At its core, it is an Action RPG, but throw in some Zelda puzzles and combat taken from a fighting game and this is what you get. But it all works perfectly ... Read More »

Let’s deal with a major negative before we look at what’s great about the game: Valley kicks its story off with some of the ... Read More »
