The Good
+Much of the gameplay in the first game has been expanded upon
+There are a ton of missions for you to tackle and enjoy
+A large cast of characters the game really tries to develop
+A very good soundtrack
+Despite being watered down for the PSP, the visuals are still pretty good

The Bad
-The difficulty is, at times, unbalanced
-The Voice Acting can be annoying
-There isn't much attention put into the story, and it's probably because so much of the focus was put into the gameplay. It's very easy to be distracted from the story.

---

When the first Valkyria Chronicles came out in 2008 it crept into the gaming market quietly while other games were breaking down the door. As a result, Valkyria Chronicles didn't make a big splash at first. In spite of this, however, good critical reception and word of mouth helped Valkyria Chronicles gain a small cult following and become a successful game. Enough to allow for a sequel on the PSP. Valkyria Chronicles 2 is finally here. And while it isn't quite as good as the first in some respects, it's better in others.

The second game focuses on Avan, a young man who has just discovered that his brother Leon, who was attending a military academy, has been killed. But the messenger doesn't want to tell him why. So he decides to enroll in the academy himself to find out. As Avan is discovering what has happened to his brother there is a rebel faction rising in Gallia because the Archduchess has just revealed she's a Darcsen. And Darcsen's aren't looked upon fondly by the rebels. This is bad because it means there could be a civil war soon if these rebels aren't stopped.

When it was announced that Valkyria Chronicles would be getting a sequel, I was simultaneously thrilled and intensely angry because that sequel was coming out on PSP.

I'm not as angry anymore.

There are things the PSP cannot do. It is not driven by a cell processor, and UMD cannot store as much as a bluray disc. I won't fool you by saying that this is a perfect sequel to VC 1 because it is not; the cutscenes are clearly done on a space budget.

That said, when you get down to the real game play, it's the same familiar setting with a few new tricks. What you lose in the conversion to a smaller screen with annoying dialog you gain in customization. You have more control over your squad's development and armament then you did before, which comes as an equitable trade. I wouldn't want to try VC on Hard EX on the PSP screen or with the PSP's controls, you just don't have the fine grained control to micro manage movements around terrain. But for VC2's maps it's fine.

Sometimes, being a good girlfriend means sitting on the couch and watching him play a game or playing a game together. I'm a moderate gamer; the new controls are generally more complicated than I'm willing to commit to. He is a hard core gamer. Some games are easier to watch than others, and some are easier to play. This review is not for the hard core gamer. This review is for the girlfriend (or boyfriend, who am I to judge?) that sits on the couch and watches.

This game requires a serious commitment. It timed in at close to 100 hours, and towards the end, we were so worn out that we didn't finish every mission. The game could have gone a lot quicker, we played all of the optional missions in the beginning. Towards the end, we had run out of story, and so it was getting a little tedious. Valkyria Chronicles was amazing, and we were both disappointed when this game came out for the PSP instead of the PS3. We used a PSP Component AV Cable to play the game on the TV. Unfortunately, the picture quality was not nearly as good as the original. Neither was the story. It was still a really great game, though.

The game play is similar to the first, with a few major changes. In this version, you have side stories you have to unlock for each character, ending in a mission. For each character, you also earn credits that allow you to upgrade them. This forces you to play with every character. In the original, there were characters we were more drawn to, and some characters we hardly ever played with at all.

It's a fun and has some good improvements to the gameplay (other than smaller maps), but the lack of focus on the story and dumb AI take away from the game too much. I enjoyed the first one on the PS3 a lot more.

Good
- New classes
- Research
- Lots of characters with background and depth
- Multi-player (co-op and vs)...need PS3 and adhoc party to play online

Bad
- Lackluster Story
- Too much focus on secondary characters and not enough focus on the story
- Small connected maps rather than larger maps takes away from the game
- Very dumb AI
