Both Shadow Hearts 3 and WA 4 are mediocre games, in my opinion. I went all the way through SH3, and while I don't regret doing so, it barely had a plot or character interactions at all. Most of the characters are charming and the gameplay is as good as SH can get (which is both good and bad), but it's not an excellent game by any means.
WA4 had fun mazes with neat puzzle/action elements, decent music...and that's it. The battle system was completely idiotic. It was like they said "what hasn't been done yet?" and when they did it, it was obvious why no one else had done it before. Also, the characters and story are typical, generic anime-ish garbage. A lot of people like that and will eat all the crap that companies shovel at them (then ask for seconds), but I've played too many RPGs to keep going through games like that. My limit is one a year (and I guess that honor went to Shadow Hearts).
