    Excellent RPG in line with the best.

    This review comes years after the game did , however, it has made a large impression on me. With great game play and graphics this game is top on my list for the PS2. The only drawback is a minimal story. The game ... Read Full Review

    Not quite Nirvana

    Digital Devil Saga is a game that will both frustrate and reward you in equal doses. The game carries on the great combat system present in Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, however along with that it carries over the instan... Read Full Review

    Gothic style RPG with an amazing OST, insanely high difficulty. Its a Shin Megaten all right!

    Digital Devil Saga's not your everyday turn based RPG. with a much darker tone aimed at a mature audience, DDS's not your run of the mill RPG also. Its got a lot that non-RPG vets may not know about, i.e. youve got to ki... Read Full Review

    NO other game come close to FF & this no better.

    This game is quite averaga in the sense of design. The main problem is the gameplay & story is too draggy & not quite intriguing as other RPG games. Moreover, you will find the ending badly crafted & you will have doubt ... Read Full Review

    Fantastic JRPG with one of the best soundtracks ever made.

    I didn't get wind of the Shin Megami Tensei series until one of my friends complained that he had to pay nearly $80 for a copy of DDS. I looked it up, and saw that most who played it were quite pleased, and I was looking... Read Full Review
