    Outside of these minor issues, Valkyria Chronicles 4 is undoubtedly the best game I've played so far in 2018.

    Valkyria Chronicles 4 is the sequel I’ve been waiting for, returning to the roots of what made the first game so special.

    Combines robust storytelling with consistently inventive, surprising missions. Not just a return to form, but a new series peak.

    Harkening back to the first game in the series, Valkyria Chronicles 4 does very little to improve upon its tried and tested formula. A new set of characters and a few welcome additions however are enough to make this one just as enjoyable as the original Valkyria Chronicles ten years ago.

    Valkyria Chronicles 4 is a solid game, but if you are new to the series, I suggest to start with Valkyria Chronicles Remastered. VC4 builds on its ideas and the fans will enjoy it a lot, although I am a bit worried that the developers do not know where to go next — it is painfully apparent in their approach to gameplay mechanics and evolution of their fictional universe.

    With few major changes from the core formula, fans of the series will feel right at home with Valkyria Chronicles 4. The game changes enough for the better and offers some degree of fresh air to the experience even after four entries. Any flaws that were present in previous titles still exist to some extent, holding it back from true greatness, but the general formula is more than solid enough and stays fresh despite the '4' in the title.

    The game puts as much emphasis on narration as it does on turn-based combat, but if you’ve ever played a JRPG or two, Valkyria’s story won’t surprise you – you already know by heart these character types and plot twists. Same goes for combat – it’s so similar to the first game, it’s embarrassing. [Issue #233, p.60]

It nails the old play style but has new mechanics (squads, grenadiers, new vehicles). There are also terrain effects as well (snow, fire, landslides) and new enemy unit types. Fights can be a tad too long IMHO but this game is the best in the series thus far. Expand

    If I have a twin, I will tell him to cover my tasks so I can sit down and stick with bullet force on freegames66 the entire day.

    Valkyria Chronicles 4 est une petite pépite pour les fans de la saga et les adorateurs des RPG Tactiques militarisés. Malgré des graphismesValkyria Chronicles 4 est une petite pépite pour les fans de la saga et les adorateurs des RPG Tactiques militarisés. Malgré des graphismes qui commencent à dater, le titre s'en sort avec une histoire passionnante et un gameplay totalement addictif. Il n'est pas rare de finir une bataille en se promettant qu'elle serait la dernière avant d'en entamer une autre. Une vraie réussite ! Expand
