The Good, The Bad, The Overclocked

I rented this game without having played the previous version for the DS.

The Good:
I had over 60 hours of game play time saved once I beat the game and that's not counting any resets or deaths. So it is not a short game. I don't really like games that are too easily beaten. Voice acting throughout most of the game (even if the voices may sound a little off for the character). The difficulty starts off easy until you get somewhat through then it gets harder and harder. Also has great replay value and the story is better than I expected. you can also choose slightly different paths each playthrough. I would very likely rent this game again

The Bad:
Very little 3D in the game. The only time I can remember seeing any 3d is when fusing Demons. Not too much exploration. Voice acting is a little off on some characters. I would have cast different voices but still not too bad.

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.

Most People Say that making the original from the 3DS was pointless, I say that it was worth it. Overclocked is an awesome remake I played the original and I liked it. Now the remake was even better. While true there's barely any 3D parts but that's okay. For one RPG's on the DS happen other BOTTOM SCREEN! the top screen is for info reasons-so it didn't surprise me that they didn't do much 3D. Two: your not suppose to have 3D on all the time, it strains the eyes and wastes energy. Three: Its an RPG! It's suppose to be about the 3D, It's all about the story and Game play as well as art design and epic cut scenes. But let's get back to subject. Concept (9): I love it, the fact that your trapped in a city having only demons that you decide to recruit to survive is cool and unique, multiple endings is always great too! Let me remind you that the game gives you a lot of hard choices that can alter the game greatly i.e this one time when I had to choose to kill the demons or angels or humans...I killed the angels, why? you'll see (: Graphics (8): Graphics are great for this game (Demons are freak en ugly though) I also love the new voice acting they put in it's perfect for every character I especially love midori, haru, and gin. Game play (7): I liked the game play Its pretty simple for a turn base though it gets harder the further you go, And I mean MUCH HARDER as in ANNOYING HARDER...so...keep track of your demons. Oh! That reminds me, there's an option in the game where you have to fuse demons to get stronger demons-hears a tip, level up your MAIN CHARACTER a lot you'll see why he's important. Also keep track of your demons and try to keep the unique ones. Anyway, the game also offers 20 new demons than the first one, some are great. The game also offers the mysterious 8th day, that's interesting. So anyone who payed the original should get the this one or if your new to shin megami, Devil survivor is great for you. Peaceful Days Die...Let's survive...heh good luck.
