Summary: This game is a very good game, it's challenging enough to keep you playing and trying to accomplish everything there is to do, the game is played in a sidescrolling view all except for the battling sequences but over all my opinion of the game was very good and its a game i'd play through all over again.
Well made but the downside is that it is in 2D and it can be a little hard

Summary: This is a very well made j-rpg,better tahn most so it's very beautiful. However i am not so thrilled abaout it being in 2D (battles in 3D)(you have to look at everything sideways). I have not played so far yet but i like it to where i'm at though.
Summary: The graphics are out of this world great, great story line, lots of fun to play, the game is anemic in that it doesn't clearly state all objectives, and the only real fault that knocks this game down from excellent to good is that it is a half real time, half turn taking game.
Summary: I ordered the first installment from ebay. It was far cheaper back then. The first disc would freeze the game at the end of the first battle, and when I wrote the guy I ordered it from all he could tell me was that I had to get an original playstation. So I had to obtain a backup copy and play it through other means. The Voice acting seems to be toned down a bit from the first. One can hear it in the way Arngrim talks.
Summary: The game is pretty entertaining and the battle system is intriguing though I find myself playing it just to finish it. This is because I think the story is lackluster and the characters awfully superficial, but since it's a game, I try not to expect too much. In sum, it's a good game for something to do when bored, but I don't think I would replay it. Though, trying to get different einherjar is tempting ...
Summary: i like it when a game reinvents an old system. Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth created a RPG fighting system which was based on timing and over killing your opponents. Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria reuses the system but adds the aspect of area. instead of having a linear fight, you are having a 3-D fight where you can move to your opponents side or back during the fight. VP2 now uses "final fantasy" style of graphics (ie ffx or x2) verses the more hand-drawn look from VP1.
Summary: So yeah, traveling the word is two-dimensional. And yeah, the world map is broken up, making travel a pain sometimes. No new game plus, just harder to clear each time. Somewhat boring and repetitive battle system. Same enemies repeatedly, re-skinned. But, you know what? This game is awesome, anyway.
Summary: Challenge to play and very fun to. Only thing I dislike about it is the way it is controlled, you are very limited on the movements you can make while walking around. Can only walk in the direction set for you to go, can't explore anything around you!..Bummer hunh?
Summary: There's certainly a lot to do in Valkyrie Profile 2. Although the meat of the gameplay is kept to quite a strict path (and not a very long one at that), the level of depth and customization is immense. It's quite a challenging game simply because there is so much to take in. But if you are the type who loves menus, equipment and stats, then you're going to go cross-eyed with excitment at this game, and I recommend you take the plunge immediately.
Summary: This game is quite innovative in it's style. I was not sure what to expect when I saw it described as a side-scrolling RPG, but was pleasantly surprised to find how fun it was to play this unique game. It does have a learning curve when it comes to learning and mastering its real time battle system, which is similar to Final Fantasy XII's. I would recommend it for older teenagers and above, because it can be difficult to master and may frustrate younger gamers.
