Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3

Valkyria Chronicles is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s, Europe divided in two and ruled by the Empire and the Federation. The Empire has set its sights on invading a small neutral country called Gallia, which is situated in the middle of the two great empires. The game follows a hero named Welkin and his fellow soldiers of the Federation's 7th Platoon that are fighting against the Empire, who is intent on unifying the continent under its power. The Federation discovers that the Empire possesses a secret weapon, known as the ¿Valkyria¿- an ancient race with special powers thought to exist only in legends. With this new discovery, the fate of the Federation¿s ability to win the war and a hope for a better future hangs in the balance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty is not just skin deep November 10, 2008
By Cloud
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Over the years, my interest in RPG's had started to wane to the point where I ignored some of them simply due to the time investment. While they're great games and all, they take so long to finish and with a busy gaming schedule this year, it's hard to sink another 40 hours into one game when you could've beat 3 others and had a raucously good time on their multiplayers. However with Valkyria Chronicles, not only did it look stunning but it had a unique way of fighting and seemed to have that certain "something" where you probably don't really know what you're getting into but you want it anyway. But we warned, this isn't an RPG to be taken lightly but like a lot of things, the more you put into it then the sweeter the rewards.

Story: It's a period meant to feel like Europe in the 1930 though with a couple changes. Europe's divided in 2, The Federation and the Eastern European Imperial Alliance or just simply Empire, the latter of whom tries to do anything and everything to get what they want. What they want is ragnite, a valuable and incredibly useful resource and where it's abundant is the small country in the middle, Gallia, who has ties to neither side. But when the Empire invades and with a strange, powerful race thought only to exist in legend for a weapon, it's up to Welkin Gunther, Alicia Melchiott and several others to bring down the powerful Empire.

Graphics: The team behind this game worked on the highly-praised Skies of Arcadia for the Dreamcast and while the art style and character designs are similar, Valkyria is really in a class of its own.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off the graphics are superb. They are not just traditional cell-shaded graphics. If you capture any given frame of the rendered graphics it looks like a pencil drawing that has been colored with vibrant watercolors. Simply beautiful.

Each battle, or operation as it is called in game, begins with the assignment of units to the battlefield. Once these are placed the player phase begins. You select which unit to move from a top-down battlefield map. Upon selection the map fades to the actual battlefield and the camera zooms down to a 3rd person view of the unit. You are then free to run around (as long as action points are available) and position the unit for its attack per turn. Rinse and repeat(not always that simple) until victory is yours.

The combination of graphics, unique and solid strategic gameplay, when mixed with the solid story the game tells make for a highly satisfactory and worthwhile gaming experience...if you like strategy games. Definitely a welcome addition to the PS3's thin library of these type of titles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this game November 9, 2008
By Kevin J

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The presentation is great. The story is told from a book, and each event and battles are told through this medium. It's very fluid and it works like a history book, ensuring continuity.

And yes, the game is stunning to look at. The graphic engine is like sketches with pastel watercolors. It's very unique and the animations are beautiful.

The game lets you choose between Japanese and English tracks. Personally, I use Japanese track with English subs.

The game plays like a tactical RPG. The battle mechanism is a hybrid of real time and turn-based. It sounds strange, but it works remarkably well. I was once a skeptic, but Sega did something special here.

When battles are won, players receive experience points and money. These can be used at headquarters to level up and upgrade weapons and such. You may have up to 20 soldiers under your wing, and new ones are added throughout the game.

In addition to regular campaign, there also are skirmishes as side quests.

It's very refreshing to see an original IP with great gameplay and it looks beautiful to boot. A demo of this game is available at Playstation Network, so give it a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strategy RPG plus hardcore military January 18, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
"Valkyria Chronicles" is a fairly unorthodox game - it's got the art and general handling of "Final Fantasy Tactics" combined with the military tactics of "Full Spectrum Warrior". Possessing the feeling of an RPG despite taking place during WW2 (or a fantasy representation of it, more accurately), Valkyria Chronicles represents an exciting new game that should be liked by both strategy-RPG fans and the more hardcore military crowd.

The game takes place in "Europa" - a fantastic version of Europe, where the two dominant countries are the Federation (to the West) and the Empire (to the East). Caught between these is Gallia, a small independent nation rich with Ragnite, the world's fictional power source. The player takes the role of Lieutenant Gunther, the leader of a 20-person unit of militiamen raised to repel an invasion by the Empire.

To that end, the player must manage their squad of soldiers and drive back the enemy. From a pool of 50 soldiers (though most have to be unlocked by progressing in the game) the player selects 20 to serve as the active squad. Soldiers can come in one of five types. Scouts are light and fast, but are lightly armored and don't do much damage. Shock Troopers are more heavily armored and armed with machine guns, but are slower than scouts. Lancers are anti-tank troops armed with heavy rocket-tipped lances; they are the most heavily armored, but are only useful when dealing with enemy vehicles. Engineers are armed and armored like scouts, but trade the movement speed of that class for the ability to pass ammo out to comrades, disarm mines, and repair friendly tanks. Finally, Snipers have long-range capabilities and can take out an enemy in one hit if they're lucky, but have slow movement and low defense.
