5.0 out of 5 stars SMT moves to the Dual Screen June 26, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is about kids fighting with demons and going to hell. Sounds like right up my ally. I am a huge SMT fan (I own literally every game on the PS2 with the name......at least the ones released in the U.S.) I was kind of disappointed that there was not bonuses things included in the release (the art books in both persona games were awesome). I just started the game up about 5 hours into it and I am not much of a grid RPG fan but so far it has been a blast playing. Im just finding it hard not to kill everyone.

There is a learning curve in my opinion for those people who have not played a SMT game. You really have to learn the lingo of attacks (bufu, garu, hama, mudo) they really arn't as strait forward. But when you get the attacks down and your own personal strategy going your not going to want to put down this game.

Who should buy this game:
-Teens looking for a good challenge and who like RPG games
-ANY SMT fan
-Anyone looking for something other than a kids game on their new DSi

Who should not buy this game:
-Kids (trust me its not for them they will not understand the story line)
-People who are sensitive to demonic literature (this game is full of demons and references to hell Lucifer ect.)

Over all very fun and unique twist to an already great series of games.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful surprise June 25, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Shin Megami Tensei series has grown on me the past couple years, mainly thanks to the great past few releases on the PS2. Now Atlus' long running RPG series makes its debut on the DS with Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor, and the results are just as spectacular. The game's storyline finds life in Tokyo going to Hell, pretty literally. With the ability to summon your own demons to take down the rampant baddies running around the city wreacking havoc, and time always working against you, Devil Survivor pits you in some interestingly designed battles that mix traditional turn-based attacks with a hearty amount of strategic input as well. There is a ton of character customization to behold as well, as well as the promise of multiple endings thanks to some many plot branches, which means that Devil Survivor is a game you will keep coming back to again and again. The game looks good and features plenty of atmosphere and nicely designed settings and character models, and having some addictive gameplay doesn't hurt matters either. If there's any drawbacks to the game, it's that there are a good amount of moments where you just seem to plod along, but these moments are few and far between. All in all, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor is another fantastic RPG on the DS, and if you're an RPG loving DS owner, you need to pick this game up, even if you're unfamiliar with the Shin Megami Tensei franchise.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic RPG for your Nintendo DS October 31, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game along with "The World Ends with You." TWEWY is a fine game, but I really didn't like the touch interface terribly much. Since the game relies exlusively on how you touch the screen, enemy battles can be drawn out since the DS cannot differ between similar strokes on the screen. Since "Devil Survivor" doesn't use the touch interface, all commands are entered through the buttons. This naturally enables the player to not make any mistakes with what type of command you want to execute, unlike TWEWY.

I played that game for a while, then set it aside. Next, I fired up "Devil Survivor,' and I haven't put the game down since! This game is great because it has an incredibly refined, and dynamic, battle system. While you are battling enemy demons, the key to victory is exploiting their elemental weaknesses. Whenever you exploit the weakness of your enemy, you will get an extra turn to deal out more damage. Watch out, though, because the enemy will do the same to your demons. Another fun aspect about this game is the "monster breeder" aspects to demon fusion. You acquire demons by the in-game online auction. Once you have enough demons in your arsenal, you can combine them for more powerful demons. In fact, this is the way that some of the most powerful demons can be accessed in this game. So "mixing and matching" can yield some unexpected, and exciting, results. I somehow created King Frost, a unique demon with advanced stats, and I don't even know how! Sometimes, though, you just need to grind away to level-up. You earn experience points in battles, but the great thing is you can leave optional battles if you realize you don't have the right equipped demons.

Of course, no game is without any annoyances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atlus Does SRPG Right! July 13, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Not prone to review games on Amazon, I felt I just had to give a hearty thumbs-up to this very solid and highly-addictive strategy RPG by Atlus. Having played a number of strategy RPGs in the past (including Fire Emblem, Disgaea, and Final Fantasy Tactics) I was expecting more of the same. Instead, I encounted an innovative game that perfectly blends an Atlus Shin Megami Tensei RPG (characterized by dark, occult-based story-lines and customizable demon sidekicks, ala pokemon) with a grid-based strategy game.

Although this might sound like an odd combination at first, once you delve into the game proper this odd formula becomes highly addictive and extremely rewarding. Yes, some of the battles are challenging, especially for someone who has limited experience with Shin Megami Tensei games and strategy RPGs. However, even the more challenging battles are quite winnable with a good bit of foresight and a well-equipped party.

For this reason, I'm giving the game a perfect 5 out of 5, as Atlus accomplished exactly what they set out to do: which is to create a genuine Shin Megami Tensei-style adventure that fits perfectly on the DS handheld. Buy it, play it, love it.... you won't be disappointed. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Strategy RPG for the Nintendo DS
A deep story, difficult stages, and even harder bosses. In other words, the Atlus gold standard, except with a slightly different genre.

This game is a little more touchy about endings than the second entry. It's very easy to repeatedly get the bad ending if you don't protect certain characters. Read more

Interesting cast, large variety of possible outcomes and endings. Not as streamlined as the second devil survivor, but is fun to play anyway, if you are a fan of Atlus series.
