This game is a very good and fun follow-up to the Gothic, horror, science fiction game Shadow Hearts. Granted most of the horror is removed for this one and more humor added. And what is this? Can it be? A role playing game that is actually a direct sequel to the original rather than a completely different game and it isn't set in the distant future or past? Yes, Yuri is back and he has problems...a mad priest or something has shoved a cursed object into his chest and he only has a limited time to try and find a cure. Once again the judgment wheel is here to add some excitement to the combat which there are a couple of new touches as well. He meets a lot of interesting characters too as they range from the mysterious beauty Karin, to an old puppeteer, and even a gay wrestling vampire. Yes, only in the world of Shadow Hearts. It does get a bit goofy at times, but at others it is extremely somber as Yuri must confront the guilt he feels for another he felt he let down in the past. The game uses cinematic movie scenes great, good villains and a few surprising twists as well make this a very great and complete role playing adventure that stretches from Europe to Japan during World War I.
