Deep, too, are the game's intricate dungeons. Each is packed with tons of difficult enemy encounters - though the game does have an "easy" mode for beginners - and trap-laden treasures to harvest. Between the puzzles and confusing layouts (even with the mini-map, which you can access at any time) you'll begin to see that this is an adventure that requires commitment.
Yes, Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth is an extremely deep game, and we're nowhere near done with it. Though it's dressed in the clothes of an action game - with Lenneth hopping and dashing her way through dungeons, and quick battles - it's actually a monster of a challenge. The demands of the gods of Valhalla, the enemies that populate the world of Midgard, and the unpredictable nature of your adventure add a sense of urgency to the already dark tale. If you're up for an RPG that will really tease you with its hidden riches, this is the one to keep an eye out for - handheld or no.
