Pretty good game...

  • Summary: Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles is a pretty good game. It has a nice soundtrack which switches according to the tone being set by the story and by the seriousness of any given situation. The characters are like-able as well. My only issues are that there are not enough twists and turns in the stories, shifty characters are easily identified and the "nice guys" are as well.

A Collection of Snazzy Detective Stories...

  • Summary: Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles is another game from the point n' click adventure game genre. However, it doesn't feature very many puzzles, and there is technically no way to get a game over screen, so many people refer to it as a "visual novel" instead of a point n' click game. Either way, this game is a pretty enjoyable experience. Graphics (score 8/10): The graphics look pretty good for the DS.

Just another interactive novel...

  • Summary: There's not much game play on your part at all. You just basically read what the screen shows and tap the A button constantly. This game is a cross between Unsolved Crimes and Hotel Dusk, both for the DS. In Jake Hunter, you choose which actions you want to do, but after you do that, it's just more reading. I love reading and mysteries, but this game was a little TOO much reading. It felt like forever until the next action or scene.

  • Summary: It wasn't as boring as others I had played. Objects www harder to find. Clues were harder to solve let me put some brain action into it. Good buy.

Good but wished it was better.

  • Summary: I'm a fan of action/adventure/puzzle games. As someone who lived in Tokyo in the past, I had an extra reason for wanting to check this out. The good news is that the game has three cases which are fairly interesting. The graphics are in color (as opposed to Hotel Dusk) with mixture of real photos and drawn scenes (with a tad of basic animation at the end of a case). I was really pleased to see that the maps and photos were of real places in Japan.

A shallow, unintelligent waste of potential.

Shaun Cooley, Amazon

  • Summary: The graphic adventure has made somewhat of a resurgence as of late, and one of the latest entries in the genre is Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles for the Nintendo DS. I would say that it doesn't live up to its full potential, but the fact of the matter is the game is so broken in so many ways that it really has very little potential to live up to.

Decent game

Brian Seligman "Adventure games rule.", Amazon

  • Summary: Honestly I bought this game on a whim. I had been hearing of the new adventure games out on the DS and well since I began playing video games Adventure games have been my favorite. Needless to say it was a great game. I will admit it has flaws. Some spelling errors are noticeable, also it is pretty short. I beat the game in about 5-6 hours. But that is how long they do advertise for game play.

No Detective Dream Here...

Kim Wallace, Amazon
13 May 2009
  • Summary: When I first heard about this game, I was excited for an interactive visual novel on the DS. I was even more pumped when I saw it involved a detective. I think everybody has had that secret fantasy of uncovering a case-- trench coat and all. Unfortunately, Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles doesn't provide you much satisfaction in living out the detective dream. It's a shame, too, because the game seemed to have so much potential.
