They are very different kinds of games. It all comes down to what you prefer playing in general. Valkyria is an action tactic game, and is the kind of game that you don't see often because of lackluster sales even though it gets glorious reviews.

Resistance 2 is an insane multiplayer game, but with very little to do in single player... Plus when Killzone 2 gets here, I expect the number of players to take a big drop.

Resistance 2 for sure. I loved Resistance 1, and looks like the wifey may have it under the tree for me!

I have both, and they are both very good games. I would recommend Valkyria Chronicles over Resistance 2 though - It's a rather unique game, excellent blend of turn based strategy and real-time movement/combat, and is pretty lengthy. However, it should come down to your genre preference - both are shining examples of their genre, so really depends on whether strategy rpgs or fps's float your boat

Very little to do in single player? Did you play it. I haven't played a game that was that much fun in a long while, with the exception of Gears 2.

Don't listen to this guy dude. R2 is amazing in both online, and single player.

Does Resistance 2 have Keyboard / Mouse support?
post #10 of 17
valkyria chronicles, simply because if you wait too long, you'll never be able to find it again.

they'll keep cranking out copies of resistance 2, but VC's availability decreases each day.
