    This game is not in 3D! There is a great 3D animated intro, but after that the game pretty much takes place on the bottom screen. I am a huge Shin Megami fan, and skipped the DS version of Devil Survivor, so the new version was one of the reasons I bought a 3DS. The game itself plays like all the other SMT games, collecting/fusing demons, with the added element of grid based srpg battles where when you do face your enemy, the battle plays out like any other SMT game. The game itself is on par with the other SMT games, and more animated than Strange Journey, so if 3D is no big deal and you just need a good jrpg, you will be very happy with this title.
    The biggest disappointment is that this is a remake of a game that just came out a couple years ago, on a new system that is selling itself on new technology (3D), and wasn't remade to take advantage of that technology. Ghost Recon did an amazing job of taking the standard SRPG grid and turning it into 3D eye candy and that was a launch game! This game was delayed a few months after the original release date, so I was at least expecting something similar. This is the most disappointed I've been with Atlus ever.

    FINALLY! a 3D game that is not in 3D. Seriously, why charge 39.99 for a 3DS game when only the opening and the demon fusing segments are in 3D?? Save your money and keep the DS version from a couple years ago.

    You're better off getting the DS version as it's basically a direct port and the lack of 3d (Save for the demon fusing and other small 3d bits) doesn't make it worth getting. only reason i'd suggest trying it is if you loved this game on the DS and want that 1 extra day. past that, the game is a decent tactical rpg. the characters feel fleshed out well enough and the voice acting wasn't ear-bleedingly awful. the graphics are pretty much the same as the DS copy. in all seriousness, this game should have been passed by or at the very least given an overhaul. Altus, i would think, is getting lazy with this one. save your money, get the DS version... you'll get (almost) the exact same experience but you'll be saving money and telling companies like Altus to not be lazy gits and actually give us some actual 3d for a 3d game.

    Devil Survivor Overclocked is a game that leaves a mark for his campaign, combat system and its mechanics. Being an improved version of the original production for the DS, it is always evident a graphical composition below the current production standard for 3DS.

    The narrative conceit of Devil Survivor Overlocked is an interesting one. [Issue#142, p.122]

    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked is quite a good game, but in the end still somewhat disappointing as a remake.
