In this review I'll list some of the major improvements Atlus made to the original Devil Survivor in Overclocked:

EIGHTH DAY

Overclocked includes four new eighth day scenarios, which means nearly four new days of battles and plotline!

FULL VOICE ACTING

Every single line in the game has been voiced, and the acting is mostly excellent (with the unfortunate exception of Midori).

NEW DEMONS

Loads of news demons have been added, including:

Ishtar
Black Maria
Susano-o
Baphomet
Yurlungur
Fafnir
Sraosha
Rukh
Huoniao
Mithras
Cabracan
Catoblepas
Tschaggatta
Spriggan
Troll
Lucifuge
Tokebi
Ongyo-ki
Macabre
Jahi

NEW SKILLS

To go with the new demons, loads of new skills were added as well. Some of them, like Vigilant and Shield All+, prove exceedingly beneficial.

TITLES

Essentially, you can earn titles by achieving certain tasks in Overclocked (such as clearing a certain ending or defeating optional bosses), and you can spend the points you earn from your titles on rewards for your next playthrough. This is a fantastic addition and makes you want to keep playing to earn them all.

DEMON COMPENDIUM

One of the most disappointing aspects of Devil Survivor was the lack of a compendium. Atlus thankfully rectified this issue in Overclocked. No more tediously hoping to get lucky with auctions; now you can simply summon any demons you've previously owned.

In addition, you can read about each demon's profile and history. As a mythology buff, I always find reading about a plethora of mythological beings from such diverse cultures fascinating.

And the best improvement of all...

THREE SAVE SLOTS

Thank god Atlus added two more save files! I hated having to overwrite my old game every time I started a new one, and now other people in my family can play too. Seriously, I'm so relieved the developers used the extra storage capacity on things like this rather than pointless 3D effects.

In conclusion, I bought the 3DS for this game, and it was worth every penny. If you enjoy strategy RPGs whatsoever, whether you played the original or not, buy it!

While it is mostly just the ds game published again with a bit of additional content, it is a very solid game with some mechanics that take a bit getting used to, to get one of the many many different endings.
branched paths is always a plus
the art is very nice
and it does take cues from mythologies from various different cultures to open you up to things you have never seen before

The story, voice acting, battle system are all really good. You select where you want to go, have a cutscene, then a possible battle. But before you do any of this you want to configure you teams which consists of purchasing demons for an auction house and fusing two demons together to make a new one. I gave the game 4 stars because I feel it lacks other types of gameplay/mechanics. What I really would have liked is an actually city you walk though rather then selecting where to goto on a map.

Much closer to the mainline games in terms of story and format. The tactics elements are pointless until later in the game, so don't expect anything like fire emblem. Can be challenging at certain parts, but grinding shouldn't be necessary.

I played for over 30 hours and loved every minute, the challenge.. the two concurrent gameplay modes.. excellence. I only did 1 playthrough because it was more of a treat than I could handle.

I don't have much to say about the game itself, haven't played it yet. But be warned some copies are from Canada, so they will have french as well as english on the cover.
