Beating back some balance into the world.

Sudeki, a vibrant anime-ish action-RPG with exciting real-time battles and a robust character development system, is available on GOG.com for only $5.99.

Sudeki, a world torn apart into light, shadow and dark. Rent asunder by deceit and betrayal, the land cries out for a peace that only four united heroes can bring. Beyond the protective walls of Illumina Castle lie miles of pastoral, rolling countryside, though once a serene landscape, the Aklorian forces have transformed the countryside into a charred battlefield. Simply passing through the region is unsafe, as travellers must be ever alert for ambushes. Four friends have joined together to aid their queen. Though destined to encounter ancient gods, primordial wonders, and marvellous inventions, foes and betrayal haunt their every step. A keen eye could prove vital, exposing essential clues. And as the companions make their way through darkness and light, they’ll discover that those two extremes have more in common than they once imagined… With real-time, bone-crunching combat with incredible spells and combos, the ability to control any one of the four champions at any time, and skip between them at will, and the power to customize each character's armor, weapons, and spells and evolve new powerful attacks, this colorful action-RPG title is a real blast to play!

When Europeans experiment with the anime aesthetics interesting things happen, and Sudeki is a perfect example of that rule. Check it out, for only $5.99 on GOG.com.
I was thinking about this game the other day, I have this on the old black xbox (still), anyone know how it controls on PC, cos I would love to have a (probably) higher definition version.
Why have I never even heard of this game?
To me, some games can be "Classic" even when they are, or were new, such as the Homeworld series or Morrowind or the Baldurs Gate series, while others might earn that classification over time. It really doesn’t indicate whether a game is one I’ll want to own and play.

This game looks good, has some interesting gameplay features and art style. At this price I’m going to get it as a curiosity buy to add to my collection. :)
Random thing I just noticed about this title: Suteki (Japanese word) means beautiful - I wonder if this title was intentional when they decided on this name. Considering the game looks to have some Japanese influences, I'd say this is probably the case, but I wonder if the people who decided the name are still around to tell us.
Hmm, animals as avatars for the character in an RPG are somehow not my thing.

I would love a bit of asian style mystery flavor and supernatural but I guess not like this.
I still remember these endless coridors and super cheesy liners... Never finished that, one of the first magazine DVD extras I sold on local version of ebay.

It is cool to see so many releases per one day.

My thanks to you both - I appreciate the input. Definitely going to get this... the question is when. :-)

Redfoxe: But its almost ten years old!.
Thats kinda classic now isnt it, maybe not a good one, but still a bit old...darn, time flies fast....
I agree... 2005 does not feel like it was that long ago to me (nor, for that matter does 2001, or even 1997, but I digress).

The time DOES fly! Hell, even Morrowind is over 10 years old now, with Oblivion about to reach the mark! XD Feel so old now!

rtcvb32: Hmmm I have the impression a lot of games from the XBox and PS2 are going to be ported to PC soon and be much like this game, accessible so the game isn't lost due to no longer supported hardware.
That is my one big beef with consoles now that backward compatibility is discouraged... the game being tied to the life of the system. I have such a backlog that the system would expire long before I can get to it. By getting them on the PC there is at least a chance they may still be playable when I get to them.

It looks so cheesy I just had to get it. The videos I've seen make it look like a B-movie in game form. :)

mistermumbles: Frankly, I prefer the five point system[..]

phaolo: 5 stars is too much unprecise for my likings, but I think that users should be able to choose their preferred system (5 as default, advanced 10 or even 100).
Also, 5 stars ratings often end up in the "half star" scale, which is basically equal to a 10 stars system!
I actually agree with this.5 stars is too limiting when especially there is a lot that could impact on a score (on a proper detailed review -- pretty hard to find these days imho)

Someone said it has a Total Overdose vibe to it?

I don't have any experience with Total Overdose so I unfortunately wouldn't know. Sorry.

Yeah, perhaps that's something that can be used to hit some publishers/designers to use PC more. You know, ask like 'So how much money is xxx game still making?' and could name something off like Scrapland (Xbox) and Dark Alliance (Xbox/PS2), and as if the short term of the console was worth making it an exclusive.

Mmm suddenly I have old memories surfacing of going to Fort Bragg, and they were trying to get us to sign up to be Airborn and using really bad examples of how the extra $150 a month would let us get like big screen TV's vs the crappy little handheld black and white one and such. It was funny, yet somehow it comes to mind. Forgive my rambling..
Yay! \o/

I am so glad I resisted buying this on Steam, recently. Now, I can spend my money at GOG, instead. )
YES! Thank you GOG! It was such a pain to install Sudeki on a Windows 7 System with the original CD. And now it's so easy with the release :D
And the game itself is also a very nice addition to my collection ;)
I loved to play this game way to much, time to play it again :D
Had It for Xbox. Can't resist getting it again here for PC. I really enjoyed this game. Thanks GOG. ;)

Having played both, I'd say that no Sudeki does not have any kind of TO vibe to it beyond feeling like a low budget knockoff of a more popular (and better) game.

Scrapland is available for PC as well. It's not all that good a game, about a 5/10 score IMO.
