Detective Conan: Tsuioku no Gensou [Import] review

  • Static artwork is ok
  • Reading is good for you
  • Some charm in there
  • No Wii-mote innovation
  • Gameplay is dull
  • Not even for fans of the show

We’ll have to assume that’s the case, as we couldn’t quite muster the enthusiasm to slog through the entirety of a game as dull and annoying as this one. It’s a bit plodding, and fans of the anime are going to be disappointed - not to mention confused, if they don’t have working knowledge of Japanese.

Above: Talk the talk, or better yet: read it

The main part of the game involves walking around and talking to people. That’s all. You can’t interrogate them or anything like that, you just trigger a few pages of text and move on to the next person. After listening to absolutely everyone, you get to mark their faces on a sort of billboard that will, eventually, point the way to the guilty party.

It’s completely unchallenging because it doesn’t seem to let you make any mistakes. The process of deduction is nothing more than an exercise in trial and error.
