Summary: This game is very different than other Shin Megami Tensei games. Demons are still a part of the game play but now you're able to change into demons. But this game is still to be enjoyed for those who are a fan of the Shin Megami Tensei series or those of us who are new to it.
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.
