Why do the spell animations suck compared to other smt games?

#1vishmarxPosted 5/7/2014 8:29:49 PM
i mean games like nocturne and dds are so old compared to this and
look a stuff like megidoloan,celestial ray,ragnarok,trisagion
and look at their counterparts in the persona games...bleh.
only one i like is morning star

morning star rules

vorpal blade is cool, but it just sucks in 4
samsara, die for me, blak viper are nice too

imo p2 had some of the best skill animations

Persona 4 is as important to the series as the quest of feeding the cat

I actually find DDS and Nocturne's Megidolaon animation to be pretty meh.

Debillitate however...

Magatama Spells have better animation than Dyne Spells. :(

Megidolaon is too small compared to Beelzebub's anime version (but I like the new sound effect); I love Thunder Reign, I dream about my Izanagi having it.

Magatama spells use the tier 4 animations (Ragnarok, Niflheim, Thunder Reign, Panta Rhei), so that makes sense.

Havn't seen a playthrough of Raidou games, can't judge.
Original Devil Summoner and Soul Hackers is also pretty meh.

If you want my ranking of Megidolaon goodness (animation wise)

Devil Survivor 2 > Devil Survivor/SMT Strange Journey/SMT IV > Persona 2:EP > Persona 3 and Persona 4 > Nocturne and Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2 > Soul Hackers and Devil Summoner >>>>>>>>>>>>>Persona 1

They didn't bother trying with the 3D animation, they knew persona fans only care about the 2D portraits and anime look.
