Trivia

This game was plagued by internal conflict within the development team. Hiroki Kikuta wanted to take the RPG genre into a new direction while the others wanted to do something more close to what Squaresoft (now Square Enix) was doing at the time. Kikuta wanted the game to be action-oriented, citing Resident Evil as inspiration. Kikuta departed Sacnoth after the game was released and Sacnoth changed their name to Nautilus. This game is considered the source material for the series Shadow Hearts, as the games take place in the Koudelka universe. See more »

A jewel..
21 September 2006 | by J-ionSee all my reviews

I originally bought this game because I liked the cover art(back then that was good enough for me) and I soon discovered that it was one of the best choices I've made. Gameplay is very hard and will annoy you a lot but the rest of it is so amazing that you don't really care Wonderful eerie atmosphere, music that captivates you and one of the best if not the best voice acting jobs I've heard. The look of the game is also phenomenal. From mold ridden places to beautifully decorated rooms, courtyards to towers, this game has stunning locations The characters all feel very real and subtly make you sink into their world. The voice acting is a big help but they are also very nicely written. Unfortunately, I don't have the game anymore but I plan to buy it again as soon as I find it. Definitely worth playing. It's a must have.
