  1. Despite being set in another dimension, Sudeki feels believable and somehow real.
  2. 90
    I found it difficult to play it for more than an hour or so until I was four hours into it, due to just the awkward feel to the controls and game. Once you get over the hump, though, then you start being able to spend hours playing without realizing it.
  3. Sudeki tries a new path and gives us real time combat instead of the normal turn-based style which works. Sudeki plays like an eastern role-playing game, with western combat ideas.
  4. 90
    A great game that isn't given the justice it deserves. There was a lot of hype surrounding this game when it was first announced and as far as I am concerned it has delivered.
  5. Despite having a few rough edges, Sudeki is a very good game that will keep you playing (over and over). There's so much to see and the story plays out like a good movie that keeps you entranced to the final credits roll.
  6. Sudeki's graphics are really impressive, both in terms of technical and artistic achievement. The world of Sudeki is one continuous experience, slicing a swath from vast location to location is seamless.
  7. Action fans might balk at what sounds like a standard role-playing game opening, but Sudeki soon bursts into the most intense, bone-crunching combat you'll find on any platform.
  8. 90
    A solid mix of story, action, and adventure, Sudeki does just about everything one would expect. The main quest could have been longer -- it clocks in a bit shy of 20 hours -- but the length is more than made up for by the complete immersion factor of the world.
  9. The monsters are determined to destroy the characters' home world, so players will need to perfect various combos and team attacks in order to survive.

It combines multiple genre's together to create a unique RPG that's worth your time. It's got some issues to keep it from reaching true greatness. The story is weak and has one of the worst endings of all time, probably the worst ending for an RPG, but the main characters are really likable so that's something. I also found the melee combat lacking thanks to a lack of any lock on system and the fact that enemies constantly stop your combo in the middle when they swarm you. The game takes some getting used to thanks to the awkward camera. It's got flaws for sure, and while the story doesn't pull you in the gameplay will. I found myself getting lost in this games unique world for hours at a time. So if you are looking for a great RPG for you original Xbox you should look this up. Full Review »

More FPS-RPGs please! The melee combat is pretty meh, and the art style is a bit questionable. Overall though, very fun! Full Review »

    I think this is a pretty solid game. I'd read some reviews and was expecting the worst, but I enjoyed the game thouroughly. The graphics I think this is a pretty solid game. I'd read some reviews and was expecting the worst, but I enjoyed the game thouroughly. The graphics are simply beatiful, and the gameplay's great. The ending was kind of a letdown, though.
