Diehard GameFAN: Shin Megami Tensei IV Review

DHGF: Shin Megami Tensei IV finally releases on the Nintendo 3DS after almost a decade since the last main entry arrived on the PlayStation 2. The plot is both dark and thematically interesting, equipped with multiple routes and endings to unlock. It’s also quite challenging, though an easier difficulty setting, an included strategy guide, and helpful tutorials help bridge newcomers rather nicely. The Press Turn system is as enjoyable as ever with the new “smirk” ability, and you will find yourself engulfed in demon fusion before you even realize what’s happening. A few things hold the experience back slightly, such as an unhelpful overworld map and demon recruitment that feels like it’s based too much around luck. Still, the quality of the core experience manages to eclipse any shortcomings, making Shin Megami Tensei IV a worthwhile addition to any RPG library. (3DS, Shin Megami Tensei 4) -
