DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is one of the most distinctive murder mystery games on the market.
The interesting characters, unusual aesthetic and action/puzzle fusion make it unlike anything else on the market.
In the end, it still scratches the same kind of itch as Phoenix Wright and other visual novel games.
It's an enjoyable romp with a cast of silly but likeable characters, and the title straddles the line between serious and ridiculous.
It doesn't always work, but it works often enough to keep you engrossed in the game.
It has its share of flaws, and the action-based gameplay doesn't benefit the game much.
If you're a fan of visual novel games or are looking for a Sony system equivalent to the Phoenix Wright series, DanganRonpa hits the target. 8.0/10
