Chase Cold Case Investigations (Review) Nintendo 3DS
Review Score:

Chase: Cold Case Investigations is a story-driven mystery game by Taisuke Kanasuki who is known for titles such as Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and Another Code/Trace Memory. Taisuke has teamed up with Aksys Games after the closure of Cing in 2010 to bring you a point-and-click game that is more visual novel than game. If you are looking for action in your game, this may not be the game for you.

The game centers around two detectives in a cold case unit named Shounosuke Nanase and Koto Amekure. The game is about a cold case of a hospital explosion that was closed due to a lack of substantial evidence. It is up to the player to uncover the truth of the hospital explosion that occurred five years earlier when new evidence is revealed with the murder of the person who covered it up.

This game is extremely linear, with no exploration at all and does not have your regular point or click mechanics. This title has poured all of its resources on the narrative due to its smaller budget and much of the story is delivered through interactive cut scenes. There is little to do in this game, but read and click on answers when they allow you to. There is, however, good character development and the story does provide you with a sense of the personalities of each character through their interaction with each other.

The interactive component of the game is through you solving elements in the game and sleuthing. You examine different pieces of information to move the story forward, which involves looking at photos of the crime scene and the evidence. You also get to interview different witnesses and potential suspects in order to get a clearer picture of what occurred that day. There is an interrogation gauge that does get lower with every wrong answer that you deliver during interviews and if it goes to zero, the games ends.

This is not my style of game at all. I usually like a little bit more interactivity with my games and I found my interest wavering in points. The game is extremely short and can be completed in about two hours if you are involved enough in the story. The story is engaging especially if you are a fan of crime dramas.

I am unfortunately not a fan of crime dramas and need a bit of action to help ease the boredom. There is no voice acting in the game and relies on text to deliver the story. The game is well done, but it’s just not my type of game.
