While receiving positive reception from Gamers and critics alike, the original Devil Survivor 2 for the Nintendo DS alienated some with it's high level of difficulty and lack of innovation in the tactical RPG genre. With Devil Survivor 2: Break Record, Atlus has enhanced the title, with extra features including voice acting for most if not all dialogue, a new female character,and an extra scenario which can be considered as a standalone RPG in itself!
Set within astory of a group of Japanese high school students who enter a pact whichenablethem to summon demons, common to the Shin Megami Series, this group mustfight mysterious creatures and prevent the destruction ofJapan.
Gameplay revolves around a 3v3 battle phase, and battle is presented asfirst person traditional turn based; players will be controlling one character and 2 summoned demons. Just like Persona, the "Extra Turn" mechanic is a huge factor in success, as being able to chain up attacks by exploiting the weaknesses of enemies becomes a huge strategy. As well, players can steal enemies skills.
Outside of battle,the storyunfolds differently depending on the player's actions and interactions with other characters throughout the game as they explore the country, with the result being multiple branching endings. Your interactions with the other demon users will create closebonds with themallowing you to befriend characters as well asexperience conflict between them;this is called the "Fate System."
With the new content, is the game is split into two scenarios, both accessible from the beginning. The first one is the "Septentrione Arc" which us the scenario from the original title; the "Triangulum Arc" continues immediately and cumulates the experience with brand new cut scenes and even characters!
As well, for Devil Survivor2 aficionados,Break Record comes in two difficulties thatplayers can select between:the casual "Gospel"difficulty or the standard "Apocalypse"difficulty.

Between its multiple interweaving systems, I expected something to get lost in Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker. But that didn't happen. Against all odds, these competing mechanics come together and form something that feels complete — a game where a player-driven story supports a brain-taxing strategic component supporting tense, classic JRPG battles. That these systems can coexist at all is a surprise; that they can feel right together is a feat worth celebrating.
version mejorada y con voces del juego de ds recomendado
Fun, engaging content
The game is pretty good by itself and it is nice improvement over previous game.
But the problem with this updated edition is that updates are relatively not so significant comparing to original game.
The additional story is kinda rushed a bit, but still good.
Overall the game is must have for anyone who haven't has opportunity to play original DS game
Decent Story in this sequel
