Has Solid Gameplay, but not much else.On Gamestop's end, I recieved the game right when they said it would come in and it worked perfectly fine, no issues. Now let's talk about the game itself. First off, just as a disclaimer, I did not finish the game. The game is a dungeon-crawler rpg that has you build your own map as you travel areas one square space at a time. Pretty standard to RPG's it has it's own class system and you can buy weapons, armor,etc. At the very beginning of the game, before you do hardly anything else, you create your own party. You can choose between a wide variety of classes and, once you decide a person's class, choose what they look like out of four pre-rendered images or I guess you could call them "avatars". You also decide their name. Although some people might like this freedom of choice, to me it absolutely destroys any sense of immersion in the game. It's a constant reminder that these aren't real people and because of that I never got attached to them. While we're on the topic of immersion, there is hardly any plot. You mainly just "accept quests" from random people and do what they say. This game has good mechanics and enemies, but that's about it. Everything about Etrian Odyssey IV screams "THIS IS JUST A GAME." There is no immersion. I kept playing thinking that would change soon but it didn't. I finally quit feeling completely uninspired and burned out. When you hear people talk about how RPG's are boring and uninspired, this is one of the worst games you could possibly show them.

Old school RPG with plenty to doThis game will definitely challenge what you know of RPGs and grinding. Plenty of character options and skill customization but get used to the idea of dying.

A Bit RefreshingComing off of Heroes of Lagaard and The Drowned City I'd have to say the gameplay became a lot more forgiving. While it was a little less frustrating at times, some of the previous difficulty was severely missed. Though I do appreciate the casual mode to bring new players to the fanbase, I just wish normal mode was a little more difficult. The graphics completely trumps the previous titles, which goes without saying, and the dungeons oddly enough became somewhat soothing. The music and sounds was something else. Being a big lover of music I thought the scores were perfect, and it really enhanced the experience. Still getting a lot of play out of it, and even with the fact that I will soon be buying Untold, I still will be coming back to this title.

Highly RecomondedThis game is amazing. It it my favorite one of the series. Although the game don't intertwine with each other the story line of this one is creative, long, challenging, thoughtful, and overall great. The labyrinths in this game are a little bit harder then the previous games. This is a good game to start on too. They have an easy mode that goes into the game slow and helps you learn how to play the game. For the players with experience with other Etrian Odyssey games they have a normal setting that is really challenging. This is a great game to spend and put a lot of time into. I hope this review has helped you.
