Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth
3 March 2007
Excerpt: Recently, to the delight of us RPG fans who missed the original run, Square-Enix has released Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth for the PSP. This is an updated version of the 2000 Playstation title. Will the second time around be as good as the first? Or will Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth go down as one of the flawed ports for the PSP? The storyline in Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth is one of the most intriguing that I have encountered in quite some time.
Excerpt: If you're a serious RPG fan who happens to own a PSP, who happens to live for the thrill of a challenge, who happens to be a new comer to the VP series and who happens to appreciate the purest elements of a role-playing game such as innovation, motivation, a provocative original story line, depth, heart-wrenching audio, top-notch graphics, highly addictive game play, and a killer cast of characters then your eyes have fallen upon the right place my friend.
Excerpt: Quality portable RPGs are very very rare. On occasion, we’ll see a gem come along (for example, the original Legend of Zelda games that were released on the Game Boy) but there aren’t often any other good ones. Most likely, this is due to portable game systems not really lending themselves to RPGs – not being able to just stop and go with a portable system leads people to just play RPGs on regular consoles.
Excerpt: There have been many ports for the PSP. They generally lie into two
categories: good ports and bad ports. Now the cult favorite, Valkerie
Profile from the PSX has been ported to the handheld as well. This is
to coincide with the soon to be released sequel on the PS2. The game is
considered a rare title on the PSX as it was released in short supply.
As such, one can expect to find an original copy in the price range of
$100-300, depending on the condition and demand.
Conclusion: Valkirye Profile: Lenneth non è la Tavola della Legge in grado di fornirci la verità assoluta, ma la delizia che offre all’animo di chi gli si avvicina non può lasciare indifferenti. Apritevi al suo mondo e avrete delle risposte.
Pros: Trama ed ambientazione di alto livello, Grafica bidimensionale incantevole, Battle system “ibrido” tuttora insuperato
Cons: Cadute di stile nella conversione, Non facilissimo, Tutto in inglese
Conclusion: Vous l’aurez compris, Valkyrie Profile est un jeu mythique que tout amateur de bons RPG se doit d’essayer au moins une fois. Remercions Tri-Ace pour cette réédition du jeu sur PSP pour lui redonner une nouvelle vie et permettre à beaucoup plus de joueurs de (re)découvrir ce chef d’œuvre. Beau, dynamique, long et prenant, Valkyrie Profile Lenneth est un hymne à l’émotion, suscitée à chaque instant du jeu, qui s’impose d’emblée comme le meilleur RPG disponible sur PSP.
Pros: Des passages poignants et inoubliables, Une bande son et une durée de vie excellentes, Un gameplay simple et instinctif
Cons: Des temps de chargements un peu longuets par moments
