    With more than forty hours of gameplay, a "versus" mode for you to battle friends, and a difficulty that is stout, Valhalla Knights 2 is one of the best buys you're likely to find on the PSP for quite some time.
  2. Fans of the Valhalla Knights series will most likely love the new added content and streamlined control factors included in the new PSN digital download Valhalla Knights 2: Battle Stance.
  3. Undoubtedly, there are quite a few aspects of Valhalla Knights 2 that action RPG fans will find very appealing, but it ends up being a wash when you look at the game's numerous faults. In short order these issues wear what little fun is to be had down to a dull point.
  4. Like most RPG’s, you’re going to get a lot of hours of gameplay out of this one. You can expect to take your party of six out for forty or fifty hours before you’re done. The problem is there are a lot better options out there and so this one just ends up being average.
  5. While it has several good points including a large character creation system with tons of items, armor and weapons.
  6. Valhalla Knights 2 does nothing with the power of the PSP and is a rather bad game to boot.

    With the same quest and exploration issues from the first title, as well as lots of micromanagement problems and missing information, Valhalla Knights 2 almost feels like a rehash of the original title with a brand-new coat of paint.
  8. An overall miserable experience.
  9. So once again, this fledgling series fails to impress, and while I get the idea behind the game and the mechanics that it's going for, it just feels like a lot of the elements are unnecessary and a bit too archaic for my tastes.
  10. Even with its impressive character customization options and solid visuals, Valhalla Knights 2 falls short of being a must-own title on the PSP by a very wide margin.
  11. Seriously, if this dungeon crawled any slower, it'd be going backward. [Dec 2008, p.82]
  12. You'll find monsters, loot, and frustrations galore lurking in the shadows of this tedious dungeon crawler.

    While some hardcore dungeon-crawler fans might get some enjoyment out of Valhalla Knights 2, I'd rather skip the grinding and play a game where the combat accentuates my exploration of a rich, engaging world.

    It's amazing how much better researched and thought out RPG Fan's positive review is in comparison to the neophyte negative reviews. The lucidity with which the gameplay, cutscene content and battle system limitations are explained puts the rest of the reviews on this page to shame. VK2 is a challenging game with a story written in by Final Fantasy XII's Miwa Shoda. The contempt for Xseed seems to amount to this: the game is sufficiently hard to wound most reviewers' masculinity. They can't play it, so they condemn the very elements that elevate the game: difficulty, excellent artwork and cutscenes, better than average storytelling. No one has bothered to write a walkthrough yet, which means ordinary users can't brag about finishing in 10 hours in gamefaqs forums. In the old days, every player had to slot through without help. This is a game fit for those days. One thing I'd change about the game is the battle system. You have to continually reset the player's angle during battles or s/he runs off attacking some corner of the battlefield while being assailed by an enemy. That isn't enjoyably difficult, it's an unnecessary glitch. It's also the reason I gave a good action RPG with a good story a mere six stars. Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. This game is all right I got it for 10$ so I am not complaining. The story is there but it is not on par with almost any other rpgs out there. The combat is fun until you get to taking on numerous enemies at the same time. Gaining money is always an annoying task as it takes a long time and is usually spent on appraising items than any gear. Quests are boring and are only barely enjoyable because of the fighting system which is not good or bad, if yo don't have anything else to play than try this it is all right for 10 dollars.

    Valhalla Knights 2 only promises to give fans a humongous disappointment. Most games dont live up to the hype, but Valhalla Knights 2 takes it up one more level: It completely falls short of the hype. All the problems and glitches that were in the original still persist, and the fact that the world is bigger only serves to make those problems loom even larger. Full Review »
