The Junkyard, a neverending war with only the promise of Nirvana to keep the warriors fighting. Everything changes when a mysterious girl appears and the "true" form of the residents of the Junkyard takes hold.

This is how the saga begins in Digital Devil Saga, and it ends on a steep cliffhanger. Digital Devil Saga 2 is the continuation of that story, or in some ways could be considered the real story. This is where things get gritty and real. Questions are answered, but at a price, and by the end of it all you feel like you just got off an intense rollercoaster. I have never played an RPG with as incredible and deep a story as this series.

Regarding the story, if you have not played DDS, please do not cheat yourself of the entire picture. Although there are minor recaps, they do nothing to give justice or true understanding to what happened in the first game and so much of the second game relies on some prior knowledge that although you'll be able to play through and win without any problems, I am not sure you will get the whole message of what the series tries to bring across.

On to the technical, first off, Graphics. If you've played DDS then you know how the graphics in DDS 2 are. Wonderfully done cell shading and great mood inducing dungeons. Everything is brighter and more colorful in DDS 2 than it was in DDS which makes some of the dungeons in DDS 2 even creepier. Atlus did a great job in creating the several of the dungeons, especially the final dungeon which is enormous. There are the occasional "jaggies" depending on what kind of system you are playing on, but then again this isnt designed for Hi-Def, that generation is just around the corner.

Next up, Sound. The music in this game is outstanding.

So, I finally finished the second Digital Devil Saga game. The question may be, should you play the first game before this one? My answer is YES, as they are part of one story and playing them in the wrong order would make nonsense of the plot. Playing the second one alone would also drastically dilute the experience, as there are many references to the events of the first one. So this game is really not for anyone but players of Digital Devil Saga 1.

Ok, with that out of the way, I guess my advice would be to treat DDS1 and DDS2 as a two-disc single game - and buy them both. I think it's a bit of a shame that they did not release both games as a double pack, at least for a limited edition...maybe they will in the future. So for players of the first game, the story continues here. The five main characters have reached "Nirvana" and found that they are no better off than where they first started. So now they want answers, and the story concerns the revelations behind what the Junkyard actually was and where your team has now ended up. As plot twists go, it's actually been done before (I can't tell you which games it resembles to avoid spoilers!), but the resolution of the story is very mature and some scenes are extremely sad.

I won't go into any more detail about gameplay as it's all the same as DDS1 - turn based RPG action with the "press turns" system still as great as ever. You'd have to really like the Shin Megami game world by now though, as this is the third (I'm including Nocturne/Lucifer's Call, here) game for the PS2 so far to use many of the same monsters and battle skills all over again.

Please Note: This review is intended for those who have played the first Digital Devil Saga.

In almost every aspect, Digital Devil Saga II (DDS2) accomplishes the goal of sequels. While DDS1 was certainly an interesting game, it was much too easy (especially for a Shin Megami Tensei game!) and many players felt that although it was a good game, improvements could be made.

DDS2 makes many of these improvements:

1) Music - Some of the music from DDS1 was just ear grinding crap. The pseudo-80's, pseudo-metal guitar riffs got real old, real fast and seemed maddeningly inappropriate for the game. The battle music in particular was aggravatingly irritating. DDS2 makes a dramatic improvement in this regard: the soundtrack is not only bearable, but actually enjoyable to listen to. The soundtrack that shipped with this game may actually see some use, unlike DDS1's sound track, which I used as a coaster, and then as a frisbee.

2) Character Progression - progression is much more engaging and customizable this time around. The mantra system is no longer rigidly linear: DDS2 adopts a grid layout for abilities that allows you to customize your character ability sets much more easily. It's also much easier to see your character's progression this way. New, useful mantras have been added to the game. Additionally, characters have more equipment than just bullets this time around: each character can now equip a ring. Rings give varied bonuses, ranging from stats (+3 magic, +1 vitality, or whatever) to other interesting abilities (autocast kaja abilities, transform/revert doesn't take up a turn panel). FURTHER: rings can be customized by installing gems (think Diablo 2). Suddenly, items in this game became interesting.
