Radiant Historia


I was questioned in my last review on whether or not I was a fan of JRPGs, and I think my track record will show that I am a fan of them. There are times where the genre goes through some stale products, like the recently reviewed Ar Tonelico Qoga, and...

An almost flawless game, Radiant Historia is everything I hope for in a modern-day portable RPG. Atlus and Index Corporation have potentially created a rival for Chrono Trigger in terms of story telling and quality.

Radiant Historia Review


The time travelling RPG has its ups and downs but in the end is worth picking up.

Engaging story with political depth and empathic characters, strategic and combo-based combat system, rummaging through time like a Choose Your Own Adventure novel

Jumping around the timelines is often jarring and repetitive, no mini-map

The time-traveling mechanic at the epicenter of this adventure can be as burdensome as it is intriguing, but most of Radiant Historia's faults are easily forgiven. In a genre often plagued by clich's and cutout characters, Radiant Historia's empathic...

My beloved Chicago Cubs are three outs away from forcing a divisional\r\n tie with the Cincinnati Reds. I’ve turned to Carlos Marmol and his \r\nfilthy slider to shut down the Dodgers. Only two runs have crossed the \r\nplate all game, both...

I'd like to travel to an alternate timeline where I hadn't yet experienced this game and do it all over again.

Fantastic non-linear gameplay and story ; Great combat system ; Stunning soundtrack

Character sprites are a bit plain ; Some mini-quests are obtuse

Sorry for neglecting this thread, guys. Been sick then I was at PAX. apdude, yeah there are moments where the game just gets obtuse. In retrospect I wish I had noted those in the review. I allude to them a bit, but it was in reference to the...

Imagine if you could change the future. What would you do differently? Would you warn yourself about certain events that have yet come to pass?

Compelling story ; Great combat ; Time travel is involved and well done ; Just a really polished game

Reliving the same dialog and cut scenes can get tiresome

Radiant Historia (DS) Review


We travel through time to bring you the ups and downs of Atlus' Radiant Historia, and hope to not screw up the space-time continuum in the process.

Radiant Historia is a new JRPG brought to us by Atlus, infamous for their Shin Megami Tensei, Trauma Center and Etrian Odyssey series'. Many critics have likened the game to Chrono Trigger which was released over 15 years ago by Square. Truthfully,...

Hop through time in a game that may make you think of a

At pivotal points, you’ll want to use the White Chronicle to return to a time where you had access to an inn, to let your party recuperate. Managing resources is important, as you’re out in the field for long periods. Battles are always stacked against...

Radiant Historia: Time-traveling of a different sort.

With its branching storylines and back-and-forth gameplay, Radiant Historia isn't for everyone, but if you're sick of other, more inane JRPG offerings available on the DS, this might be a good bet. Traveling through time makes for staggered...
