    Well, I just completed it in under 15 hours. The ending was terrible. It doesn't even show what happened to the characters afterwards, or what happened to the whole world. The story was disappointing as well. The "puzzles" could be solved by a lobotomized chimp. Or maybe a well-trained dolphin. I'm very dissapointed overal, and hope that Sudeki 2 (which is apparently being made) Well, I just completed it in under 15 hours. The ending was terrible.

Not bad for your first RPG Climax, but this is certainly no Final Fantasy killer. Anyone claiming it does should be blade sparked by Tal. ;) Collapse

    By now you probably realize that Sudeki is a disappointment. But most reviews fail to mention the real reasons. My biggest problem was the lack of freedom in Sudeki. Battles only take place in arena-like areas from which you cannot escape until all the enemies are defeated. While walking from town to town, you are confined to narrow paths (with various arena battles in between). In By now you probably realize that Sudeki is a disappointment.

Battles only take place in arena-like areas from which you cannot escape until all the enemies are defeated. While walking from town to town, you are confined to narrow paths (with various arena battles in between). In addition, there really is no customization of your characters other than their own individual statistics. You can't buy armor, and there is only one weapon you can buy per character (I didn't even purchase my first weapon until I was 16 hours into the game!). Basically, stores are useless in general. Everything you can buy in a store can be found on defeated enemies or in chests (and in large quantities!). You could honestly play the entire game without purchasing anything from the stores. Blacksmiths are more useful, but they all sell the same upgrades so there is no need to travel to a different city to get that awesome upgrade that you finally can afford. The list of design flaws for Sudeki can be quite long, but I'm sure you get the picture. The bottom line is that terrible design descisions were made that seriously detract from the fun. So what's fun in Sudeki? Combat. Once you get accustomed to the controls battles can be pretty exciting. The great part is that when you get tired of killing monsters up close, you can switch to a character with a ranged attack. As for the length, I finished Sudeki in 28 hours. No, I am not an inept gamer. But when I say "finished", I mean it. I completed all side-quests available. I'll never understand why people pay $50 for a game like Sudeki, then beat it in 10 hours. Overall, Sudeki just barely gets a 7/10. Get it if you really want a RPG with real-time combat....but wait for the price to drop. Trust me, it will. Expand

    For those of you that have been eagerly awaiting an RPG on XBOX, you might enjoy this one. Only thing is, it looked like it was going to be more like BG or CON with mostly fighting and minimum story. Don't get me wrong, story is good, but for those of us who don't have enough time to get into this, it can get boring. The fighting is all that was shown in all demos and it looked For those of you that have been eagerly awaiting an RPG on XBOX, you might enjoy this one.

Don't get me wrong, story is good, but for those of us who don't have enough time to get into this, it can get boring. The fighting is all that was shown in all demos and it looked good, especially it having blood, which for this kind of graphic engine, is rare. So for those of you that thought melee was going to finally be done only on XBOX with its graphic powerhouse, be warned, there is a lot of talking and walking around too. Felt like Aidyn Chronicles on N64. Camera wasn't that good either. Expand

    I just rented this game 3 days ago, it was worth the rent, but i wouldn't recommend buying it. The Graphics in the game are great, as is the sound (every character you talk to speaks), but the combat and storyline is why I gave it a 6. In the game you will get 4 playabul characters, 2 use melee wepons and 2 use projectile. The melee fighters use combos to attack, and preforming the I just rented this game 3 days ago, it was worth the rent, but i wouldn't recommend buying it.

The combat for the projectile people just involves running in circles and pressing the right triger. The sroryline got really confuseing about 1/4th way through the game, and the little I did understand was boring. The game had to mutch (pointless) running, Run to point A, then runing to point B, then run back to point A. But if you dont mind the semi decent combat and the... odd story line, u should at least give it a rent. Expand

  1. Despite being set in another dimension, Sudeki feels believable and somehow real.
  2. Solid in all departments. It has some great RPG elements but nothing that is going to catch the gaming market's eye quite like "Knights of the Old Republic."
  3. Think of Sudeki as a trip to the Renaissance faire with your crystal loving anime fan friend from the new age bookstore. You can choose to either drink in the experience, enjoy it for what it is and not scratch too deep; or you can over analyze it, shatter the illusion and trudge around miserable all day.
