Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
Persona 4 and Phoenix Wright's baby
If you like either of these games, you will find the perfect mix here. Even if you haven't played them, if you like visual novels it's perfect. The social aspect of this game is simple and satisfying. The trials are done with so much more finesse than they should be. Plus the story is probably one of the best ones I've seen in a video game. The only problems with this game are minor things. If you have a vita and don't have this game then why do you have a vita?
What makes Danganronpa immensely satisfying is how it consistently toys with your expectations. With excellent writing, well-developed characters. It’s exciting and has an uncanny ability to leave its players slack-jawed at the sights of the unraveling plot points. After all, this is a game about a maniacal teddy bear forcing high school students to kill each other; how could it not be good?
Must buy for JRPG fans
This is a great game. Anyone that owns a Vita owes it to themselves to play this game. Any fans of the Phoenix Wright series will enjoy this game.
This game is really amazing. It starts off really cliche (well, as cliche as a game this crazy can be), but it shatters your expectations when roles you imagine people will have switch. Please buy this game so we can get the second one localized.
This Game Is Going To Surprise You
DanganRonpa is an anime game of 16 students trap in a school and must escape the school by killing someone without being caught. when a murder has accured, a school trial will commence after you investigate the crime scenes.
This game is absolutely flawless in my opinion. It has a fantastic story, well written characters with diverse traits and personalities, and wonderful gameplay that just about anyone could enjoy. I've read Oneronen's let's play of the game, as well as watched the anime adaptation and played the game myself, enjoying the story and going deeper into the characters and plot with each run. It's a sad, but also flawless story but also has funny moments throughout the entire game so you won't feel too depressed playing it. Many of the characters in the large cast are also very relatable, and you can understand how they feel in any given situation. It's a wonderful game; make sure your favorite characters don't die.
PLEASE BUY THIS GAME
i've played dangan ronpa and sdr2 in the original japanese psp versions, and they're both masterpieces. i held back on buying RE:LOAD since it was getting localized, and my wallet is burning a hole in my pocket right now just to preorder it. this game is a MASTERPIECE, and i definitely recommend it. like if i had to give a score it would be 1000000/10 PLEASE buy this game oh my god
I've watched/read the Let's Play of this game by orenronen on the Something Awful forums and have nothing but positive things to say about this game! I am thrilled it is having a US release! The game is full of twists and turns and can be hilarious. It definitely pokes fun at itself sometimes, but it can be serious as well. All around it's a really wonderful game I would highly recommend to anyone!
I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH
this game is one of my favorites EVER. i've read let's plays of this one and the second game (which was just as good if not BETTER than the first one like wow), i've played the first 3 chapters of it, and i've watched the anime version of it. the character development is wonderful, and it's great to see more facets of the characters as the game goes on. i love the characters so much. i've noticed for me that the gameplay could get slightly boring when nothing exciting was happening, but that was only because i've read it before. it plays a lot like an interactive murder-mystery novel, and you take the place of the protagonist, who has to figure out who was the murderer each chapter. when someone dies, you have to conduct an investigation with the help of the other characters, and you collect evidence on the murder. after that, a "school trial" begins, and you have to listen to the statements of all the students to figure out the culprit. it's mostly a giant cutscene, but is peppered with various minigames that take a lot of thought and analyzation of the evidence. it's the highlight of each chapter, and very exciting and interesting!! sometimes, when you think you have it figured out, you may find out you were completely wrong. if i had to rate the game, i would rate it 9.5/10 or so, probably! the only things i don't like about it are that it doesn't have too much replay value (unless you like things like rereading books or rewatching movies,) and there were two small inconsistencies that i can think of. it also has free time events, where you can choose which characters to speak to when everything is calm and happy. you get to see more of their personalities, as well as get special abilities to use in the trial minigames. however, if you want to see all of them, you have to replay an ENTIRE CHAPTER. it's very foolish, and i don't like it one bit. it was changed in japan when the first and second game were rereleased together just a month or two ago. thats probably the biggest issue, and it really bothers me. however, the game's story is AMAZING, the characters are very intelligent and easy to fall in love with, and the gameplay is interesting and thought-provoking. i love it, and i can't recommend it enough!
as some who played the psp game, this game is awesome! the story is cool and the characters you meet really grow on you
the investigation scenes are pretty cool but the trials are way cooler cause you find info in other peoples word that dont match yours that you found from the investigation and you "refute" it
