Thanks to Gamestop, for Raising the price back to $15 after just a week. Doesn't surprise me though. Hopefully some people got it at $10.
I played this personally, it is an above average dungeon crawl, with a good sci-fi story, 3 different endings, tons of hidden bosses, and optional quests. Should take 30 hours easy to finish on a speed run, more than double that to acomplish most everything in the game. New game + lets you keep all your demons and valuables. A bargain at $15.

Do all new copies come with the soundtrack? I see no mention of it on the website?

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

Above average..... LOL; it's one of the best RPG's in recent times. It's incredibly hard though.

Well, closest New copy is about 20 miles away. Though store up the street has a used copy.

Was planning to do the 50% trade in promo anyway, guess i'll grab this instead of a fodder game. I love Devil Survivor Overclocked on 3DS

I purchased a brand new copy of this at Gamestop last February for $14.99. It remains unopened and I can confidently say that it'll probably remain in my backlog for the rest of my life.

    Look at that deal. It's so great!

It's a really hard game for a modern player who's used to quick powerups, but it's pretty damn interesting and scary. Good luck finding a new copy because when the game dropped to $13 last year, my copy had the cardboard box broken, but everything else was kept in the drawer.

Not sure if I saw this new or used off the top of my head, but if this is rare, makes me regret not picking it up when I saw it the other week at gamestop. While I knew the name SMT, I never heard of this game. Granted, I haven't followed the portable market in forever. And watch, now I'll never see it in stock again. :razz:

This is the digital age, nothing is rare. I also don't think Atlus CC games have been elusive since Persona 3.

No new copies available in my area. There is a used copy nearby, which I doubt will have the soundtrack, let alone the case+artwork and instruction manual.

Might just hold out for the 3DS version if I ever get a 3DS.

Oops...I was thinking of Devil Survivor and Devil Survivor: Overclocked. Maybe that should be a hint to the game's developer to make a 3DS version of Strange Journey.

OP, you might want to change that used price since I see it for a dollar cheaper at $7.99.

I've never been very interested in first-person old-school dungeon crawlers like this or the Etrian Odyssey games, but is it really that good?

You should take a look at Hexyz Force on the PSP. Hard to find, quite $$$ if you do.
End of line.

I've never been a fan of first person dungeon crawlers, but since it's a shin megami game I picked it up when it first came out and found it to be very enjoyable. The only reason I didn't beat it was because I made it to a part late in the game where I had to go around and collect a few things for some NPC inside of this annoying maze with teleporters and holes. I tried using a map I found online but my eyes were still spinning in their sockets as I tried to make heads or tails of the damn maze. Fun game though. :roll:

Yeah, that post was back in march of 2010 on that forum. And they said they were rushing out new ones, so one would guess that the second run was good to go.

The cd was only included with first run copies but I doubt their was even a second run. I believe the issue with the cd was that it was just mp3 files on a cd instead of a actual burnt music disc so depending on what device you're using to play it, it might work fine.

Make sure you guys buy it new (if you can). GameStop has a horrible habit of throwing their boxes away for the used DS games for some fucking stupid reason.

I believe it's because a DS box is something like 10 times the size of a DS cart, and so it saves them an assload of space without too many people caring enough to refuse buying a game without the case.
