Radiant Historia – Perfect Chronology | REVIEW

The branching timelines in Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology makes the game feel like a choose-your-own adventure game, but while you’ll jump back and forth between the timelines the game doesn’t get too confusing. It’s actually a rather interesting mechanic that doesn’t feel like a gimmick and is central to the story and your progression through the game. The expanded 3DS port of the original Radiant Historia, released six years ago for the Nintendo DS, contains a great deal of...

While Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~ is listed as a puzzle adventure game, is really isn’t either. Chase is a very linear visual novel game with very limited interaction coming from the player. It’s mostly a visual novel with the illusion of choices. The game takes place at the Cold Case Unit of the 3rd...
