    Part old-school, part MegaTen, Strange Journey walks a lot of fine lines but comes out a great experience.

    Strange Journey is a huge dungeon crawler that will keep you exploring for hours and also level grinding for hours too.

    Megaten returns to its roots with a game that is held back only by its portable nature, not by its designer's ambition.

    Rated on January 12, 2011 by taxonomic

    Shin Megami Tensei + Etrian Odyssey, doesn't do either one as well by itself, but the combination is fun.

    Rated on February 08, 2011 by Swoosie

    SMT:Strange Journey is meant to be something different, yet familiar, and it succeeds. It combines the dark story, brutal combat, and demon summoning/fusion aspects of SMT with the dungeon crawling of...
