In addition to the main mystery, Jake Hunter: Ghost of the Dusk includes four other mini-mysteries that were originally cell-phone games in Japan and a genuinely amusing case file featuring chibi versions of Jake and Yulia. It's a well-rounded package, but I don't think anything here is compelling enough to make this a must buy for people still holding onto their 3DS.

Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk can certainly appeal to those looking for a visual novel and for a murder mystery type of game, its art style and content go very much in that sense. However, expectations fall short due to the lack of challenge of the investigations and the game does not transmit the players a real feeling of progression and advance in the game's plot.

I think Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk accomplishes what it sets out to do. It's more interactive visual novel than it is a typical vidoegame, but if you're in the mood for a casual yet compelling experience that's well written with a strong cast and solid presentation, you can't go wrong here.
