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.
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?
Conclusion: With more than 50 hours worth of gameplay, more than 245 different monster types, and over 10,000 different combinations, I’m sure there is something to justify playing VK2 more than once. As you progress through the game, new job classes (Enchanter, Guard, and Monk) and races (Akatoki, Canine) are available to utilize, which helps to keep battles interesting and your character a force to be reckoned with.
