5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in the series. New mechanics are a very welcome addition., 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A classic Fire Emblem experience, but with new gameplay elements that make this one exceed its predecessors in many ways.

The new and much more explicit mechanics for developing bonds between characters as well as the ability for two units to pair up and occypy the same square work extremely well.

Also, the ability to create your own character is a welcome addition.

The game allows your characters to become extremely powerful, but at the same time provides a challenge well suited to these powerful characters.

I cannot imagine that fans of the series will not love this game.
The "casual" mode, where characters do not die permanently is optional, and the game provides the same 'hardcore' experience as previous games in the series.

The combat animations look very nice. The 3D-effects also aren't all that bad, although most people will probably play the game with 3D switched off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original, fun and beautiful strategy, 9 Dec. 2009
After hearing danish game lovers praising this game, I decided to try it out myself - and I agree wholeheartedly with them. This is one of the most amazing games I have played for years.

First of all Valkyria Chronicles is a lot of fun. The way you control your units on the battlefield in a mix of turn-based and real-time gameplay is very satisfying, and quite unlike anything I have seen before. The missions in the game are all well-designed and fun to play, and some are quite challenging without ever being unfair. Since units only die permanently if they are knocked out and you dont rescue them within three turns, you generally won't experience the kind of frustration that a game like Fire Emblem (GBA)could give you. Also, it's possible to save your game in an infinite amount of slots at almost any time.

The game features an impressive cast of characters with interesting personalities on both sides of the conflict. The world of Valkyria Chronicles which is a sort of alternate reality based on both World War 1 and World War 2, touches on a lot of interesting subjects.

Grafically the game is a piece of art, and the crayon-filter makes both cut-scenes and in-game graphics look amazing.

I think it's safe to recommend this game to anyone with the slightest interest in games.
