“Despite all your efforts, your friend got infected again.” That’s the message you’re greeted with when you boot up Vaccine. This is a game recently for the Nintendo Switch that doesn’t hide the fact it was heavily inspired by classic horror games like Resident Evil. From tank controls to static cameras to heavily pixelated 3D graphics everything about this game screams old school. Does it really stand up to the test of time however, or is it a relic of a bygone age?

My first real experience with the Valkyria franchise was the remake of the original game that was release last year. It was a beautiful experience that introduced me to a franchise I’d had interest in before, but hadn’t played. The turn based tactics married beautifully with cover mechanics and light third person shooting. I was immediately hooked. Fast forward to this year and I was again excited at the prospect of getting back into that world again with Valkyria Revolution. The experience hasn’t quite been the same.
Valkyria Revolution is a spin-off of the regular Chronicles timeline of games. It’s set in an alternate universe to an alternate universe where Europe is again at war. This time, though. It’s not all about guns and tanks. Swords and magic make an appearance. The game is set, as mentioned, in a universe that’s different from the already established universe. It takes place 100 years before the events of those games. War has broken out between two major powers. The Ruzi Empire is the dominate force in the area. Jutland wants to break free and rule themselves so they start, as the name suggests, a revolution. However, the events of the war are all controlled by a group of five people known in the story as the Traitors.
