Valhalla Knights 2

Family Friendly Gaming
13 May 2009
  • 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.

Valhalla Knights 2

  • Summary: The PSP has another incredibly mediocre action-RPG to call its own.
  • Pros: Character creation is considerably robust; creating your own adventuring party is a nice change of pace; cutscene graphics are rather good.
  • Cons: Difficulty level is a bit much; ridiculously steep learning curve; storyline and characters are pretty cliche; too similar to the previous game.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: A few weeks ago, I wrote a review on Valhalla Knights, a game that was good in concept, but failed miserably in execution. While I appreciated the idea of a six person party dungeon crawler complete with stellar graphics, numerous sidequests, and almost infinite customization, the game ultimately fell short with its lackluster narrative, flawed camera, and run of the mill dungeon design. Now, K2 and XSEED games are back with Valhalla Knights 2. What is the verdict?

Valhalla Knights 2 (PSP) Review

  • Summary: is a continual exercise in frustration. The game isn’t broken and full of glitches. It’s full of conscious design choices that seem to purposefully create a horrible game. Tedious exploration, a boring story, and simplistic combat all come together to form a truly maddening experience. To call the game a waste of time is giving it too much credit. Wasting time isn’t necessarily bad if you have fun doing it, after all.

  • 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.

Valhalla Knights 2 Review

GameSpot
22 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Creating your own band of characters, taking them on dangerous quests, then watching them slowly become richer, more powerful, and equipped with much cooler gear can be a powerfully engrossing experience. Valhalla Knights 2 proves that it can also be extremely tedious and frustrating. This rote dungeon crawler for the PSP is not worth even a few minutes of the countless hours it will try to take from you.
  • 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.
