The look of the game is particularly striking. There's none of your bright cartoonish cuteness going on here. Instead you'll find some massively sophisticated vistas, characters, environments and enemies all brought to pastel-shaded anime life by the great Japanese artist Kazuma Kaneko.

The decidedly creepy yet beautiful visuals really make Digital Devil Saga stand out from the crowd and the look of the characters and cut-scenes even surpasses Lucifer's Call.
