    My wife got me this game for Christmas, and I've really fallen in love with its uniqueness and charm. Definitely on the easier side of RPGs, with a simple, stripped down combat system, but the main draw here is the characters and story. The developers make excellent use of common RPG tropes, reshuffling them, taking them apart, and putting them back together again throughout the adventure.

    The unique storytelling conceit - that you are a hero who's lost his memory right before fighting the final boss - is used to great effect. Memories are uncovered slowly as the battle progresses, with each new memory having some bearing on how the hero should act in his battle with the Demon King. The story is certainly light and fun throughout most of the adventure, but the developers are also not at all shy about letting things go to a dark place based on the player's choices.

    On the downside, the game did freeze on me a few times during my playthrough, so be sure to save often just in case it happens to you. Outside of that, I would highly recommend The Longest Five Minutes to any RPG fan.

    Some may take the whole non-grinding, anti-money, null-gear progression approach wholeheartedly and embrace it simply for being "fresh", but The Longest Five Minutes just isn't really fun to play. As solely a story and visual piece, the game is quite pleasant and I applaud them for breaking the mold there. However, systematically it falls short in almost every way. Again, this is largely due to their approach of the story and mechanics surrounding it. Perhaps The Longest Five Minutes is just too ambitious for its own good. Allowing the story and its delivery devices to transcend beyond the usual at the expense of the other features just doesn't really work here for me.
