  1. The voice acting in the game is downright awful - especially painful after hearing the excellent voice acting in "Tales of Symphonia."
  2. 70
    A game whose lack of originality is matched only by its abundance of... well, pretty much everything else.
  3. 60
    It's a LONG role-playing game, but that's not necessarily a good quality when it becomes more of a chore than a hobby.

    Simply the best RPG I've played. The FMVs and the story is near unmatched by most of today's new animes on all consoles. The Simply the best RPG I've played.

    One of my favorite RPGs of all time. Story is great. Wide range of characters. I don't believe I've ever enjoyed a story so much. TheyOne of my favorite RPGs of all time. Story is great. Wide range of characters. I don't believe I've ever enjoyed a story so much. They added quite a bit of comedy with some characters. Battle system is more than just clicking through menus. Makes the battle system engaging and entertaining. There are options to increase or decrease some functions of the battle system for those who want more or less of a challenge. Monster design in the Shadow Hearts games are amazing. Creepy monsters all with lore. Plenty of side quests, and difficult battles for completionists. Full Review »
