Valkyrie Profile is a story based on Norse mythology. This world is divided into two, the world of mortals, which is known as Midgard and the world of the gods known as Asgard, where Odin reigns as the Supreme Being and as Lord of the gods.
Our main character here is a valkyrie which is a goddess that serve Odin and is known as the chooser of souls from Midgard. The soul that she chooses becomes a knight for the gods and is called an einherjar. Valkyrie needs to recruit einherjars mainly because of the coming war of the gods against the creatures from hell.
When I first saw Valkyrie Profile being played by some player from the gaming station, I just can’t keep my eyes off of it because I was mesmerized by the fantastic battle scenes I have witnessed during the game play and the fantastic graphics that this game has. All the einjerhars you will find on this game has different special moves each that are devastatingly awesome. The graphics of the special magic that sorcerers have are great and it really rocks my world. In order to let the characters do their special techniques you have to do a hundred numbers of hits to one of your enemy that can be done by attacking your enemy with all of your four available characters on the battle scene. After that you can unleash the destructive move I was writing about. The character Lenneth, the valkyrie was drawn beautifully. I just fell in love with her beauty, wishing she was real.
The only problem with this game is that when you have to acquire an einherjar, you will have to wait a long period of time for most of the scenes to end before you can continue on with your journey and do battle again.
But this game still is one of the best games I have ever played on the Playstation one. I recommend it to everyone.
