Tribute to my favorite video game series. :)
They are cult classics now. The gameplay for Shadow Hearts 1 doesn’t really hold up in my opinion, but the monster designs, story, and music are great. Best monster designs and music, definitely.
Shadow Hearts: Covenant (SH2) is much more fun to play, the music is just as good if not a little better, and the story is a little more intriguing. SH2 is a direct sequel, but fully recaps SH1 within the game, so if you only ever get a chance to play one game, go for SH2.
That being said, this video 100% spoils the ending to both SH1 and SH2, including a somewhat major “twist” in SH2.
I had wanted to do a Shadow Hearts music video to Madonna – Die Another Day for such a long time… After I came out of my hiatus, I tried to make it happen, but ultimately it didn’t work out and I switched gears, using this combination and eventually making this video instead.
Below are all the files- the abandoned Die Another Day attempts, all the betas for Besotten, and of course the final video.
