Good Role Playing Game
I enjoyed this game a lot. It reminded me of the Aveyond games. My only complaint is there wasn't a world map to look at and I was frequently confused about where I was.
If you enjoy role playing games, you will like this one.

Pretty good RPG game
Vagrant hearts is quite a good RPG game, though not of the same quality as Aveyond. The best thing in it is the story line.
The graphics are a bit repetitive - most villages look very much alike, for example, and the inside of the buildings are quite similar too.
Some places in the game get to be annoying, because you have to battle the same enemies over and over.
And one thing that is frustrating is that you never know which of your characters are going to be in your party next, so that it's hard to adapt their equipment to the challenges you'll encounter.
Another thing that is disappointing is that you don't find or win items that really make a difference for your characters.
And there are no secret rooms, or hidden caches, so don't loose your time looking around too much.
All in all, a pretty good game. Yes. But not in the same league as Aveyond.

Good games don't require good graphics!
I'll start from the only negative aspect of this game, to get rid of it. The graphic quality is FAR below average, it seems a "90s" game, like Monkey Island or Larry Leisure.
But, like those venerable games, VA is very good on several other aspects.
The storyline is really good and you will find yourself quickly involved in it. The characters are well delineated with their positive and negative aspects. Level of challenge is good, and in the last levels, the game can be really tricky to beat.
Last but not least... a poor graphics stimulates fantasy - and believe me, this is an excellent result for a game.
Definitely recommended, I hope to see a sequel soon or late

Take another look at this game
If you like RPGs but want a break from huge world maps with frequent backtracking and many sidequests, Vagrant Hearts will give you RPG gameplay without a lot of filler.
Most of the dungeons and towns are fairly well designed and you get a decent choice of spells you can assign to different party members.
If you enjoy the story of the two sisters, you'll probably want to consider Vagrant Hearts 2.

Pretty good RPG with some flaws
The good thing about this game is that it is a decent length, well worth the money. The story line is interesting and a little different.
The not so good things are that there are no Quest log or map, I would think beginning RPG gamers will have a tough time with this.
You also don't get to pick your party, instead for each quest it is chosen for you. Spells are partly earned with leveling, and partly by assigning "spell crests" to a character. Since characters change per quest, you may not have access to a certain spell all the time.
There are also a few frustrating factors, like a tower with multiple levels that is just tedious (hint check the forum for a way to bypass this) and repetitious battles.
Summary, not as good as Aveyond, but I will buy and play the second in the series.
