Shadow Hearts: FTNW was a huge step down from the previous games. 0

Shadow Hearts: FTNW was a pretty big disappointment. It wasn't a terrible or broken game, it just didn't live up to the previous standards of Shadow Hearts to me. I really enjoyed the first two games, but this one did nothing for me. The battle system is still pretty good, but I really hated the storyline and basically all the playable characters.

Maybe I'm the weird one? 0

 So, after playing Shadow Hearts: Covenant I was about ready to dive into the next game in the series. Covenant was a game that had a fun battle system, crazy cast of characters and, well… A story that, while interesting, was a bit to straightforward for my tastes. There were just not enough twists to keep me hooked. Still, it was a fun game and I enjoyed it. But this review is suppose to be about the third game in the series, Shadow Hearts: From the New World.    From the New World takes place ...
