    "There are a lot of good reviews, but there are also some that say it doesn't run. Make sure your system can run it before you buy it. There's a return window, but try to make sure you can run it before you buy it."

    "Someone tried to tell me that this game was similar to Final Fantasy. However, I was very disappointed. I didn't feel like it lived up to that hype at all. The graphics were so-so, and the story line was only ok."

    "3.3 out of 5 stars isn't even enough for me to bother with the reviews. When you add in I was given an apple suggestion when I kind of hate apple this is a big no go."

    "This is very similar to the final fantasy games I used to play and enjoy. It really brings me back! Even though the graphics quality leaves something to be desired, the game is quite good and fun to play. It also is very long and kept me busy for many weeks."

    "I love a good role playing game. Final fantasy is my favorite and I was looking for something comparable. I tried The Last Remnant. tried so hard to like this, I enjoy JRPG's, I like square soft as a company, but this game was designed lazy. Because of how it was built you want to keep your BR low, which is maddening, to unlock several characters you need to fight monsters, which increases BR, I'm a perfectionist and it wasn't going to fly unless everyone was unlocked, I quickly realized keeping a low BR while unlocking everything was just too demanding and stressful. I want to be drawn in and love the game, not be upset and pull my hair out. Not recommended I quit :("

    "As someone who has been playing RPGs for over 20 years, including the Final Fantasy series, Valkyria Chronicles is a great new twist on an old idea. It moves the setting over to World-War II-era Europe; think FF meets Command & Conquer. It's a familiar setting but with enough uniqueness to keep even an old gamer like me entertained and surprised.
