WP writes: "Shin Megami Tensei is a franchise that has earned quite a name among RPG fans, due to a large number of high-quality entries. Nocturne and the Persona are regarded as some of the most interesting and challenging JRPGs on the market, but we've never actually gotten the early Megami Tensei games in English-speaking countries. The closest would be Persona, which has a lot in common with the early entries in the franchise, but quite a few differences as well. The earlier SMT games resembled Wizardry meets Pokémon, combining first-person dungeon exploration with monster-raising. Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is a return to the older SNES style of Megami Tensei. It's quite a bit different from Persona or Nocturne, but it's shaping up to be one of the most addictive RPGs on the DS."
