"What JRPGs should be"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is what JRPGs should be.

The background of the game is just as Sherrin has said. What they haven't told you is how atmospheric the game is and how it draws you in. The environments blend together extremely well and with the unique graphical style help create a world you will find very attractive and very believable.

The large number of demons help populate this world and adds an exotic flavour which will keep you coming back to this game. Taken from many mythological sources, these demons are visually appealing (well, most of them) and make the game what it is.

The game features quite a lot of customisability compared to most jrpgs. No, you can't change your main character's face or gender, but you can adjust all his stats and skills and make pretty much all the decisions for him. You really start feeling like ‘this is my character, these are my demons’ when you're into the game and you get to choose how it all ends.

The writing is also good, with most demons given a personality that feels believable and appropriate. Soundtrack is very appropriate, with a mix of rock and organ music it really gets you into that mood of a post-apocalyptic world.

The game does have a steep difficulty at times. You will find yourself grinding now and then, but it will not be enough to keep you away. The game will suck you in until you finish it, and then you will start a new game just to beat those old bosses again!

I've gained a new found appreciation for JRPG's and I tell you that SMT: Lucifers Call won't disappoint. Scored this game for a fraction of the price it was worth so I'm pretty stoked.

I found it weird at first by the lack of dialogue, but I soon got over it and enjoyed the weird demonic creatures that you face and later recruit.



Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifer's Call is actually the third game in the series, which first appeared on the Super Famicom. Remakes of the first two titles were recently released in Japan for the PlayStation and Game Boy Advance. While Nocturne continues the series' tradition of a modern-day post-apocalyptic setting, demonic overtones and mature themes, the PlayStation 2 version brings it into the next-generation of gaming with mind-blowing graphics and refinement of the gameplay system.

Set in post-apocalyptic Tokyo, the game begins as nearly the entire population of the world is annihilated by a global catastrophe called the Conception. Now, the fate of the entire world lies on the shoulders of one boy, who must battle his way through opposing demonic forces and shape the world to come... or destroy it.
