I can do worst than everything said here without even trolling at all.

FINAL
FANTASY
TACTICS

I shit you not, I find that game awful. I'd rather play FFT:Advanced on the GBA over it.

- The flow of the story is horrible since you get very little between each fight and then a giant bitchslap of it at the end of a chapter.
- Overly long game. Some battles or story bits could have been filler episode if this was a TV show.
- The difficulty of the game is completely unbalanced. I was having a really hard time winning a random encounter at the beginning. Later, a friend told me about the 100 valor, 0 fate, monk counter + camouflage combo... and I was never hit for the rest of the whole game fighting solo.
- Turns are soooooo slow (okay, a lot of tactic games have that problem, but still worth noting)
- The most retarded cast of secret characters I have ever seen.
- No way to foresee how to get said special characters without a guide.

Worst RPG I've played probably goes to Saga Frontier. Man that was awful.
I don't think I like you anymore.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Rule #1 of video games=NEVER ASSUME A TITLE BASED ON A FEATURE LENGTH FILM WILL BE ANYTHING BEYOND SUCKY.

Rule #2=same as rule 1, but in bigger font and more profanity.

Persona 3

"Hey guys, there's a demon over there trying to...do....something to that coffin which is a person who's asleep in this midnight hour abyss that doesn't seem to end, lets shoot ourselves in the head with our pretend guns and advocate that through death one can unleash raw power...or something?"

What, I said it, do something.

Loving the game so far, but I agree that it really needed a mini-map.  I think DQ9 spoiled me here, but I have to paint a mental image of the dungeon all the time, which is a little annoying.  Loving the battle system too!
You won't really need a mini map, the areas are pretty simplistic and in short supply. You'll revisit each spot multiple times in each timeline. Adding to that the fact that each area is only roughly 3-5 maps long, 7 so far being the big number I've seen (and I'm at I think the end of the game). Now where you're spoiled from DQIX, I'm more hardened from FFXI which has no mini map to speak of, so alot of my running was blind, but even then, Radiant Historia's maps =/= FFXI maps.

Kinda small spoiler, but meh most of you probably figured this already. Always try to do both options at a critical juncture. Yes, you will get a bad ending, but it completes more of the story chart, and it doesn't impede your progress. HOWEVER, when given the option to return after a /fin, find a save point and warp back to the juncture point. I saw a few people complain about it on other forums, so I figured I'd toss it out there. Anyways, gonna go beat (spoilers) now, and probably gonna have to fight (spoilers) shortly afterwards, since he's the owner of the (spoilers). Wish me luck.

It's more than simply re-doing wrong choices, the 2 timelines impact one another directly and indirectly. Without spoiling anything, one mini quest you start in timeline A can be completed via timeline B, and saving someone in timeline B will allow them to arrive for a future event in timeline A. It's just a shame that this is on a handheld system, as with some more power, this whole timeline hopping system could have some huge possibilities, like real impact if you make different choices. I don't mean the simple left or right, left=wrong choices, I mean if you go left, then you either die, start over, and try again, or go left, tangle with the odds you're given, and the story adjusts based on your interaction in said option. It's not a complaint, just a longing desire for a future title like this.

I've been playing pretty much all day today, some 25 hours in now. I love it, best DS game I've picked up this year, and last year for that matter. 3 points for atlus for this one.

30 hours doesn't feel long to me, but mabe I'm just spoiled from MMOs somewhat. 40 hour games are basically an extended weekend for me, so if this is about the same, I'll be done by sunday, which means back to Dragon Quest VI, which I'm about halfway done with, and then back to tactics ogre, which is also about halfway done. Hopefully by then, I'll be ready for the third birthday...hopefully.

Off topic, yes, my my experience with atlus titles may be slightly less than numerous, but the ones I named I really don't like at all. I played a couple of Shin Megami Tensei games, including digital devil saga (enjoyed greatly) strange journey and devil summoner on DS (not so much) and I think a few others I can't remember offhand. I'm not saying all of the current atlus titles out there suck, just a lot of them aim for some lame character design, shoddy "japanese meets american" feel, or try to play off on the whole emo scene by giving your team guns to shoot themselves in the head to unlock their inner power etc etc (I REALLY hate persona 3). Again, I like a few games, but damn I hated some of them hard.

On topic, THIS GAME IS WINTASTIC. I don't get it, I love it and it's just so....simple. It plays well, it's pretty, it's fun, the story is addictive, the time hopping is creative beyond anything I've seen in many other rpgs of late. This game definitely is a must have for a DS owner. Dincrest's review is spot on, maybe even selling it short somewhat. My only dislike is the fact that I can't hook it up to my 32 inch TV somehow and play it on a larger screen. That and I know it's gonna be short :(

Atlus titles tend to be overrated, artsy, and overall shit save a handful of interesting ones.

What?!
Sorry, I have an opinion, and my opinion is atlus is bleh 85% of the time. Wasn't fond of the games I've played from them recently.ESPECIALLY persona 3...my god that game hurt my senses.

This game does not fit that stereotype at all.

I didn't know that was a stereotype of Atlus games. What games are you even talking about?
Etrian oddysey, Persona (specifically 3), honestly those are the 2 sticking out in my mind, but there are more. Yes, Atlus is a publisher, but still, they publish a lot of crappy games, and a handful of awesome ones (like this, and the original lufia games).
