GV’s level designs are a little bit difficult and the control system isn’t perfect but players with persistence who are up...

  • 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.
  • 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

Gunvalkyrie – Review

GameCritics.com
16 April 2002
  • 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.

  • 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.
