Square's Norse RPG May Be Falling Out Of Favor

  • Conclusion: Concept: Focus on the mortals instead of the gods in a grid-based Valkyrie Profile spin-off Graphics: Good character art, though the in-battle sprites are nothing special Sound: The soundtrack is occasionally excellent, but there are plenty of generic tunes Playability: Though the controls are easy to learn, poor balancing makes each fight hit-and-miss Entertainment: Some great ideas are overshadowed by the cumbersome mechanics Replay: Moderate

  • Summary: I like many things about Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume, and one thing drives me crazy. Horrendous misbalancing moves the tactical action out of the realm of acceptable challenge and into the arena of absurdity. After the first few hours of play, battles demand a near-perfect run to complete, usually met only after numerous trial and error attempts. Further, side quests that allow players to increase skill levels to confront these hefty challenges are rare.

Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume – Staff Review

RandomNPC
11 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume represents a bit of a step back in time for the series. Where Valkyrie Profile: Silmeria led the series in a more optimistic direction, Covenant of the Plume returns to the tragedy and gloom of the first game in the series, choosing the theme of sacrifice in contrast to Silmeria ‘s hope.
