  1. The spiritual sequel to Shadow Of Memories has the same time travelling intrigue but less gameplay.

    It's a missed opportunity, because we like the story as well as the sharp and colorful graphics, but hunting for clues had us falling asleep.
  3. It truly is the story which carries Time Hollow. The gameplay itself is shallow, overly repetitive, and offers no challenge that a six year old couldn’t overcome.

Out of curiosity I replayed the whole game, despite remembering being quite disappointed. And I can't say I'm still that impressed.

    The game's story is good but it has hiccups, especially when trying to explain itself. The character is a bore, barely feeling impressed or anything, while the other characters are also quite forgettable. Unfortunately the best characters are Derek and Kori, since a lot of the game is around them. Not even the villain is remarkable.. It's also extremely short: I clocked in less than 4 hours.

    Still, it's alright for itself: give it a try if you find a copy.

    I love it! It was fun to play, beautiful anime style, the soundtrack is awesome, and I wasn't bored at all! If you play adventure games, I love it! It was fun to play, beautiful anime style, the soundtrack is awesome, and I wasn't bored at all! If you play adventure games, like the Phoenix Wright: Ace attorney-series, Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and games like that, you MUST play this game too! And the video at the beginning is just awesome.
