  • Conclusion: The battle system is equally appealing. Once engaged, your party can either split or fight as a team. The party is encircled within rings and the enemies on individual grids. The idea is to avoid the grids (or move in when they’re faded) and snare the opposition within your range. Once targeted, each button represents an attack. Let the fray begin.

Review – Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria

videolamer
6 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Despite the bizarre plot twists at the end, Silmeria is a solid RPG – with a reasonably involved storyline and a bit of the “divine tragedy” flavor to it. It has a couple of minor annoyances, but they don’t get in the way of what is otherwise a good experience. Silmeria is yet another decent PS2 RPG – while it may not be a particular standout, it has an enjoyable story and a pretty fun battle system.

  • Excerpt: I’d take Odin, Valkyrie and the magnificence of Valhalla over typical RPG fare any day. Those whiney teens, hapless females and silly demons just can’t compete with Norse mythology. Or maybe it’s just because I’ve played way too many RPGs with those familiar archetypes. Of course, it takes more than all the awesome things mentioned in Manowar lyrics to make a good game. Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria gets it all done.

Valkyrie Profile 2

Playstation Illustrated
26 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Ages ago, I played a game called Valkyrie Profile on the PS1. It had a mix of unique gameplay elements and a great, tragic storyline. It deserved its cult standing. With that, I was excited to see what the sequel (or prequel as it were) had in store. Valkyrie Profile 2 opens with a slick CG movie that provides just enough questions to keep you going. The rest of the game relies mostly on in-game rendered cinematics to progress the story.

Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria (PS2) Review

  • Summary: Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria is a beautiful game with a rich battle system to back it up. Some of the additions and subtractions may be a little hard to swallow (especially for fans of the original), that does not mean this game is any less excellent. It holds up well to the original and a great addition to the series.

Expert Review

13 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria is resigned to the same fate that has befallen Chrono Cross on message boards across the internet. Silmeria takes bits of the original Valkyrie Profile, like the action-oriented battle system and recruitment of Einherjar, and fuses it with a much more accessible linear focus.
