wanna try one of them.. which is the best ya?
Just play both.
But I liked Devil Survivor more, and found it more of a challenge.
DS is a SRPG, SJ is a 1st person dungeon crawler.
DS is harder than SJ, imo.
They're both excellent, and have got a fantastic story.
Just try both and continue playing the one you prefer,
But note that SJ has got, like, an hour of text in the beginning.
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey follows up to it's predecessors, the RPG/Dungeon Crawler genre
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor it's a Strategy RPG, there is no dungeon crawling.
Personal preference I guess. I played both (finished DS and about 10 hours into SJ), and I'm finding Strange Journey is more my thing. Exploring is exciting to me, and the negotiation system is interesting. But if you're more a strategy guy, then DS is probably more up your alley.
u guys just make my decision easier.. i don't like Strategy RPG, so i guess Strange Journey is my thing! Thanks!
SJ is a straightup throwback to the old-school SMT games, a dungeon crawler. And as with dungeon crawling, there's gonna be an assload of traps and random encounters coming your way.
DS is kind of like FF Tactics in that its battle layout is similar. The characters and storytelling are really, really good compared to SJ, which is pretty wordy and unnecessarily long at times.
Just my two cents; I liked both, but I'm gonna have to go with DS on this one.
Lol yeah if you don't like strategy RPGs then devil survivor is DEFINITELY not your game.
It's incredibly strategic and difficult.
Devil Survivor is like persona, with SMT battles I think.
SMT is like typical SMT battles.
Both are fun
oh shat!!!!! random encounter i also not my thing.. guess have to ditch both!!
But it's not like pokemon, where the random encounters happen every 2 seconds. SJ has a great encounter rate.
Also there is an indicator which tells you how close you are to the next battle, I cannot tell you how many times it has saved me from wasting items or dying.
Also in the game there are sub apps that either reduce or beef up the encounter rate....
