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 marvelous 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...

Sudeki is a title from the original Xbox that has gained a cult following due to its colourful visuals, eccentric cast of characters, unintentionally hilarious voice acting and blend of action RPG combat and JRPG sensibilities.
The games combat is the highlight, the game offering four party members divided into two combo-based melee characters and two ranged characters that playread more in first person. As well as bosses and quests that will test your ability to use each character. The games spell casting plays out like a turn-based JRPG, with the game slowing down to show off each characters most powerful abilities.
Now that the game is free of archaic DRM that made the original PC release a pain to install and run on modern systems Sudeki is a game highly recommended to anyone looking for a console RPG experience.
The only thing holding back the PC port this time is a lack of mouse driven menus. I'd highly recommend the use of a pad as it makes the game easier to navigate and even makes combat as the two melee party members feel more responsive.

I was just reminiscing about this game two weeks ago. I was wondering where I could find a copy of this game and an Xbox to play it...
Sudeki was Microsoft's attempt at gaining more exposure to the RPG market for it's original Xbox. The game took longer than usual to develop, which increased the expectation and unfortunately increased the let down as well. It's not to say thatread more Sudeki is a bad game, but at the time it wasn't what gamers were expecting.
Sudeki is an Action RPG, with annoying puzzle challenges, and an almost laughable story-line. What Sudeki does right is combat. What it also does right is give you 4 characters to choose from with lots of skill customization, a decent play time of about 40 hours (if I remember correctly), and some luscious character models.
It may not have been the RPG to convince gamers to purchase consoles, but it was good enough that even years later I still wish I had a copy to play. AND NOW I DO!

I have fond memories of playing Sudeki on the original X-Box as a kid and remember it was a very fun time, so when i saw this pop up on GOG i just had to get it out of sheer nostalgia. While it's still a lot of fun, it does have a fair few issues that keep it from being a much greater game
- Fluid and fun Combat System (3rd person Melee fighting and 1st person shooting andread more spell casting)
- Includes 4 playable characters, each with different skills and move sets
- Simple yet well done RPG Mechanics
- Colorful environments
- Solid PC port with enhanced A.I from the X-Box port
- Some interesting quests
- 40+ Hours of gameplay
-Very poor Story
- Laughable voice acting
- Dated Graphics
- Somewhat Linear level design
-Hit or miss sound design
With all of this in mind it's very hard to recommend, but i guess you just need to realise just what it is you're expecting from a game like this. If you're looking for a hidden RPG gem with in depth Role playing mechanics and a marvelous story, you're going to be VERY disappointed.
However if you're like me and occasionally just want a simple yet unique Action RPG with fantastic and satisfying combat mechanics, good questing and progression with a story you can laugh at kept out of the way, then there really isn't much better on GOG right now then Sudeki. It was mindlessly fun then, and it's just as mindlessly fun now!
