  • Excerpt: Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria has an impressive set of credentials to recommend it. Possessing a high-energy, yet tactically challenging combat system, an unexpected epic symphonic soundtrack, some truly impressive visuals, and a sharp, well written story, Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria is a remarkable title which should appeal to a wide variety of gamers.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Valkyrie Profile 2

Playstation Illustrated
8 January 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.

  • Excerpt: sports excellent graphics - characters are detailed and have incredible designs, attention was paid to environments and surroundings, and enemies look evil and menacing - some battles are incredibly presented due to how well the graphics were done. The battle effects are stunning as well; some of the special attacks in this game arguably push the PS2 hardware to its maximum potential.

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.

PSX Extreme
25 November 2006
  • Excerpt: , a game that fused platforming, side-scrolling, action, and ultra-deep combat RPG elements. Although some found the game's time limit to be somewhat frustrating, the beautiful artistry, great story, and intricate battle mechanic made that RPG shine with a unique luster. Since then, the title has accumulated a small yet loyal following of fans, so the long-awaited sequel was highly anticipated amongst the hardcore RPG crowd.

Game Over Online
1 November 2006
  • Excerpt: With its story rooted in Norse mythology, and gameplay differing from the most successful RPGs of its day, Valkyrie Profile was heralded as a landmark RPG when it was released in 2000. Unfortunately, the furor over next-gen hardware combined with a low print run of just 75,000 copies turned what should have been a smash hit into a sleeper, leading many (like myself) to pass up a soon-to-be forgotten classic.
