PlayStation 2 RPG of the Year - Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2- Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon
The battle for best 2009 Playstation 2 RPG was a battle between sequels; and thus the most improved sequel was Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2- Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon. Its predecessor, Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army, won major points for its atmosphere and sense of period but had a restrictive combat engine that made battling lackluster after a while. Not only did Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon tweak up the battle system to keep combat fresh, but it also brought back demon negotiations from old-school Megami Tensei games. Add to these a darker storyline with the same great sense of period, the addictive demon fusion and weapon upgrade systems, clever puzzles, loads of sidequests, and the unmistakable style that Shin Megami Tensei games exude, and we have a winner. Words do not do justice to a game that simply needs to be played to know how good it is.
