What’s that? Another tragedy has befallen Japan and demons are at the center of it all? Hmm, must be another Shin Megami Tensei game. Devil Survivor 2 is the follow-up to the RPG/strategy hybrid Devil Survivor (which saw a recent remake on the 3DS), and it has you once again controlling a group of young heroes as they unravel the mysteries surrounding the most recent trip Earth has taken to its ultimate destruction. I know it’s terrible that the world is in shambles, but if mass destruction is this much fun, count me in, baby!
First things first: anyone get the Persona 3 reference in the intro paragraph? If not, let this be a refresher.
Devil Survivor 2 does what so many other sequels cannot: be just as good as the stellar original. The SMT games are definitely for a niche audience, but for that audience they are simply great RPGs. I’m actually still playing this one… it’s just that good!
