      Excellent dungeon crawler!

      As many may know, this is a remake of an older Nintendo DS game. The game is part of the Shin Megami Tensei franchise, and as such, it features multiple classic elements from other games in the series like demon collection (think Pokemon - gonna catch 'em all but with deities/gods/fantastic creatures from different religions/parts of the world), demon fusion (fuse 2 demons to create a stronger one, which inherits skills from its parents), demon compendium (register your demons to summon them on the fly), demon negotiation (talk to the demons during fights to negotiate with them for items, healing, or a chance to have them join your party), intensive dungeon crawling (in this case, first person) with all traps you can think of (teleports, damaging floors, trapdoors, etc), phases of the moon (different phases produce random effects during fights and demon negotiation), etc. This game, however, is more story-driven (a sci-fi story, which is very well told) and it features a lot of dialog. The English text translation was already great in the original and it is still true in this version; however, voice acting is new in this one (although only Japanese voices are included; there are no English voices at all). For those that played the original, there is an incentive to play again; as there are 3 new endings, a new dungeon, a few more demons to collect, and a new character/storyline. Also, Atlus made some improvements on the way skills are inherited when doing a demon fusion. Overall, it's a good title with a lot of hours of fun. I strongly recommend it to those that love dungeon crawlers or are fans of the franchise.

      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 was never able to play the original, so this was a nice surprise release. The additional improvements are nice and help offset the pace a bit. Just be aware that the introduction can take about an hour to get through.
