Valkyria Chronicles 4 isn’t a continuation of the story of the first action game focusing this time on the Federation armed forces in the fight against the invasion of the Empire.
As the first title, the soldiers who formed the group around the tank Hafen are skill mates.
How they joined the army and the reasons behind the decision who took them.
The relationship between the characters, their evolution and, of course.
Their transformation is the hidden messages of the game.
Despite the adverse and dangerous times, courage, friendship and, not least, diligence.

Which fulfill their obligations, basic qualities that will help you overcome any obstacles.
The game seems to be sometimes too naive reality of war, but considers this issue with seriousness, which is capable in the context of fantastic stories.
Each minor character has its past, each weapon its qualities, and each of them its role.
Everything is so well calculated that every part of the game seems like a puzzle placed in its place.
Your only role is to point a finger at the victory. It sounds somewhat simplistic.
But it can be extremely difficult if you do not take into account every such “piece” that you have at your disposal
The main method of any confrontation is a battle review, called Command Mode.
Of course, here you have several teams that allow you to order and move characters to achieve a goal.
Based on several points that are specific to each of them, you can move and perform certain actions.
You can attack the enemy, you can heal or, depending on the class of the character, you can repair the tank, or you can heal others.
As soon as you finish your command posts, the rotation will begin, and in this case you can be attacked or even lost soldiers if you are not careful.
This turn-based system forces you to be extremely careful.
Leave your soldiers in a raincoat, be extremely effective in eliminating enemy troops.
And, last but not least, be creative in placing your units on the battlefield and combining your chosen classes.
In addition, your units are extremely important.
And the equipment in their equipment will greatly affect the outcome of each meeting.
All these are management issues that you decide at Headquarters, a place where you will spend a lot of time grinding each part of this challenging puzzle.
The headquarters includes three main sections, namely the Command Room, inspection and control of troops.
Training Field for training each class (Scout, Shocktrooper, Lancer, engineer, sniper, grenadier).
And R&D Facility for the development of new equipment ( guns, machine guns, grenades, mortars, anti-tank missiles, uniforms) and new parts for tanks.
In addition to these three, the plaque allows the acquisition of new orders.
As a result of conversations with different characters and chambers is a kind of compendium for everything found in the game.
From weapons characters and specific terminology, plus news from Federation newspapers, statistics or textbooks.
It should be noted that in this game the emphasis is on textbooks.
There are textbooks for everything,including for the section of a private office.
You will need patience in this regard,but how they grumble and it is useful to prove these textbooks.
Especially for those who are not familiar with game mechanics.
The story is based on the leading character’s diary and is divided into chapters, which, in turn, contain episodes.
You have hands and squadrons of history that complement the main plot.
Sub-stories that bring past characters, or simply battle fights based on the main script.
You can return at any time to rewrite any scenario to get the best result and, last but not least, more money and experience.
You will need money to upgrade equipment and part of the reservoir.
As well as experience in training units and moving them to the level.
Battles are becoming more and more complex and you should be a step ahead, investing in your troops.

In their equipment in the tank and in the orders you are capable of on the battlefield.
In the middle of the action,every good decision is rewarded,while each mistake is severely penalized.
As simple as it may seem, it may be complex, especially when you have already made a number of mistakes and you have to remove several units from the battlefield to introduce others in an attempt to recover land and to finish the script on time.
Of course, besides all the words of praise, we can mention a few drawbacks.
Such as splitting each episode,a slightly exaggerated look of the game.
Many of these sequences can be combined to not fragment an action.
Then a huge number of side characters and the relationship between them do not allow you to quickly manage your troops.
Especially since each of them has its own preferences for other characters.
But keeping track of all these relationships is extremely difficult and takes up most of your time.
Placing battles and the main action in the background.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 is therefore a worthy follower of the first game in the series and I assure you that you will be happy to return to your battlefields.
We have a story with plenty of surprises, a message to the conflict.
Values we all should value, and last but not least.
The optimism that we sometimes should have in our approach trials and obstacles.
