Worth Playing: "As a dungeon crawler, Soul Hackers is not dissimilar to Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. However, considering their original release dates, perhaps it is more correct to say that Strange Journey is closer to Soul Hackers. Soul Hackers has multiple smaller dungeons instead of a large super-dungeon. Players go through various plot events and explore a world map in between exploring dungeons, so the game feels much closer to Persona than Strange Journey. There is a massive dungeon that contains hidden demons, but it mostly exists as a place to power up between plot dungeons."
