(PlayStation 3 Review) Valkyria Chronicles

The Entertainment Depot
14 March 2014
  • Summary: Valkyria Chronicles is both impressive and strikingly flawed. Many of its problems are the result of a game finding its bearings while dealing with numerous modifiers and variables in an overworked combat engine. The game ends up being infuriating and exciting, coming across as both polished and not quite done. Despite its shortcomings, however, it still shines. You won’t find anything else like it on the PlayStation 3, and I doubt you will for some time to come.

  • Excerpt: I always root for the underdog. Whenever I see a fight, I place my bet on the little guy. As much as I enjoy the brutal, naked truth shown in nature programs, I always cheer for the prey. That was the first thing Sega did right with Valkyria Chronicles . They wisely walked the line between empowerment and disadvantage by giving you a small but capable militia, a tiny fraction of a meager military, to command against an imperial army.

Valkyria Chronicles

  • Conclusion: But despite the galling AI, for me, Valkyria Chronicles is one of the best games released this year, which was a pleasant surprise. Whether you’re usually a fan of SRPG’s or not it is packed full of so much charm, memorable moments and believable, loveable characters, backed up by a touching story, I would recommend you to go out and buy it now. No seriously, do it.

Valkyria Chronicles Accessibility Review

  • Excerpt: Visuals Valkyria Chronicles has a bright, lighthearted Japanese art style despite being a game about war, which makes it easy to track what is going on in the environment around you. The vast majority of the maps and text boxes are very easy to read, with high contrast between the text and the background as well as relatively large font (though the font size is not adjustable).

The King of Fighters XIII

Hooked Gamers
5 April 2011
  • Conclusion: As much as I am sure long-time fans of the King of Fighters series will love this new and revamped entry and the wealth of content it contains, I cannot recommend it to anyone but said die-hard fans. A convoluted mess of a story combined with confusingly complex controls, a large but rather forgettable roster of fighters, and a difficulty curve that borders on sadistic will quickly overshadow the game’s few redeeming features.
  • Pros: Loads of content for long-time fans to sink their teeth into including a very stable and well-designed online multiplayer setup.
  • Cons: Punishing difficulty and confusing story are big turn-offs for casual gamers.

Valkyria Chronicles PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Valkyria Chronicles fits snugly into the strategy genre, but nonetheless it’s hardly your regular chess like thinking mans game. It requires the forethought of chess, but has the intensity of a shooter, whilst the beautiful watercolour style visuals further give the game its own identity. Being a strategy RPG, Valkyria Chronicles has quite a substantial tale to tell and it’s quite a story.

Valkyria Chronicles: Challenges from Team Edy (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
19 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Since this is a review of a downloadable episode (hereafter referred to as DLC), I am going to quickly define exactly what each score pertains to. Presentation will be mostly dependent on story, voice acting, and use of already established visual presentation. Gameplay is dependent on the amount of strategy used in the missions provided. Value is based on the episode’s average playtime, price of the DLC, and variety of gameplay in the episode.

Sony's New Strategy Title Is Highly Decorated

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Direct your troops in a simultaneously traditional and innovative strategy game Graphics: Incredibly stylish. It's amazing how a few filters can make standard anime look like a painting in motion Sound: Occasionally (but not frequently) solid voice work. The music gets repetitive quickly Playability: The interface could use some streamlining, and you don't get certain bits of key data in combat Entertainment: Cheering isn't something I normally do in strategy...
