IGN writes: "While the screenshots for Vandal Hearts may not be inspiring, I assure you the game looks better in motion. But, more importantly, this isn't a game about style or looks. It's a tactical RPG on XBLA/PSN. That's an incredibly rare thing. And I am definitely looking forward to spending a bit more time with Vandal Hearts as my demo was far too short, my characters abilities far too limited to really get a sense of what the full game has to offer".
