The game has great production values, one of the best looking titles for the PS2. It was made to make the best use of the console's capabilities but also has great story and soundtrack, orchestral for the cutscenes and industrial rock for the combat. A very interesting mix. Aside from some glitches, there's nothing wrong with this game. Save your progress often so if you encounter a glitch you don't have to backtrack a lot.

The game is nice, but difficult to appreciate with the all too loud (and horrible) music going on in the "background". There's no volume adjustment or turning it off. I can't remember much else about the game anymore, but it had a nice fluffy feel to it in the gothic dark fantasy sense.

Update: Either there's more than one version out there or I couldn't figure out the options menu originally as I've since found music volume control (also I sold my original copy and later acquired another) . The volumes are still all over the place regardless of the control, though.

Official description
Meet the heroine for the next millennium. Jen Tate is a modern-day girl who faces insurmountable challenges both within herself and the world around her. She's on a journey of self-discovery and self-recovery. A journey that will change the balance of her soul and the balance of world order. Along the way, she has a faithful guardian named Scree, a stone gargoyle - who will help her understand the ways of a foreign world trapped in Oblivion.

auto-regen - only in human form, the others need to drain life energy from other source (though usually this is handled by Scree who then channels it to Jen).

--- notes
Scree can climb stonework walls, should perhaps be categorized as ladders (shrubbery-type) due to their rarity.
