    Valkyria Chronicles is, simply, one of the best tactical games you’ll ever play. It’s serious, but doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s emotionally compelling while never losing sight of the fact it’s also a game. It’s a popular and well-regarded game that, for whatever reason, people simply don’t talk about it enough. Hopefully with this PlayStation 4 release that will change.

    Valkyria Chronicles is a deeply satisfying game and one that I really only have a few minor gripes with. By the time the credits rolled I found myself completely wrapped up in a cast of like-able characters and excited to dig into the game’s New Game +. If, like me, you never gave Valkyria Chronicles a chance then there’s no better time to see what you’ve been missing out on.

    Valkyria Chronicles received a lot of acclaim during its PS3 debut, and its praises must be sung again in this remastered port. Whatever Sega decides to do with the franchise from here on remains unclear, but at least fans new and old can enjoy one of their finest efforts in the last generation, not to mention one of the single best RPGs period.

    This was and still is a very challenging turn based tactics gem with cleverly induced real-time elements and a beautiful, timeless art design.

    Has aged remarkably well, and is polished enough to draw in curious newbies. Veterans should be well chuffed with all the DLC thrown in. [July 2016, p71]

    Valkyria Chronicles Remaster is basically the PC version of the game, running on PlayStation 4. The cutscenes still have the big aliasing issue, but all the other scenes in the game run with gorgeous 1080p and 60fps graphics. The gameplay is still as solid and entertaining as always. If you own a PS4 but no PC or PS3, give this awesome strategic game a try.

    While this is easily the best version of Valkyria Chronicles yet, it still doesn't quite live up to its potential.

Not only does it include all the DLC from the ps3 version, it also has a 60 fps and HD re-mastered quality of graphics making this game shine golden all over again. Never understood how some people skipped on this one or how very few found it boring or tiresome. This game truly innovates its genre of tactical RPGs with genuine and unique quality traits not found in any other game before it. I was impressed with this game way back when it came out on the ps3 so long ago, and I'm even more impressed that they brought it back and boosted it up to be an even better of a game then it was back then. Can't wait for the "sequel," or "spiritual successor" if you will, that will come most likely next year. If you are a fan of tactics ogre or final fantasy tactics, this is your game! Any fan of RPGs, especially tactical RPGs, will fall in love with this title. It has so much to offer and the story and plot, as well as combat system and gameplay, will leave you begging for more.

I'm expecting a new one in the short term and also I'd love to see Valkyria Chronicles 2 and 3 remade for the PS4. In fact, Valkyria Chronicles 2 it's in my personal all time top five rank, even if it was only released as a minor game exclusive for the PSP. Get it, give it some time to check that lenghty tutorial and then only enjoy Expand

It's turn based war strategy, but with you taking third-person control of each unit. It's really engrossing and even though the story is cheesy, you still get involved in it. You will have your favourite troops that will die and some gritty battles that you almost lose- it's tense and fun. Totally recommend it. Expand

    Valkyria chronicles is a fantastic game. Generally by the end of most RPGs I'm dashing through the last 10 hours, ready to move on to the nextValkyria chronicles is a fantastic game. Generally by the end of most RPGs I'm dashing through the last 10 hours, ready to move on to the next game, and burned out on stale mechanics. On the flip side, Valkyria chronicle left me wanting more. The pacing was impeccable. With light innovations on many boards, the game remained fresh until the end. After sinking 50-60 hours plus on most RPGs "new game plus" is not usually somethings that I have any interest in doing. I will however certainly be revisiting this game.
    The story line was "so, so" I did however care a bit and have a decent attachment to most of the characters by the end. Which was a huge suprise since the beginning of the game is a corn fest.
    The only reason I didn't give the game a 10 is because there is very limited customization and it seemed as though there were leagues of innovations not explored. I'm crossing my fingers for another title on a system that I own.
