Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria (PlayStation 2)

 

You might not remember the original Valkyrie Profile, a fairly obscure but well-liked role-playing game for the PlayStation, which was recently ported to the PSP as Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth. The game defied a lot of the conventions of Japanese RPGs,...

The sound swings gently back and forth between classically themed tracks and some pretty decent voice acting. Each town and city has its own soothing or light and lively melody, and the dungeons and other battle areas resound with everything from...

That huge emphasis on the complexity also takes away from both the flow of the game and the cohesiveness of the story. Usually, our motto is, the more depth, the better, but Square-Enix may have overdone this one just a bit. It can really be a...

Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria (PS2) Review

 

tri-Ace and Square-Enix gives us a return trip to Midgard in this sequal/prequal to the 2000's Valkyrie Profile.

Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria is a beautiful game with a rich battle system to back it up. Some of the additions and subtractions may be a little hard to swallow (especially for fans of the original), that does not mean this game is any less excellent....

Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria

 

Long before the PSP re-release, I was there for Enix's original release of Valkyrie Profile on PSone. The title came out after Enix was re-emerging after a long US absence, and had already had success in the US on PSone with Star Ocean: Second Story,...

Eye candy that’s good enough to stand alongside Final Fantasy XII and Elder Scrolls Oblivion ; Side-scrolling world brings a breath of “something different” to the table ; While the Einjarhar are deemphasized, VP2 still tells a deeply affecting story

While Silmeria has a great story, the tale would have been more epic had the Einjarhar been fleshed out more ; The series really should consider going full 3D next time out

A solid contender for a spot in the Top 3 RPGs of 2006, Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria is a breath of fresh air in a world of play-alike RPGs.

Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria Review for the PS2

 

Not her best side.

Quick, fun, and smart battle system; Good delivery on an interesting storyline; Lots of items to break off of enemies

That you won't need; Skill building is a guessing game; Linear to a fault; Lacks a lot of features the original had

Most look at crazy people with pitying eyes, quietly saying to themselves, "Dear me, look at that poor thing…coating himself in butter." Others believe they should be studied, cared for, or otherwise handled with some level of political correctness....

An RPG as inventive and beautiful as it is challenging and complex.

Undeniably impressive visuals; outstanding battles; deep and legitimately challenging

Storyline lacks real gravity; some aspects feel overcomplicated; steep spikes in difficulty

Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria

 

With its story rooted in Norse mythology, and gameplay differing from the most successful RPGs of its day, Valkyrie Profile was heralded as a landmark RPG when it was released in 2000. Unfortunately, the furor over next-gen hardware combined with a low...

When it's all over, Valkyrie Profile 2 takes players on a massive journey spanning the heavens and Earth - and does it with gusto. Even with the voice work and camera problems dragging it down, this is still the most enjoyable traditional RPG I've...

Consumer review by:

The game has many beautiful backgrounds.

 

Valkyrie profile is a good game to have.It is combination of 2d and 3d. The best thing for me about the vp silmeria is the gameplay, the plot, the background music and scenery. This game also features dolby digital pro logic like the other games and...

What I like about vp silmeria is the background music especially the scenery. In my point of view it lets you see the wonderful adventures in Norse mythology

the bad thing is that it is a tough game for beginners. When I first play this game I had a hard time beating the bosses, it gets tougher when their health is low especially when your not prepared

Product Specifications

Hundreds of years before Lenneth's tale, another saga lies concealed by the gods. The valkyrie Silmeria once served Odin loyally, but after an incident ignited a conflict between them, Odin forcefully reincarnated her as a human. The human soul that would carry her spirit was that of Alicia, Princess of Dipan. Ordinarily, Silmeria's consciousness would have been sealed, her spirit dormant until she was next summoned... However, the forced transmigration causes Silmeria's spirit to awaken within Alicia, leaving two souls to inhabit a single body. The spirit that should have been sealed has awakened - a situation Odin will not ignore for long.
