Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker is part of the very long-running and distinctive Shin Megami Tensei video game series, all known for very complex, surreal, and sometimes overtly confusing story lines. This game fits that mold very well, with an intricate story; so long as players have the attention and focus to pay attention to all the minute details and frequent plot twists, they'll no doubt appreciate the masterful way such an intricate and imaginative story plays out.

But the gameplay itself remains somewhat flat. Though there are various puzzles and battle strategies for players to master, there's nothing inherently unique or truly captivating about the actual game mechanics, which is a disappointment considering how well crafted the overarching story is. But even with that subpar feature about Devil Survivor 2, anyone with the patience and focus to get through the entire game will come away completely satisfied.
