The soaring orchestral score by Motoi Sakuraba is wonderful, while the voice work is decent enough. I couldn't decide whether I preferred the Japanese or English VO, so my advice would be to try out both.
Elysium's rendition of Valhalla and Midgard are nice and detailed, although the art and design might not be to everyone's tastes. On PS5, the hardware never breaks a sweat, and, indeed, this looks like something that primarily belongs on PS4.
Fast-paced and immediate combat make Valkyrie Elysium an always-enticing thing worth dipping into, while exploration and a sprinkling of RPG depth help to keep the experience engrossing across its 15-20 hour runtime.
Nine expansive main quests, loads of subquests, collectibles, player upgrades, a training ground, and four different endings ensure that Valkyrie Elysium is suitably broad in scope. The only downside is that it gets a bit grindy and repetitive towards the end.
A very achievable Platinum that covers almost all of the requisite bases, with an endgame that enables you to mop up anything you've missed. Completing the game on hard difficulty might prove a bit pesky, mind.
