Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth (PSP)

 

Very few people have played the original Valkyrie Profile, but those who have are usually quite vocal about their love of it. Then there are collectors who regularly buy and sell used copies of the game for $100 or more. The good news is that now you...

Lastly, for Valkyrie Profile veterans is there any reason for them to spend another 39.99 for the same game? Sadly, no. While the game reveals a slight connection with the upcoming Valkyrie Profile: Silmeria, new FMVs, and character portraits,...

Despite some minor problems, it's easily the best RPG on the PSP.

Also, it'd be neat if there was a way to see the properties of an artifact before deciding to send it up or hold on to it. Without any way to tell how useful an artifact may or may not be when the game prompts the player to make the decision, it's hard...

Yet another RPG falls victim to bad port syndrome.

One of Sony's biggest fears when they launched their first handheld platform about 18 months ago, the PlayStation Portable, was that most developers would take the easy route and simply port over old PSone titles to the PSP and not produce any...

Extremely faithful translation of the PSone hit to PSP ; A long, epic RPG, brimming with plot, characters, game play and enemies to spare ; All cinemas and most of the voice acting arrive on PSP fully intact

Sprites don't animate well when the action gets intense. Blur City ; Controls are not fine-tuned for the platforming segments ; Save points are few and far between

While not quite up there with the likes of GBA's Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth is by far the best RPG ever to grace the PSP platform!

During the end of the PlayStation's life, a lot of great games were released with little attention paid to them due to the limited print number for the games, the launch of the PlayStation 2, or both. Valkyrie Profile fit, unfortunately enough, into...

Even with these rough edges, however, Lenneth is perhaps the best RPG currently available on the PSP. If you already have a copy of the PlayStation original, then the new CG cutscenes won't give you any reason to buy the same game all over again....

Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth Review

 

Quality portable RPGs are very very rare. On occasion, we'll see a gem come along (for example, the original Legend of Zelda games that were released on the Game Boy) but there aren't often any other good ones. Most likely, this is due to portable game...

Overall, Valkyrie Profile Lenneth really doesn’t bring anything new to the table if you’ve played the original. If you missed the game the first time or sold off your copy, though, I’d highly recommend picking this one up. For the cost of the...

Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth is the port of the original Valkyrie Profile, which was on the Sony PlayStation. Thus, it is the same game as the PlayStation version, with a few ...

Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth features an excellent story, well developed characters, and a myriad of weaponry and armor to choose from. Yet the game falls short elsewhere, such as a lack of dungeons in the final half of the game compared to the first, and...

Valkyrie Profile has always held a special place in my heart. It took a friend to turn me on to it in the first place, but once he did, I was sold, now and forever. In fact I've stated numerous times that if Valkyrie Profile or Suikoden made it to the...

At the end of the day, you’ve got a fairly good port of a PS1 title with a few new bells and whistles which are greatly appreciated, but are left with a few old nagging issues.

Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth

 

Aside from the minor annoyance of repetitive dialogue, there's hardly a thing to dislike about Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, Square Enix's remake of the PlayStation's cult hit.

After a couple dozen battles that invariably begin with Valkyrie saying, "To my side, my noble Einherjar!" you'll be wishing for a mute button; that's a shame, because aside from the minor annoyance of repetitive dialogue, there's hardly a thing to...

Product Specifications

In a poor town, a young girl flees from home with a childhood love upon discovering that her parents have sold her into slavery. The two wind through dark mountain passes until they reach a meadow of poisonous flora. Her mind filled with memories of a difficult past, the girl chooses to end her life peacefully among the weeping lilies. The boy holds the love of his life in his arms as she passes away. Years later, Asgard, the realm of the gods, remains locked in an eternal struggle between the benevolent Aesir and the demonic Vanir. With the end of the world approaching, Odin, lord of Asgard, summons Lenneth Valkyrie to his side. But who is Valkyrie, and why does she resemble a young silver-haired girl who died tragically years ago?
