Personal review
First game in the very successfull (at least in Japan) Megami Tensei RPG-series. It is a typical dungeon crawler set in a modern period, but uses all classic weaponry (swords etc.) and magic you would only expect in medieval fantasy settings. The story, based on a Japanese novel, is about the main character, accidentally summoning demons to the world and now you try to get rid of them together with a female friend. Being a typical dungeon crawler the game features many very complicated designed dungeon mazes and not much story. A good amount of level grinding is required of course, but an auto attack feature makes simple fights surprisingly fast, which is good. The most prominent feature of this game (and the whole Megami Tensei series) is your ability to talk to enemies/demons and make them join your party. You can even fuse two demons to create a new - and hopefully stronger - creature. Graphics and sound are good for a game from 1987. If you are a hardcore dungeon crawler fan you will like this game, everyone else is warned that this game is rather difficult and lacks the comforts or story of modern RPGs.
