Excerpt: Valhalla Knights on the Playstation Portable was a bit of a surprise for the RPG Master. Starting the game is like trying to climb a cliff, or walking through waist high water. The difficulty seemed tweaked a lot against the player.
Excerpt: Valhalla Knights is a game set in a small town beset by a curse. The castle of Paladi has been put under an evil spell, causing it to fill to the brim with all sorts of nasty monsters. So what's a young hero to do? Clearly, there's nothing for it but to clear the place out and save the town.
