It's certainly nowhere near the same level as Clover's overlooked swan song, but the stylish gothic tactical-role-player Eternal Poison comes from a similar position: It's definitely not for everyone. It's not even for every strategy-RPG fan. But 1UP played a ton of games, and at some point, many of 'em kinda blend together. Trust them when they say that they won't be forgetting Eternal Poison anytime soon -- if there's such a thing as "gothic medieval noir," this is it. Not to give away the narrative, but if you had the patience for novel fare like Odin Sphere and Suikoden III -- games that feature multiple takes on an overarching saga -- you'll probably welcome Eternal Poison's storytelling.
