Goofs

During the Chapter 14 cut-scene called "Awakening" where Faldio uses the Valkyrur's lance to awaken Alicia, the subtitles were incorrect because it did not match Faldio's voice dialogue. The subtitles reads, "Awaken, Valkyria. Your foe aims to rob this land of peace... Kill them all!" The correct subtitle would've been, "Arise, Valkyria. Your adversaries want to bring a war to this land... Kill them all!" as Faldio would say that for the voiced dialogue. See more »

World War 2 style anime tactical RPG
28 June 2016 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

Anime style story-driven tactical RPG about courageous Squad 7 of militia fighting a hostile nation that invaded beautiful and peaceful country of Galia.

PROS:

  • Beautiful comic book style graphics.




  • The game uses fictional countries and nations, but definitely has a


WW2 feel. If you like WW2 themes (I do), the game is great.

  • Fine character development and touching story.




  • Good voice acting.




  • Good music.




  • Lots of tactical options. Every unit serves its purpose. Multiple


options to win every battle.

  • Some levels are challenging, but as a person that sometimes has to


refer to tutorials and FAQs, I was able to complete all by myself.

MEH:

  • AI moves might be better. There are times when enemy is able to ruin


you, but instead of destroying one tank, delivers equal number of attacks on both your tanks. So you have a feeling that AI goes easy on you. There is no difficulty setting.

  • Japanese dev had to squeeze a cute winged piglet there. It serves no


purpose at all.

  • There are times where it is sort of naive, but it's still good.




CONS:

  • Controls are sort of clunky, definitely prepared for gamepad, not a


mouse.

  • Your tanks get stuck.




  • Some parts are unskippable, which may be painful, because sometimes


you know you royally screwed up after enemy's first move and you'll need to reload from save for sure, but surprise surprise, you have to wait for enemy's all moves to do anything (it can take 2-5 minutes).

As you can see, important stuff in the game is really good. There are some nuisance bugs and glitches, but it's all within norms. I recommend Valkyria Chronicles wholeheartedly.
