  1. An extremely fun game. The gameplay is unique and plays fairly well, the cast is fantastic, and the visuals do the job. It’s filled with the addicting gameplay of the SMT series, yet provides a different enough type of game that it doesn’t feel like more of the same. [JPN Import]
  2. It’s an action packed romp that has all the trappings of the Megaten series, but a bit less of the doom and gloom the series is known for.
  3. A solid, if silent, installment in the critically-acclaimed Shin Megami Tensei series, Devil Summoner delivers the goods but falls short of greatness.
  4. Unmistakably an SMT title: It still features the distinctive art of Kazuma Kaneko, demon fusion, and an atmospheric story. It may not have the gameplay or challenge that fans have come to expect, but it does a good job of taking small steps toward the mainstream without renouncing its roots.
  5. The newest installment in the Shin Megami Tensei series suffers from repetitive battles and a slow-rolling narrative, but its fascinating premise makes it worth a look.
  6. A fairly average RPG, rescued from mediocrity by some unique mechanics, an oddball plot and the dozens of demons at youru disposal. [Apr 2007, p.81]
  7. It’s probably not the opus of the series, but it’s a good enough case to warrant further investigation.
