Strategy RPG of the Year: Handheld - Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor
Although the strategy RPG genre is not new to Shin Megami Tensei (note the Majin Tensei subseries in Japan), Devil Survivor marks the first time gamers outside of Japan got to play a tactical Shin Megami Tensei game. Devil Survivor features an involved darkly twisted storyline with multiple endings and sympathetic characters, a postmodern setting not normally found in this high fantasy driven genre, a riff-tastic guitar driven soundtrack, stylish visual design, and challenging gameplay where players must utilize genuine strategy or face certain consequences in social, strategy planning, and battling contexts. Basically, it contains everything that makes a Shin Megami Tensei game great in a handheld strategy RPG package. By offering its own unique flavor to the genre and providing one of the most fulfilling experiences we have seen in any RPG this year, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor handily wins this award.
