About This Game

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...

  • Real-time, bone-crunching combat with incredible spells and combos.
  • Control any one of the four champions at any time, and skip between them at will.
  • Customise each character's armour, weapons and spells and evolve new powerful attacks.

Ok! I'll admit it I am not a huge fan of older PC/X-Box Hack and slash RPGs but this game impressed me!
I mean REALLY IMPRESSED ME!
My only complaint is the controls they're a bit stiff

the only thing I can say that will come even remotely close to doing this game justice is: just buy this game and see it's wonder yourself

Good Semi-Action RPG. Mediocre but passable story. Combat is mixed with FPS shooting and timed melee clicks. Graphics are old but still easy on the eyes. Worth the price.

Sudeki honestly feels a little like a JRPG version of Fable.

+ Very well made HD remake. Kept the game how it looked liked, while making lines more defined and adding shadows.
+ Old school feel.
+ Very comfy.
+ Original story.
+ The whole game is played as a team of four, with small chapters focusing on single characters.
+ First- person combat using Ailish and Elco
+ Pretty ladies

+- The voice acting is terrible, but it adds charm to the game. Cracking voices, crappy emulations of accents, etc.

- Melee combat is extremely lame imo. Combos are too slow to feel useful.
- Controls on keyboard and mouse feels wierd.

I can highly recommend this game to any fans of classic or action RPGs. The value for the price is great even without a sale, and with a sale it should be in the library of every RPG fan.

+Graphics good for the time, and hold up decently
+Fully voiced dialogue for all conversations
+Unique characters with different traits and talents, customize as you level
+Decent story depth and length (15-20hrs likely depending on style)
+Unique and fun combination of first-person and third-person real time combat
+Switch seamlessly among party members in and out of combat
+Equipping different weapons/armor will change character model appearance
+Controls customizable and work well, keyboard/mouse or game controller
+Plenty of exploration, side quests, and treasures for those interested

-Voice acting is mediocre, sound/music is nothing memorable
-Camera can be annoying at times
-Map system is not great, easy to get turned around in dungeons
-Only 4 playable characters
-Armor changes occur with the story so if you prefer one look there is no going back

I say a few games are my "favorite". Those are PC games though, this one hasn't been, but now it is. This one actually IS my favorite game (of all, including consoles). I was pretty livid to learn my disk wouldn't run on the 360, it was a pretty crappy feeling to think I wouldn't be able to play this again.
The Game:

Exploration and melee combat is similar to Fable (simple, easy to master, and comfortable to use), it is somewhat linear, but you can teleport here and there, and sometimes take a fork and wander off. Combat-wise, for melee, you can do 3 button combos, using X (heavy) or A (light). XXA, AXA, XAA, XAX, XXX, and so on. Each of these combos has different speeds, animations, knockbak, damage, and status effects (some do, some don't). You can also block and roll, again much like Fable. Unlike Fable, the two melee characters (one focused on DPS, one on Tanking), they all have skills/abilities, about 5 each. I suggest watching some gameplay videos about it, easier than me trying to explain their gameplay.

Ranged combat is a FPS game, weapons recharge, they don't use ammo. The two ranged characters also have abilities as well, some of their weapons have impressive effects to make up for the lack of combos (such as piercing and heavy knockdown, etc). You can switch between the characters at any time as they are available through the story.

Leveling up lets you customize the character to suit your playstyle. Are you playing the mage, but don't really care for the spells, you just want to maximize your weapon damage? You can do that. Just want spells? You can do that too.

There are only a few armors per character, and they are earned by going through the story. Weapons are trickier, some can be bought, some are actually hidden and you have to find them. Each character gets their own weapon with a status effect (I think some have multiple) with things such as debuffs and poison.

The game manages to really be challenging, some places more than others. As many times as I've beaten it, there are places where I still struggle from time to time. You have to be smart about how you play your characters, what orders you give, and what skills you use at what time. Pay attention to status effects, because they can be what saves or breaks you.

In regards to bugs/glitches, I'm pretty glad to say, I've never had a single one. I've played at least 100 hours of this game on xbox, and so far around 20 hours on Steam, never crashed, never froze, never had anything that required me to restart or reload the game. I have seen a couple reviews of people saying they experienced this, but I tend to have pretty good luck when it comes to avoiding bugs (somehow).

This is a great RPG and I highly recommend it. It has pretty decent graphics (it is an almost 10 year old game) and the gameplay is engaging and fun. You go through a quest that gets bigger and more complicated as you continue. You pick up sidequests as you go along. The combat is fun, too. It is an action RPG and as you get more playable characters and skills, things become more challenging.

Incredibly, the game reminded me a lot of Landstalker for the sega genesis. The reason is because the game world is so beautiful and well put together. Each town has a destinctive look and feel and even seems alive. Also, the pacing is just right with a progression that feels natural and is interesting.

Overall, I was suprised at how deep the game is. It has virtually everything you could want from an RPG.

One other note: the game is amazingly optimized for PC. The loadtimes which I assume existed on the console are eliminated on PC. The game worked great with keyboard and mouse, but I prefer playing with the gamepad. Also, the graphics options are easily accessible and modifiable.

sudeki is an obscure RPG that got its start on the original Xbox. The game was largely ignored but it shouldn't have been. The game takes about 20-30 hours and can best be described as a slightly mroe open Fable. The characters are interesting if a bit cliched. The graphics are surprisingly good for the time period also. The audio is standard fare with a few standout tracks (New Brightwater). Overall it's a fun game with some unique ideas such as the two ranged chaacters using first-person mode in combat maknig them paly like they're in an FPS. (a tip: If you're using a controller, when using these characters, use a mouse to aim as it's MUCH faster).

Overall an enjoyable title and well worth it at the price point.

It really says something about a game when 10 years on, after having already finished it, I buy it again to play. Such an enjoyable game.

This is a decent Action RPG. I'd recommend it for anyone out there looking for a simple ARPG if you're not afraid of a few ugly 3D models. It's not my place to criticize the character design but they're a bit over-the-top and heavily influenced by anime, not that it matters but this game is not japanese.

This game was one of the handful of RPGs that Microsoft made with interest of slipping the Xbox console into the Japanese market. While the game was not a commercial success, what we ended up having was easily a fantastic RPG on Xbox and even though it's been out for PC for quite a while, it's such an obscure game that nobody really noticed it much and now we have it on Steam and I couldn't be happier.

The story, as well as the characters are somewhat forgetable, but it's got amazing scenery, the style of the world is similar to Fable and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Very colorful, full of fantastic devices and monuments and very green with lots of vegetation too.
The gameplay is the most important element in this game: it's fluid and it gives you a few choices, you can play an action hack-and-slash type of character or a First Person Shooter type.
You get 4 characters to play with, all play together in the battlefield but you take control of one while AI takes over the others. 2 of them use Melee (Hack-and-Slash) and the other 2 use long range attacks (FPS).
Each of them has different skills and combos and you can enter a slow-motion mode when you go through the skills and pick one to use, so the game never truly feels like it comes to a halt. This makes things stay interesting for a while.

I could go on and on about who's who and what each character does but honestly, it's not that important, just know they're all very different in their style even if their gameplay is similar. Combos are different, they use different weapons, skills are definitely very very different so you'll have favorites. Also, all their one-liners are SUPER CHEESY so you can't escape those either way.
The voice acting is not very good, you can see it's not a big budget game but these fantasy RPG type of games are TEXT-HEAVY so the voice acting is basically cutscenes and one-liners.

On the technical aspect of the port: I am playing with an official Xbox 360 Gamepad and it's playing really GOOD, no complaints on the controller scheme, it's basically the same as back on the Xbox (although it's been almost 8 years so...don't quote me on that). The only problem I see is how the game text uses "Button1" and "Button2" instead of labeling it "X" and "A", but that's not a big deal.
I'm not on the high-end of PC gaming but I can run this game fine and so far I've seen no issues with widescreen or sudden crashes (from a bit of play-testing) and the frames per second seem fine too, I do see some issues with vertical sync but it doesn't take away from the experience. I do wish there were some mods for this though, some 2D art and 3D models are ugly (my opinion) and I'd love to change them.

Although it is not some sort of hidden underrated gem, it's definitely a good game that didn't get enough attention and I'm sure most sales for this will be nostalgia-induced, and that's not necesarily a bad thing. It's based on something real good, enough to stay in your mind and make you want to play it again.

Sudeki....This game consumed my life back on the original Xbox back in the day, my love for this game holds no bounds. Set in a time where swords and futuristic come together as your Queen has you roam the country side collecting crystals. The Shadows always hide new enemies. The game machanics are based on timed attacks with pressing A or X at the right moments to perform strong combos againist your foe.

This game is really worth playing.
The graphics are a bit old but the story and gameplay are great.
And the Voice overs are great as well except for that scientist Elco who has a Dutch accent.

Not only the fighting is great but it also has great puzzles you need to solve to get further in the game, and each character has his/her own ability to solve a puzzle.

The characters also look great, especially Ailish and Buki who both have a great...uhhhh...personallity!!

I owned the original game and soundtrack and loved every second of it. When I saw it one Steam, I couldn't wait to play it. There were definitely some graphical bugs that I had to work out to get it to play smoothly (which confuses me for a game that is so old, but whatever), and once I did, it runs great.

It's a different type of RPG that's for sure. There are no 'random' encounters so to speak, instead enemies pop-up when you walk through certain areas and all the exits become blocked until you defeat them. You do get levels and points to spend on various things like health, damage, magic abilities, magic power, etc. There are a numerous amount of weapons for each character, but only one set of armor that gets upgraded through out the game.

If you are a fan of simple pleasures and easy to get lost in games, then give it a go. For $6 ($3 on sale) what have you got to lose?

Sudeki is a game where you get to play 4 heros in a fantasy world trying to stop evil. You have the sword guy(who is a tank), a dude witha gun (who shoots good), a nice pair of breasts and a nice ♥♥♥ with a magic stick (she heals), and a nice pair of breasts and a nice ♥♥♥ with claws(she does... stuff(?)).

The aim of the game is to try and collect crystals to help your empire, or at least thats what they would have you believe. The real aim of the game is to find the best weapon for each person, gun guy automatically starts off with a rad gun that shoots through enemies with high damage, healing breasts gets her cool staff mid way through the game, it does the same as gun guys weapon(shoots through enemies, high damage, high crit), claw lady gets her good weapon early on when you visit her tribe of furries and retrieve their bad dragon order from a temple. sword guys stuff is all kinda okay, just use him to tank damage.

The game looks pretty rad, apart from all the cutscenes, which for some reason look kinda pixelated and rubbish. Sometimes you get some cutscenes that aren't the prescripted ones and the AI will walk in dumb positions . Butt that doesn't matter too much.

The combat system is rather cool and needs skill and timing to get combos rather than mashing buttons, then again in combat all I ever did was "X, X, A, > A, A, X" which had a nice continous loop for juggling enemies.

All out this game is pretty good for something originally released on the ORIGINAL xbox. I rate it 10/10 it's okay.
