One game for the price of two, but at least that one game is pretty good

Summary: (Note: this review covers both Digital Devil Saga games, because their gameplay is nearly identical, and the story of the second is a direct continuation of the first.) The first thing you should know about Digital Devil Saga is that it's a Shin Megami Tensei (MegaTen) game, through and through. If you've played another recent game in this franchise (e.g.
Summary: DDS (Digital Devil Saga) is Nocturne but with more story mixed in the dungeon crawling.It's not a whole lot mind you.In fact, barely anything happens until the second to last dungeon when the game blindsides you with confusing exposition. It was supposed to be a dramatic event but I couldn't help but laugh at the presentation during the huge plot reveal of DDS 1.
Summary: This game can be a bit difficult at first with its puzzles and mazes but throughout the game, you level up quickly. There's not much of a plot to it till the very end. You go around killing other tribes and following/protecting Sara. They spent a lot of money getting these well known voice actors instead of developing their characters and story further. But overall, it is worth playing. I do recommend it.
Summary: As a fan of the "Persona" series, I've been trying to investigate other spinoffs of the "Shin Megami Tensai" world. My first foray was the "Devil Summoner," which were quite good (particularly the 2nd one, which was released pretty recently). But today, we're talking about "Digital Devil Saga".
Summary: This game is good fun- its an intriguing world and rather good looking even though the story is a little predictable and the battle system can get a bit tedious- but THIS GAME IS NOT WORTH $100 in fact i would not be willing to spend more than $30ish on it THESE PRICES ARE OUT OF CONTROL
Summary: I know it's somewhat blasphemous to say anything negative about this game amongst hardcore JRPG fans but I honestly did not enjoy it that much. The story is very very interesting but the repeated deaths on first turns in random battles that can sometimes occur 1 to 2 seconds apart just made this game not worth the frustration of trying to advance the plot line in these oversized dungeons in which you will be forced to back track frequently...
Summary: If you've ever played SMT III Nocturne, you might have good reason to reject this game. Rest assured, there's a lot less randomness this time around. The main reason is that you have much more control over what your characters can learn. The biggest issue with SMT III is that you couldn't really do that, so you always were at the mercy of the game itself.
