Summary: Apocalypse is a great premise and setup for SMT, which is why I prefer the DDS series and the main series games more than the Persona games, keeps that feeling of dread. And this game does it excellently while providing more of a story than Nocturne. More characters, more interaction and story, but as a result a little bit more linear than Nocturne where you could wander quite a bit.
Summary: And its a real deceiver. Another great spin-off to one of the original ground breaking RPG series of all time! By deceiver, I mean it should not EVER be treated as a mere-generic RPG, especially when hell has broken loose! And to top it all off, you can transfer your status from this game to the second entry should you complete this game & acquire its sequel.
Summary: original and well done. Has good story and unique and simple gameplay. You have to play to to get the full story. Only complaint is the high encounter rate. Could use a little more scenes in the middle of the game.
Summary: I like most of the MegaTen games, and this is, I feel, another good entry for the spin offs from the main series. It captures the difficulty of the main series perfectly. Don't expect the game to go easy on you, even in the beginning. Only having the proper skill set will you progress through the game.
Very inventive twist on traditional turn-based combat

Summary: I am a big fan of the Shin Megami Tensei series. I began with Persona 3, 4 and then Strange Journey on DS. I think that Digital Devil Saga ranks very highly. It is an excellent entry level choice for getting into main-line SMT games. As the difficulty is very fair throughout the game. It has a very good balance between putting obstacles in front of the player as well as dispensing tools for us to utilize.
