Eh, this game was just alright...barely. It can get addicting which is why i gave it a 6. The storyline sucks, The character development is EXTREMELY poor. There are some super corny moments. At times I felt I was playing a game for a pre-teen. Disappointing to say the least. Gameplay somewhat saved this game. Good usage of a strategy platform that hasn't really been used before. I'd pass.
This is my first review, because usually I'm too lazy to write one. I always think people will know about it if it's great. But for Valkyria Chronicle, I really need to speak up for them. It's such a great strategy game, extremely nice art style, balanced yet addicting game play. The only reason this game isn't a big hit is due to the lack of marketing. But in terms of quality, it totally raise the bar for all the other RPG game out there. Square, I think it's time for you to be innovative.

Small amount of RPG basis, mostly strategy. The graphics make you feel like you're watching a living comic book. And if you've played Skies of Arcadia before, you're gonna love the reappearance of Vyse and Aika as perhaps the most useful duo sans the risk of losing your commanders. WWII-like settings and technology, with the classic "Forgotten ancient ultimate powers" coming out to make for an ever increasing challenge. Definite must-have for SEGA fans.
