Trace Memory Review

Posted by Altered Confusion on August 26, 2008

Trace Memory was one of those games that didn’t get as much publicity as I think it deserved. The game is a 3D third-person Mystery game. You are stuck on an island looking for those who have disappeared and trying to solve mysteries as you go along. A game that plays much like this one but in first person would be Myst, though this game has no where the length that a Myst would have.

The graphics are your standard DS affair. It is done in a cel-shaded fashion and overall the backdrops that you’ll see when entering a room (in the top screen) look picture quality.

The overall game play I found was entertaining and rewarding. There are a couple of small things that can happen in the game that you’ll probably miss so the chances of finishing the game off 100% are pretty slim, but being able to regain the memories lost and being able to conquer the mystery that surrounds the area that you are in is worth the play.

You are going to play the part of Ashley, a girl who until recently thought her parents dead, but she gets a package with a wierd device in it and a summons to an island. Once at the island you’ll find a ghost who has lost all his memories and with your help he will be able to discover how he came to be a ghost. In order to do that you’re going to be solving puzzle after puzzle finding items hidden throughout the game, and hopefully in the end you’ll have gained enough knowledge on ‘D’, the ghost, that he will be able to go to his resting place. You will also be trying to find what ever happened to your parents, and why you received that package.

I know that this is an older DS game and as such probably extremely difficult to find, but if you want a game that gives you some challenge along with a bit of mystery, but doesn’t take you a year and a half to finish then this is the game for you. I give this game an 8.2 out of 10.
