Parents should keep kids away from this one. Digital Devil Saga 2 features gore-splattered rooms, cannibalism and breasts with teeth. There's a heavy dose of unorthodox religion (God can be controlled by an outside force), and characters say the s-word more often than the doctors on Nip/Tuck do.
Gamers new to the series will have no trouble getting used to the battle system. However, if they haven't played the first Digital Devil Saga, they'll miss out on some of the story. Nor will they receive any of the special bonuses players get if they've completed the first game.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers won't have much trouble playing this gme. Battling is done via text menues and most of the cutscenes have subtitles. But the keyword here is "most." Some scenes, which look like they come from the original Digital Devil Saga, have no text at all.
