  • Conclusion: The combination of monster-collecting, tactics, and disturbing plot are sure to keep players’ heads in the game.
  • Pros: The skill-cracking system lets you unlock certain abilities by having one of your characters defeat a specific enemy, often forcing you to weigh the advantages of a quick kill vs. prolonging a battle for long-term gain.
  • Cons: You lose a mission over and over because the NPC you have to save takes the stupidest actions possible.

  • Summary: "Devil Survivor" war für mich der erste Teil der SMT-Reihe, und hat mir gezeigt, wieviel ich da wohl bislang verpasst habe! Eine spannende Geschichte, cooler Look und vor allem ein tiefgängiges, komplexes Kampfsystem - perfekt!
  • Pros: gelungenes Kampfsystem mit viel Tiefgang, spannende Geschichte, verschiedene Enden, viel Raum für eigene Anpassungen
  • Cons: Kämpfe sehr fordernd, an vielen Orten wenig bis nichts zu tun, DS-Features werden nicht genutzt
