I am almost positive the voice actor for Lenny is the same. This makes me squee in joy.

I've only played an hour of it, but already it's nifty. More later when I actually get time to sit and play it.

Either they're the same, or a pair of very good sound-a-likes:  Todd hodges voices Lenny in Shadow Hearts: Covenant, while Scottie Ray voices him in From the New World. Both of these names are from their respective game manuals.

What a pain, I have a huge commission to finish during the week, and I'm really gripped by the game! It will be hard to balance my time :P

Quote from: "KeeperX"

She mentioned nothing about Yuri in the review, but did mention how the new cast wasn't as strong as the old cast, which is a completely valid complaint.  I don't believe the cast is nearly as strong as Covenant's.  I disliked Johnny, didn't think much of anything of Natan, thought Mao was useless and flat out didn't care about anyone but Frank, and even he wasn't that great.  While XSEED's translation is top-notch, I never once felt attached to the characters.


Hereís my early comment as a fan-boy.

Now that I'm pretty advanced in the game, I must admit that the new cast is awfully poor. Iím very deceived with this aspect.

Half of the characters are cheesy and non-sense, and sadly sometime the game focus more on them than the serious characters. Shadow Hearts is becoming a comical genre rather than a solemn game (which was the strong point of the series, and itís being slowly destroyed).

I hate the talking cat - Master Mao. The same for Ol-Frank. Heís always there to make stupid jokes when the events are supposed to be somber. Itís ruining everything. Itís okay to have funny characters, but only when theyíre not over-abused in the script.

The soundtrack isnít getting better in the series too. Sometime I almost have the impression Iím playing with Banjo KazooieÖ for god's sake, it's SHADOW HEARTS.

Except these details the game is great though. But yeah it merit no more than 8/10, and even as a fan-boy I can admit that.

I'm not surprised by this really. You could see the progression from the first to 2nd game, becoming more comical, more sexual innuendo etc.

Wow, now here's a score worth complaining about. Though, while the score's pretty low, the review doesn't really come off as very negative, yet manages to give strong reasoning for why it deserved the score it got.

Edit: Note that I don't consider the reviewer an idiot or whatever for giving it a low score; I'm just noting that it's a lot closer to a legitimate complaint than what Captain Moron was doing earlier. :P

The first 4 hours of Shadow Heart: FtNW was simply extraordinary, flawless.

But then, it started to become a succession of cheezy humor as soon as Ol-Frank, Mao and Hilda joined the party... And unfortunatelly their presence is strong...

I'm just 7 hours deep in the game and I'm hoping against hope it will come back to a solemn mood and stay to it...

I would like to see more interaction from Johnny, Shania, Natan and Ricardo, and I would like Ol-Frank, Master Mao and Hilda to stop interacting in the storyline in an exagerated way... because they can't add anything serious in the storyline.

blackthirteen,

That's exactly what makes me not interested in the new SH game. If not for this aspect, I would had enjoyed Covenant a big deal more; this and the fact it was so annoyingly easy. It seems they fixed the later complaint, but I am not too sure I can stand the early flaw. If there was not other games to be played, but there are many which I want to play eventually.

Nope. If it's anyone it's either me or Ash.

That said . . . it's me. Ash fails.
