Shin Megami Tensei IV Review Log: Combat - GameRevolution

GR: "I've been hopelessly entrenched in SMT IV's extensively modern combat system. Combat in SMT IV gives you control over your own powers and abilities, but also those of up to three demon companions, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. You build your team up by conversing with demons and convincing them to join your side, but I'll have more on that in a separate post. Bottom line, choosing your moves smartly can make you a dominant demon wielder and give you an incredible feeling of success."

It looks kind of awesome and kind of ehh. I wish the battle view wasn't First Person. It never looks as good like that IMO. I prefer a side view or angled top down or a ton of other views but first person for some reason doesn't immerse me into the game it actually takes me out of it.

Probably just me. I'm also not into dark stuff or demons or anything so that doesn't appeal to me, but the quality of the game is there. You can see it without having to like it.

How are the mainline SMT games different from Persona?

They don't have the "real-world" vs "shadow-world" thing going on.

The difference?

Persona is more "save the world...with the power of friendship! Y-you wanna d-date ME, senpai?!?"

SMT is more "demons have infected your body and now it's up to you to either destroy the human race to pave the way for God's Kingdom or partner up with Lucifer to fight against Heaven"

Uh WHATTTTTTT ! Who is the good side ? I wanna fight for that side.

Or go neutral and kill everyone.

@ TongkatAll

That's kinda the point. The main SMT games tend to blur the lines between who is "good" and "evil".

@ chadboban

Yep, exactly. ;)

I misread that as log combat, which would be awesome

You can beat people with logs in Fire Emblem: Awakening. Maybe that's the cross over?
