    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.

    The story is great, the characters will be forever in your memory. The game play is awesome and original. Learning curve is just right. Difficulty is perfect at any level. Game engine is flawless. Options are relevant and interesting. This is an amazing and truly gem of a game. And you will play it again. Also the PS4 version has all the DLC.
    A jaw dropping Sega classic.

    The game is perfect.
    How do you explain perfection? I point to my peers. This isn't some random 10. I just do not have the words to describe

    If you love RPGs, SRPGs, and turn based combat you will love this game. It is that simple.

    Very enjoyable RPG turn based strategy game. The story is nice though not really unqiue. The characters have some depth, though they are a bitVery enjoyable RPG turn based strategy game. The story is nice though not really unqiue. The characters have some depth, though they are a bit on the shallow side. The game is addicting, and makes you want to play more to find out what happens. The only minus is that enemy turn is unskipable, and with large enough enemies it takes ages for the enemy to play. Expand

    Really good game that has turned me on to this type of game. It's turn based war strategy, but with you taking third-person control of eachReally good game that has turned me on to this type of game. 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

    - Why is it every soldier hits you when you are in the line of sight?
    - Unpredictable AI. AI can be both stupid and smart.
