On a tale based loosely on Norse Mythological tales. Ragnarok is about to begin in the holy world of Asgard and the lead god Odin could not find strong enough warriors to serve the Aesir race. So Odin and the two supreme goddesses, Frey and Freya, send out a woman named Lenneth Valkyrie, to collect the souls of deceased warriors and witches to help the Aesir of Valhallah to protect their land and every other land from the rebellious Vanir.

Best RPG game on the Playstation.
10 December 2001 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Ah, finally, I get to see "valkyrie profile" on the movie site, so I just can't refuse!

I think Lenneth Valkyrie, the main heroine of this game, is a very good, empowering role model for girl gamers, much better than Lara Croft or Tifa Lockhart. Lenneth is smart, takes crap from no one and stands up for what she believes is right. Yes, she does sort of wear a dress outfit, but hey, at least her bust is not the center of attention (unlike most video game heroines, who are just there for looks). I wish more RPG heroines would be like her.

And for once, the plot is (loosely) based on Norse/Teutonic mythology and Japanese history. Sort of how Akira Kurosawa would write Norse myths.It's also rather amusing when you send your dead-souls to Asgard and see his/her reaction to different events that are happening there.

But the part that really shines is the extremely fun gameplay, which is a hybrid of RPG and Platformer games. The exploration of towns and dungeons are in the style of platform games, but the fighting style is RPG styled. You pick magic, combo up and better yet, fight together and do your special moves called "Purify Weird Soul" that will send your enemies off to Nifelheim.

Oh, did I forget to mention that there are three different endings and different change styles?

Overall, Valkyrie Profile is a fun-addicting RPG with a powerful plot and a dominating no-nonsense female lead character. Enix, Tri-Ace, I salut you.
