Must Own game!!
20 October 2014
Summary: i a big fan of valkyrie profile games i played the ps2 version and really like this DS version both really good games. the game play is a puzzle you have to figure out on your own but of course we have the internet and walkthroughs video or website
Summary: Not the best in the series. You start off playing the bad guy (and I think it is pretty obvious you're a bad guy). Battles I thought were kinda hard without using your evil "power of the plume" to sacrifice your own party members to become super powerful. It's like Fire Emblem where you can't go to a map to level up the way you can in Final Fantasy Tactics. There are a few "side missions" though and I think three different endings.
Summary: During the last decade, it became somewhat common for RPG series to produce tactical spinoffs, beginning with Final Fantasy Tactics and its successors. Even non-RPG series such as Onimusha would follow suit, although late in the decade came Megami Tensei's tactical spinoff Devil Survivor and Valkyrie Profile's, entitled Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume.
Summary: I really like the Valkyrie Profile's take on Norse mythology. Marvel's Thor movies are eh, and the comics are hit and miss to me. This game is the first not playing as a Valkyrie, and it is for games what the Star Trek TNG episode (not the movie) "First Contact" does. This flips the perspective from you playing as the Gods to the mere mortals below, with a touch of realism. The characters are believable, and all have Shakespeare like tragic flaws.
