It's not much of an excuse to say we were completely swamped during the hectic release period between October and November last year, but that's our only defense. However, it's good to know that many people have rewarded Sega for producing a high-quality strategy/RPG title that is both original and entertaining. We all have to agree that Sega's glory days are well behind them (we're currently scheduling Sonic's funeral), but every once in a while, they really surprise us. In the case of Valkyria Chronicles, they managed to develop a game that will undoubtedly appeal to a certain core demographic, but should also intrigue those who are looking for something new. After finally spending enough time with this one, we've come to the conclusion that not only is it the most overlooked title of 2008, but it's also one of the more impressive strategy-based productions to be released in the past few years.
