Danganronpa may not have the family-friendly reach of Phoenix Wright, but its cult status has now become undeniable among adventure game fans, and if you've ever wanted to discover its uncanny magic for yourself from the comfort of your own PC, this Steam release will definitely reward your patience. If you've been looking for a riveting mystery thriller caked in layers of shameless bombast, Danganronpa will give you hours of trigger happy entertainment.

Danganronpa is the sort of game that requires you to have a taste for the absurd, to be able to suspend your belief as you take in all of the insanity this game throws at you. Don’t be turned away by its linearity, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is one of the best visual novels you’ll play. And now, even PC users will be able to enjoy this crazy ride.

Danganronpa is one of the best story-driven games on PC. The scarcity of interaction, vast quantities of text, and glacial pace will turn a lot of people off, but the story is so compelling that I barely noticed that all I was doing was clicking through lines of dialogue. Monokuma is a deliciously evil villain and the crimes are brilliantly constructed. Just when you think you’ve figured them out, you’ll be blind-sided by some new piece of evidence. If you love adventure games and want to experience something different, Danganronpa is worth investigating.

Overall, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc can seem like an unpolished gem in some spots, but it is a gem all the same. And these few spots are not anywhere near enough to take away from the general experience. Even apart from the series it spawned, Trigger Happy Havoc stands as a solid game in its own right. Anyone who enjoys mystery games or dark stories that make you question just how good you or anyone else really are, should give this title a shot.

Danganronpa’s PC port’s art is a little rough around the edges, but it is the only way that many people who would enjoy it can play it without investing in a Vita or PlayStation TV. While the Vita still feels like the most natural home Spike Chunsoft’s wonderful murder mystery, PC players shouldn’t wait any longer to fall down the rabbit hole. Danganronpa remains a fascinating and mind-bending game full of the darkest moments of despair, but also the brightest moments of hope.
Metro.co.uk (Feb 22, 2016)
Much of what Danganronpa is trying to do in terms of storytelling and character empathy is well ahead of other much better known games, which continue to use only the bluntest and most obvious tools to make you care about their stories. In Danganronpa you not only feel grief at the death of a simple collection of pixels but it has you sympathising with killers and plotting bloody murder against relative innocents. All of which is decidedly non-PC, except now it is.

Overall, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is a decent adventure game, that has some really interesting gameplay mechanics and ideas. The game does a great job of switching up the pacing and timing of the gameplay. It’s also worth taking time to talk to classmates as much as possible, as they give you more information and add more depth to the story. I really enjoyed this game, and would suggest it if you like murder mysteries or games like Persona.

If you're keen for one of the suspenseful thrillers manageable with just images and text, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc comes highly recommended. The story stands alongside any mystery film or novel, and the writing lets you understand and even befriend the characters before you're forced to see them pushed to their psychological limit.
