  • 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. Atlus' Radiant Historia is one of the latter titles.

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. Delivering Radiant Historia to us, a traditional RPG chock full o' enough space-time continuum frolicking to even get Doc Brown on the bandwagon, Atlus has struck JRPG gold in a time where original or quality titles are fading along with...

  • Excerpt: Radiant Historia offers all the best elements of a Choose Your Own Adventure book in game form. Players will make many important decisions along the way, but through the power of time travel, will always be able to—and often will have to—go back to see what would have happened if they’d chosen differently. Players control Stocke, an elite intelligence officer. On a routine mission, he and his subordinates are killed, but that’s just the beginning of the story.

  • Conclusion: Concept: A well-crafted RPG that feels like an unreleased classic from 1995 Graphics: Even with a few 3D environmental details, the visuals have a charming 16-bit vibe Sound: An excellent soundtrack, but a little more variety would have helped Playability: The battle system is deep without being complicated, making it easy to learn Entertainment: I’d recommend this to any fan of old-school RPGs Replay: Moderate

Radiant Historia (DS)

Nintendo Blast
6 September 2011
  • Summary: O jovem casal de irmãos, Lippti e Teo, encontra-se em um cenário triste. O mundo está à beira da morte, sendo rapidamente engolido pela areia. As duas crianças têm um poder que pode salvar o mundo, mas a coisa não é tão simples assim: embora eles possam voltar no tempo, eles próprios não podem alterar o passado.
  • Pros: História original, complexa e bem elaborada;, Sistema de batalhas inovador, dinâmico e que incentiva a estratégia;, Mecânica de viagem entre as linhas do tempo muito bem implementada;, Várias missões opcionais para cumprir;, Visual muito agradável, misturando elementos 2D e 3D.
  • Cons: Pouca liberdade para explorar os cenários;, A falta de mapas é frustrante.
