Graphically, Digital Devil Saga 2 doesn’t change the formula of the original. The stylized cel-shading is still present and provides a low key, yet powerful presentation. As with the last game, the real “star” is the art style, which is imaginative and very unique for current RPGs, which tend to either want to go the way of realism or anime. DDS2 instead straddles the fence between the two and looks great doing it.
Character voices are still well done and well acted. None of the performances are phoned in, and help to keep the game’s story on track. You actually begin to feel for the characters instead of just flipping through a bunch of dialogue to get to the next battle. Music is just as good as the last game and features a few old tracks as well as some new ones.
