In this CD game which takes place before all of the other Valis titles, you get to learn more about the Warrior Valis' origin. This side-scrolling platform game is essentially like all of the other titles in the series, but since it was the last released, the graphics are the best of the bunch. Play control is right on the money, and the music and sound-effects are great. In regards to the cinemas, if you've played the other games, the fact that everyone is speaking Japanese will matter very little. The animation is so well done that you are easily able to infer what is taking place a majority of the time. Definitely a must play for Valis fans!
