Craig Will at GoozerNation writes, "Time travel has always captured our imagination as a society. From classic movies (Back to the Future), books (The Time Machine and plenty of others) and television (Futurama or anything on the Sci-Fi channel). Video games have had a few series that have tried to put the time space continuum into our hands; Chrono Trigger instantly comes to mind as a game that did it right. The problem with time travel is that it's hard to do correctly or in a believable way; either there's going to be paradoxes or contrived plot points to overcome those paradoxes. Radiant Historia is an RPG that attempts to bring a brand new time traveling experience to the DS and although it is a sound entry from Atlus, it doesn't quite hit the mark."
