The true misery of Valkyria Revolution is how much of the series’ roots show through, and how much Revolution itself doesn’t know what to do with them. The qualities that defined earlier Valkyria games are mostly vestigial, but Revolution doesn't present anything strong enough or distinct enough to replace them. What it does do often directly conflicts with those legacy bulletpoints, making a game that feels like a bland timesink at its best and a fractured mess at its worst.
It pretty much takes everything that was good about the prior games and just throws it out of the window, replacing it with tedium and banality. It feels very cheap too, with the lack of meaningful side content, facial expressions and decent storytelling making it seem unfinished. Honestly, I really wanted to like Valkyria Revolution but I couldn’t. There’s not really a lot for fans of Valkyria Chronicles to like about it. It’s pretty much inferior in every way.
Valkyria Revolution tells a decent tale of war, but the strength of that story is dulled by overlong, boring, and poorly animated cutscenes. It sacrifices the unique historical setting and art style of the Valkyria Chronicles series proper in favor of generic JRPG elements that fail to leave a strong impression, and its hack-and-slash combat offers little in the way of strategy and ruins its own flow with an poorly matched magic system.
