Review by Tom Allen
2½ Stars out of 4

As the title female character Koudelka, you begin your adventure in the haunted Nemeton Monastery in Wales, England. The story is superbly visualized with well-lit CG scenes, but almost every minute of play outside these cinemas does not live up to that quality.

Koudelka is like a cross between Resident Evil and Front Mission 3. The battles are waged on three-dimensional "tactical" maps. After every single attack, you are forced to move to another block on the map (reminiscent of chess). These awkward turn-based battles become the bane of your existence.

Standard RPG features like magic points and weapon classes (swords and guns) complete the package.

If you can brave the unbearable battles, or render them "challenge-less" with a Game Shark, then you will actually uncover an interesting story involving stolen Vatican items and a depressed priest. However, that's a big "if."
