Gunvalkyrie Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: I feel somewhat torn when it comes to this game. I love the game play that Sega and Smilebit have incorporated. I feel it is truly a step up for all 3rd person shooters out on the console market today. I can really put my skills and abilities to the test to become a true GV master. United with graphically pleasing 3D models and rendering, these make for some very attractive rudiments. This brings me to my juncture.

Gunvalkyrie – Review

GameCritics.com
2 September 2004
  • Excerpt: The shooter is such a straightforward, often vacuous genre that its conventions seem doomed to be endlessly recycled. Change the story, change the guns, change the bad guys, but its still just point-and-shoot. As the genre has slowly and sporadically evolved through advances in artificial intelligence, environmental interaction, and narrative immersion, the mechanics themselves have remained virtually unchanged.

Gunvalkyrie Review

GameSpot
25 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Gunvalkyrie is the latest Xbox title from Smilebit, the Sega subsidiary responsible for the Jet Set Radio series. The game puts you in the role of two jetpack-toting warriors with large cannons, but most of the game is focused less on blasting enemies and more on platform jumping and figuring out how to get around the game's unforgiving terrain.

Expert Review

The Laser
31 May 2004
  • Excerpt: Sega’s Gunvalkyrie is a highly-polished title that showcases the power of the Xbox. This isn’t a Halo clone because its the innovative jump-boost controls give it a unique feel. GV’s level designs are a little bit difficult and the control system isn’t perfect but players with persistence who are up to the challenge will find some challenging and undeniably large level designs.

Into Liquid Sky
27 May 2004
  • Excerpt: While the story for Gunvalkyrie really is secondary to the gameplay, the alternative history vein that is introduced as the backstory is well thought out, giving an additional flavor to the game. At the core of the story is a Dr. Hebble, a mysterious scientist that turns up missing. As a member of a mercenary group, you must find out clues to his whereabouts.
  • Pros: Lots of 3D shooter action, Well crafted levels, Difficult enough for seasoned gamers
  • Cons: Control scheme takes time to learn and master, Casual gamers may be turned off by difficulty

  • Excerpt: GunValkyrie is Smilebit’s bastard child. Both Panzer Dragoon and Jet Set Radio Future, Smilebit’s other two Xbox offerings, have received critical acclaim nearly unanimously across video game review websites and magazines, but GunValkyrie’s release was received with a decidedly less enthusiastic reaction from the overall media.
