    hat is important to any great visual novel is that it has great writing, and the Danganronpa games are by turns hilarious, reflective, intense and jovial, the characters are all unique and interesting, and the twists and turns are often startling. Visual novels just don’t get better than these.

    Full of elaborate puzzles and mysteries, Danganronpa 1.2 Reload brings two excellent visual novels to PlayStation 4 for a great price.

    To the uninitiated to the wild world of Danganronpa, at the bargain price point only $39.99, there is really no excuse for any PS4 owner that isn’t severely adverse to the idea of reading to not pick this up. This collection features some of the most exciting and mind-bending adventures I’ve had the pleasure of reading, and it remains just as it was three years ago, highly recommended.

    Interesting pack for the PS4 which includes two of the best interactive novel games out there: Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc and Goodbye Despair.

    The Danganronpa series is concerned with the ongoing battle between the power of hope and the power of despair, and while these games are overlong and peppered with some less-than-stellar moments, the excellent plots give the player a sense of hope for the future of dynamic narrative in videogames. This is some of the best, most suspenseful, storytelling that I’ve ever seen attempted in the medium. While there’s no new content and the graphics remain unchanged from the Vita versions, 1.2 Reload is a great jumping-on point for fans of visual novels who’ve never experienced the series before.

    Controls move from the Vita to the PS4 easily, though gameplay itself seems better suited for a portable console. Gameplay is incredibly taxing at times — especially courtroom scenes — so it’s one you’ll likely play for short bursts rather than a marathon. Still, this is a great package for those without a PS Vita — Danganronpa is a must-play.

    While it won't win any awards for how it repackages the material, Danganronpa 1.2 Reload deserves attention for making two of the most captivating and mind-bending murder mysteries in any medium more accessible.

    Aunque la labor del port en sí sea algo chapucera (o simplemente, realizada sin mucho esfuerzo), ambos títulos gozan de tal calidad en todos yAunque la labor del port en sí sea algo chapucera (o simplemente, realizada sin mucho esfuerzo), ambos títulos gozan de tal calidad en todos y cada uno de sus apartados que sencillamente es imposible lastrar sus virtudes.

    Un cast de personajes memorable, un guión excelente (de locura si, pero excelente), situaciones de infarto, un apartado audiovisual único, pero sobretodo, el mayor merito de ambos títulos es que no solo están escritos con inteligencia, sino que demandan inteligencia al jugador/a, colocándolos en un escalón al que solo unos pocos han conseguido llegar.

    Te gusten o no las novelas visuales, tienes una cita obligatoria con Danganronpa 1.2 Reload. Y aquí tienes la excusa ideal para iniciarte en la saga y comprobar por ti mismo porque tiene tantos fans alrededor del mundo.

I found myself completely engulfed in the two games for aboutHaving never played Danganronpa before, this collection was mind-blowing for me. I found myself completely engulfed in the two games for about a week and couldn't seem to pull myself away. The games are a story of great intrigue and mystery, the likes of which I haven't experienced in similar investigation-style games. It's an absolute gem of a series, and I often recommend it to everyone I can. Expand

The only issues that I encountered with both Danganronpa games in this collection is that there were some minor control issues that I encountered as well as blurred cinematic scenes which could be because both of these were prior PlayStation Vita titles. Overall, I enjoyed my massive amount of time with this title and I would recommend for fans of visual novel games or any anime fan to not miss this title if you never played the original versions of these games.
