Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Finally a Turbo game that blows away the Genesis version of the same name! Great music and cool cinema displays are definitely a step above the cartridge version. I don't like the mixed TurboChip/CD soundtrack, but it still sounds impressive. My one complaint is that it's easy.
Video Game Den
Valis III is like that, tons of fun moments and tons of irritating ones. At the end, you either love it or leave it, but I personally think it is one of the best (if not the best) Valis game out there, with an incredibly rich storyline and an immersive universe to delve into.
The Video Game Critic
Idiotic stuff like that makes me want to slap an F on the game and be done with it. Valis 3 is also plagued by cheap and mandatory hits, making the game far more difficult than it should be. The soundtrack is of high quality, but the voice acting is vomit-inducing. Check out this dramatic exchange. Boss: "My intro was a bit flashy, but do you like it?" Yuko: "Why do you do something like that?" Boss: "Hey, ask your sword, Yuko." This game is a mess. If you have a choice, stick with the Genesis version.
