Shadow of Destiny User Reviews
It's just so different. The fact that you die at the beginning of the game, which then begins the twists and turns of your little Adventure. The graphics for this game were some of the most impressive I've ever caught sight of, so detailed that you feel you can actually reach out and touch it.
The characters were creatively done, starting of with the long blonde male Eike Kusch, the main character who is trying to avoid his own death. Poor guy. Though on his first death, a strange and metallic voice calls out to him in a strange place...telling him, he can avoid death and find out who his killer is. This storyline is just a bunch of chills, thrills and amusing deaths for the poor guy.
With the multiple endings, it really gives you a challenge trying to find them all and understand who, what and why it all happened? For a game like this, you wouldn't think time travelling would mix in with the modern kind of scenery, but this along with the small digipad gave to you by the unusual voice takes you back to yesterday, 100 years....even 500 years ago.
I have to admit the game was short, but I think the only reason for that is because they made so many endings for it.
This may not be a good reason, but hey.. The fact they couldn't get a sequel or prequel going. lol also, for the PC, Konami didn't really have good support for it.
I think it's ashame the game wasn't as popular as what I might have expected. It's also ashame they have't done a sequel which I really wish for.
It's a puzzling game which gets your mind going with great character design and a good plot to it. Though it maybe short, you still have some many endings to figure out. Not only that, but Demon Homunculus is such a great, cool and sly charcater.
Deep and catching game script
Plenty of mysteries to solve
Puzzles are not too difficult
Several alternative endings
Too many loading screens
The game is short
Shadow of Destiny is definitely a game worth trying, especially if you are a fan of the mystery genre. Although SOD is a short game, it catches you from the moment you start playing with it's original game play. It is only a matter of time to understand everything but you will have to wait until the end in order to realize the truth and understand why someone is trying to kill Eike (the main character).
The game contains pretty much puzzles to solve. The good thing is that they are not very hard if you can think logically.
One of the things I don't like about the game is that it has LOTS of ...
Expressive characters, unique setting, non-linear storyline. Fun for both amateurs and game prosThe bad:
Poor console conversion (bad Konami! BAD!), inconsistent time-travel rulesSummary:
One of the first things I said when I started playing this game was "Oh god, do the cutscenes ever end? When am I going to get to the game?", especially since the cutscenes can't be skipped until you have saved, and saving can only be done when you have completed the chapter. After much frustration, I realized 2 things:
1) you CAN save halfway through a chapter, but you have to do it in a special way that is inconvenient and not obvious*.
2) to a large degree, the cutscenes ARE the game.
This is not as lame as it may sound. Once you accept the fact that this game is more of an interactive ...
A little short ^-^;Summary:
This game is great. The story is so gripping and interesting. It's easy to play and good fun. With 6 alterante endings you'll want to keep playing it! It's a shame but this game was under-rated by many because of it's length. The graphics are great, and dialogue some of the best I've heard! And the character designs are so original!
And to sum it all up!
Buy it! It's great!
