    Classic Shin Megami Tensei Dungeon Crawler

    Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux is a remake of a spin-off title that was initially released on the Nintendo DS in 2010, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. Although this game is played as a dungeon crawler and differs from the usual play style of the more recent Shin Megami Tensei releases on the Nintendo 3DS, it does a good job of returning the series to its beginnings when the games were all dungeon crawlers. The main difference between this game and the original 2010 version is the addition of an extra dungeon and additional endings that can be unlocked based on your interactions with the newly introduced character, Alex. Pros: - Adjustable difficulty settings. - Ability to save almost anywhere at any time. - Improved dungeon designs. - Extended campaign mode that offers several hours of gameplay. Cons: - The likelihood of successful demon negotiations are more based on your character's "alignment" (lawful, neutral, chaotic) rather than your ability to make the right choices. - No Turn Press bonuses for hitting an enemy's weakness. - Co-Op Attacks depend on your demons' alignments. While not perfect, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux offers a long and satisfying campaign that includes several endings while making use of its several enhancements. I highly recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of the series or who is interested in it.

    I'm not gonna lie, I was skeptical of the new character they added but they compliment the story quite well actually, plus they added a whole new dungeon that's perfect for training your demons. This game is by far my favorite of the entire series, they really make use of that M rating. You get to witness the true savagry of demons, and man. This game was worth every penny I spent on it.

    SMT Strange Journey is a RPG published by Atlus originally developed over a decade ago for the Nintendo DS. This title is a complete remake of said game for the new Nintendo 3DS. I'm only a few hours in, but am impressed by the updated graphics and musical score. The original Nintendo DS game was massive and took many hours to complete, and I'm expecting the same from this updated title as well.

    This is an updated remake, and I did play the original that came out 10 years ago. This is worth getting for the update since there are new story lines and demons added. Much richer game play this time around, and includes the Japanese voice acting. Sadly, no English voice acting.

    There are problems with the core game in how it isn't user friendly, but as a fan of the original, I am happy this game got a rerelease. I'm mostly a fan of the aesthetic and story structure. Only the hardcore and those who've played everything else need apply.

    The game is great and the updated characters convo is a nice improvement and the battle system is more friendly for newcomers to the series. Shin megami tensei...nuff said a must buy for the fans and a nice dark starting point for those interested in jumping in

    I have been enjoying this game for about 30 hours so far. It is a decent Shin Megami Tensei spin off. It is not quite as good as the mainline games, but better than some of the other spin offs I have played. Overall, worth the buy.

    I love this series, I've been following it since PS2. This is such a great game for 3DS right now. The storyline and characters are engaging and I simply sink into the game to pass a few hours in complete contentment.
