  1. Valkyrie Profile comes highly recommended and is by far the best role-playing game I've played so far this year.
  2. We can safely say that we highly recommend "Valkyrie Profile" as one of the PlayStation's best RPG's on 2000.

    While its story, or rather stories, are enough of a draw in their own right, it also happens to be one of the most gorgeous 2D creations I've ever seen, and possessed of such original game systems that even veteran RPG'ers might find themselves at sea for a little while.

    The multiple endings gives this title a very high replay value ensuring that you'll see more of the beautiful artwork.

    Despite its obvious deficiencies, from the unnecessarily irritating save system to the repetitiously moronic combat system, "Valkyrie Profile" remains an intriguing, often breathtaking roleplaying experience.
  6. If you're able to accept the awkward dungeon layouts and Draconian pacing, you'll be richly rewarded, but if you're unable to accept these quirks, you should approach with caution.
  7. A game that makes great strides in innovation, but fails to take the extra time and effort in polishing those innovations.

Whith so much replaybility and various endings, Is this game worth buying, even if its only avalible at ebay prices (90-150 dollars)? Yes! Whith so much replaybility and various endings, this should have shown what RPG's could become in the future. If you love RPG's search this one out. (P.S.: Always check the bargain bins in gamestores, I found mine at $36 used in gamestop, and thats 5 years after it came out!) Expand

The battle system was also done very well, after playing the final fantasies so much I needed something new and this game gave it to me. Now if only they would remake it for another system.....

    I am amazed by this game, I was three years ago and I still am now. This is by far the most beautiful game. The battle-system is simple, but I am amazed by this game, I was three years ago and I still am now. This is by far the most beautiful game. The battle-system is simple, but quite fun. Wyhat Spine-tingling and uplifting, Silent Hill 3 is unlike any horror game I have ever played before. The environments are done beautifully and every event in game was done well. Don't expect action and nothing but violence, expect horror and puzzling mayhem. What really brought my attention was and is always, are the audio. The most common mistake among developers and/or producers is ignoring dubbing and audio. Everything is in perfect order and I look forward to the prequel and the sequel. I got my copy just recently for 30 bucks and 10 dvds and I couldn't be more happy. Expand

It was so sad, yet so engaging and so hopeful. It can be difficult to get the hardware to play it these days, much less an actual copy of the game, and emulation is always a bit sketchy... a real shame. This one's a classic. Collapse

    I really wanted a change of pace from the normal Final Fantasy go of things. The storyline is centered around Norse Mythology, and that makes I really wanted a change of pace from the normal Final Fantasy go of things. The storyline is centered around Norse Mythology, and that makes the experience a little more enjoyable, yet a little more confusing. The game was incredibly fun for the first 20 hours, but then suddenly the difficulty level gets pumped up to massive proportions. A strategy guide helps very little as you find yourself crawling thorugh giganitc dungeons and fighting monsters that can easily tear your well rounded party to pieces. I have two gripes. 1) The "time" feature of the game which basically means that every time you enter a place, more "days" tick away, and once you reach a certain set amount, your time ends. It adds unecessary extra weight to the players shoulders...and 2) You spend hours upon hours rounding out character after character only to have them shipped off to fight for Odin. Boo. Overall, it's quite a solid game, I usually don't care much for graphics, but Valkyrie's were the best I've seen since Legend of Mana. I recommend it for anyone who wants a change of pace.
