RPGamer: Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment (XBLA) Review

Vandal Hearts is an affirmation that a small company without gobs of funds can take a game premise and turn it into a true treasure. Though the game isn't terribly friendly to newcomers of the tactical subgenre, anyone who is familiar with strategic planning and thinking should have no problems diving right in and enjoying this title repeatedly. With multiple endings and achievements to unlock associated with them, there are many reasons to not only pick it up, but to keep playing long after the game has been completed once.

+ Terrific battle system
+ Solid menus
+ Quaint story
- Odd story pacing near end
- Long load times
- Not newbie friendly

The story is too old to be commented.
