Shadow Hearts: Covenant

The Judgement Ring: The outcome of your characters' movements and actions are decided by the Judgement Ring, when attacking, using an ability, or completing a task. Remember, timing is everything. Your attack commands will only get executed if you press the X Button the instant that the Ring Cursor appears over a colored area:
Hit Areas: Hit Areas are yellow or red zones within the Judgement Ring that appear when you choose an attack command.
Strike Areas: A Strike Area is a small red zone at the end of a yellow Attack Area. If you press the X Button as the cursor passes through a Strike Area, it will increase the damage an attack inflicts.
Step Areas: A Step Area is a green zone in the Judgement Ring that comes up when you use a Special Ability. Your Special Ability command will not work if you don't hit the green Step Area.
Modulate Areas: A Modulate Area is a blue zone that appears in the Judgement Ring when you use a Special Ability. The farther into the blue zone you hit the X Button, the more powerful the Special Ability.
