    It's a saga that only insatiable hardcore genre addicts will garner any real fulfillment from.

    Much better than the last game, and one of the best PS2 RPGs. Let down only by the relentless fighting and steep learning curve. [Feb 2007, p.70]

    Unless you're a disciple of the first "Digital Devil Saga," you'd be better off investing your RPG funds in "FFXII." [Mar 2007, p.116]

    The dark setting just wasn't enough to keep me enthralled, and I found myself longing for an end to the saga. [Nov 2005, p.155]

    Digital Devil Saga 2, while a quality role-playing game, doesn't live up to the legacy of its immediate predecessor.

    Digital Devil Saga returns to kick me in the balls with its random battle encounter rate. Visually appealing, but more of the same from partDigital Devil Saga returns to kick me in the balls with its random battle encounter rate. Visually appealing, but more of the same from part 1, and uses 90% of the same assets. Again, the combat is the best part though we have more of a story this time, only recommended to those who loved the nuts off the first game. Full Review »

    Although the encounter rate is rather high, it has extremely tight combat which more than makes up for the encounter rate. The story isAlthough the encounter rate is rather high, it has extremely tight combat which more than makes up for the encounter rate. The story is wonderful, the cast is great, and the actors do an extremely well job of delivering their lines. The Mantra Grid makes for great customization, allowing you to, literally, learn every ability in the game (aside from special story related abilities). If you finished and enjoyed the first Digital Devil Saga, this is, quite obviously, a must-buy. Full Review »
