  • 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.

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.

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.

A shallow, unintelligent waste of potential.

  • 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...

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.

No Detective Dream Here...

  • 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.

Should be a novel, a hidden rental game

  • Summary: First of all, the game has few scenes of actual animation, which I thought was just about appropriate for a videogame. I actually kind've liked playing the game for its good story and deep characters, but I felt like the game was too short and should have costed less.
