I was actually referring to the turn-based system itself, which is some awkward hybrid of SMT2 and Final Fantasy X. But now that you mention it, I'm not fond of collecting tarot cards either. =P

And the UI is a mess in the original PS1 release.

Like I said above, I actually think a better comparison would be Strange Journey. Much of the demon art in Strange Journey came from Soul Hackers, and the COMP system is very similar to the Demonica as Aeana noted above.
