Review: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2

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!

I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.
