29 March 2015
Excerpt: Stella Deus: The Gate of Eternity is a relatively standard turn-based strategy game that, if nothing else, serves as a decent introduction to the genre. It offers nothing particularly special, but it is competently made and features a simple, easy to learn battle system that newcomers should...
Excerpt: Stella Deus: The Gate of Eternity is one of Atlus's latest RPGs to be released for the PlayStation 2 console. Recently, Atlus has had much luck in the field of RPGs, releasing fan favorites from the Shin Megami Tensei series, such as Nocturne and Digital Devil Saga .
Excerpt: With the exception of a slight misstep involving a fishing title, Atlus has really been on a tear as of late. Stella Deus: The Gates of Eternity is Atlus’ latest entry into the Strategy RPG genre, and continues Atlus’ streak of fun, quality SRPGs.

Excerpt: Publisher Atlus has been sticking their foot in the door of the RPG genre. Games like Disgaea, Shin Megami Tensei and Tactics Ogre are putting them on the map with fans of role playing and strategy games.
Conclusion: Most people don’t replay 40 hour games, and that’s exactly what Stella Deus is. Players can invest well over 100 hours into Stella if they feel like it, but it’s doubtful that most people will replay Stella after beating it.
