Excerpt: Ultra hardcore role playing gamers can rejoice now that Valhalla Knights 2 has arrived. Maybe they will, and maybe they won't. The original Valhalla Knights was a fairly decent role playing game on the PSP that left a lot of the problems with the genre at the door. The RPG Master is not clear why Marvelous Entertainment USA, and XSeed Games decided to let some of that in - this time out.
Summary: Valhalla Knights 2 is making a return with more features, content and freedom of customization, allowing players to create the ultimate battle party. Additional races, job classes, weapons and monsters enhance the real-time tactical team combat.
Conclusion: Undoubtedly, there are quite a few aspects of Valhalla Knights 2 that action RPG fans will find very appealing, but it ends up being a wash when you look at the game's numerous faults. In short order these issues wear what little fun is to be had down to a dull point. There are definitely better games to play, if you're looking to dig into some deep dungeon crawling.
Pros: AI-controlled teammates are effective in battles
Cons: Combat is shallow and uninteresting, Using magic and items during real-time battle is cumbersome, Lack of quick travel options, Lame, frustrating quest system has you doing lame, frustrating quests, Absence of useful map makes it easy to get lost
Excerpt: The first Valhalla Knights was enjoyable for those looking for a simple action-RPG romp where grinding was the focus. In large part, this sequel does the same thing. This will therefore be a pretty short review.
