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: Time travel has been a part of RPG storylines for many generations, dating back to SaGa 3 (known as Final Fantasy Legend III outside Japan) on the original GameBoy, although the one RPG that perhaps made the concept famous in the genre was perhaps Chrono Trigger on the Super NES.
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.
Story, gameplay, presentation drew me in. Time Travel did not.

Summary: I played only Six hours. The story instantly caught me. The Strategic fights drew me in. However, the constant switching between different time periods during the adventure made me re-watch Cut-scenes. For example, I came to this mine and had to make a choice of two ways of handling the situation.
Summary: Likeable characters, great story and twists, and time travel done well. You owe it to yourself to get this great ds game. It also really helps that the characters are designed appropriately and are not a bunch of bishies with scantily clad women who look well underaged. A must buy for the ds
Summary: Radiant Historia is a solid RPG which has a great story and characters. Although some claimed it was like Crono Trigger, I find it similar but not like my beloved Cronotrigger. It is a good game with engaging story and ability to replay past scenes but taking different routes.
Summary: I purchased this to re-experience the older RPGs I played as a kid, and was not disappointed. The premise of time travel has been played out before, but this game brilliantly weaves it in, smoothly transitioning from event to event with timelines easily traversed to fulfill quests or bypass...
Summary: I have not played this game to the end. Cons: That being said I have not detected anything that feels like choice in this game. You play for a while and then the game says "Stop! Go back in time now and do something.
Summary: An old school style RPG that has more twists and turns through time than Chrono Trigger. It's a tale of countries at odds with a cause and effect back and forth between alternate timelines and realities. The game is fun, the combat is pretty decent but mostly isn't super challenging. I won't lie..
