This review is from: Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga (PS2) (Video Game)
Simply a fantastic, epic game that has many parallels to Final Fantasy yet still has such a unique spin of its own. The graphics are clean, appealing yet so different; A cell-style hybrid with realistically rendered characters and environments.

This is no level-grinding, X bashing game. To defeat your opponents you need sound tactics backed up by the skills (mantras) you learn throughout the game. Like other RPGs you characters become stronger by winning battles, but boosted if you `devour' your enemies in combat. Targeting your enemy's weakness will award your party more turns, attacking in long chains, and by carefully equipping skills you can unlock additional combos. The range of abilities is enormous, and so is the way you can play the game. And with all the optional extra tasks and bosses, it's easy to build up 100 hours of game play.

Some might say that having the story line split between DDS and DDS2 is a drawback, but I feel it's quite the opposite. Loading completed game data from DDS1 into DDS2 will unlock extra options, items and even a bonus character. And with both games at £17 or lower, I'm amazed more people haven't discovered this gem of a series.All RPG lovers will be thoroughly impressed by Digital Devil Saga.
