Summary: A wonderful 3rd person tactical turn-based RTS shooter that was - and still is - grossly underrated although it has a small but devoted fanbase. The followings are my general impression of the game: WHAT THE GAME DOES NOT DO SO WELL: - Designed to Grind: This is, by far, my strongest criticism.
Summary: It's rare to find a strategy game on a console that just works. This is one of those games that just work. The gameplay is simple and intuitive yet challenging enough to keep the intensity going.
Summary: I completed the game a few days ago and instantly felt compelled to play it through again. My gut reaction was to give it a five-star review but I hesitated, read a few of the negative reviews, grudgingly admitted they made a few good points and convinced myself to give it a four.
Great concepts, graphics, and story but unpolished.

Summary: Love the game, but some aspects just feel like they could have been done better. Not so much glitchy as unclean. Wish there was a little more variety to the missions, as most are just move as fast as you can to capture a base or kill an enemy.
Summary: I get so sick of the corny characters and predictable storyline in this game, but the gameplay itself is excellent, and that is what keeps me from throwing it in the trash. If you like action/adventure and strategy games, this might be it for you. Just skip the story scenes.
Summary: Valkria Chronicles is the game that you wish you played but never tried! It's beautiful to watch, fun to play and has a story that is well written. What else can I say that other reviews haven't? If you like RPG's, even just a little, you should own this game because it's good.
Summary: Beyond Disgaea 3, there aren't a lot of strategy RPG's for the PS3 out right now. Valkyria Chronicles changes that with something new. Rather than depend on the traditional SRPG scheme of a grid or a free-roaming isometric perspective, Valkyria Profile mixes elements of Final Fantasy 12's real-time...
Summary: This is a great tactical RPG/Strategy game with a unique combat system that works really well. The only downside is the scoring system only rewards the player for racing through the content as fast as possible.
