    Its difficulty leads to an enormous amount of fun and it really drives you to keep going. It's action packed, rewarding and satisfying. Interesting story and good graphics for its time. The only thing keeping it from a 10 is a lack of polish.

  1. It all looks lush and the gameplay is surprisingly enjoyable despite the frustration, but it's not one for the casual gamer.
  2. Valkyrie's controls are so klunky...it feels worse than just awkward, it literally hurts to play Valkyrie for more than a couple hours at a time. [Spring 2002, p.82]

    It's throw-your-controller-across-the-room-in-frustration difficult...and you'll love it.
