The Zero Escape series is a well liked series of games, that often ask the player to constantly rethink their actions. It has unique ideas and the gameplay is just so different. Traditionally, the series has been on handhelds, but now Zero Time Dilemma has come to the PS4, and it brings with it some of the most chilling yet inventive gameplay in the series.

Zero Time Dilemma is a masterful example of storytelling in gaming, but it goes beyond just having a good plot and writing. No spoilers will be given, but the game introduces new ideas to keep things fresh and players on their toes. The gameplay constantly shifts between different narratives, and the blending of them works so well, that you are constantly given a deeper and deeper sense of immersion. That isn’t to say the writing is not as good as the previous games, because it far surpasses it. There are new  ideas introduced, and the gameplay is extremely challenging, but players who have been through the previous games shouldn’t have that many problems.

I will say though, that if you have not played the previous games, then you might want to play those first. There are a lot of references to the previous entries and as such, a new player might be confused. You will still be able to play the game, but you will not be able to appreciate the full extent of the story. Of course, given how great the series is, you should definitely give the older games a look. Once you do, you will appreciate the game much more and have more of an understanding of what to do.

I must say that on the PS4, this game looks amazing and sounds amazing, and the game does take advantage to present itself in a much higher quality than the other releases of the game. Is it enough to make you double dip? Probably not, but if you have not yet checked out this series, then you really should. It is a challenging series and not for those who want a lighter experience, but  rather for players who want to test themselves. This is worth a look.
