Final Breakdown


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.


 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.


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.


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