As the first game in the franchise on a non-Sony system, Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume is also my introduction to the series. Because it was published by Square Enix and developed by tri-Ace (of Star Ocean fame), I expected an addictive tactical role-playing game. Even though I wasn't a fan of tactics games in the past, I have seen so many innovations in the genre in the last year that I am now more than willing to give tactical RPGs a try. Though Covenant of the Plume employs some interesting battle aspects and has high production values, it wasn't quite the engaging experience I wanted it to be."
