One of the extra facts not many enjoyed in vh1 was the multiplayer. Game was amazing when you had a friend team up with you with 3 of his guys and 3 of yours. You both were able to run around in the dungeons and could join in to help in a battle. To me the only thing that was missing in vh1 was the storyline and to know this one should have that, i am ready to get it on release date.
Crisis Core is cool, just bit too easy. Liked FFXII more. ...go for Monster Hunter series...those rock.. bit hard to get into..but then it grows on u fast.
Given the fact I picked up the game at a bargain bin price to give it a second go, it had alot of good things going for it after I learned you could get extra stat points when creating a new character w/ a 9 letter name, I trashed the previous save I had and started from scratch. bottom line+ grinding galore, but the first time I tried playing I gave up even with three priests at a disadvatage due to a fiercely tough and unfair leveling system/difficulty. If you like grinding for gold n' stuff definitely DO IT AGAIN... it works and I've enjoyed my progress thus far.
The first VK was awesome-amazing graphics, real time battles, great customization, warp points, great weapons and armor. Looking forward to VK2.
the first one was ok.. until you beat it... then it got boring, reall quick, and, i think by canine they mean dog, if you check the pics there are dogs in em... Im lookin forward to this game though!
This looks very interesting. I will have to get this one just for braggin rights among my local fellow gamers, which include a couple of ladies, too. 8)
Jeanne D Arc was one of the best PSP games i played. Crisis core was also good, but not quite as enjoyable, as it only became interesting the fact that it was of the Final Fantasy 7 storyline. the gameplay was not so good actually, and kind of repetitive, im talking about the missions here. I like the idea of Valhalla Knights, but the fact that its a super long dungeon crawl, hard time of leveling up, problem of money/hiring another party member and basic armour early on the game makes one lose interest drastically. Plus the animation is bad, you can see the character running aound the town map and striding as he runs, but the map hardly moves, they should consider the animation more realistically. I'll buy this one if fair reviews will be heard about this one..
i might consider buying if they fixed the leveling up system the previous one was a hassle b/c everyone had to share the experience, a poor attempt to prolong the life of the game. also im afraid it might happen again cause they are promising a huge amnt of gameplay time
hmmm...wel i havnt played the first one it seemed like a mixed reaction, but this one looks pretty cool might pick it up one day if it turns out to be good
Apart from Jeanne D'arc and Crisis Core, should be more interesting classic rpgs on the PSP. Grandia remake would be great (at least i would buy it)!
