This is a fucking awesome turn based RPG. I am immersed. I did not go to sleep Saturday night. And I recommend this to all of you.

The graphics and music are not up to par with Final Fantasy however the game's originality and mature content more then make up for that. It starts out in modern day Tokyo. You are supposed to meet some friends at a hospital to visit someone. And it is a good thing you were at said hospital because that is where The Conception occured.

The Conception, in a nutshell, is the destruction of the world which must occur before a world can be remade. Everyone outside of the hospital is slain and all that remains of the world is a bubble of chaos loosely based on Tokyo. It is populated entirely by demons. You become a Fiend, or half demon, although all the other NPC humans seem to remain human.

At first I was running around all alone hoping I would run into my human friends ... because I needed a party. Then I realized that was not the case. Other demons join you. During combat you may attempt negotiations with most demons. It's kind of tricky but well worth it. (After all if you didn't try you'd be by yourself.) You may also fuse your demons together to produce more powerful demons. Any demon your level or below - including bosses!! - may join your party through either negotiation or fusion.

Numerous factions war to obtain the right to reshape the world. The choices you make will have a huge factor in what kind of world is eventually created. It's a fun game. Smile

Whoops, forgot that very significant bit of info. I will be checking out more games by Atlus ... they already have a turn based strategy RPG (like Shining Force / FF Tactics) out for PS2 and another one to come out in May I think
