Danganronpa 1-2 Reload is a collection of Danganronpa games for the PS4 and if you were a big fan of the games on the PS Vita then this collection is for you. Danganronpa 1-2 Reload includes Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2 Goodbye Despair. If you want to play Danganronpa on a big HD screen then this collection is for you.
The Danganronpa games are heavy in dialogue and if you want to understand the story and the characters then you’ll have to read. The voice acting in both Trigger Happy Havoc and Goodbye despair is excellent. You don’t hear their voices fully all the time. That being said this made me enjoy the game even more because I was able to read and understand each character. In Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc you have a group of “ultimate” characters who are trapped in a school named Hope Peak Acadamy. I don’t want to say too much because of spoilers, but the story in this game is outstanding and extremely interesting. The story will keep you engaged for hours. You wouldn’t want to drop your controller because of the addicting story. Every character in Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc is different. The main character in both games are quite good and many of the characters develop throughout both games.
The art style in both Trigger Happy Havoc and Goodbye Despair is great. A lot of the characters have great designs. What I really liked about Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc was the class trials. Each and every class trial were excellent and they were filled with many mysteries and problems to be solved. Like I said before I don’t want to say too much because of spoilers but the class trial in Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc is very important and plays a big part in the game.
The music in both Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2 Goodbye Despair is excellent. I’ve said a lot about Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc so now I’ll talk about the better game. Goodbye Despair. Both Trigger Happy Havoc and Goodbye Despair are excellent games but Goodbye Despair is even better. And that’s not a bad thing because you get both these games in this bundle. The game takes place on a Paradise Island. Danganronpa 2 Goodbye Despair is ultimately the better game and it improves on everything Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc does. The story in better and the main characters (Spoiler) Hajime Hinata is a much better character in my opinion. That being said (Spoiler) Makoto Naegi is a great character too. One thing that’s lacking in both games is the level design. The level design could have been better in my opinion.
Overall a great collection recommended to gamers looking for a game with an excellent story. I recommend you buy this collection. If you’re looking to pick up Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony later this year then I 100% recommend you buy this collection. You will not be disappointed.
Danganronpa 1-2 Reload is a great collection recommended to gamers looking for games with an interesting and addicting story with well developed characters
