Never before released in North America, this long-awaited entry in the acclaimed Devil Summoner series takes players into a future in which technology and otherworldly forces meet in a macabre fusion of cyberpunk futurism and gothic horror. A first-person sci-fi RPG epic, Soul Hackers tells of a city held up as a beacon of humanity's triumph of technology, but with an infernal secret. In this would-be utopia, a group of hackers takes on a centuries-old mystic society, and a battle for control over humanity’s fate is about to begin.

I had no idea what to expect going into this game. Aside from a brief experience with Persona 3 and Nocturne, I've actually never gotten too into the Shin Megami Tensei games. But since a new game was coming out, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to jump in and see what the series was really about. Basically, I'll tell you that Soul Hackers is another great game in the 3DS's growing line up of RPGs, though it does show its age in some parts.
The story takes place in an experimental city that is based on internet connectivity. You are part of a group of hackers and you hack your way into becoming a beta tester for a program called Paradigm X, which is a virtual city. You can think of it as the RPG equivalent of Second Life, just without the large virtual world to explore. Naturally, like any sci-fi plot, there are shady and sinister events happening behind the scenes involving demons, corrupt corporations and evil secret societies. And by hacking your way into this experimental program, you end up getting yourself caught in the middle of it all. It doesn't exactly sound like the most original plot out there, but I found it to be quite engaging for what it is.
What adds to the plot is the voice acting. It's not the best acting in the world, but considering the style and tone of the game, I think the actors did a really good job. However, there are a few exceptions, particularly the old hag you meet in one of the stores. It sounds like the voice actress is trying really hard to force a creepy grandma voice and it just comes off as awkward and annoying to listen to. I had to turn down the volume each time I saw her just because I couldn't stand her voice. Other than that, everybody else sounds fine.Read more ›

This game is pretty much what I expected. It's SMT with some unique gimmicks.
The extra dungeon at the end of the game really caught me off-guard, though. Read more
