IGN: Jake Hunter Detective Story: Memories of the Past Review

IGN writes: "So, if you couldn't tell by this point, I've come away impressed. Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles was a bit of a flop, and rather than sweep that failure under the rug and forget about it Aksys Games took a rare second chance on the same design. But Memories of the Past proves to be much more than a re-tooled reboot of Detective Chronicles -- it's a packed-to-overflowing, feature-filled product that does the introduction of Jake Hunter to America right.

The writing is spot-on, the cases are compelling and the extras are abundant. And it's a great value, priced at ten bucks less than what most DS games go for these days. Adventure gaming fans, particularly those who've enjoyed the cases of ace attorneys Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice, should introduce themselves to Jake Hunter. He's the new private eye in town". (Jake Hunter Detective Story: Memories of the Past, Nintendo DS) 7.9/10
