Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 – Record Breaker review | EGM NOW

Throughout my life, I’ve had something of a complicated relationship with strategy-RPGs. In concept, the idea of an epic storyline told through a series of meaningful, challenging battles (instead of a flood of mindless random encounters) seems right up my alley. In practice, too many examples of the genre end up boring me with their overdeveloped narratives, bloated character rosters, and combat engines that can negate 20-plus minutes of effort after one tiny mistake on the part of the player. To get me into these games, I need something more—some hook, some quality I simply can’t ignore.

The story is too old to be commented.
