Retro Review: Shadow Hearts
Kyle goes down memory lane to visit Yuri!
05.28.11 - 1:14 PM

When we think back to the PS2 RPG era, it's hard not to remember the Shadow Hearts series. It offered something dark, yet humorous at the same time, and probably one of the best RPG characters to date. I'm talking about Yuri Hyuga, and while the first Shadow Hearts game wasn't where he delivered his infamous: "That's one giant pussy," line, it still was solid in establishing the Yuri and Alice relationship and beyond his mysterious exterior.

Editor Kyle E. Miller decided to go back and play Shadow Hearts because he hasn't been able to find the JRPG love lately. Was it simply a phase or are they lacking the charm that they held over him years ago? Click the link below to find out!
