Shin Megami Tensei IV
This was my first Shin Megami Tensei game. I didn't know anything about this franchise until I got this game. This game is very fun and now I'm totally into playing more SMT games. This game is fairly difficult and challenging.(well part of it was because I was new) The graphics are amazing. The characters are amazing. The story is amazing. Yea, so this game is simply amazing!

Great RPG, keep you engage for hours
Great game, I love atlus and the Persona series which made purchasing SMT a no brainer. This is by far one of the best games for the console up there with the top games like fire emblem!!
Why Have I Never Heard of This!?!?!
Okay so I bought this game for the 30$ promotion (Me owning Fire Emblem Awakening already), I got a new copy for 20$ so I thought the deal was a-okay! I got the 30$ and left this game to collect dust because I had no interest in the game I just wanted the money. But one day I said to myself "I should test the game" that was the best decision in my life. This game is truly amazing game! It's so addicting and I haven't been able to put this game down! Get this game, get this game, get this game, get this game, get this game, all I can say.
Definitely love this game
When I first started this game up I wasn't expecting what's going on at first since this is my first time ever playing a Shin Megami Tensei game but after I kept going fighting demons/recruiting demons and completing quests I got very interested in the story-line. This game is by far the most played game from me and my small DS and 3DS collection and gonna keep enjoying it. :)
Shin Megami Tensei = Best franchise ever!
This would have to be my most anticipated game of 2013, I had dreams about playing this game before it came out but then waking up and being mad that it wasn't real.
First of all, the gameplay. The gameplay uses a press-turn system where you can gain more turns by striking an enemy's weak point or scoring a critical hit. If you have a demon that you don't need to attack for a turn, you can pass that turn to your next demon without losing the turn, however you can't pass extra turns. Sometimes you or your demons will "smirk" making their next attack much more powerful, but be careful, it can be a nightmare when an enemy (especially a boss) does that to you. The dungeon crawling in this game is great, and the out of battle graphics are superb for the 3DS. This game also uses the wonderful demon fusion that previous MegaTen games use, however, there is no triple fusion (except with special fusion).
Like most non-persona MegaTen games, this game's plot involves the forces of God and Lucifer going head-to-head, fighting over whether the world should be filled with chaos and ruled by the strong, or a lawful world of complete peace and order with limited freedom. This is all up to the player to decide, there is no "Good" or "Evil", you take the path that is best for you.
If you want a fast paced RPG with an epic plot and a insanely addicting gameplay, buy this game. Also you should check out other MegaTen games, they're all awesomse.
The Wait is Over
It has been forever since the release of a main line Shin Megami game following Nocturne but the wait is finally over. As a long time fan I'm happy to report that this game has met my expectations. Basically it is very similar to the recently released Soul Hackers and liked that, you are bound to enjoy this game. The story follows a teenage boy who is chosen as a Samurai and quickly finds himself fighting his way through dungeons, taming demons, and eventually forging a path in his own world. The majority of the time you'll be exploring diverse and impressive looking dungeons from a third person perspective (which is different from the first person soul hackers). The exploration is excellent and so are the battles and customization/menu system. It is turn based combat where you and demons will tackle other piles of demons, making it very similar to past entries. You will also spend time interacting with all sorts of characters. From your fellow samurai, to the demons that you forge fighting contracts with, your choices will impact the story. Though at times mild, you get a say in some things so that makes it all the more compelling. The soundtrack and voices are also stellar which is not new for the Shin Megami series but should still be commended. I can really only come up with 2 things I think would make this game much better. First, though unique, the story was not as strong as it has been in past entries. This could just be me talking, but I did not find myself connecting with characters like in Nocturne and Soul Hackers so I think those things could have been done better. Also, while dungeons and many character models are solid. The demons and battle system has not seen much improvement from the time of Soul Hackers. I expected to see some ferocious animated demon's to do battle with, but I was met with 2-D models in dull backgrounds. While these things are by no means turn offs to me I can see them bugging other people as the 3DS is fully capable of a better system. This is a fantastic addition to the Shin Megami Franchise, and I would recommend it to any RPG, Dungeon Crawler, of Shin Megami fan.
Perfect & addicting. Total of about 10 hours in & I haven't even really scratched the surface of the completion of the game. Must buy for fans of the series. I also got the collectors box - it's so pretty to look at.
Shin Megami Tensei iv
its gonna be cool im gettin it tday!!!! my friends tell me about it all the time it has veyy cool graphics
Another great addition!
I've always been a huge SMT fan, but this game has been great. My only complaint is that the sound quality isn't the greatest. Even with the volume turned all the way up in options and on the 3DS, it's hard to enjoy all the wonderful voice acting without headphones. However, the setting and plot were a refreshing take on their ideas about demons. It is easy to die early on though, but it's worth it to get back up and continue playing. If you've liked any of their previous games, this is definitely something to check out!
