Summary: I'm about 24 hours into this game, Ch. 6 of the Standard History (not sure what chapter in the AH). I have generally been very impressed with this game. I am playing it on a 3DS XL, and the graphics are a little grainy, but still quite nice. The music fits the game nicely - not exceptional, but more than adequate.
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.
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. I would recommend this to anyone who likes rpgs and would like to add to their collection.
A unique jrpg that can be repetitive, but memorable.

Summary: This is basically a spiritual successor to Chrono Trigger. The animations are kind of dull, and the battles can get repetitive, but it is still a fun game, wight a creative story, and good challenge, with plenty of secrets. Highly recommended.
Summary: It's a really good game; I'd have liked it if there was a way to completely skip a cutscene, which I why I only gave it 4 stars, but other than that I find it really awesome. If you enjoy RPGs, you will love this game.
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 roadblocks. The writing is eloquent and engaging, and the characters are nicely fleshed out through their actions without extensive backstory (although there is some, of course).
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." The only choice involved is what path you go down first at the very start of the game. It feels more constrictive then anything I have played in recent memory. Pro: The battle system is fun to play around with.
Summary: Radiant Histora was recommended to me by a friend. I purchased the game for myself and found the game immediately enjoyable, completely approachable and extremely well developed. At first, I felt the combat system was a simply gimmick to stand out, but after a few combats my initial opinion was wrong. While it looks extremely simple (almost too basic), there is a level of strategy that runs throughout the system.
Summary: RH is possibly the best RPG on the DS, if not one of the best JRPGs ever. Even though the mechanics have some minor flaws and the story is at points predictable it is overall very well balanced and well written and without a doubt a great experience for all genre fans.
