Forget what you learned in history class: Princess Anastasia was a feisty princess that traveled the world defeating monsters, and Rasputin sold his soul to a demon in exchange for magical powers and a sweet fortress. Also, the catastrophic...

Shadow Hearts: Covenant - ps2


The opening movie alone ranks in the top five all-time greatest cutscenes in gaming history, but the exquisite game design, adventure-style exploration, rich RPG system, and the enhanced Judgment Ring combat system puts this title in a league all its own

Shadow Hearts: Covenant


Click a phrase to jump to the first occurrence, or return to the search results.

With not only graphical detail but style to match, the look of this game can stand next to any of SquareEnix’s modern classics ; Deep, involving story that grows well out of the first title, without requiring knowledge of it ; Engrossing battle system...

The first couple hours can be a bit disorienting since the story begins “already in progress ; As with first installment, requiring a successful “action tap” to use healing herbs might be taking the system a bit too far

Shadow Hearts: Covenant looks great and, with its innovative battle system, has the potential to draw the interest of action RPG fans to this turn-based masterpiece. One of the best non-SquareEnix RPGs available on PS2, and quite a bit better, even,...

Shadow Hearts Covenant


Better than the first...well, better than most

The music helps set the mood for Covenant, but it's the hours of voice acting that's the real improvement in this edition. They do a fantastic job of bringing the cut scenes to life, and it doesn't hurt that they're voicing some really well written...

Shadow Hearts Covenant on Playstation 2


In a world filled with second class Final Fantasy clones and sterile, vacuous action RPGs, it is a rare and wondrous treat to find a game that combines rich storyline, impressive art direction, macabre humor, and fluid game play. This fall we are...

offers up a solid 30-40 hours of game play that can be extended even further by rabid leveling and side quest completion. It's not a hundred plus hour monstrosity, but he overall quality of those 30+ hours makes this title far more satisfying in the...

Shadow Hearts: Covenant


Midway hopes the second time's a charm for its underappreciated RPG franchise.

Battle system even cooler than before; epic story full of screwed-up characters

Pace can be slow at times; humorless gamers may be turned off by a lot of the absurdity

Shadow Hearts: Covenant Preview


One of the lesser known RPG titles releasing soon, this is one game RPG fans should be keeping an eye on.

Shadow Hearts: Covenant may not have the history of other RPGs such as Square Enix' dominant Dragon Warrior and Final Fantasy series, but it does look to be a fun new entry in an ongoing series that could catch some glory yet. Look for Shadow Hearts:...

Shadow Hearts: Covenant


Shadow Hearts: Covenant takes the RPG mold and fashions it in a manner that proves to be a fresh angle on the genre. Instead of sci-fi or fantasy themes, the game is set in a dark environment, hinged on the early World War 1 timeline of Europe. Set a...

Great graphics; Change of story theme is nice; Story is pretty solid; Judgment Ring adds interactivity to battle

Lots and lots of Ring usage; A bit too easy and straightforward

In a genre that's steadily being filled with topnotch titles, it's hard for games like Shadow Hearts: Covenant to stand out on their own. Luckily, the adventure and the Judgment Ring aspect of combat lend themselves to a quality title that's sure to be...
