Valkyrie Drive Bhikkhuni
Top Critic Average
Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni reminds me a lot of Senran Kagura Burst in that it feels like a rough draft of greater things to come. The combat is there, and the game looks amazing, but with an overabundance of uninteresting plot and a lack of original or compelling personalities, I found myself skipping over more of the game than I should have in order to keep myself entertained.
Valkyrie Drive is an incredibly fun and addictive game. While it doesn’t have the same crazy narrative or visual flair as a Devil May Cry or Bayonetta, it certainly shares their vibrant and satisfying combat. Valkyrie Drive is also a game very focused on fan service, and overt sexual themes. For some people, that will be a deal breaker, but if that’s right up your alley and you’re looking for the next great touchscreen supporting Vita classic, then look no further than Valkyrie Drive.
Thousands of enemies ready to fight... and to be undressed by our character. A hack'n slash full of sexual content but also deep and fun... and visually poor.

If you’ve been craving more Senran Kagura after Estival Versus or just want a fun brawler with anime titillation, Valkyrie Drive is for you.
Valkyrie Drive- Bhikkhuni is a one of those titles that takes awhile to get going, something that many folks will not be able to tolerate.
Valkyrie Drive -Bhikkhuni- is a fun foray into fan service and brawler style fighting brought down by poorly written story content and a lack of enemy variety.
A decent action game, but one weighed down by its terrible plot, crummy characters, and off-putting attempts to be racy.
However perverted Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni may be, it manages to hold out quite well as a fighting game. While the majority will be here undoubtedly for the ‘visual’ treats, which this game delivers flawlessly, it’s still good to know that the game has enough substance even after the jiggly boob novelty wears off. Valkyrie Drive may very well be a series we will hear from a lot more in the future.
This feels like the natural successor to Senran Kagura. The ecchi elements of Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni will be a deal breaker for many, but doesn't mean there isn't a quality game beneath the T&A. The combat is dynamic enough to make for addictive play, the story is decent, and most importantly of all, the fan service is fantastic. There are some problems—repetitive gameplay, long loading times and translation issues being chief amongst them—but they aren't noticeable enough to overly mar the final product.
Valkyrie Drive is the sort of game that you'll either love or loathe, and that's going to come as no surprise to those of us who fall into the category of the former. The important thing about this game is that despite what anyone has to say about the various stages of nudity, it's perfectly playable and delivers exactly what it sets out to – boobs, butt, and brawling.
