Attack of the Fanboy (Mar 08, 2018)
Groundbreaking, unforgettable, unique, hilarious, smart, outrageous…there are many words to describe Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, and none of them have to do with mediocrity. Spike Chunsoft has defied expectations with a game that reaches the highest standards in entertainment and comedy, and even introduces a volume of philosophic conversations like very few titles have done in decades. At this point, one starts to question what else does Monokuma have to do to become the worldwide sensation it is destined to be.

One week isn’t enough to really understand everything about this game. The campaign is complete, but there is much still to do with the post-game content, trophies and what I can only assume are many more mysteries I can solve. Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is not a game you should just read about or watch a Let’s Play of on YouTube. It’s a game that absolutely demands 40 hours or more of your time. You must experience it first-hand if you truly want to understand what Team Danganronpa is trying to tell us.
The Game Hoard (Mar 14, 2018)
Although things seem quite familiar on the surface for a returning Danganronpa fan, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony throws in all kinds of twists and turns that the series needed to remain fresh. The murders and the greater mystery of the situation set up a sequence of crazy crimes that must be solved by learning how to lie with the game structuring it so it doesn’t completely derail things into an absolute free-for-all. If you can look past the few one-note characters, the cast is solidly designed to keep you suspicious but also get you invested in the plights of individual people, leading to some potentially gut-wrenching reveals. Reveals can be amazing, shocking, and heart-breaking all because the game expertly builds up to them and knows when to swerve so that you never get too comfortable or identify tropes that could have given away the game before it’s ended.

“All in all though, if you consider yourself a fan of visual novels, detective stories and dark anime in general, then I highly suggest picking up Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, you’ll be in for a killer time.”
Girl Gamers UK (Oct 03, 2017)
Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony really is a quirky game that will not appeal to all gamers. However, if you have ever even considered trying a murder mystery visual novel type adventure, and don’t mind your gaming a bit on the gruesome side, then Danganronpa is the place to start. While each of the Danganronpa games has its own self-contained story, I would still recommend picking up the ports first before jumping into V3, but only because they will be less of an undertaking to begin with. Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is another unforgettable journey with a thought-provoking destination. Just play it. So long, bear-well.

Das bizarre Schauspiel, dem man nur durch einen perfekten Mord an einem seiner Kameraden entfliehen kann, hat aber auch spielerische Facetten hinzugewonnen. So muss man in den abgedrehten Gerichtsverhandlungen manchmal sogar lügen, um der Wahrheit näher zu kommen - mit allen damit verbundenen Konsequenzen. Auch bei den Minispielchen zur Täterentlarvung gibt es einige Neuzugänge, wie die Fahrt in einem Psycho-Taxi. Story und Mörderhatz folgen zwar nach wie vor festen Wegen, glänzen aber mit gelungenen Wendungen, Überraschungen, Irreführungen und Geständnissen, die nicht nur in moralische Zwickmühlen führen, sondern auch in tiefe seelische Abgründe blicken lassen. Schade nur, dass man noch immer keine durchgehende Vertonung oder deutsche Lokalisierung geboten bekommt, denn diesen packenden Anime-Thriller sollte sich kein Krimifan entgehen lassen!

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is a great visual novel with trial elements, and is fun to play through. Given its style, it will definitively not be for everyone, but if you give it a try, I’m sure you’ll be in for a treat as this offers dozens of hours of gameplay – not to mention very long trials to take on each potential murderer!
GameGrin (Dec 30, 2017)
I would give this higher, but I know later down the line and looking back this is by no means a 9 or even 10 in terms of the game’s scope. But if the writing kept its pacing from start to finish, it would’ve matched the astonishing soundtrack, blistering court cases, impeccable murders, and superb characters. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to find myself a tissue for the tears I shed to those lost in this Killing Game.
Pure PlayStation (Sep 21, 2017)
Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony takes the best ideas in the series, runs wild with them, and manages to create a new killing game that still feels fresh while satisfying fans. The production values are the highest in the series, and, even though the game takes a little longer to get going, the journey and final conclusion are amazing. Although I would not recommend it to someone new to the series, if you have enjoyed Danganronpa games in the past, this one should not be missed.

„Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony“ ist ein sündhafter Genuss: All die Charaktere gehen durch die Hölle, doch es ist einfach zu interessant (und lustig), um mit dem Spielen aufzuhören. Die übertriebenen Charaktere und grandiosen Mordfälle sorgen für Lacher und zahlreiche Wow-Momente. Die Auflösung der Morde ist oft tricky – eure Hirnzellen werden immer wieder gefördert. Das Spiel ist leider etwas zu lang und dadurch oft langatmig. In der Kürze liegt die Würze, die Länge der Vorgänger war genau richtig und die 50 Stunden Spielzeit ist diesmal einfach Overkill. Zumindest bringen die Minispiele Abwechslung ins Spielerlebnis und sind deutlich besser als früher. Trotz kleinen Mängel überzeugt „Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony“ vor allem dank stets überraschender Handlung und einer coolen Präsentation.
Easy Allies (Nov 02, 2017)
Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony isn’t easy to summarize, at least not in a way that manages to capture its full scope. It's outlandish, and an example of how deeply engaging such outlandishness can be when wielded effectively. So much of what we consume is content to play into what the audience wants, but V3 takes a different path. It often challenges instead of appeals, and though not all of its points are equally strong, the constant push against player expectations makes it a far more intriguing journey.
MAN!AC (Nov 01, 2017)
Erneut reizvolle Visual Novel mit Erkundungsaspekt und Gerichtsverhandlungen mit Minispielen – allerdings streckenweise langatmig.
75 (Sep 28, 2017)
Danganronpa V3 : Killing Harmony remplit à merveille son office et s’autorise quelques embardées créatives pour enrichir un genre qui peine à se renouveler par définition. Le retour de Monokuma ravira sans nul doute les fans de la franchise tout en accueillant comme il se doit les néophytes de par la présence de 16 personnages et d’un arc narratif inédits. La simple possibilité de pouvoir mentir lors des procès change considérablement la donne et l’approche d’un exercice bâti sur la réflexion et la rapidité. Malheureusement, Spike Chunsoft complexifie bien trop sa recette par moment au point de la rendre indigeste, voire frustrante. Malgré tout, ce nouveau Danganronpa est un voyage haletant dans les méandres d’un esprit pervers et perverti, celui d’un ourson malicieux qui ne laissera personne indifférent.

Danganronpa is lunacy personified where games are concerned but does do a very good job in keeping the series going and make it accessible to newcomers, too. A crazy RPG experience.
Cubed3 (Nov 05, 2017)
Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is a good game. It manages to deliver a cast that lives up to previous alumni and stories that are on par with the best the series has produced. The Class Trials are just as fun, mostly, and the murders smart little enigmas. This should have been a home run, but it isn't. The narrative choice made is going to be massively divisive in the fan base. It's a bold choice; it's an interesting choice; it's the wrong choice. Sometimes it can be about the destination and not the journey, especially if the driver suddenly swerves into a wall.
Geeks Under Grace (Oct 09, 2017)
This game was disappointing to me. While I was fairly ambivalent about the first game, the lore that was established afterward, especially in the second game, really made the series come alive. It’s such a shame then that the ending to Killing Harmony serves to undermine what came before. I really wish I had more positive things to say about the game because Danganronpa 2 was such a joy to play with really loveable characters, a unique setting, and no obsession with shocking its players. My honest recommendation is to just go play that game. I feel like I can’t even recommend this game to Danganronpa fans because of how much of a disservice it is to the rest of the series.
RPG Site (Sep 19, 2017)
Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is destined to be a title the fans are going to be split over. The game has a very clear message it wants to rub off on the player, and it’s the sort of thing you’re going to have to mull over for a while to determine whether or not it earns its thesis. For me, it all just felt like desperation laced with fatigue. When the game wasn’t dragging me through incredibly long-winded exposition and plot bits, it was disappointing me with the direction the story took. If Spike Chunsoft wanted me to get a sense of closure from the series, they may have succeeded, because I’m not sure I’m up for another one.
Goomba Stomp (Oct 14, 2017)
In conclusion, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony feels a lot like more of the same when compared to the rest of its franchise. It’s pretty important to have played the other games in the series before diving into 3, even if the connections for everything aren’t apparent at first. The game has a lot of the same quirks as earlier titles including it’s over the top cast, comic book art style, and twist-loving plot. However, it also comes with a lot of the same problems, and for every good thing there’s something less enjoyable to go with it.
