Game Guys review - Shin Megami Tensei IV

Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei series, including its spinoffs such as Persona and Devil Summoner, have gained quite the reputation for being well involved. The franchise's latest entry, 3DS game Shin Megami Tensei IV, is no different. But those who tough it out will find the game offers a rather satisfying play experience rarely found on the platform. (3DS, Shin Megami Tensei 4) 78/100

Damn this is one of if not my fav handheld rpg ever and quite possibly fav jrpg (up there with Xenoblade, Lost Odyssey, FFX, and i like it far more than P4 Golden even). Its not that past SMT games weren't good because they were but this just has that extra polish and shine similar to Fire Emblem Awakening. Both FEA and SMT4 were great series before but the newest games made them accessible, more visually appealing, quicker, streamlined, better production values, deeper story and characters all while keeping the soul and challenge intact. Once you hit the main city (vague for spoiler reasons) it gets so damn good. The game opens up and throws a massive world that's so dark, twisted, and yet fun to explore. And the music is flipping phenomenal!
