Nintendo DS RPG of the Year - Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey
Unlike the Persona games and several others, the Shin Megami Tensei title wasn't simply tacked on by Atlus USA - Strange Journey is, in fact a true mainline series title, and boy can you ever tell. In a departure from a teenaged cast to an adult one, and a rare change in setting from Tokyo to Antarctica, Strange Journey takes a cue from Etrian Odyssey and employs first-person dungeons. But the rest of it bears true SMT traits: the challenging difficulty, heavy atmosphere, demon recruitment and the way the music fits the game's setting perfectly. As always, the DS boasts enough selection which contains something for everyone, but this time the grim MegaTen entry couldn't be beaten.
