Critic Reviews for The Longest Five Minutes
The Longest Five Minutes does some things right, like the original starting premise, but soon all tends to be very simplistic in gameplay terms. At some points it seems as a visual novel with light game elements that were introduced in the last minute. Anyway, if you like the genre, the good stories and the 8 bit RPG era, you will enjoy it.

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.
