A solid, unique RPG experience

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: I had to buy this game again because I lost my original and there simply isn't any other game quite like it. It's very much like a dark (I mean really dark) version of Pokemon. If you want that turn-based battle and monster-collecting experience without suffering even an ounce of the childish fluff, this is the game for you.

Classic Game

  • Summary: This is one of the reprint copies I was lucky enough to have obtained however it works slightly worst than the original but not as bad as some of the horror stories you have heard of tremendous loading times. I am lucky enough to get a working copy and that is all I can ask for.

Cool JRPG

  • Summary: I was instantly sucked into this game with its darker premise and mysterious story. Even despite being an older game by today's standards with simple text/music and no voices, it didn't disappoint and I was fully immersed in this strange world. I'm only partially into Nocturne so far and I have to say it's strengths are the story, art design, battle system if you like turn-based, and demon collecting/fusions which are interesting.

Love it!

  • Summary: I bought this game based on the strong reviews, but I really didn't think I'd like it as much as I do. While this is a difficult game (God bless the walkthrough), it's not as tough as some of these reviews make it sound. If you just employ some common sense re. which demons to keep intact and which to fuse, and if you remember to save at every opportunity, you will persevere. Honestly, I *love* this game.

Got worried for nothing

  • Summary: I read a lot of the reviews on amazon and I don't see why everyone says this game is so hard. Yes, it can get difficult at times but its not impossible. I wouldn't recommend this game for casual gamers or those who are new to RPGs. The fighting can get grueling, especially in some of the longer parts. I think the main thing that makes this game harder is the fusions.

Great! But feels quiet...

  • Summary: I am a newcomer to the SMT games and started out with P3FES like a lot of people have. I have to admit that that game completely blew me away and so did Persona 4. Because I had so much fun with the mentioned titles, I was craving more action from the SMT Universe. So I came across Nocturne and heard nothing but praises. Nocturne is just as addictive as Persona 3 and 4 and battles is where I had the most fun, not to mention recruiting demons.

  • Summary: The game is kind of confusing it dont explain much durring the game as far as the battle system or any of the different elements or even where to go sometimes you hit dead ends until you run around and find out where you need to go, other than thoes couple of flaws it is a pretty good game good action and the battle system is a classic rpg type system all in all not a bad game at all

A Cool, Original RPG by Atlus...

whirlwyn, Ebay
8 July 2008
  • Summary: This is a cool, RPG from Atlus that was released in 2004. It is a game that's set in post apocalystic Tokyo and you must summon various souls to help you in your quest. If you like traditional, turn based RPG's, then this is the game for you. The graphics are good, but the background music and sound effects are truly superb. It can be a little difficult, so you might need a guide or FAQ to help you out.

Nocturne: Pokemon Gone to Hell, but in a Good Way

si1vergecko, Ebay
8 April 2007
  • Summary: Somthing that you do in just about every RPG is save the world. Not here. In the first half hour, the earth is destroyed. Instead, by being in the right place at the right time you happen to be in the one location that humans could survive in during this catastrophe brought on by rival cults. Yet through some outside force you awake after this happened as a demon, and the world as you know it is changed as it seems that humans are replaced by demons.
