"Smooth sprite animation, screen-filling spell effects, 2D backgrounds as good as the PlayStation can muster, and superb character art."
Yup even the reviews sounded different back when......
Valkyrie Profile ヴァルキリープロファイル is a role-playing video game, released for original Playstation on December 22, 1999 in Japan. An enhanced port of the game was later released for the PlayStation Portable under the name Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth.
Loosely based on Norse mythology, players assume the role of a valkyrie who recruits and prepares the souls of fallen warriors, before sending them to Valhalla for a final apocalyptic battle between the Æsir and Vanir: Ragnarok.
Several improvements were made to the English release of Valkyrie Profile, including more cinematics and the ability to adjust all characters' armor. Some editing occurred during translation, but visible blood, drinking, and sexual comments remain.
Badrach's smoking was cut out but the animation of him smoking after a successful battle remains, minus the cigarette.
Original Playstation discs range from $59 to a staggering $499 for a mint edition.
