Radiant Historia pulls its time-traveling mission off with a level of class rarely seen. Atlus' localization of the game is quite good. It helps that the source material is strong. And though the game trades in JRPG cliché it manages to sidestep the stink of fan service. The affair is elevated by lovely, retro-styled sprites, haunting and expressive music and a plot that puts a meaningful twist on the players decisions. For would-be JRPG adventurers this one choice is clear: you should play this game.
