Finally new Vandal Hearts
#1
To be honest, I would never thought I would see another game in this series. It is for me the best news this year and a big surprise for me.

I wonder what kind of mechanics in the gameplay that is different this time.

The first Vandal Hearts was very straight forward, no random battles as I remember it. Plus unlike Final Fantasy Tactics where you could change Job-classes as you wished, Vandal Hearts had you make a choice if you wanted the muscle guys to either be Sword or Axeman, Flyer or Archer etc.

I hope they keep those "blood showers" when you kill the enemy of flesh - or popcorn explosion when you kill a golem type enemy.[Image: vandal4ju5.jpg]

The second title (Vandal Hearts II) had something I never seen before, as Ben mentioned. The enemy moved at the same time as you did, and if you got the hang of it, you could predict where it would go and maybe move that character behind and strike him there.

Plus weight counted in these games, so if you go on the same tile as the enemy and you weigh more than him you would push him out and then cancel his move.


Well, this game just speeded up my #1 spot, what do you guys think and feel about this.

If you played the original or not. I guess we wont see Ash Lambert again since this new game got all new cast. :hump:

It's gonna be good to see this series revived, but I want to see the original rereleased. I try to look for it online every so often, but can never find it.

Nice to see the series back. I never played the original properly myself, but I did see friends playing and it looked interesting.

I just had a look and found the original game available secondhand from Amazon and eBay (US and UK for both sites), and an NTSC pirate download. Not cheap, but it's there.

Yeah, I was happy to see this, too. I played, completed, and own both of the first two Vandal Hearts. Loved them both, but I think the sequel was better (a HELL of a lot longer, at the very least). I was a huge strat/RPG fan a most of you know, and I really can't think of one I had more fun with than VH2 (save FFT, of course). I also think VH2 has one of the best written scripts of the time.

When Konami sent over the press release for Zombie Apocalypse and directed me towards their secure server where they supposedly had some media for it, I didn't see it on their list...but I did see the name, "Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment," and I was like, "ooooh, what's THAT for?!" I was hoping against hope it wouldn't be another handheld title and I was all kinds of happy when, about 10 minutes later, Konami sent another press release for the new VH. Smile

Well Vandal Hearts was my first introduction on the S/RPG before FFT took over everything. Vandal Hearts 2 was great and I did finish it eventually - the final boss was too easy though and most dissapointing.

I really don't remember the final boss. But I know I did absolutely everything and jacked my party through the roof (as I always do in these games), and it took about 60 hours.

haha I meant for a price I can afford right now. If I wasn't a student and had some money, I would get it. But right now, I can't afford any games at all. Just wish I could pick it up cheap Sad

I check out Amazon and Ebay, but as stated above, there are either no copies available at the time, or I bid and the price goes through the roof. Just not my time...
