Players of the original often express their love affair with this game and it isn't entirely hard to see why. Our main hero, Lenneth, is a Valkyrie. Lenneth serves Odin, the leader of the Gods. In the world of Asgard, a sacred war has broken out among the Gods. Odin needs brave souls from humans to form an army to fight. It's Lenneth's job to go to the mortal world of Midgard and find the brave souls of humans to send to Odin.
The game spans eight chapters to get you through the game. There is a time limit, however. Everything you do from resting to trumping through dungeons takes time. If you're feeling very brave and gutless, you could rest for all eight chapters and then take on the final boss. Your average gamer, however, doesn't want to do that, and so you just might opt to go and find those souls. You can recruit up to fifteen souls (despite that you probably won't need all fifteen), and only three can enter battle at a time with Lenneth.
As you crawl through dungeons, you'll get the feel of playing some kind of action/adventure game.Read more ›
To help the reader find just what they are looking for I will separate this review into 5 parts: Graphics, Storyline, Battle system, originality, and audio.
The new CG sequences that have been added to VP: Lenneth are absolutely stunning. They occur quite frequently as well, and you can watch each one of them whenever you want from the main screen! The character sprites are also highly detailed as well as the environments and enemies.
Valkyrie Profile's plot is a welcome entry in the genre in that it is a fresh idea. Just a summary of the game proves that point (you play as Lenneth, a valkyrie who Odin has charged with collecting the dead to become Einjeriar in the battle of Ragnarok) The entire game is working up to one moment at the end of time, and Lenneth must act quickly to collect as many souls as possible. This makes things all the more interesting by adding time limits to the game. Don't worry, there's more than enough time to do it all, you just have to be tactical in your approach. Also, with so many different characters it is usually hard to develop each one of them, i.e. Radiata Stories, but Tri-Ace does an excellent job of letting the player connect on an entirely new level with each one.
VP: Lenneth also houses a unique battle system that is easy to learn, but takes the entire game to master.Read more ›
Well, we are talking about a PS1 port. So don't expect much here. But the new CGs are nice, and even the old PS1 sprites are actually pretty nicely animated. And the super/special moves (PWS) are rather nice, too.
The dialoguing is very annoying at first. It's very much apparent the moment you start up the game, when you have to go through the prologue. Once you get used to it, it's not bad. The sound effects seem a bit primitive too, but again, this is a rather old game. Btw, as the fans will quickly note, the game uses the same voice actors as Pokemon. :D
It's an interesting mix of platforming, puzzles, turn based and real time combat. Personally, I did not enjoy the platforming part. That genera was never my favorite, and the PSP's diagonal insensitivity makes some of the jumps a pain to do. The combat is rather fun and original. But after about mid game, your characters are so over-leveled and over-equipped, almost all of the battles except for a few boss battles become trivial.
There's a lot to do here. And the chances are, that on your first game, you've missed out the "A" ending, the true ending. The standard "B" ending is pretty mundane. And there are quite a few characters in the game, and you probably will not get to explore all of them until you replay the game. Personally, I'm a story driven player, so once I know the plot, I have little interest in replaying the game, but I think many players don't mind going through the story again- and for such players, the replay value should be fairly high.
A most excellent story.Read more ›
