When you say "Shin Megami Tensei", most gamers today will probably respond with "Persona." However, the MegaTen brand stretches back to the 80's, and virtually none of the other games are similar to those popular spin-offs. In fact, up until "Nocturne" hit the PS2 in the early 2000's, the series exclusively relied on first-person dungeon-crawling, excessive level-grinding, and punishing resource management coupled with elaborate demon training, a mechanic which Nintendo would successfully ape in their "Pokemon" games.

This is an important introduction, I feel, because "Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers" is a straight-up port of a 1997 Sega Saturn game, predating the birth of the "Persona" series, and the modern overhaul which would bring the MegaTen franchise into the 21st century. As such, it's a weird transitional piece that, despite its flaws, serves as an interesting peek into what would make the series so famous in the coming years.

Amami City is now the most technologically advanced place on the planet, thanks to every household now being connected by a broadband (!) network. Not only that, but people can now visit each other via the internet in a virtual town called "Paradigm X." Paradigm X houses movies, online shopping, and forums where people can assume different identities. But there's a sinister evil lurking beneath this seemingly perfect cyber utopia. The sinister corporation behind it is using the code to summon demons, causing them to materialize in the physical world and wreak havoc. As a member of the secretive hacker group Spookies, you must arm yourself with a portable computer and capture demons in order to fight back.

As someone who has followed the Megami Tensei series for ages - often from afar - I should point out how gratifying it is just to see the franchise become popular enough to warrant modern ports of 15 year-old software. The Persona games have really blown up here in the States, and they've brought the whole Mega-Ten family with them. And it is most welcome. Of course, there are reasons it took the series so long to win over Western audiences to begin with, and Soul Hackers contains ALL of them. Anyone not already in love with the Mega-Ten brand should probably keep a wide berth and start with Persona 3 or 4, which are available on competing hardware.

Don't get me wrong; Soul Hackers is a fine game, but it's a fine game from 1997 with all of the baggage that entails. The production values that once rocked the Saturn are now artifacts, and the presence of level-grinding and random party wipes might be entirely alien to a generation of gamers raised on more user-friendly software. Here's an example of a battle that can sometimes go down in Soul Hackers:

*Our heroes, at around 85% health, encounter a pack of demons.*
*One of the demons, not wounded at all, opens the combat with its Last Resort kamikaze attack, killing the player character and two others just like that.*
*Game over screen. Please load your save from 15 minutes ago and try again!*

The Mega-Ten games are NOT your friends. They want your blood. And this is actually one of the more moderate entries in the franchise, so you've been warned. While this isn't really the place for tips, I'll just say this: once you get the chip that allows you to save wherever you want, plug it in ASAP and never let go.

Let this be known, Soul Hackers is a direct port of a classic RPG from the 90's. The game is not Personna 4 Golden - which is a remake. The story, however is excellent - Soul Hackers is set in a future where technology and otherworldly forces meet in a macabre fusion of cyberpunk futurism and gothic horror. If you're looking for a rewarding challenge, then welcome to the world of Soul Hackers.

Soul Hackers has a number of antiquated mechanics, but none of them are impossible or overly difficult to deal with. So long as you're willing to put up with a bit of age, the story will pull you in - like no RPG has done for me recently.

Soul Hackers is a lengthy, mature RPG - and the 3DS needs all of these it can get. Bonus is the deluxe packaging - an audio CD and full color booklet are bonus materials rarely included in video games these days. If you collect RPGs - this one is a must for your collection.

Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers was a Sega Saturn RPG that never saw a release in the West, even though it saw ports to subsequent consoles in Japan, such as Sony's PSX. It's a loosely related sequel to another Sega Saturn video game that also never saw release in the West. Finally, however, Atlus was able to bring Soul Hackers to the West to join other titles in the Nintendo 3DS' increasingly incredible library of games.

This game is awesome in a number of ways. The mix of occult elements with noirish cyberpunk futurism makes for a very unique backdrop for the interesting story, which involves a group of young hackers unwittingly getting involved in a vast, demonic conspiracy. The gameplay is very old-school, with first-person navigation in dungeons, turn-based battles, and of course the things that make a SMT games unique: demon negotiation, summoning, and fusion. It is entertaining to engage in the frequently oddball conversations with different types of demons, who sport a variety of personality types. Props to Atlus U.S.A. for their awesome English translation of the script.

Graphically, the game is dated (this IS a port of a Sega Saturn game released in 1997), but enough fresh paint has been applied to this title to make it look decent enough. The audio is a real treat, with some stunning music and quite impressive English voice-acting for most of the game's dialogue. I would recommend wearing earbuds or headphones while playing this, though, especially if you're playing this on an XL, which tends to have quieter speakers. The audio in this game really deserves to be savored.

The 3D effect is subtle. It's not terribly noticeable, but it does add some depth to the dungeons and, of course, makes the dialogue boxes and character portraits pop.
