Gaming Age writes: "Still, I enjoyed Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume despite its flaws. I think the story is actually really strong, and worth playing the game for. The combat does have some neat ideas, and the use of the Plume in killing teammates for your personal gain is certainly unique, but there are still too many flaws that keep this game from being excellent. It serves as a nice side story, but I have a hard time with the idea of this being an actual sequel to the series so far. The Valkyrie characters from the other games take a back seat to the humans too, which contributes to the side story aspect for me. Still, if you enjoy strategy RPG's, at least give this one a rent, it definitely does some things right. I'd hesitate to pick it up at full price though, so you might want to wait for a price drop or two".
