Call me a fanboy if you like but Valkyrie Profile Lenneth is no slouch when it comes to a good RPG. Revived from the days of the Playstation, Valkyrie Profile Lenneth comes on one convenient UMD Disk instead of two CD's, also the game itself is amazing. The artwork of the environments are incredible and the sprites of the actual characters are fluid in movement and are enjoyable to watch in cut scenes as well as battles.
Battles are turn based but instead of each character getting their own turn you have choices here and when it comes to RPG's I love choices. You can either attack with one, two, three, or all 4 characters at once to beat up on the enemy. I say that is pretty awesome, of course you get your item selections and certain magics that you can only use with a certain menu that takes up one of the character's turns though if you do use it and the drawback is once you use an item or menu magic then the rest of your team cannot attack, that is okay. If you could attack after using Menu Magic which usually attacks all the enemies anyway for massive damage or Items which are very valuable the game would be broken.
This game also chooses your path for you depending on which difficulty you are playing on. Anything below hard (Hard being the hardest) you cannot get the true ending or some of the really awesome weapons or special characters for that matter in the Seraphic gate. If anyone has played Valkyrie Profile before and has used Freya, Brahms, Lenneth, and Lezard Valeth on the same team before, you know exactly what I am talking about. The only thing hard and annoying really in hard mode is some of the dungeons like the Tower Of Lezard Valeth, the map is completely useless because of how big that place is, and so on and so forth.
This game really puts your RPG skills to the test, if you beat this game and get the true ending without looking at a guide then you know what you are doing. This game is still a Gem either way.
OK so i love rpg games and i played almost all the rpg games for the psp and they all stunk,but then am Valkryie Profile Lenneth and swept me off my feet.For all you rpg fans with a psp this is probably you best bet.Let me start off by saying how awsome the games battle system is. It is supprisingly easy understand.You can do various combos and whenever you set the commands for your character to fight it looks like you went into a fast pase action fight cut scene.The characters are also very awsome and there is a plentyful amount of them to choose from.The storyline is capturing and does support have voice acting from time to time.The only real flaws is that the game is not in 3D and you can not explore as much as you would in a regular rpg,but even that doesnt stop this game from bein pretty much the most awsome rpg for the psp.A 10 out of 10 hands down!!!!!
