Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemmais the third and final installment of theZero Escapetrilogy andwill be released for both the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. More importantly though, is that Zero Time Dilemma will answer all the unsolved mysteries left over from previous titles, and will take place between Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Zero Escape: Virtues's Last Reward.

Players familiar with the series will once again find themselves thrust into a gripping genre mash up of psychological horror, mystery, and suspense, with gameplay featuring an intense mix of escape-the-room and puzzle set pieces, all carefully crafted to ensure a unifying experience of desperation, especially with the return of making the macabre and extreme choice of selecting which 6 out of the 9 characters will die - gruesomely too... while previous entries have Japanese ratings of 15+, Zero Time Dilemma is set at 18+,implyingthat this final cut will be devastatingly gruesome and gorier than it's predecessors.

In all "decision" game type mediums, the fundamental experiment is to push a player's sense of morality to the brink; this is the "dilemma" featured in this title. Questions of what is right, good, evil, and wrong are fascinatingly explored, often accompanied by cut scenes of someone's life on the life, exploiting a player's psyche with the goal of creating a game that truly mimics thesense of utter despair from which the cruelty of human nature can provide.

The localized version of the gamewill feature English and Japanese dual audio!

Great Game!
Seriously it was a great way to close the series and at the same time add an interesting twist to the formula!

If you have played 999 or Virtues Last Reward you need to play this one too

One of my favourite games of the year!
One of the most engrossing games I've played.
I had a great time even though I did not play 999. Maybe it will be incentive to play through Zero Time Dilemma a second time after I've played through 999.

The presentation kinda falls apart
but otherwise, it's not a bad continuation. Check it out if you liked the other two games, just don't expect to be wow'd.

No title
And the trilogy is completed.
Not quite as good as the last game, but still a must have for fans of the series.

A story to ABOSLUTELY discover !
This is the 3rd episode of the Zero Escape trilogy that goes like this :
- 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors (Ios phones, 3ds, PsVita & Steam)
- Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (3ds, PsVita & Steam)
- Zero Time Dilemma (3ds, PsVita & Steam)

This saga deserves a much, much better place than the one it has right now. It's a really smart saga, with a small yet strong community of fans. Your brain will melt by making theories about who did what, the games are all intriging and fun, the characters are more than what they seem to be, and this story proves that videogames can be Art.
Careful, though : it's Visual Novel, with manga aesthetics and a lot of speeches. But it doesn't mean you won't do anything. On the contrary! The thinking on the "die and retry" concept is here brilliantly used. And the story is incredibly great.
So Please, buy it. The author didn't have the success he rightfully deserves in Japan. But it's a must play nonetheless. So no excuses: play it!
