The pick up and play aspect of Valkyria Chronicles 2 allows me to have just as much fun with it as I did the ps3 version. This version is actually a better all around game than the ps3 version in my opinion. Being able to change classes and having skill trees are one of the many new features you will find with the psp version.
Pros: -Class changes for your charecter and npcs
-Battlefields are well done and fun to play
-Interesting storyline with great graphics
-Customizing weapos, armor and vehicles is really nice
Cons:-Cheesy dialogue at times but most jrpgs succumb to this failing
-Unable to save during battles (though you can simply place the psp in sleep mode it is still a shame you cant save anywhere
Okay, so this game was actually pretty good. The gameplay is solid, with plenty of room for you to be a grindhappy level junkie or a story-driven plotmonger. The graphics aren't the prettiest I've seen on the PSP, but are far from terrible. The turn-based shooter concept is very refreshing in a market full of dry, old concepts. The only real issue I have with the game is that the voice acting can be hit or miss, and that is only in the cutscenes that aren't fully narrated by the VA's. Soundbites don't always do justice to characters, especially when you've got such a huge collection of characters such as this game. But all in all, the game is very solid, with a steady learning curve, an inventive play-style, and solid leveling system.

When I first played this game, I got hooked and played it for 1 hour and a half. I kind of thought it was gonna be bad because its guns and shooting and stuff like that, but when I played it through my first mission, I was like wow this is actually kind of fun because your not killing people people, your killing enemies like in any regular rpg. I recommend this as a fun rental for rpg anime war fans.
As for the story: Its nice. it has a slight mystery supense to it. It also has a main character who got told his brother died in the war and he doesn't believe it. The graphics are good looking. The game has no glitches, flaws or drawbacks. Loadtime is fast and there honestly is nothing bad about it. I chose to keep this game at 1 hour and a half because I fell in love with it after that (i would marry it if I could, kind of a joke) kaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! ya so again huge recommendation for anime war lover rpg fans.
