Time Hollow

Extra Ammo
7 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Hey everyone, this is my review of the totally amazing game Time Hollow. Time Hollow is a Japanese Visual Novel in lieu of Phoenix Wright developed for the Nintendo DS by Konami. If you are not a fan of text/story heavy games then this is definitely not the game for you and I suggest stopping here. If you are like me however and enjoy a great story woven into the tapestry of a video game then carry on reading!

Konami's New Interactive Novel Is Hardly Hollow

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Time Hollow, like any of the interactive novel titles on the DS, is a tough game for which to issue a blanket recommendation. In one sense, it isn't much of a game at all – you generally just go from place to place and scroll through text. On the other hand, elements of classic adventure games are alive and well, including an intriguing story and some compelling puzzles dealing with time manipulation.

Time Hollow (DS) - Review

VGChartz
6 March 2009
  • Excerpt: By Alex Machuca Imagine if you will, that tomorrow when you wake up, you possess the ability to alter your past. You accidentally overcook breakfast? Not anymore, simply open a small portal to the past and take the pan off of the burner so that breakfast was never burnt to begin with. Later at work you then accidentally spill your ridiculously hot coffee all over your keyboard.

Review – Time Hollow

videolamer
5 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Time Hollow moves briskly because of its lack of difficulty and focus on plot, and is compelling despite the flaws in its storytelling. While I would like to see several of the characters appear in any future installments of the game, I hope the developers would be a little more creative in their use of what could be a great mechanic.

Expert Review

RPGFan
7 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Along with the PC, Nintendo's DS is the platform of choice for graphic adventures, particularly Japanese adventure games. The visual novel style of graphic adventure has found life on the DS in America via games such as Ace Attorney (be it Phoenix Wright or Apollo Justice), Hotel Dusk: Room 215, and the vastly underrated Lifesigns: Surgical Unit to name a few. One game that almost completely slipped under the radar is Time Hollow.

  • Summary: It’s difficult to review a completely passable albeit uninspired game. There’s nothing you can really grab ahold of and harp on for paragraphs on end. Conversely, there is no diatribe to be launched into about how other games should take note of how this specific game has changed what was previously thought to be possible in games as we know them.

Not A Hollow Experience

GIN
12 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Time Hollow is exactly that: a hole in time. Go figure. But seriously at first the game felt like Quantum Leap without the mullet-headed, time-jumping hero (thank God!). However, this game is a great hit for Konami! Time Hollow opens at the title screen with a male voice confidently declaring the title, "Time Hollow!" I thought the robotic/horror voice at the title screen of Resident Evil on PSOne was funny. This guy has definitely received the torch!

Time Hollow (DS) Review

Vooks
19 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Time is a funny thing to play around within the entertainment industry. On one hand, it offers countless possibilities for many engrossing storylines, and an opportunity to compel the viewer to play/watch on to discover more. On the other hand, it can serve to be very confusing to the average audience. Time Hollow is an exclusive adventure game designed specifically for the Nintendo DS.
