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 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: 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: 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.
Summary: After having played Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth not too long ago, I decided to purchase the prequel This game is on par with the first one, there are several different things, First, the way of "Freezing" the enemy has changed, in this game, the first "photon" you shoot (Used to be crystals) halts the enemy like in the last, but if you shoot a second one you teleport with the enemy. This helps give the game harder puzzles to solve.
Summary: Story-wise Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria is a prequel to Valkyrie Profile Lenneth. The game has beautiful backgrounds rendered using a 3D engine, yet it plays like a 2D platformer. You are able to control Alicia in 2D. You can run left/right, jump and throw phozons (these freeze your enemies, allowing you to avoid conflict). Throughout the game Alicia will meet many different characters who will join her party.
Summary: I must say I awaited this title eagerly. Though it is not what I expected, it still is an excellent game. Levelling up is a bit monotonous and time consuming. This is the only problem I have with this game, because I am the type of player who loves to level up and make sure I am just a bit higher level than the upcoming boss. Though I have the patience to level up in games, this one takes considerably longer than most. The game is beautifully rendered!
