Summary: Well it's an Atlus RPG, so you have to go in with realistic expectations. It has a cool early-Final-Fantasy style overworld. The combat is similar to Megaman Battle Network, with the 3x3 tile, but only for enemies, and that it's turn based encounters.
Summary: I bought this because I wanted to try an Atlus game before dropping $50+ on Persona Q. Yes I realize it's very old. Pros 1. Really interesting story line. Love the time travel bit, the characters are likeable, and it has the classic fantasy RPG vibe. 2. The battle system is interesting and fun.
Summary: I honestly had doubts about getting this. Even after hearing so many good reviews on it. The reasons you ask? $30.00 on a Steam sale is 4-5 games. Even still I went against my better judgement and picked this up. I am sure glad I did. This has entertained me for well over 30 hrs of game time.
Trust the glowing reviews. Very epic story driven game and easily a new favorite game of mine.

Summary: Trust these positive and glowing reviews. Just like Fire Emblem Awakening, the reviewers are spot on with their ratings. This game has a GORGEOUSLY EPIC soundtrack, great characters and a battle system classic Jrpg fans will love. Go back and rewrite the past to ssave your kingdom..
Summary: Radiant Historia instantly pulled me in, and kept me interested for the entire 40+ hour journey. (My completed time was 47:30.) The story is fantastic, and it has the best use of time travel in arguably any game, including Chrono Trigger. (Gasp! Blasphemy!
Summary: When I ordered Radiant Historia back in February 2013 I'll readily admit that I played for only a few hours before I let it, and my 3DS, sit and gather dust. At the time the cheapest new copy of the game I could get was $70, so I was expecting much more from the game.
Radiant Historia is the 21st century's Chrono Trigger, and may be better.

Summary: Turn-based strategy, an enthralling plot, time travel mechanics as enjoyable as (or better than) Chrono Trigger's, plot twists, replay value, sidequests; these are just a few of Radiant Historia's amazing features.
Summary: I was browsing for new games when I came across this, and watched some Let's Plays on Youtube before making my decision. This is a fun, new RPG with well developed characters and an authentic "military" feel despite being so heavy in the fantasy department.
