Excerpt: Imagine: your hometown is in ruins and everything you know and love is blown away. You stand amidst piles of rubble that used to be your neighborhood. You can hear the voices of looters in the distance, but desperate thieves are the least of your worries.
Excerpt: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 has an all new plot and characters, which lets players dive right in even if they haven’t played Devil Survivor . But those who have won’t find much original in Devil Survivor 2.
Summary: What would people do if they could see others' deaths before they come to pass? As devastation and ruin begin to spread, the player will have to use a mysterious website with the power to predict casualties in order to save lives, save themselves, and ultimately, save the city.
Summary: Devil Survivor is a role-playing game at heart, with generous sprinklings of tactics, monster-raising, and Japanophile enthusiasm. The sojourn through Tokyo's youth culture hotspots is fun if you're in on the references, but it's the well-paced and often difficult battles that win my praise.
