The Longest Five Minutes uses a truly gripping concept, throwing the classic RPG formula on its head by having you put the pieces of an already existing story together as you go. While the combat and general gameplay are almost too easy-going, the story, characters, and overall aesthetic had us always wanting more, never wanting to put the game down. The asking price is perhaps a little steep for the amount of content available, and the strange take on a usually well-understood genre may throw some players off, but there is an indescribable charm that is worth exploring here.
The Longest 5 Minutes isn’t really the most innovative RPG, despite its presentation, but it’s a short and fun game to play through. You may not be surprised by the plot or challenged by the gameplay, but for genre fans, it’s still worth the playthrough just to see how the unusual situation of a hero losing his memories at the end of the game (rather than the start) is handled.
The Longest Five Minutes is a simple, basic, almost retro JRPG that manages to do something really cool with a non-linear story. It is by no means perfect, but the memories mechanic is entertaining enough to make this a great JRPG for anyone who has yet to sample the genre, and will even entertain the more longtime fans who are looking for something a little more relaxing.
The Longest Five Minutes part d’un concept intéressant pour livrer un jeu qui manque d’envergure. Sa narration par flashback comporte de bonnes idées et malgré quelques clichés, on a vraiment envie de voir la fin. Toutefois, il faudra faire avec un gameplay JRPG old-school des plus basiques, que ce soit le système de combat ou les donjons et villages. Sympa par moments, il reste intéressant pour un public averti.
The Longest Five Minutes is a promising JRPG with endearing characters that'll make you happy to experience their tale yet it simply doesn't offer enough fruitful gameplay to satisfy genre fans' gaming sensibilities.
