    It's a saga that only insatiable hardcore genre addicts will garner any real fulfillment from.
  2. 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]
  3. 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]
  4. 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 »

    Maps are more a little more varied than part one and I believe there is more enemies in this game, although the plot gets a little confusingMaps are more a little more varied than part one and I believe there is more enemies in this game, although the plot gets a little confusing feels like I need to read into it more online. Same as part one for nocturne and strange journey fans not persona 3/4 fans. Full Review »
