Game

Shin Megami Tensei IV returns to the roots and tells a very similar story to that of the original SMT… which is kind of underwhelming after Nocturne, but then it also retains the characteristic dark atmosphere and the awesome hardcore game-play that just never grows old.

Positive:
Negative:
Beautiful artwork
Outdated visuals
Cool soundtrack
Doesn’t offer much in terms of story that prequels didn’t already
Dark, creepy atmosphere
The game-play is pretty much the same as the prequels
Thought-provoking on human society
Low-effort side-quests artificially extend the play time
Fantastic, hardcore turn-based combat
Challenging difficulty
