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...only, will your ending be a good or bad one? Your decisions will lead you to an ending...but you never can know just which one it is. Highly recommend!
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!) Very early in the game, you come to a choice, and it splits the timeline in two.
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. If there is anything I can say about this game aside from the description I just gave; it is that you should purchase it. If you enjoy classic Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, turn-based strategy, RPG's, etc...
Summary: This game is an excellent example of what made the Super Nintendo, Sega Saturn and PlayStation era so special. It is a traditional RPG quest game with very lovable characters, a deep storyline and a simple-yet-incredibly-deep combat system. Graphically, it looks amazing, like something one would play on the Sega Saturn back in the 32-bit era, with rotations, well-animated sprites, colourful settings and detailed character portraits.
