All in all, Valis IV is an unique game with a great storyline (all in Japanese though) served with gorgeous animated cutscenes - the gameplay is again a bit weak but a lot better than earlier games in the series. The truth is that it took me a little while to actually appreciate Valis IV in its intended glory. It really is a "love it or hate it" affair, which sadly applies to most of the other episodes of the Valis series.
