Summary: Want a complex rpg a (la-Dragon Age) which forces you to make tough decisions and has a really great story line along with a few sex-cards thrown in for fun....well this game is definitely for you.
Excerpt: Every once in awhile a game comes along that challenges what you know about gaming. This can be on any front – storyline, gameplay, presentation, or any combination of the three – and it leaves such a lasting impression that you can easily see yourself playing it again a decade down the road, long after homogenized imitators on newer, faster, and shinier consoles take over the spotlight.
Excerpt: Their was a team at SEGA that made an RPG for the Dreamcast called Skies of Arcadia. It is loved by many, myself included. Skies of Arcadia was ported to the GameCube under the name Skies of Arcadia Legends. This only increased its popularity. Now, the creative minds behind that masterpiece have done it again with Valkyria Chronicles.
Summary: One of the most captivating rpgs that I have ever played. Something that I truly appreciate about the game is that it is often difficult to predict future events. This game is not focused entirely on loot, skills (although there's a wide variety), and other distracting (though important, I know) features. The game is all about the story. The developers intentionally put less loot into the game so that the player would not be distracted by superficial materials.
