Etrian Odyssey IV Review | DarkStation

DarkStation: "There were times when I felt like I was enjoying the game nearly in spite of itself, but nevertheless, I enjoyed Etrian Odyssey IV enough to at least see its appeal past its deluge of menus. The approximation of dangerous, fantastical exploration is emulated here with a lot of thoughtful touches that managed to interest me in ways I was skeptical were possible before beginning. If you’re new to the series, this is probably the best possible place to start. The presentational upgrades, while still squished under some heavy tedium, make getting in a little friendlier than before. Unless you’re a chronic stat-cruncher and menu enthusiast, though, I can’t imagine that this incremental and grind-heavy sequel will resonate with you." (3DS, Etrian Odyssey IV) 3/5
