I called my local Gamestop, The date given is the shipping, not the street date. But they're expecting their delivery between 10 AM and 3 PM tomorrow. I'm gonna go stalk there.

Would you all who play it let me know how it is? I'd hate to spend the money on it and end up hating it (I've done that a few times with DS games)! Thanks for any input!!!

I've got the game and I've made it up to Chapter 3 thus far. The game is less like Hotel Dusk and more like Famicom Detective Club Part 2, with a better Examine function then in Phoenix Wright. The character's aren't as diverse as the crew from Hotel Dusk, but they're hardly flat. Hotel Dusk was about people from all over meeting in one place. This game is more about people and events that occur as if it was something that you could easily experience, provided of course you had a pen that could cut holes in time.

I really like the action-reaction-preaction aspect of the writing. Do something here, and it'll cause even B, go in time un-cause event B and unforeseen event C occurs. When you first start playing you aren't instantly attached to any of the characters. So a person could pick up the game, play a bit and then become disinterested. But I've found that's actually an attractive facet. The futher you progress in the game, the more you more naturally learn about your environment and characters and the events gradually become better and better. If this was a book, I'd call it a real page turner.

Graphically the game is amazing. The Pause Menu has a beautiful gear clock interface, the physics/motion they threw in there are spectacular! And when you investigate scenes, instead of using a single image background like in Phoenix Wright, they use several, so when you pan left and right, a brick wall that's closer to you moves slower then the bushes. It's a very simple effect, but one that's impressive to watch.

The game is also littered with movies. I find it both annoying and amazing at the same time. Annoying because they're so often, but amazed because these are very VERY well animated.

Musically, the game reflects the mood of the game. The game isn't artificially animated like Phoenix Wright, nor Epic like Final Fantasy Tactics, so outstanding music would standout poorly. The music sets the mood quite well, and the main theme for time hollow is quite catchy, XD It's also funny to hear when it showed up in an unexpected place.


But I must say, anyone who plays the game should watch the trailer first. It gets the catchy music caught in your head before you start playing the game. And if you're worried about seeing spoilers in the trailer, then let me debunk that. You're going to watch a longer version of the trailer as soon as you start a new game.

I don't know how far I am in the game, but so far I'd recommend it to anyone. But if you plan to get it you should act fast, the gamestop I went to to pick that title up, and Wii Fit for my brother for Christmas, only had one copy that wasn't claimed by a reserve.

^ Beat me to it. I'm not sure how much it's like FDCII, but the feel in general reminds me of Trace Memory a bit. I'm on Ch. 4, done with 3.

They seem to have, plus the videos, a lot of sprites too, which is really nice. I hate games where they get lazy with sprites. The parallax backgrounds are neat as well.

I'd recommend it a lot.

(Also, there should be a separate topic for Time Hollow, right...?)

I'm in the process of ripping the site, I have to say, Konami is much more interested in keeping their web files hidden then Capcom. There's a nice collection of art, sound effects, FLVs, and a decent selection of music.
http://hobohodo.court-records.net/rips/ ... oMusic.zip

Here's a fake Track listing, as the files were all origionally named BG01.mp3, If a track is missing, that's because it doesn't exist, at least in the same way I found these tracks on the website.

Track 1: Pause Menu
Track 3: After School
Track 6: Something Up?
Track 11: Come Quick! Someone's hurt!
Track 12: The Other Pen Holder
Track 16: The Girl Time Forgot
Track 17: Time Digging
Track 18: Chronos: Keeper of Time
Track 21: Overworld
Track 22: Techno Something
Track 23: Time to Reflect

Later I'll see about uploading images and soundeffects and whatever else I find.

Okay, here come Wooster.

http://hobohodo.court-records.net/rips/ ... w_FLVs.zip
This would be all the in game movies that show in the Flash Game. Also in the Rips File.

http://hobohodo.court-records.net/rips/ ... w_Site.zip
Here is all that I was able to steal from the Site. And I mean everything, except maybe some music, and whatever's in the rips.

http://hobohodo.court-records.net/rips/ ... ffects.zip
Soundeffects. My Gosh there are so many different walking sound effects it's insain. Also of note, there's the bell chime and the school ambiance in this batch.

http://hobohodo.court-records.net/rips/ ... w-Rips.zip
You wanted sprites? You got them. Except my eyes are bugging out from the very inefficient ripper I was using. So I didn't bother to remove duplicates. or even sort through what's in there.

Of Note, the Animations are not GIFs, but more in a sprite sheet form similar to real film, term escapes me at the moment. The Backgrounds are layered. So if you want to use the backgrounds you're going to have to find all the pieces, IE, foreground, midground, and background.

Other then that, have fun.

Oh man O_O;; I completely missed all that XDDD
well anyway like wooster, im also up to about chapter 3

heres my review:

Its good so far, What i really really love, are the awesome Anime/movie like scenes which are just like the ones Level 5 made for professor Layton ^^
Erm... wooster pretty much gave a perfect review, the characters all have freat personalities the music is great, and so is the game play ^^

im not going to just repeat everything so go read his post =u=;;;

[EDIT]Oh yeah, And ITS REALLY SHORT DX!
Ive only had the game since wednesday and im already am on chapter 5 (there are 6 chapters) but it seems as you go on the chapters get longer ?


erm Another detective game that i adore is touch detective, if anyone is wanting to try out another detective game
Its very cute, and childlike, and you really fall in love with the characters c:
Though the gameplay is interesting and so are the cases! C:

Ok, so far I like Jake Hunter pretty good. The characters are kinda ugly, and I think the BGM is pretty annoying. It's like three different tracks throughout the entire game. However, the game-play is decent, so I like it.

I agree, I think the rating that Nintendo Power Magazine gave it was good they gave it a 5.0.
There isnt much music the characters are kind of scary looking honestly :bellboy: XD

The only thing i really liked about the game is that it was MUCH more realistic than PW, Like the cases could actually happen in RL which is why i did enjoy it

Can a moderator move the Time Hollow posts to a new topic? It's getting kind of confusing with people talking about two different games in what was originally a Jake Hunter thread. :meekins:

I really like Mackenzie too. Mackenzie is actually my middle name, believe it or not! I also find Chloe entertaining. She's so overbearing, it's just so amusing!

The title already makes me not buy it. Hotel Dusk had a smart name, but Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles just says "OMFG, DETECTIVE GAME FTW! MYSTARYYYY!!!"
