The story of the game is indeed you can describe one of the unique RPG games out their. The battle system is what you can say "hard to master" but has a sense of humor and fun and challenge to it, true it can be sometimes a pain to level up but once you make your party sturdy and manageable you can feel the sense of relief and satisfaction of the game play. As for the story I felt a sense of depression when I first saw the "Introductional cut scene" seeing Chopin sleeping in his deathbed slowly dieing it just didn't feel right. Also what worse he had an attack of his seizure before going through that state, it just reminded me of my own sickness as well but to all that I found the story of Eternal Sonata a rpg to remember. it so diverse and the character has their own back story to it. I can tell this is one of the rpg games worth playing because of the feel of it its like your watching a story comic come to life, this is where there uniqueness come in play. The game play is like a clock board game into where when times runs out, you will be switching to defensive tactic to were you just hit one button to guard the character or counter attack the enemy. Its quit easy to use but hard to master especially on your second play through. To this ends I say this is one of the game that is unique as I said, and the feel of reality and facts of life that makes this game has my votes.
For the game play on the other hand, leveling up isn’t that half bad and the controls are not that hard to use. I know because my right side of my body is spastic so I only use one hand in my everyday lifestyle. For the most part I like about this game is there mixture of water color style experience you’ll have once you start the story, it’s a unique style that they will offer to the gamers who will play this game from start to end. Now as for the story line I would say the anime and the game had made some few changes, also for me for the anime story, I more prefer the game story than the anime one for the reasons the anime isn’t that very child friendly series unlike the game story it’s a little bit soft when it comes to the drama scenes in a sense it gives you a bit of relief after every challenges you faced.
Compared with the game, the story of the anime is much more brutal, There was one scene in where they showed a guy laying dead on the ground with a few splatter of blood in his body and his eyes was open, after I saw this I felt horrible his not even an adult yet his just a child, I think he’s name was Vyse Inglebard because he was the guy who has an eye patch on his right eye. For this terms I say Valkyria Chronicles is indeed more enjoyable game and the story isn’t that half bad due to its few changes. Oh I almost forgot about mentioning about the plot and the good and bad of every skirmish game in Valkyria Chronicles, its nice that the targeting system is a good when you miss in a fifty meter radius but when you fire some guy in a very close range and didn’t killed it, I have to say that was a little funny and to the fact it was an head shot. I laugh so hard it was just way bad that I have to admit the targeting system needs a little fixing. As for the plot all of the skirmishes, expect the skirmish game to be “Retake the Empire Took Again From Us” or capture the flag game you’ll be playing. For me this isn’t half bad either but for other player out their going through to repeat every mission they start and finish earlier in the main story they'll find it rather repetitive even though the amount of experience point they give is manageable they still disagree. So I say to them, oh well. Also as for the part of if your comrades die and in three turns you didn’t ask for a medic they are dead for good. This challenge gives the gamer a sense of “I need to be careful out there and no one must die” kind of way, to that I enjoy it because this plot sticks to the story of the anime in which Welkin was careful with his men and in the end no one died, well only in his squad anyways the others weren’t so lucky. One more thing though I was a bit disappointed about the Valkyrian fight, oh how I wish the game developers made a special game scene in were the player can control Alicia and brawl it out in the battle field just like what happened in the anime series instead of a movie clip.
And further more about the final battle with Maxillian since everyone has their own like and dislike about it I’ll just leave it at that. For the up coming Valkyria Chronicles two, someone please tell the game developers to put it in also in the ps3 for me to play and do a review on it as well for I really can’t play psp it’s hard for me to control for I only use one hand for the matter.
The changes really made a huge impact with the game experience so that’s why it can be also a good and bad thing for its more challenging in a sense its really hard to master. One of the reason also some of the monster is just to overwhelming more harder than the final boss. There was also one monster named vampire who doesn’t even look or act like one.
Graphics : 9.5
The whole story alone was awesome hands down should be ten, but with the unrealistic enemy and has a cartoon like feel to it. It didn’t hit the spot to well enough I had to drop 0.5% to it.
Music : 10
No word for it, I love the way the music and sound was made my only disappointment is I can’t listen to it in a separate menu or what they call it a jukebox.
Story : 9.7
The thing I like most with the flow of this RPG is everyone has their own back or sideline story not only the people but the whole planet and people who lived there. Still in the very end, the story line has the same old classic ending to any final fantasy game “Save The World”.
Note: This review will continue on late Dec of 2011 as soon as Final Fantasy XIII 2 is released.
Story : 9.0
Music : 8.7
Anyway all in all this is a JRPG you wanna try just for the fun game play of it in a the stressful day in school or at work how ever old you are that is to say.
Game play: Its so easy to play and has a ridiculously comical moment for every battle. 7.8
Graphic: As for the graphics they made full use of the blue ray of the PS3 so thumbs up to all no question asked. 8.9
Sound/Music: The sound effect what makes the game has its funny moments for some of the sound is what you can really only hear in a cartoon. As on the other hand the music was a bit of a letdown for some don't really match the moments in in the movie scene, the time and place the music was a bit off. 6.4
Lasting Appeal: For the least part of it all you'll be enjoying item collecting for the reason you'll need it later on, and the fun of it really is collecting and figuring out how much you need for all is the enjoyment of it because your an alchemist and that's what your jobs is to collect and create simply as that. Also the easy monster battle on the sideline what makes it fun hehe. 8.0
Graphics - As for this the design and graphics of the game is still at its fullest. 9.0
Music / Sound - For the most part everything is close to perfect. Good work on this one as well. 8.9
Lasting Appeal – Because of the added multiplayer you may enjoy this for a while, but beyond that there’s nothing new to added for the game. 8.5
Story – It’s a well based story and a long one, so all and all you’ll be engrossed in the adventure of the assassin Ezio Auditore. 8.9
Gameplay – The Controllers is hard for some of the acrobatic moves that you need to perform to escape the pursuers that are after you. But for all and all it’s just hard to use. 7.9
