Summary: Very close to the original game for the PS3, Valkyria Chronicles . Looks very pretty, dialog and characters are just as corny, but the game play is still great, deep, fresh (a variant of the turn based style I haven't seen in any other game). If you have the ability to download though, you can now (Dec 31, 2010) get it for slightly less than half the price from PSN.
Summary: I didn't think sega could top the first Valkyria Chronicles but they have with this sequel. More of the same great strategy gameplay with added customization and depth, characters that are even better than the first with specific missions that flesh out they're personality. This will be a front runner for best handheld game of the year, buy it!.
Has deep strategy,nice presentation,charming characters,a story that's emotional at times.Great strategy/RPGame.

Makes me wish the third game had a European release

Excerpt: "...system. One such example is Valkyria Chronicles 2, the follow-up to one of my favorite PlayStation 3 games. What a pity then that Sega decided to transfer the series from the popular PS3 to the more obscure PSP. The resultant drop in sales has denied European fans from ever seeing Valkyria Chronicles 3 on these shores. The game is set in the fictional continent of Europa, which is modeled off World War II Europe. The tiny nation of Gallia lies sandwiched ...
Pros: Strategic gameplay that incorporates turn based & real time elements, over 50 hours of content .
Cons: Some players may find the lead character a tad annoying, the enemy A . I is weak .
Valkyria Chronicles II (PSP): Review of Valkyria Chronicles 2
9 August 2013
Summary: As mentioned in my other reviews, I recently became the proud owner of a PlayStation Vita. Although the handheld's software library, in Europe, is rather sparse I am not regretting my purchase one bit. I never owned a Sony PSP so the Vita has given me the opportunity of sampling some of the gems that were released on that system. One such example is Valkyria Chronicles 2, the follow-up to one of my favorite PlayStation 3 games.
Pros: Strategic gameplay that incorporates turn based & real time elements, over 50 hours of content.
Cons: Some players may find the lead character a tad annoying, the enemy A.I is weak.
