Critic Reviews for Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate

Taken as a whole, Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate isn't the most polished game out there. The writing and voice acting are sub-par, but the overall story and puzzles are well worth wading through the flaws to see to the conclusion. This is a great finale to a work of passion, and something every VR owner should at least check out.

Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate Episode 1 has a lot of rough edges, but is still an engrossing murder mystery with some unique VR elements. The seven hour adventure can be tough to get through thanks to some UX and technical shortcomings, but it's more than worth it for the exciting finale.

Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate Episode 2 lets you delve even further into this sci-fi murder mystery, with a gripping if poorly written narrative that provides more thrilling twists and turns. While the middle of this middle chapter can be slow and unsatisfying, this is still an incredibly fun plot to piece together in your head.

Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate moves MyDearest's living-anime games forward several steps by adding a greater degree of interactivity to the already excellent storytelling. Though the slow burn may put some players off, those with patients will find an intriguing mystery in a fabulously built sci-fi world. Well worth a look for anime fans; Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate hints at some great things to come, both from this series and this developer.

Dyschronia Chronos Alternate - Episode 1 is a nice start to visual novels in VR. It delivers a grand story that is held back by the lack of actually solving anything on your own. Most of the game has you interacting with objects just to leave the protagonist to figure out what to do with those objects for you. It simply holds your hand for its entire experience. There just simply wasn't enough interactivity with the medium of VR, and when the most important aspects come into play you're simply an observer.

Enter a world where crime doesn't happen, and investigate murder, theft, and apocalypse. Also lots of talking.

DYSCHRONIA: Chronos Alternate is a mostly fun investigative VR adventure that sets the stage for hopefully more games in the genre. Physically standing inside a crime scene and finding clues is surprisingly thrilling but I just wish it had a more interesting world to explore.
