A Great Sequel,
This review is from: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
as someone who played and enjoyed the first devil survivor, I can say that I am 100% happy with the second, it's truly one of the last good DS rpg's and certainly one of the last good DS games, Thnx Atlus!
1.Fantastic and colorful story, even though the first's plot was fun, I thought this was better by a mile.
2.Brighter settings, in contrast to the first's dark and red settings.
4.Tons of collectible demons.
5.Great characters, whom I enjoyed more than the first's characters.
6.No connection to the first, so new comers don't need catching up, and players of the first get a whole new experience.
7.More challenging bosses.
8.Smart and difficult gameplay that really makes you think.
9.More options in terms of demons customization and skills.
10.Less of those annoying rescue missions from the first.
11.Overall satisfying experience and an excellent Strategy/Tactical/RPG addition to any DS catalogue.
1.Could get tedious after half-way.
2.Extreme difficulty could turn off some.
3.Fate system is somewhat unnecessary and not interesting.
I haven't played any Shin Megami Tensei game other than the Devil Survivor series, as I thought it stood out the most, anywho I very much recommend this game to anyone!
