Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles (DS) - Review

16 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Point and click adventure games, as well as their Japanese brothers visual novel style games, are one of my favorite genres in all of gaming. I remember getting an issue of Nintendo Power right as the DS was getting released that had a trailer DVD with it. A few friends of mine and I decided to watch it and were treated to videos of games like Trace Memory and Phoenix Wright.

Expert Review

30 March 2009
  • Excerpt: I am always wary of Japanese video games with overly Americanized localizations. Even with the majority of bases covered in terms of dialogue, there are always ways in which the game screams "I'm not American." Take Revelations: Persona for instance. Sure, the English text set the game in the Anytown, USA city of Lunarvale and followed the adventures of students from the local public high school, but in what local public high school in the US do students wear uniforms?

Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles DS

Hardcore Gamer
30 November 2008
  • Summary: So far, the DS has let us play as lawyers and attorneys, but what about the other part of the justice system? Hasn’t everyone played through an Ace Attorney game and wondered what it would be like to play as Gumshoe? While we may never know, Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles presents a pulpy alternative.

  • Conclusion: Details for Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles are insanely scarce, hence the length of this article. The man whose name can be taken from the game's title runs a detective agency all by his lonesome. You'd be justified to believe that this is a Phoenix Wright knock-off, but whether that's a good or bad thing remains to be seen.
