Apocalypse, Light on the Evil

15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner marks a bit of a new direction for the series, using a far more lighthearted tone and lighter level of difficulty to move it ever-so-slightly closer to mainstream RPGs. The game uses a story set in a recognizable period of history to present a unique and intriguing take on the series universe, but its new combat system, which exchanges the complexity of the Press Turn system for a simplistic real-time system, means that the game is...

  • Excerpt: Author’s Note: Due to some unpleasant wildfires in Derek’s part of the world, we’ve had to postpone some of the reviews that were going up this week.

The Next Level

  • Excerpt: First off, let me get this out of the way: I've never played a Shin Megami Tensei game in my life. Well, that's not completely true. I did play a used copy of Persona for a solid fifteen minutes before being really, really confused and shelving it. I vaguely remember there being a large cherry blossom tree inside a hospital and maybe dancing with some demons . . . it was crazy.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner

Empire Online
9 October 2007
  • Summary: Like an unholy blend of role-playing, detective gaming and Pokémon – with slavering demons rather than cute pocket monsters, of course – the latest Shin Megami Tensei keeps the weirdness levels high and punctuates your relentless search for clues with an avalanche of beastly battles. But while previous editions have helped establish the series’ good name outside Japan, Devil Summoner is plagued by aggravating flaws that soon become unbearable.

Shin Megami Tensei - Devil Summoner

Level 7
10 March 2007
  • Conclusion: Bakgrunder och miljö håller god klass. Design på karaktärer och monster måttlig. Väldigt japanskt. Trevlig och originell värld. Men de alldeles för ofta förekommande slumpstriderna känns fyrkantiga och kontrollen är trög. Berättandet är mest jobbigt. Längden på äventyret är lagom och ger valuta för den ganska billiga slanten som spelet kostar. Ett småtrevligt, lite udda, rollspel.
  • Pros: Skön stämning, Många demoner, Billigt
  • Cons: Stela strider, Seg kontroll, Hög stridsfrekvens
