    An absolute must play. Beautiful graphics, music, and gameplay. Words don't do the story justice. A truly spectacular game.

    Game could have been good, if it didn't resort to cheap enemy cheats. Lazy designed bosses that just run through your ranks and dodge every shot you throw at them. Its just not fun.
    If you buy this, be prepared to reload certain missions often and waste hours on un-fun bosses.

    Very good game, and much cheaper than V4 which came out about the same time.
    Some of the missions are more puzzle than strategy (The massive enemy tank) and probably requires some grinding in skirmish mode to get your troops up to a level where beating this one is going to work. But other than that it's a great game. Enough depth and strategy and well worth the small asking price (as I

    Valkyria Chronicles seemed like a perfect turn based strategy for me. I just couldn't get though the game though due to the art design and grinding.

    Pros: - Awesome concept for a strategy game by mixing top level down to individual units - The presentation and the way it taught you to play were good Cons: - Art design and story were not to my liking - Not a big fan of strategy

    - Not a big fan of strategy games that require grinding, I think every level should be designed so every player has the same effort to beat it

    Still a great game, worth playing if you haven't played the series and enjoy the genre.

    Whether you’re fresh to the series or already experienced Valkyria Chronicles 4 on Switch earlier this year, it’s still worth checking out the original. What it might lack in visual polish it more than makes up for with a rich story, affable characters and satisfying and strategic gameplay. Here’s hoping we see the second and third game make the leap to Switch too.

    The spark that made the original Valkyria Chronicles shine bright on other platforms still shines bright on Switch, in a game that is beautiful, rewarding, and timeless in its take on turn-based strategy.
