The Gamers' Temple: " As with most Atlus RPGs, EO4 can be needlessly complicated at some times and way too difficult at others. It can confuse all manner of gamers with the constant introduction of new systems to worry about and rules that only make sense after some serious time is put in. But (you knew there was a but, right?) if you are into this type of game, or simply wish to try it out without the worry of an oppressively high difficulty level, then EO4 is for you. The game's appeal to less seasoned players could facilitate the growth of the hardcore RPG fanbase, and Etrian Odyssey 4 is the perfect jumping off point. Good luck, and always remember - if a monster looks too strong for you, it probably is. Run and live to fight another day."
