in the series, as is the voice acting. Congratulations go to XSeed's region guys for this one.

Difficulty:

As RPG's go, it's not amazingly difficult, but it's designed to be enjoyed for the characters and storyline.

Controls and Interface:

If you want a good example of how to design a RPG interface, look no further. Despite all the available options, it's easy to use and hard to get lost.

Overall:

While perhaps not truly better than Shadow Hearts: Covenant it stands well on its own as an RPG. Pick it up.
