Monday Fun #38: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor (review)

Okay, I actually haven't technically finished the game so I feel kinda bad reviewing it, but I'm up to the probably-final-boss-this-time-no-really, and so have a feel for the game at least, so...

Also, this isn't an *extremely* recent game, although fairly recent - I picked it up when it first came out, then didn't get into it for some reason the first time. I guess I just wasn't in the mood for it? Because it's a cool game, I just must've been non-moodish or something.

Recommendation: I suppose if you are absolutely allergic to JRPGs and/or Tactics-style RPGs you might want to avoid it, since it is both, ditto if the thought of having anything to do with deeemons creeps you out. Otherwise though, I'd say it's worth a try if you own a DS. It's pretty fun, and straightforward (if a bit difficult in combat at times). And really you only have to do as much extraneous level-grinding as you want, since there aren't really random battles unless you specifically go find them intentionally. (Which, well, isn't very random.)

Anyhow.. recommended!
