Summary: This is a really good game- much better than you might think for a psp game. I know some don't fully appreciate psp games so much but I personally liked quite a few. This game though is in a category of its own and it's definitely worth buying. The characters are what makes this game great. Their personality is definitely more than most.
Summary: Valkyria chronicles 2 is a bit a disappointment, the game gets great review and stuff like this but..... The story lacking, the mission based nature really hurts the plot, but the plot itself is nothing special, standard japanese fare. Character: the most stereotyped japanese anime character ever! what a disappointment, if only a traditional jrpg get released with character like these, sure get killed by critic reviews graphic and presentation: menu and artwork!
Summary: Really fun play, a little storyline here and there. A whole new "job" system, get job requirements and upgrade your units. Must buy! Only thing I didn't like is, you could only use 6 units per mission. But I guess that's how the game works.
Summary: Valkyria Chronicles II is one of the most amazing strategy games I've ever played. And I've been playing the genre since ye olde days of X-COM and Shining Force. VCII is simply a wonderful evolution of the genre, thanks to its innovative BLiTZ (Battle of Live Tactical Zones) combat system. This method of turn based initiative versus real time execution reveals new stratagems that continuously improve in subtle ways the longer you play.
Summary: Confession time: I never played the first Valkyria Chronicles . To many this might make my opinion of the second iteration irrelevant, but it does give me an unbiased opinion on this game. Many of us in the west didn’t play either game of the series, and the fact that Valkyria Chronicles 2 was released only on PSP did not improve the sales figures. Although this move of consoles was a bit frustrating to some fans, it is not irrational.
Summary: many people will say that Valkyria Chronicles 2 is "bad" because of the shift from the more serious atmosphere of the original to the less serious anime-highschool setting of the sequel. I found the characters to be lovable and unique, not to mention the growth system that rewards the player for using a certain character by unlocking personality traits that increase team synergy and making them more relatable.
Summary: The PSP version stays true to the series and adds some new content like class upgrades, more research options, more tank parts. The story is decent, but nothing amazing or at least compared to the original. The maps are repeated alot and are broken up in zones, which takes away from the game in my opinion. The PS3 version had unique maps for each level and were bigger. For a PSP version my expectations were lower and I think they did a good enough job for 4 stars.
The sequel to one of the greatest Turn Based strategy games ever made

Summary: When Nintendo started to slack on fire emblem, I happened to find the original Valkyrian Chronicles for Ps3. That game was epic , the only downside is that Sega couldn't pack the massive game of Valkrian Chronicles PS3 onto the PSP . What was a large scale war game( with a FAR better story line, the first one dealt with so many complex issues, I'll just say if you have a solid grasp of world history you'll enjoy it more .
