The Empire has set its sights on invading a small neutral country called Gallia, situated in the middle of the two superpowers territories, in an attempt to secure invaluable natural resources. Within this struggle a hero named Welkin, and his fellow soldiers of the Federation’s 7th Platoon, are fighting back against the invasion and the Empires attempts to unify the continent under its power.

During the ensuing war the Federation discovers that the Empire possesses a secret weapon, known as the “Valkyria” – an ancient race with special powers thought to exist only in legends. With this new discovery the fate of the Federation’s ability to turn the tide of the war, and the hope for a better future, hang in the balance.

 

GAMEPLAY

Together with Alicia Melchiott and the rest of your squad, you fight against the Empire to protect all of Gallia from their invasion. There are 5 types of units in this game. The Scouts, Shocktroopers, Lancers, Engineers and Snipers. You are given the privilege of arranging your squad. You can put up to 20 units in your squad but in battle, most of the time you can only bring 9 (commander included – Welkin).

In battle you can bring anyone from your squad with your commander, Welkin, riding a tank. Unfortunately, you can not remove Welkin on all of the battles but seriously… who would remove a tank in your set of units, right?

 

 

REVIEW

The game is seriously good. The story is top notch and the art is really good. The battle is really long though, each battle ranges from 20 mins to an hour except for the first few battles.  The keyboard and mouse controls are good, but you need to increase mouse sensitivity to achieve acceptable inputs. It is fully voiced in English and Japanese. To tell you the truth, I most of the time didn’t like English dub because English voice acting sucks (my personal opinion) but in this game having the game in English is acceptable. This game is one of the best strategy RPG that I have played in PC.

REVIEW

The game is fun and unique. As the description state, this game is a 3rd person arena fighting game. You fight using your selected character, each with their own set of skills and magibots. The magibots are your minions that follows you around in the arena and do their own set of skills via Formation command, depending the commanded formation magibots can block, attack, charge and many more while increasing your character stats (Atk, Def, etc.). All the characters are well voiced and the battle is fast paced. You can do combos with your normal attack, charged attack, energy attack (range shots) and charged energy attacks.

Most fighting games have special attacks (super attacks)… well in this game there are 2 types of special attacks. The Over Drive and Chain Drive. The Over Drive boost all your abilities and pressing the Over Drive button while Overdrive is active will active your Overdrive move but you can’t activate your Overdrive move if you are hit at least once from the time Over Drive is activated (not sure, but that’s what I experienced when playing the game). The Chain Drive will also boost all of your stats and be immune from knockbacks and hit effects (meaning even if a magibot attacks you while doing combo, your character will act as if nothing hits him). Now for the fun part, if you activate Overdrive and Chaindrive together, Ultimate is will be activated. While in Ultimate Mode, all of your stats are significantly increased and your character will look a bit more different (cool looking) and gives you the ability to use your ultimate move that deals massive damage by pressing the Chaindrive button.
