5.0 out of 5 stars Great RPG March 27, 2010
By Rumi
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
SMT: Strange Journey is shaping up to be a great RPG for me. The game is completely turn-based, so you have time to ponder your actions when battle commences. You can't change your equipment during battle though. So when you enter a new dungeon area, you may indeed find that you're improperly equipped to deal with the new creatures you meet. Plus, new demons you see will be an indistinct blob or haze because you know nothing about them. Only by fighting them or recruiting them and using them in battle can you analyze them enough to know all of their strengths and weaknesses. The second time you meet them you will be able to see their physical appearance and be more likely to succeed in talking to them.

You control the game predominantly with the D-pad. The dungeon map builds itself as you progress and with the stylus you can move the map around on the lower screen. (the map can be *much* larger than the screen) It would have been nice to have added your own notations/icons to the map for areas that you found something you need to return to later. But alas that is not the case. Nevertheless, the game is so good, I don't fret about it. I simply keep some paper nearby to jot down a note if I need to. (So far though, I wouldn't have needed to annotate the maps with anything above what the game already builds for you as you explore. So this might be an irrelevant concern. I'll just have to wait and see as the missions and maps get more complex)

The demon fusion system is addictive and negotiating with the demons you meet can also be strategic process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome and unique game experience March 26, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So far I've played this game for about 10 hours and I highly recommend it. One reason for this is that the story is very fresh and mature so older gamers will definitely not be disappointed as it does have some disturbing moments which are conveyed fairly well through text. In a way this game reminds me of Aliens (#2) as the premise of the story goes somewhat like this. A group of soldiers and scientists is sent off to investigate a phenomenon and is shortly afterwards in a fight for survival while trying to figure things out as they go.
For those familiar with the Megaten games this one brings back all of the awesome elements that make for a unique megaten game. Demon recruitment and negotiation is back front and center with variety in the negotiations thrown in for good measure. For example if you try to recruit a demon (after fusing) and you want to save some money the dialogue options will be different for the most part to ensure that you do really get to know the subtle likes and dislikes of each potential demon recruit. Also there is a bit of Metroid Prime in this game as well as you go about collecting upgrades for your Demonica suit which will allow you to scan and find new passages in certain areas. The music and sound effects are top notch and very foreboding which is also helped out by the fact that this game is not necessarily easy, but at the same time it's not throw your DS at the wall difficult. The difficulty will definitely keep you on your toes though especially since when you go to a new area new demons aren't visible at all, but rather a spark like entity that you have no real idea about until you manage to defeat it and its identity is revealed to you. This game also has variety in it's dungeons so you don't see the same thing over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta negotiate with em all! April 3, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
SMT: Strange Journey is quite strange itself. I'm new to the Shin Megami Tensei series and this game is an excellent first impression. The story starts off fast and great, with many scenes in its first half that move along nicely. The controls are easy and the battle system not too complicated, but the best part is the demon summoning and fusion system. By fusing demons, one can create more powerful creatures and then use those to create even more powerful demons. I will say that the game was quite hard for me, especially demons that had instant death abilities, and that being said save often! Also the story begins to lag in the last few stages of the game because of the huge mazes to travel through. My overall play time was just over 67 hours so get ready for a very long rpg, but surely one that fans of the series and even new fans like me will enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the strange box art -- this game rocks! April 11, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly I have to share that I was playing this game when all of the sudden the ground was shaking and rolling -- I seriously thought "Wow Atlus is really good..who knew they put motion stuff in the DSi! Wait a minute -- the DSi doesn't have motion sensing..that's an earthquake!" Lo and behold I was so into this game that it took me a few seconds to realize it was a real earthquake and not the game rolling and shaking! Kids and I did the proper earthquake drill and everyone is fine...and I didn't realize until after that I had my DSi XL the whole time in my hand with Strange Journey on!

So as a gamer mom in my 40's I initially ignored this title (although I've liked others in the SMT series) because of the wacky oddball cover art. It looked like some sort of weird mech thing and was not appealing at all. I even ignored the Atlus Faithful emails I kept getting after I found out this is first person since that usually makes me nauseous. Well then my vacation happened and I was needing a great game to get me through. This was sort of the last one on the used shelves thing -- but I knew it could go back if I didn't like it to that other game store so I thought I'd give it a try. I barely came up for air and to order the pizza for the kids dinner so they wouldn't starve! Whoa. This game is addictive!

Compared to its sister title this is much more of a dungeon crawler as others have pointed out. The maps remind me of Etrian Odyssey (another Atlus title) but on this one the game maps for you -- you don't have to do it yourself. The music and ambiance of the game is much more adult than most other things I've played on the DS -- although so far it seems like the thematics are why this was rated an M.
