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.
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.Read more ›
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. :)

I like this game but don't love it. Sometimes it feels like I'm playing a pokemon game with the demon auctions and merging. The characters are alright, the story is cool. Read morePublished 16 days ago by APL

Seems like a fun game. Haven't decided if it is an rpg like game. Maybe the beginning is just a lot of tutorial.Published 12 months ago by Honesty-counts
Absolutely the best retro game i have played recently. Turn-based grid battle system not as annoying as one might think. Like the demon fusing system. Read morePublished 14 months ago by D. F. Carnahan
