The purpose of this thread is to discuss the Shadow Heart games. You can talk about your favorite characters, favorite moments, discrepancies in the plot or any other general questions about this game you might have. Overall, for those who are familiar with this game and have played it, what did you think?

The Shadow Heart series is one of my favorite RPG games. Right now I'm still trying to finish the 3rd game but so far it doesn't seem to be as good as Shadow Hearts 2: Covenant--although that doesn't mean that this game isn't interesting in itself. Actually, I was a bit disappointed that the 3rd game of the series wasn't going to have Yuri as the main character anymore but the 3rd game did feel fresh.

The battle system--Judgement Ring--hasn't changed and a few familiar faces from SH2 do make guest appearances. Even the character designs for Lady and Killer seem to allude to Alice and Yuri which I thought was a nice touch. One of the interesting elements of SH3 is probably the characters. It is probably one of the oddest cast of characters an RPG game has brought together (eg. What's the deal with Frank's ninja outfit? O.O)

For those who are looking to try out a new RPG game for the PS2, I highly recommend giving this series a look.

Hmm i think i played one of these a while back *checks disorganized game collection of horror*. Ah i found Covenant

Let's see my favourite moment.... I think it was when i was deep inside a cave, and i saw the two merchants. Their excuse for being there is one of the funniest things i have ever seen in a videogame.

The worst part of the game was the end game area. I mean it was just so generic, and

My favourite character was joachim. I mean a huge crazy wrestler that wields huge ass
random weapons. How could it get any better than that?

Let's see what else? I really liked the boss fights. They were challenging, but not too challenging. Even though i did need to retry a couple of them more than i wanted to. Damn i revealed my poor gaming skills .

One last thing. I thought that managing the skill/ring upgrade was a little too cumbersome.

I've played all three games and I'd have to say that they are one of my favorite games ever, although I prefer the first two over the third one since I liked the characters and plot better.

The battle system was also one of the most unique and active ones that I've ever played, along with Baten Kaitos and Magna Carta. It just kept me awake and on edge so I never felt drowsy while playing.

Great games, I'd also recommend the Shadow Hearts series to any gamers looking for a new RPG since they are really fun and have great plots.

The third one, I hired it out overnight. I got up to the university at the start and decided that i'd gotten sick of it. >_>

One of the things which disappointed me about SH3 was the lack of fusions. Shania only has a total of four throughout the entire game which is quite a reduction from all the fusions Yuri has.

My favorite fusion in SH2 aside from Amon and Dark Seraphim was Fides. This form was the fire element which looked like a knight in red armor. My favorite strategy when it came to boss was battles was very simple: I just casted Rage to increase strength and then another party member would use an "Edge" spell (Holy Edge, Dark Edge, Heat Edge, etc.) depending on the element the boss was weak against. After that, I made him the last attacker of a very long combo and that would usually be enough to finish most bosses within one or two turns.

Btw, does anyone know if buff spells (Rage, Surge, etc.) can be stack?

I've played and completed one and two but unsure about three, but only because yuri and Co aren't in it and that just seems weird to me as when I think Shadow Hearts I think of that bad ass yuri.

One was an amazing game and i'd recomend it to others, the judgement ring system can take a bit of getting used to but its part of what makes such a good game, the soul collection also makes for an intresting consept, making you go out of your way to fight enemys of a certain eleament so you can level up that deamon.

Two was also an great game, expanding on the storyline of one but with added twists and power ups which can keep you amused/annoyed for a long time.

The games were pretty good..but I can name a few better RPGs than Shadow Hearts.

Personally, I think the best thing in Shadow Hearts is the soundtrack. Anybody here agree with me?

i think Shadow Hearts could of been a really cool game if people
had heard about it and they added cooler characters which everyone
loves. But the games were awesome. The first one was the best.
Bloody, fun, and cool.
