A Tale of Two Timelines

RPGamer
31 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Truthfully, I had no idea what, precisely, to expect when I loaded up Radiant Historia . The game's pedigree and potential inspiration come from so many different sources that it was hard to guess what the title had in store.

Radiant Historia (Nintendo DS) Review

Cubed³
26 June 2011
  • Summary: Too many brilliant Nintendo DS RPGs have never seen a release outside of Japan and those that did were also often only localised for the North American market. Europe still got plenty, but only a fraction of what could have been released.

Radiant Historia

Family Friendly Gaming
9 June 2011
  • Excerpt: It was a very long road to getting a review of Radiant Historia in Family Friendly Gaming. We had decent levels of coverage of Radiant Historia before it was released. We were looking forward to reviewing it. But a copy never arrived - which is extremely rare for us.

Review – Radiant Historia

videolamer
27 May 2011
  • Conclusion: I don’t think the bad parts of Radiant Historia outweigh the good, but I do think they keep it from being a classic. If you’re at all interested in seeing what this genre is still capable of achieving, you need to play this. Just don’t expect it to last all the way to the finish line.

Chrono Trigger's Spiritual Successor?

GameCritics.com
24 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Fans of Chrono Trigger , rejoice! At long last there's another deep and engaging Japanese role-playing game (JRPG) that makes use of time travel. Radiant Historia , brought to us by the fine folks at Atlus, may be the most perfect spiritual successor to Square's classic game—yes, even moreso than...
  • Pros: Figuring out how to change a timeline in order to save one of your allies from permanent death.
  • Cons: Skipping through the same story scenes for the fifth time.

  • Summary: Impressive effort with a few noticeable problems holding it back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth most people's time and cash. How we score: The Destructoid Reviews Guide

Radiant Historia (DS) - Review

VGChartz
30 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Time travel can be a very fickle beast. It's a feature uncommonly explored and when it is -save for Chrono Trigger and a handful of other titles -it doesn't quite pan out in a favorable manner. Atlus, however, looks to combat these odds.

  • Summary: on whether or not I was a fan of JRPGs, and I think 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 then there are times where they seem to break out of nowhere and impress the hell out of me.

  • Conclusion: Radiant Historia is an enjoyable 40-50 hour RPG in the mold of Suikoden. It's great to see another JRPG use Time Travel as a game component, as the idea hasn't really been used since Chrono Trigger.

This Is the Time

RPGamer
20 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Radiant Historia is not alone in its use of time travel as a plot device, but the game goes about its temporal movement in a good way. That would mean little if the rest of the game was unappealing, making it fortunate that Radiant Historia demonstrates several interesting gameplay aspects along...
