DescriptionSet in a world where realms of dark and light co-exist on top of each other, Queen Luscia of Haskillia is troubled by invasions of the Aklorians. Four heroes with unique abilities: the swordsman Tal, sorceress Ailish, the shape-shifting huntress Buki and the powerful Elco, combine their forces to aid the queen while they make their way through the struggle between dark and light.
You control the four characters as a team in a full 3D world with a third person view. Sudeki innovates through the use of realtime fighting scenes with combos, ranged attacks, evasion, the use of shields and Matrix-style effects including bullet-time. The characters are able to combine their forces to produce super-strike attacks. As usual, you can gain skills, spells and weapons to upgrade and add to as you go along and the plot is full of surprising interventions, betrayal and dangerous foes.

DevelopmentThe game was first titled Symphony of Light and it was in development for the Dreamcast. Around 1999, Climax announced they changed course for a release on the upcoming Playstation 2. It would allow for four players to participate simultaneously. As the title clashed with an existing game series, ‘Suteki’ was suggested, being the Japanese for 'beautiful, cool, gorgeous'. In the end, it became Sudeki.
It's also funny to know that if you would translate the English word 'steak' into a Japanese katakana word through the linguistic rules, you end up with 'suteki' as well.
InaccuraciesIn Transentia, in the Research Center Dungeon, The party splits up. When Ailish leaves she is wearing her level 3 armor. Yet if you look at her after she leaves, you will notice she is wearing her level 1 armor. And since it is impossible not to have her third level armor and you cannot not re-equip lower level stuff this is clearly a mistake.
IntroTom Baker does the voice-acting for the opening FMV sequence (for which he is uncredited in the game).
