I have a new girlfriend and her name is Sudeki! No but we all know good RPG's for the box are few and fare between. All and All Sudeki seems like a really well rounded game. Nice fighting system, B E A utiful colorfull graphics and nice upgrades. the only thing so far that i dont like is when exploring i get dizzy and a headache i dont know if its the camera or what(maybe its just me)? But a very satisfying experience and i think it was worth the wait! Definately recommended! beerchug.gif

This game is great i think. fun to play, looks very good, and battle system is neat. sort of a mix between zelda and FF games. only bad thing is that it falls short of those in every aspect. everything just seems like "oh wow...wait a second...thats it?".

i liked it a lot, the problem is that if you are a hard core rpger (marrowind) then this is not the game for you, because this game is to straght forward for you. If yo like a nice straight forward game play it is very good a little slow at first, but very good. th ecombat engine is very well thought out and the game feels very balanced, challenging at times, but never to challenging.

the only problem is the 5.1 surround is horrible, sometimes I can't hear when an enemy is comeing up from behind, and that is the whole point of 5.1. That is my only major complaint about this game. it is atleast worth renting at blockbuster or your movie store and giving it a try.

With the exception of how straight forward and obvious it is, it's actually pretty good. It's very pretty, every so often I just stop for a minute and enjoy the scenery.

I like rpgs like chronotrigger/Zelda:Link to the Past/Mario-RPG, and I was really into Sudeki. Everything played right to my liking. I really enjoyed the eye candy environment and music. It took 27.5 hours to 100% beat the game and I mean level up everyone to the max and go on every side quest possible. I beat it all and had a great time doing it. The cameras didn't hurt my head at all, but I have a friend who can't play crimson skies or he'll hurl so I understand, but Sudeki's camera is right thumbstick controllable so I didn't have a prob. The fighting is exactly how I like it...I'm in control unlike in Star Wars:KOTOR. I dig the colors/music/story/and I thought the voice acting was on par.

On the otherhand...I am completely and totally uninterested in starting a game of Morrowind so morrorwinders may feel something different...as in they compare everything to it. I dunno, everytime I watch my friend playing Morrowind or KOTOR I'm compelled to fall asleep. Morrorwind seems like a hardcore rpg for peeps that...well, are hardcore rpg gamers. Another thing...I'm not looking for a game that goes on for months. I like closure...I want to feel like I beat something and Sudeki filled my empty spot for a good rpg in a long time.

I'm gonna go watch some fable trailers...,I really like the "animeish" bright and colorful settings in some rpgs...so sudeki was a dead ringer.

Curious does it have realtime weather like Grandtheft Auto? Or does it have any weather at all(rain,storm,snow,ect)? Might sound dumb but I dig a game that does this because it adds more to it.

the only weather you'll see is sunny skies, cloudy skies, or all dark and gloomy. I've beat the game and i dont remember seeing any sort of precipitation fall from the sky. I may have just forgotten though.

Now that its over, another complaint i have is that its too short. Ive done the main quest with all best weapons, and it took me under 16 hours. Granted there are a few sidequests that i have yet to do, but thats still way too short IMO.

i agree other than the game is very straght forward and you dont really have the option to wander around the rest is a pretty enjoyable experience and at least worth a rental! I paid $50 for it and am satisfied! beerchug.gif

Sudeki is pretty fun. But i dont like the camera, i get all dizzy and tired in my eyes :/
I hoped that i would be more lika a roleplaying game, but now i'ts a action rpg. That sucks. The graphics is really neet and so on. The story could be better, but what should you expect?

I am afraid I will have to agree with the person who posted their negative feelings for the game.

I am by every plausible definition of the phrase a "casual rpg gamer." I played and enjoyed KOTOR over 3 times. I gave Morrowind a whirl and enjoyed it but could not get into it as much as I would have liked (but still recognize it for a wonderful piece of software.) I enjoy getting into games that you progress, gain power, and simply evolve. Story, as long as it isn't too far out there, is an after thought to me. If I want story I will read a book. I however DESPISE turn based combat systems. I am by nature a real time gamer. First person shooters and 2D fighters are my bread and butter. I dislike the Final Fantasy franchise with a heated passion.

With that said I was in fact *excited* for this game. It was going to be the single player leveling experience to tide me over until Fable's release. Currently I'm playing City of Heroes so my RPG thirst (what little their is) is adequately being quenched. Boy did disappointment follow...

My first hint that this game may in fact not be exactly what my mind had already made it up to be was the mixed reviews that were pouring in. I saw a lot of 6'sand 7's. Upon actually reading the reviews they sounded closer to 4's and 5's but gave mercy to the XBox's barely increasing RPG library. Instead of continuing on this long winded tunnel of mental excrement, I'll simply list some pro's and (mostly) con's that this game appeared to have to me: a casual RPG gamer.

The main thing that appealed to me initially was the combat system. Real time and action packed. Sounds like fun, right? It ended up being a mildly bland hack-n'-slash with a 3 hit combo system. You can pretty much meld together any possible combination of A and X together to perform a nicely animated combo as long as your timing is on. This was absolutely no challenge.

You did not run into mobs randomly along the path nor could you hunt them, but you would enter "arena" like area's where combat would take place. This took me out of the game to a great extent.

Realistically you can only control one avatar at a time, and once one of your other avatars is in the hands of the AI, the damage he or she deals is relatively cut in half for no real reason. Your ranged casters can upgrade their weaponry to do more damage but take an increased amount of time to cast pretty much negating any real need to upgrade as the DPS remains practically the same.

You have the ability to launch special attacks from the UI by spending SP that will pause combat to show you the so-so animations the developers dreamed up. Their is no way to pause this, skip it, or speed it up. Imagine how tedious this gets later in the game when your healer is healing ad nasium. This aspect alone can really take you out of the game.

The controls on the other hand were fine. They took no time getting used to. The camera was about on par with most 3rd person console games which is to say 'not very good.'

Other aspects that are more appealing to the hardcore RPGers were also lacking. If their was a story of any real significance I must have skipped right past it. The voice acting and scripting was so drab and cliche it was literally painful. As I am sure most of you know the graphics were above par, but not by much. I honestly was not impressed but I certainly was not disappointed. The SFX and musical scoring were both satisfactory but once again nothing wonderful or worth excessive praise.

In short I can see people enjoying the game if they are really looking for something to enjoy, but Sudeki is *not* a good game. It is 100% mediocre.

(I apologize for all the typo's, spelling errors, and poor diction. You will have to find a way to sift through it if you so chose.)
