Devil Survivor Overclocked the unsung gem

Devil Survivor Overclocked is more or less a rehashing of the original Devil Survivor with additional content. The major differences between the games would be the polished and brighter in game sprites (Though little improvements in graphics as a whole) and the inclusion of English and Japanese voice actors which help break down the walls of text. The game takes place over the course of seven days or potentially eight days, you and your friends Yuzu and Atsuro will be trying to survive a mass lockdown of Tokyo, trapped inside with blood thirsty demons all the while trying to uncover the truth behind the incident. During the 8-12 hours of this game you will be participing all manner of battles from main story, to optional, to grinding battles. This game does require a bit of grinding but honestly, not all too much compared to some, and it uses a fairly simple combat system so it even accommodates to casual rpg players. All in all, the game has enough alternate paths and endings to keep the game fresh and new upon replays and it's nice to see how drastically the endings will become depending on the choices you made the days prior. There are plenty of demons for you to summon, 100+, and they come with Magic skills, passive skills, racial skills or just mad skills in general. This game is amazing and if you like Persona series I'd seriously considering picking up this great 3DS title.

A little different then your standard rpg. I like the demon fuse aspect. I would have held on to it for a second play through but I want to get the new FF13.

5 out of 7 gamers (71%) found this review helpful

Pros: Very interesting story, full voicework, lots of demons to capture and train, combat is engaging, the Atlus touch

Cons: Doesnt utilize the 3DS capabilities, some of the voicework is annoying, combat can get really hard (even on the easy setting), very limited exploration

Overall: Fans of Shin Megami Tensen and Atlus should try this game, very engaging story and combat.
