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.

Traditionally, strategy RPGs have used geometrical grids in a 2D turn-based environment. Valkyria Chronicles is also turn-based, but functions in a 3D world using combat most similar to a third-person shooter. There are a range of different classes all with their own strengths and weaknesses including Lancers, Scouts, Stormtroopers, Snipers, Engineers and Tanks. Each class accommodates each-other and the abilities involved create tactics that mimic the qualities of chess. Thankfully, unlike other SRPGs, Valkyria Chronicles gives out a ranking at the end of every battle that rewards you for how well you did. This translates into not only experience points but currency as well. The experience points are then used to level up the different classes however you would like and prevents you from feeling like whatever characters you started with you are stuck with. On the other hand, the currency is used for research & development which means new weapons, armor and outfitting for your tanks. The game progresses through a series of chapters within a book, and each chapter includes at least 1 battle as well as several cutscenes. The story is very lighthearted and the character development is absolutely spectacular. It is a game that is very easy to pick-up and play and the introduction really helps ease even the newest newcomer into the gameplay mechanics and strategies involved. However, the story is very typical and features some personalities that can be annoying, but thankfully the voice acting is excellent. Controls Valkyria Chronicles is based on a 3D strategic plane, and the controls really accommodate the gameplay. Once a unit is selected from the tactical map, the camera is brought down to the players level and y ou are free to move about. Movement distance is restricted on each turn based on the class of the character, and the movement is very tight and responsive. Once your character is in position for an attack, the press of R1 pauses the map and allows you to line up a shot. At this point the game turns into

The menu also doesnt suffer from lag whatsoever and really helps make the experience smooth and intuitive. Graphics One of the most unique features of Valkyria Chronicles is the art style. Valkyria Chroncles features fully 3D cell-shaded graphics like never seen before. The game resembles a beautiful drawing and helps support the light-hearted atmosphere. Each unit, texture and background looks like it has been hand drawn and the presentation is absolutely magnificent. The palette used mimics that of an anime and really proves to be successful in every regard. Sound The sound effects of Valkyria Chronicles are very basic but also very fitting. However, the real strength of the audio is in the original soundscore. Valkyria Chronicles quite simply has one of the better RPG music scores of this generation. The theme song is one of the best Ive heard and really captures the mood of the game. To accompany that is a terrific voice cast featuring many successful actors and actresses from all over Hollywood. Every sound made by the game is deliberate and captivating. Lasting Appeal With a 40 hour campaign mode as well as some extras on the second playthrough, Valkyria Chronicles has plenty of replayability.
