I was excited to play this game, since I've always heard the Shin Megami Tensei series described as "legendary", and I generally enjoy remade games with their emphasis on storyline combined with updated graphics and gameplay.
This game preserved the worst of old-style RPGs. The interface is clunky, the graphics are poor, and while the storyline idea is good, the execution is terrible. When I realized the slot machine mini-game was much more fun than the actual game itself, I realized I'd made a mistake.
The continuity of the story is lousy (really, where did Mark come up with a battle-axe? Was he just bringing it to school fun, or was he planning a massacre before the demons broke out?)
Perhaps the others in the series are better, but this one was awful. Avoid it.
I started the game very excited being the fact alot of people said this game was fun.. The furthest I got was wondering around the hospital not knowing where to go, I got so annoyed in the 1st 10 minutes after I ran around aimlessly not knowing where to go, or exactly what to do, I got up turned the game off sealed it back in the envelope and put in back on its way to gamefly. H O R R I B L E game!
