Portable Gamer writes: "Some gamers are starting to see tri-Ace as something of a joke now, when it comes to RPGs. After Infinite Discovery, and the recent Star Ocean game (both for the 360), both very average games in terms of story, this outing (although chronologically before Star Ocean, thanks to localisation) by the stricken developer is certainly a step in the right direction, but still falls short of the RPG formula that made games like The World Ends With You, and Dragon Quest V.
The story starts with two characters, Ancel and Wylfred, mercenaries in training. After a brief attack, Wylfred (You) is seemingly killed. He begs the gods for a chance to wreak vengance on the Valkyrie that stole his father's soul to become Einherjar, or 'fallen warriors' to fight on the Aesir side of Ragnarok, the Norse Apocalypse. Hel, the ruler of Niflheim (where all those that haven't proven their worth go), hears this call and having taken a Valkyrie feather that was found at Wylfred's Father's corpse (bear with me), she brings Wylfred back to have his vengance."
