Product Details:

Valkyria Chronicles is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s, Europe divided in two and ruled by the Empire and the Federation. The Empire has set its sights on invading a small neutral country called Gallia, which is situated in the middle of the two great empires. The game follows a hero named Welkin and his fellow soldiers of the Federation's 7th Platoon that are fighting against the Empire, who is intent on unifying the continent under its power. The Federation discovers that the Empire possesses a secret weapon, known as the "Valkyria"- an ancient race with special powers thought to exist only in legends. With this new discovery, the fate of the Federation's ability to win the war and a hope for a better future hangs in the balance.

Built upon the new "CANVAS" engine developed internally by SEGA Game Studios Japan, Valkyria Chronicles' ground-breaking 3D graphics resemble a watercolor painting in motion. The power of the PLAYSTATION 3 system allows the development team to exploit the full potential of the new engine, giving players amazing environments to explore. A new type of tactical battle concept has also been designed for Valkyria Chronicles. Known as "BLiTZ," this battle concept gives players freedom to strategically move around the environment and attack enemies using real-time controls, something never before seen in the tactical role-playing game genre. The new "CANVAS" engine technology, the "BLiTZ" battle concept and an epic storyline offer players hours of exciting gameplay.

"Valkyria Chronicles' CANVAS' engine allows gamers to enter a world that at one time could only be created with paints and watercolors," said Elliott Chin, Director of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "With its stunningly unique visual style and the new BLiTZ' tactical battle system, Valkyria Chronicles is sure to entice gamers to enter its special world and join Welkin and Alicia in their cause to save Gallia."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different in a good way I'll just start out saying that this game is very fun and enjoyable. I really loved the strategy in this game, it's one of the best battle systems I've ever played. Nothing is funner than picking your own squad members and placing them around the battlefield the way that you want. It's not the easiest of games at times but it can be one of the most enjoyable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My top 10 favorite video game of all time!! back in '09, i bought valkyria chronicles and i didn't get a whole lot further on that game because i was all new on strategy games. BUT in 2012 and 2013, i've gotten a lot further on that game, and i beat it. twice. The strategy battlefield was decent, but the story-line was incredible. So, frankly, valkyria chronicles is one of my all-time favorites.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nearly Perfect! (9.5/10) If you've ever played Fire Emblem Awakening on 3DS, you will definitely enjoy this game. I never even found out about it until recently, but I'm already many hours into it. Everything about it, the story, graphics, soundtrack, characters, and gameplay are amazing. This has become one of my favorite games of all time. You really grow attached to your squadmates and want to keep them alive and hit each objective as you fight for your home country.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooo awesome and obscure OMG THIS GAME IS FUN! Your running around shootin stuff. I like it because its like battalion wars where there is real-time 3rd person shooting, as well as something like military madness with strategic rts-type game style. The only problem is the difficulty. The game gets SOOOO hard just after a few battles. Other than that it's great. best strategy game ever. There are also tons of loveable characters that you can choose! You can mix an match different characters in your platoon with different classes. There are like 50 other characters that you can recruit. They all have specific personalities and traits that make them differ on the battlefield. I love the anime style graphics. It is a great military shooting game for TPS fans. I would recommend this game to EVERY and ANY strategy game fan. It's the greatest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from To hard-difficulty up their with dark souls I prefer turnbased games that are not in realtime, everytime you move a character they die because their isnt enough cover- glitchy too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Great turnbased/realtime hybrid RPG. It's been said in other reviews, but if your looking for an anime Black-Ops, this game is not for you. However, if you are into cerebral stratgey with an incredible artistic flair and depth of gameplay, you gaming desires will be satified. I'm not one to judge story-line, but it's compelling enough to keep you interested from start to finish. The characters are affable and the voice-overs are decent. (Do I hear the voice of Radical Edward from the great Cowboy Bebop?Probably.) One small gripe is the character movement. It can be a bit clunky at times. This can be a pain in the butt, especially when you have to move quickly and think quickly. But you'll soon anticipate this and compensate before you make your move. Bravo to the art team. I am green with envy of the vision they brought to life. Hardcore RPGers rejoice. Can't wait to play the second installment. Peace!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's my type of game. Well you should know this before you go ahead and buy this game, it is a strategic game, not your typical first-role shooting, nor it is like any RPG or action game out there. The graphic is breezing and indeed the game looks good. the music is beyond average but definitely not as catchy as some major titles. If you are into this genre you'll enjoy this game because of its well executed quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! If you own a PS3, this game is a must have. The beautiful art paint looking graphics is perfect in this game. The story is filled with epic scene and emotional one too. A very very good RPG game. Various way to customized each characters
