Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)
5 Star Review   By member shrike424242 - Nov 11, 2008   

Strengths: Amazing art style and graphics, innovative gameplay style, fantastic music,

Weakness: None apparent

Valkyria Chronicles for the PS3 is a strategy-RPG hybrid game set in a parallel Europe set in the 1930's. The main characters are in a fight against an invading force from another country, and they work to try and repel the invaders. The game works with a balance of movement versus combat actions over the course of a day, where there's new movement and combat actions to be done. The game looks amazing, with rich colorful graphics that look like animation, and the music and sounds are equally as good. RPG, action and strategy fans should all take a look at this game.

Great PS3 Exclusive
5 Star Review   By member mirado182 - Nov 11, 2008   

Strengths: Looks amazing and plays great

Weakness: None, unless you don't like SRPGS

This game is amazing to look at as it's almost like watching an anime come to life. Battles occur like an SRPG with each side taking turns to attack. You can attack more than once with the same character with the given amount of turns you get, but they can move less and less farther each time if you do. This encourages you to use others, at least until the next "day" which gives you more turns. The story is adequate and enough to keep you playing. You'll find a good mix of strategy, role-playing, and action in this title.

Valkyria Chronicles
5 Star Review   By member eau697 - Nov 10, 2008   

Strengths: Graphics, gameplay

Valkyria Chronicles is probably the best tactics game on the Playstation 3, and no doubt one of the best PS3 games. It is a strategy RPG from SEGA. The game is set in an alternate Europe in the 1930's. A group of young soldiers fights for their land against an invading Empire. Although the story is great, the real gem is the gameplay. The gameplay is filled with an innovative blend of strategy, tactics, RPG and action. Graphics is simply amazing and beautiful. It's like watercolored anime in full 3D motion. The whole presentation of the game is top-notched. This is a must try game for all PS3 owner. It's one of the richest, most rewarding games that I've played for a long while.
