Summary: Nippon Ichi Software seems to have some bizarre fixation on the underworld, demons, and all the things that usually come after a not so righteous life. All of their titles have something to do with this strangely interesting yet disturbing place.
Conclusion: Unfortunately the low-res graphics are starting to show their age despite some great art direction and design. NIS is really going to have to kick up the sprite count a notch if they want to push their games into the next generation.
