The story of this game is similar to the story of 'The Butterfly Effect', by Asthon Kutcher. Well the point of this is that if you love 'The Butterfly Effect' like I do, and then you should love this one but let me tell you why.
While this game may look like a survival-horror tell or something dramatic similar to "Haunting Ground", or "Clock Tower" series for the PS1/PS2... This game is actually quite closer to "Shenmue" for the Dreamcast system.
So if you're looking for a game with a fantastic story-mode and a thrilling story this game is a fantastic choice on the playstation portable. However if you're looking for any actual fighting or combat, you simply cannot find here, but the story is great.
So the story is pretty short too, but since there is no combat to participate in you will find the length perfectly fine.
There haven't really ever been any other games like this, and given how short the game actually is. It's a pretty poor excuse to mark this game down or miss-by-it.
So in the end I really did love this game for it's lack of combat, but the choice of art-style and use of the special looking 3D models left me very enthralled in the story mode.
So with all of that being said I would call this game a masterpiece of the PS2 generation.

I BOUGHT THIS GAME FOR THE PS2 LIKE 7 YEARS AGO AND JUST RECENTLY FOR THE PC AND WAS BLOWN AWAY SKY HIGH OF HOW GRAPHICALLY AND ENTERTAINING IT WAS. THE GRAPHICS AND VOICE OVER ARE AWESOME. THE STORY LINE IS MIND BLOWING. I MEAN ONCE YOU START PLAYING IT YOU WONT BE ABLE TO LET IT GO CAUSE ONE EVENT LEADS TO ANOTHER AND ANOTHER. ALSO THE EVENTS DEPENDS ON THE ACTIONS YOU TAKE MAKING ITS REPLAYABILITY HIGH.
NOW SEEING IT ON PSP IT STILL ROCKS IDENTICALLY AS WELL AS ITS PS2 AND PC RELEASED BUT NOW IS EVEN BETTER CAUSE WE CAN TAKE THIS AMAZING TRILLER ON THE GO.
ITS A SHAME THAT KONAMI DIDNT RELEASE THE SEQUEL TO THIS GAME IN THE US WHICH THEY TITLED "SHADOW OF MEMMORIES". IT WAS RELEASE FOR THE JAPPANESE PLAYSTATION 2 SEVERAL YEARS AGO,BUT MY FRIENDS IF YOU PLAY THIS TITLE AND LIKE IT AS MUCH AS I DO, I SUGGEST WE CALL KONAMI AND REQUEST THE SEQUEL TO BE RELEASED ON PSP AND WHO KNOWS THEY MIGHT LISTEN AND RELEASED TO THE U.S.
