Hands down, Zero Time Dilemma has the best story in the series. It made me laugh, shocked me, sickened me, surprised me, brought a tear to my eye, and taught me to look at Back to the Future in an entirely different light. There are seven endings that "matter," but in truth, every ending you see is significant. Hell, there's even a complete secondary story you have to figure out by yourself that adds another layer to the game and the series as a whole. Zero Time Dilemma is nothing short of a flawed masterpiece.

My time with Zero Time Dilemma was one of great pleasure and anguish, mainly because I knew I was saying goodbye to one of my favorite series. This final chapter brings the beloved Zero Escape trilogy to a gratifying end, featuring beautiful character moments, elaborate puzzles, and a mind-bending plot. Not many games will keep me glued to the screen like Zero Time Dilemma did, and despite its minor graphical flaws, it will remain a gem in the 3DS and Vita libraries.

Teils etwas holpriger, aber intelligenter und befriedigender Abschluss der rätsellastigen Visual-Novel-Trilogie.
While it ends up feeling a bit like the weakest game in the series so far, even a weak Zero Escape game is still an absolute delight, and Zero Time Dilemma is no exception. Between the magnificent and bizarre mystery that keeps you captivated, the colorful cast of characters and the nicely perplexing puzzles, this is one for visual novel, puzzle and adventure game fans alike. Heck, it’s a darn good game for anyone in general and one that can easily get newcomers hooked enough to try the earlier games as well (which you absolutely should, of course). Some parts could use a bit more polish (maybe tone down The Walking Dead influences next time), but in the end, it’s safe to say that Operation Bluebird was a success.

Aber selbst wenn die Anziehungskraft der ersten beiden Teile nicht mehr erreicht wird: Dieses tödliche Spiel unterhält immer noch auf einem richtig guten Niveau, denn man erlebt ein stimmungsvolles Mystery-Adventure mit einer Vielzahl an klassischen Rätselmechaniken und zig möglichen Enden, das mal unheimlich, mal brutal oder einfach nur verrückt sein kann. Wer offene Spielstrukturen und böse Überraschungen mag, wird also nicht enttäuscht - Serienkenner müssen dieses Finale ja ohnehin erleben. Falls ihr die Wahl habt: Spielt es auf der PS Vita, denn auf dem 3DS gibt es nicht mal 3D-Effekte und die klar schwächste Inszenierung; auch eine technisch bessere PC-Version ist erhältlich. An alle Neueinsteiger: Fangt unbedingt mit 999 an, spielt dann das grandiose Virtue's Last Reward und erst zum Schluss das hier.

Overall, we still firmly believe Zero Time Dilemma is a great conclusion to the Zero Escape series. Its incredible storytelling through fragmented scenes fittingly structures the entire plot as a puzzle that the player pieces together one at a time. Several characters we've come to hate and love throughout the series now have a conclusive explanation to the situations they faced in the other games. While some of its flaws may leave some areas feeling half-baked, Zero Time Dilemma will be something that won't be leaving our minds anytime soon.

Zero Time Dilemma n'est pas mauvais, juste incroyablement décevant pour les fans. De nombreux choix ont été faits pour ne pas brusquer le nouveau public, hors ce dernier n'était pas la cible visée par le jeu. Et si les quelques révélations apportées valent malgré la peine pour le fan d'acheter le jeu, les erreurs sont hélas parfois à la limite de l'impardonnable. Au final, si son rôle est de conclure la trilogie Zero Escape, paradoxalement, son plus gros défaut est d'avoir été précédé de deux jeux à la qualité exceptionnelle.
