Summary: I cannot recommend this game to anybody (unless I want to see that person throw a fit). The only thing this game has going for it is its visuals. That's why I gave it a 2 instead of 1. The music is lousy and was so repetitive I had to turn the music volume way down just to keep from getting a headache. The story is as wierd as any other Japaneese anime of late.
Summary: I kind of like "Gun Valkyrie", but after watching a number of friends and especially kids play it, I have to warn against spending $ on it. Two reasons: 1. The controls for flying/jumping are over-complex, and several missions cannot be completed without this move, so you get stuck, and ultimately bored. 2.
Summary: I was pretty excited to play this game so I combed our local rental places until I found it. After half an hour my opionion could be summed up as "I am so glad I didn't buy this game". The controls are a little difficult but my real problem with the game is that it just isn't fun. The level objectives are "kill all of the enemy units" or "find item x" and you find that you spend an awfull lot of time combing the map to find that one guy that you missed. Very boring.

Summary: This very arcade-like game gets it's inspiration from Sega's own classic Space Harrier and it's story line directly from the animated 1990's Giant Robo series. A strange doctor discovers a new power source that radically advances society but mysteriously disappears thereafter. This review was re-written after many hours of gameplay and will highlight some of the frustration experienced five or six levels into the game.
Summary: Yet another game I regret buying for the Xbox system. The controls to this game are horrible. Gun Valkyrie has great graphics, but the controls and background music just plain bites the big one. I dont know what Microsoft is trying to pull on the masses, perhaps a secret poll to see just how many people out there like to waste their money on...systems. So far all I play on my Xbox are Halo & Max Payne, thats it...
