While I enjoyed the older Metroid games (especially the GBA ones), I would not consider myself a devotee of the "Metroidvania" genre; Dust - An Elysian Tail was the first game I played in years.

But still I enjoy it when a game does so many things right like Valdis Story:

The melee focused combat is highly rewarding as you learn to master the "Skill Cancel" ability and start to weave in magics to your combos. The exploring in the sunken city makes you backtrack for upgrades but never feels like it forces you to do so. While it does not look as gorgeous as Dust did, it is still charming with fluid animations and diverse looking zones.

The story starts of a bit weak, but the more cities you discover and lost crewmen you find the more compelling it gets. I like that the male protagonist (you can also play a female one and unlock others) is no knight in shining armor but more of a brutal anti hero - with a warm heart for his crew.

Valdis Story ist ein gutes Spiel für zwischendurch. Die Cartoon/Anime/Wasauchimmer-Grafik wird sicherlich nicht jedem gefallen, passt aber gut zum Spiel. Die Story ist auch ganz ok, auch wenn sich bekämpfende Engel und Dämonen nichts neues sind. Die Steuerung ist manchmal etwas anstrengend und widerspenstig, vor allem bei langen Sprungpassagen, funktioniert aber in der Regel problemlos und ist schnell gelernt. Die Gegner sind hübsch designed und super... schon bei den normalen Gegnern muss man teilweise kurz nachdenken und eventuell mal blocken aber die Bosse erfordern wirklich dass man sie beobachtet um herauszufinden wie ihre Mechanik funktioniert und man sie am sinnvollsten bekämpfen kann.

*SPOILER FREE REVIEW*

While reading this review I suggest you to hear this (and why not more) song, part of the soundtrack of Valdis Story: Abyssal City:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ziOAwqfJmU&list=PLCc8IB1G4YYplGOJkKdAbpSI0LulKn_Sb


Let's begin.


Valdis Story: Abyssal City is a 2D Action RPG "a la" Metroidvania style with some touch here and there of Beat em' Up, the story is quite interesting from the beginning to end though it never gets to deep or complicated but is good enough to keep you entertained trough the entire journey.


The game features some simple status and equipment customization nothing to deep luckly, everything is simple to get at first read.

The best part of the game is its gameplay simple but entertaining, you have two attack buttons (Normal and strong), 3 magic spells on ground and one on air with lots of enemy to tear apart, you can also guard/parry your enemies or dodge their attacks with "skill cancels" which let you cancel your combos to keep doing more or every action you make you can also escape from enemies attacks with it, though there isn't a great variety of enemies there are enough to keep the game far from boring.


There's also a lot of obtainables very well hidden, for some you'll need certain magics so backtracking is a must if you want to get stronger or you want a 100% completition rate

Something that has to be mentioned its the dificulty level, I played on God Slayer and it was brutal, even normal enemies could beat you badly if you fight lightly with them, so if you select over veteran, beware.

My only complaint to this game is the balance of the status, Luck and Agility are way much better than magic and strengh, some magics are almost useless and the level desing though not bad it could have been much better.


In short:


*The good:

Decent customization

Good and responsive controls

Solid Gameplay

Very good music

Good boss fights

*The Bad:

Unbalanced status

Unnecesary Magic spells

Charmeless level desing


Score:

84/100

I hope you like my simple review, if you found any grammar mistake please tell me so I can correct it and better my english

an astonishing metroidvania action platformer with fantastic visuals and an amazing soundtrack, but be warned: this game is HARD. you will rage and rage and rage and then hate the game and then love it 2 seconds later.

however, after mastering this game i can easily say this is one of the most exciting and rewarding titles I have ever played. you do not want to pass this game up.
