If you have never experience a Shin Megami Tensei game, the story will be the most "out there" plot you will ever see. On the other hand, if you are familiar with the series than Strange Journey is just par for the course. However, just because it is familiar territory with the other games in the series, doesn't mean that Strange Journey's story is bad or predictable. The game is an tribute to the older games in the series, and there are many call backs to the earlier titles like the dynamic between the main characters, yourself, Jimenez, and Zelenin mirror that of the Hero, Law Hero, and Chaos Hero in the first SMT game. Yet, Strange Journey still retains it's own identity, favoring more straight up Sci-fi than the Cyberpunk ascetic of games past. Overall, the story is top notch as always in SMT, though is less character focused as say Persona or Devil Survivor. Even so, you won't be disappointed.
