Better than Thor.
11 June 2014
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.
Summary: As a veteran of the Valkyrie Profile franchise I honestly wasn't surprised by how difficult the game was, but honestly the story more than makes up for it and after a while the difficulty evens out to about normal. I do suggest making more than one save file as their are multiple paths you can choose with in the game. Some of the events are more difficult to play through than others and those saves will come in handy.
Summary: Look, I'll be the first to say it; the game is excellent, a lot of fun, but there are a FEW missions which are meant to work as stopgaps just for the sake of stopgapping. Oh, you're supposed to protect that person all the way across the map from dying? Well don't count on them defending themself; your boned if you don't rush to them. And Heugot, FRIGGIN' HEUGOT. Overall it's a lot of fun, if lacking on a few missions.
Summary: I bought this game because I feel in love with the PlayStation version of "Valkyrie profile". But this version is different; in a bad way. The changes or so call "improvements" made it less fun to play. Here are my cons, I hate the fact that you have to play on the bottom screen of the 3DS; I have to look down to play (sorry never own a DS; the 3DS is my first). You don't get the freedom of moving around the map as you please.
Summary: Very nice game, though I haven't gotten very far in it yet. Fire Emblem like in battlestyle with a twist and the plot seems pretty nice. Not too fond of the sin system, but maybe I just haven't gotten the hang of it yet.
