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.
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: 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.
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.. I got about 80% of the way through it and lost interest. I feel like I may go back someday and finish it up, but for now I'm giving it a break.
Summary: If you like JRPGs and have a DS, you owe it to yourself to check this game out. It has a good story, unique characters, a simple yet good battle system and a memorable soundtrack. The game main feature is that it has a time travel mechanic in it. Early in the game, Stocke (the hero of the game) will obtain a book named the white chronicle.
Summary: I was looking for an RPG with complexity, but still familiarity and I stumbled upon this game. I had never heard of it, and the local GameStop folks looked at me oddly when I asked about it. The sheer lack of publicity around an interesting game reminded me of one of my favorite PS1 games, SaGa Frontier, so I had to get it. I don't regret it for a moment, but this may be the first game in years I actually sell back, despite it being fantastic. Let me explain...
Unique combat system, but the story is not for everyone

Summary: I am sure that others have covered the basic mechanics by now, so I'll spare anyone who reads my opinion from having to read them again. This is also spoiler free. COMBAT: This is the high point of the game for me. It's been a very long time since I played a handheld rpg that the dev team actually went out of their way to make combat more than a tedious chore.
