1UP: Valkyria Chronicles Hands On Preview

1UP writes: "I'm of two minds about Valkyria Chronicles, Sega's anticipated PS3-exclusive alternate-reality WWII tactical-role-playing game from some of the creative minds behind cult Dreamcast RPG favorite Skies of Arcadia: On one hand, it wouldn't be an understatement to say that it might redefine the always enjoyable -- yet somewhat stagnant -- strategy-RPG genre. And let's face it, when notorious opinionated rivals like 1UP's very own Jeremy Parish and Shane Bettenhausen (just watch them square off on the merits of Mega Man 9 on a recent 1UP Show) agree that something's worth playing, you know it's quality stuff. On the other hand, despite all its positives, I can't shake the feeling that Valkyria Chronicles isn't all that it could be".

The story is too old to be commented.

They didn't really mention any flaws, the only thing they mentioned was the story (and the backstory at that). That's kind of important I suppose, but they praised the gameplay and graphics so I don't see why they had "the feeling that Valkyria Chronicles isn't all that it could be".

Every game site has given positive previews. Sega has done a good job this year.
