one of my most favorite RPG's EVER!!!

Im not so sure if I like part 3 but it was...nice.

I loved the Yuri & Alice pairing, they're so sweet! Death did not let them part! almost cried in the resurrection scene in SH:covenant

Shadow Hearts is a great game series. Shadow Hearts 1 and 2 are perfect. But SH3 was crap. To bright, dumb story, shitty hero and the enemys were to strong. To win against lady you need a lot of luck. I was on Lvl 99 and I had the ultimate Weapons & Armors. Still she wiped the whole party out with only one attack.

I love all them! especially the first one. It''s has a beautiful melody called Icaro throughout.

Yeah, an rpg, and a very good game. 1 and 2 were great, never played the 3rd one.

Woww. Shadow Hearts is indeed one of my favorite RPG series. I really loved the originality of the games and I'm mad for the judgement ring battle system. It put a little spice into the norm of the whole turn based thing. I have played and own all three. The second is my favorite hands down and I think that's because I enjoyed the characters and the story the most in that one over the other two. The first paved the way and the third was good, but didn't quite have the same spark as the second. I really did like Lady and Killer.

My favorite character would be Karin from Shadow Hearts: Convenant. She's just plain awesome.

You are missing Koudelka, prequel to Shadow Hearts on PS1.


I managed to play a little of Koudelka a couple of years ago. A friend found a copy used at a game store for like $20 and I tried it out at her house. It wasn't too horrible. The biggest problem I had with it was the battle system. I played an hour or so before it froze at a particular spot and I couldn't go any further. :/

PS2 I think, the battle system is a ring where you have to stop it (that's what I saw of the system in a demo I played).

Out of the three Shadow Hearts games I've only played Covenant and The New World (never the first one)
And I have to say SH: Covenant is one of my all time favorite RPGs

Seriously, if your a rpg fan you must play this game.

The New World wasn't a bad game either but it lacked something Covenant had imo.

Shadow Hearts is a great series, it's a mix of horror and comedy, interesting plot and characters,
innovative battle system (judgement ring), and deserves much more love then It has now.
I'd highly recommend to try shadow hearts 2, because it's probably the one that introduced most
people to this series, you don't need to play 1 to enjoy it, and in my opinion, it's the best one.

Shadow Hearts 1:
+ Great Story
+ It has Yuri (Main bad ass character)
+ Horror and plenty of gruesome monsters
+ Real Life Places (China and Europe)
+ Interesting Characters (Harmonixer, a spy, a vampire, etc)
+ Puzzles are not too confusing, not too easy.
+ Get lots of exp and cash in battles, so not a lot of grinding
+ Judgement Ring
- Short Game :(
- There's not much strategy involved in battles
- Battles get repetitive, sometimes boring

Shadow Hearts Covenant (2):
+ Decent Story
+ It still has Yuri, one of the main reasons you should get this game
+ A mix of serious, dark themes, to funny and wacky scenes.
+ Real Life Places (Europe and Japan)
+ Improved Judgement Ring (You can customize it to add
battle effects, or make it's width bigger, add extra attacks)
+ Battle Combo
+ Odd characters (From cool, to sexy, to wacky, to a wolf)
+ Long Game
+ Plentiful of side quests and extra features
+ Each character has unique ways to get new abilities
- Lots of puzzles, most being long and confusing
- Battles show way too frequently compared to the puzzle length.
- May be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of customization
- The final stage is extremely generic and boring

Shadow Hearts 3
I don't want to list it, so I'll just give a brief description.
Since this was made by a different company, many things most
people love about shadow hearts is NOT in this game. There
is no dark story, too many wierd characters, and there's no
bad ass character like Yuri. It's a fun game, but I wish It didn't
spoil the series by naming this "Shadow Hearts".

If you played both the other two, you may still want to pick this up.
There's plenty of customization and confusing quests in this one
as well. Don't expect anything epic like from the other two games.



Wow that took a long time, lol. I got crazy because I'm playing
shadow hearts right now, and it's really addicting =P
