Great Spinoff

J. Michael Gallen "J. Michael Gallen", Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: Atlus’s Shin Megami Tensei series is one of those rare videogame franchises where the spinoff titles actually outnumber main entries. On the heels of the acclaimed Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, just the third game in the main Shin Megami Tensei franchise and the first of the main series to see a release outside Japan, came a new spinoff series, Digital Devil Saga: Avatar Tuner, with the first game in the duology localized as Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga,...

  • Summary: SMT really pushed the boundaries on this game. It's a really great game with a story line that just keeps you coming back for more. The customization and the battles are just plain wow! And the characters really know how ta get you involved. Another great SMT game!

Was always interested in this game

John Burt III, Amazon

  • 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

Alex Penkala, Amazon

  • 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.

A jRPG with very few anime cliches!

Kelvy, Amazon

  • Summary: Digital Devil Saga. Such a unique name, right? Well that's perfect because SMT: DDS is a very unique jRPG experience. Before I start reviewing the game, let me just tell you that I'm a fan of many different jRPG series. I enjoy Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Shin Megami Tensei (namely Persona 3 and 4!), Tales of, etc etc. If you're a fan of the more popular jRPG series like Final Fantasy or Kingdom hearts, know that this game might not be for you.

Original for atlus

AliceZahi "Isaac", Amazon

  • Summary: This game series only has 2 games and is very different from classic SMT games and their other spinoffs like persona. it focuses on Hindu mythology as opposed to traditional Judaic mythology but yet retains the same dark feel that the world is coming apart. however the multiple endings of the previous game are where it lacks as all you have to customize is your skill set. no fusion or multiple endings to give a less linear feel to the game.

Hardcore RPG gameplay, not for children!

Nikolaii , GameStop
6 August 2011
  • Summary: This game is built for hardcore adult RPGer's who like involved storylines and hard gameplay. If you're looking for something for your kids or something to play casually in your free time, then this isn't for you! The storyline is unique, and offers a non-cliched alternative to casual RPGs.

Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga

Oralom, Amazon
16 April 2011
  • Summary: Very interesting storyline. Graphics and gameplay are decent. Running around mazes does get repetitive. The major downside to the game is that it's a cliff hanger ending forcing the player to try to find the sequel to find out what happens. However, the storyline seems to be well worth it.

Original Aesthetic, But Drags On

Gamescook, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: While it is a good game with great music, and I did greatly enjoy it several years ago, the high encounter rate makes the game tempting to leave well enough alone these days. However, a refreshingly atypical story and setting for the genre is almost worth checking out alone. It's up to you whether or not you can spare the $30 and 40-50 hours of your time to play the game.
