IGN writes: "Even though Devil Summoner 2 takes hits for being repetitive and sporting outdated visuals, I still sincerely enjoyed its setting and style. I think the feel of the game as a whole makes it worthwhile to check out, especially because the PS2's release list has all but withered away.
If you don't mind the repetitious text and the somewhat bland demon mechanics, Devil Summoner 2 can actually be a lot of fun and has the potential for some serious level-grinding, which is always a strangely rewarding element in the RPG landscape. Also, the game comes with an adorable plushie of Raidou (for the time being) and the whole package is only 40 bucks. I'd say that's a pretty reasonable deal for a game that lasts for more than 35 to 40 hours".
