Traveling games journalist Quintin Smith looks at over-the-shoulder strategy in Sega's sleeper PlayStation 3 title Valkyria Chronicles, exploring the title's little-publicized depth and charm.
just got it
i got to say
I love it , but i wish we could have the DLC that is out in Japan :(
Trophy support would be nice too :3
Just picked it up again(for £12 pounds at Tesco-after getting my mate one as well)myself after a light fingered, over happy to keep things he borrows friend disappeared with my copy to Australia!
I just had an insatiable urge t play the game again!
Everyone I know who's played it said they loved it BUT everyone who didn't said the useless demo put them off! Unsurprisingly, the demo fails to interest anyone because it shows nothing but some simple gameplay mechanics and none of the interesting personailty based stuff in the game. Sure it's an odd vision of 1930's Europe they invented and there's certainly a few olitically incorrect missteps but it's just so charming that you forgive them everything and so unque that when you want to play something like it there's no choice but to go right back to VC!
Brilliant, briliant game and I'm gutted we have to go to PSP for the sequel-had Sega pushed it a little I'm certain both this and the next game wopuld have done a lot better than VC has so far-I'm also hoping for trophies as they'll get more people playing it and it does deserve more attention from the masses. I suppose they're ensured better eastern sales on PSP but it won't be the same as those glorious hours of gaming with the lovely watercolour vibe on the big screens at home. Oh, well.
Seriously undervalued game that a lot more PS3 owners should have played-a very unigue experience--esp this generation.
such a fantastic game and a classic sleeper hit, word of mouth is key for this game, spread the word and dont buy it second hand, its so easy to pick up for a few quid lets give the developer the respect they deserve
