Valkyria Chronicles (PlayStation 3)

 

You haven't played anything quite like Valkyria Chronicles. At first, you might think this is due to its striking visual design, but this is a case when beauty isn't just skin deep. By usurping elements of third-person shooters, it offers tactical...

I always root for the underdog. Whenever I see a fight, I place my bet on the little guy. As much as I enjoy the brutal, naked truth shown in nature programs, I always cheer for the prey. That was the first thing Sega did right with Valkyria...

Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)

 

I had serious doubts about Valkyria Chronicles in the game's opening moments. In one of the first scenes the game's protagonist, Welkin Gunther, finds himself accosted by Alicia Melchiot -- a cute but obnoxious junior fascist hell-bent on protecting...

Something the PlayStation consoles are known for is the amazing selection of RPGs, but sadly, Sony?s latest console, the PlayStation 3, has been lacking in the RPG department. Many PS3 owners are dying for some RPG action, but luckily Sega WOW, makers...

Valkyria Chronicles is the best RPG I have played since Dragon Quest VIII. While there have been many contenders for this title in recent years–Kingdom Hearts II, Final Fantasy XII, and Oblivion all come to mind–this Sega-produced RPG is destined to...

Valkyria Chronicles shatters all strategy RPG conventions. Taking the best from the genre in terms of tactical warfare and combining it with a brilliant, fast-paced first-person element makes every battle seem fresh, and the challenge fierce. While I...

Beautiful graphics, an engaging story, and unique genre-redefining gameplay make Valkyria Chronicles the top RPG available on Sony's new machine.

Beautiful graphics, an engaging story, and unique genre-redefining gameplay

Long cutscenes, and some multi-hour battles

I�m sure many of you saw the trailer for Valkyria Chronicles during this year's E3, and thought �Well it looks pretty, but I bet it�ll suck or be gimmicky.� I thought that very thing; I even declined a chance to play it behind closed doors with...

Valkyria Chronicles Review for the PS3

 

Sega knocks it out of the Reich.

Absolutely elegant, gorgeous presentation; Unique approach to RPG strategy; Fleshed-out, mangled-mythos if-world; Engaging story; Mostly good voicework

Hit-and-miss AI; Some annoyingly inconsistent mechanics

Expert review by:

Valkyria Chronicles

 

Strong graphics and gameplay aside, the game has an epic score. Composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy XII and Tactics) the game is accompanied by a Wagnerian score which suits the game perfectly. While there aren't too many memorable songs, the...

War is tragic. War is frightening. But in this case, war is also beautiful.

Breathtaking hand-painted visual style; interesting story and characters; moving soundtrack

Some combat mechanics don't make sense or don't work very well

Product Specifications

In 1930s Europa, tensions rise to an all-time high between the continent's two distinct military powers - the Empire and the Federation. In the struggle for ultimate supremacy, the Second Europa War (E.W.II) erupts, and Gallia, the small independent nation situated between the two super powers, now faces attack. The Empire's Imperial Army is first to strike Gallia, forcing the young lieutenant Welkin Gunther to pull back his small platoon. As the invading forces charge toward the capital city, Welkin discovers that not only are they outmatched in scale and weaponry, but the enemy army also has Valkyria, an unusually powerful race, in their ranks. As the war rages, the capital city is about to fall to the enemy, but Welkin's unique battle strategies bring hope to his homeland... There may be a chance for Gallia after all. This is Welkin's story.
