"One of the things that perplexes us around the office is why Valkyria Chronicles II has been released for a different platform than the original release. When Sega released the first game, it was for the PlayStation 3, and despite its lack of best-seller status, it gained enough of a cult following to be considered a modest hit. The sequel, of all places, is on the PlayStation Portable, which might frustrate those who were expecting next-gen goodness. However, if you own the platform and don’t mind changing your strategies mildly to format the portable console’s set-up, you’ll find it’s just as rewarding as the original. And, surprisingly, in some ways, it’s even better."
