I know the PS2 is long gone and the Shadow Hearts series is dead (I read in Game Informer that the studio now makes pachinko games), but man, I loved those games. I played all three of them. I think the idea of an fantasy/horror RPG set in the early 20th century made for a refreshing change of pace, not to mention the great storylines and appealing characters. Plus the game makers had fun putting in real historical figures and fictional characters into the games. I think my favorite of the three was the second one, Shadow Hearts Covenant, but all three were great games. Too bad we'll probably never see another Shadow Hearts game. Imagine a WWII set game that has the Nazis summoning Norse gods while Churchill summons King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table? Or a Cold War set game that involves UFO's and the US and the USSR trying to find the Lost City of Atlantis? The possibilities are endless.

A great series, especially the PS1 prequel (Koudelka).

Fantastic series. I played Koudelka too, but never got around to finishing it..... Same for SH3 (the weakest of the 3, imho.) The setting was fascinating- I wish more RPG's would be set closer to present time and reality.
And yes, I cried like a little girl at the 'real' ending for SH1.

Shadow Hearts and SH: Covenant were good fun. I loved the setting and that battle system was always fun.

Sony really needs to bring these games to the PSN classics section. Though playing it on a ps3/4/vita would stop me from using emulator savestates, the judgement ring is the bane of my existence. Yuri fo' life!

I love the game but it would be nice if they did remake them or release them on the PS3/4 consoles, which makes it easier for me.
