Summary: When Another Code: Two Memories (Trace Memory in the US) was released on the Nintendo DS back in 2005, it put Nintendo's then-fledgling handheld to work in some pleasingly inventive ways while telling an interesting story.

Pros: Un style graphique très agréable, Des nombreux personnages intéressants, Un scénario riche et captivant, Une durée de vie élevée pour le genre
Cons: Une quantité de texte qui en rebutera certains, Pas de doublage., « Il y a une chaise. »
