‘Soul Hackers 2’ Is a Bland and Boring Shin Megami Tensei Game

Shin Megami Tensei: Soul Hackers 2 does not feel like a Shin Megami Tensei game. This could be a compliment, but it isn’t. It could mean that Soul Hackers 2 breaks new ground and drives the series forward, but it doesn’t. It could mean that Soul Hackers 2 is a brave and experimental, but misguided take on one of my favorite series, but it isn’t. It is just a mediocre, turn-based RPG with recognizable demons and a competent fusion system. I wish it was anything more.

This is not the headline I wanted to see when I woke up. :neutral_face:
