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.
I really have not played many games recently. I am a father of two so most of my time is already occupied. But I can remember when my brothers and I used to talk about games with amazing cut scenes or cinematics and wonder if the game play graphics would ever match them. I bought a PS3 to kill two birds with one stone since it also plays BluRay Discs. When I started looking for games to play, I found Valkyria Chronicles. When I put the game in, I nearly jumped out of my seat with excitement. Amazing graphics, outstanding story, and a unique mix of tactics and RPG game play. My only critique of this game is the exorbitant amount of cinematics. They really slow down the game. I understand the need for the scenes in order to advance the story of the game, I just thought there were way too many of them. Especially since the game play graphics are so outstanding. There is still plenty of game to play, but if I wanted to watch a movie I would have went out and rented one! Over all this is an amazing game full of challenges that will test even frequent gamers. Try it, you'll like it!
This is one of the most interesting and fun games I ever played. The graphics are comic book which is a change of pace in today's gaming world. You dont walk around the world waiting for a battle, the story is told out of a book. So you see when the battles' are going to happen. You can have up to 20 people in your squad which is awesome. There are scouts,gunners,snipers,en- giners,and lancers(bazooka). The man character drives a tank that you also get to control. This game is worth going out and buying hands down. But at the very least rent it. Im not a big R.P.G fan and I think its one the best of its class.
