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!
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.
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.
Summary: I decided to give this game a go after a friend let me try it out. I was immediately intrigued within the first few minutes of playing it. Radiant Historia centers on the main character Stocke, who serves as an officer in the SpecInt department for the country of Alistel.
