    Valkyria Revolution offers a complex story that will capture us. Despite its new combat style, lack of translation and long scenes, Valkyria Revolution brings us a story and settings that are well-executed. It's a title that deserves to be played.

    Valkyria Revolution offers a very complete gameplay and full of possibilities. Nevertheless, the excessive cut-scenes and the inconsistency narrating the story, make it a humble title that mixes the genres Musou and SRPG in an effective way.

    Valkyria Revolution tells a decent tale of war, but the strength of that story is dulled by overlong, boring, and poorly animated cutscenes.

    Valkyria Revolution only really exceeds in providing a ton of content to work through and a whole load of story to watch unfold.

    I really don’t get what the developers were trying to achieve with Valkyria Revolution. It pretty much takes everything that was good about the prior games and just throws it out of the window, replacing it with tedium and banality.

    Turgid storytelling, poorly explained mechanics and abysmally unoptimised code. [Sept 2017, p.86]

    This is a spin off that simply shouldn't be. It tries to take on too many ideas without forming an interesting and engaging core. With boring characters and a story that requires more cutscenes than gameplay, this game really exemplifies why show, don't tell is still true.

    I had high hopes for Valkyria Revolution..

    The developer decided to take the Valkyria series into a new action RPG system (similar to Dynasty Warriors), which left gamers a little bit skeptic.

    After achieving 100% on this game (all story missions, all free missions, all circle events, all upgrades, all achievements), I can finally voice my opinion.

    First off let me name the good points:
    - New combat style is quite fun with the ragnite element
    - Can play as all characters in the game
    - Consistent upgrades throughout progression in game.

    and now for some bad points
    - Whilst the story is somewhat ok, this is overlooked by the sheer amount of cutscenes that you will have to sit through! The cutscenes and the storytelling feel forced and are more frequent than actually playing the game!
    - Story is predictable, no cliffhangers, twists or anything noteworthy - it isn't a story I will remember for years to come.
    - Repetitive gameplay - All missions are seemingly the same, hack, slack and run through levels. I would have preferred to have a little more diversity throughout the game (the boss battles are a nice additional though).
    - The RP system - when you command an attack, you will use what they call "RP" which then takes a few seconds to build back up before you can strike again. Whilst I understand why the developer introduced this, it really does have a big effect on the momentum of the gameplay.

    Overall I would give this game a 5/10. If this game had a better story narrative and more gameplay than cutscenes, then I could have quite easily given this game a 7/10.
