  • Summary: Welcome to Tokyo. Mind the demons!
  • Pros: Plenty of content for the price; challenging, strategic gameplay; huge variety of demons to summon.
  • Cons: Boss fights are repetitive and borderline unfair; demon design is cool but doesn’t fit at all; ending kind of sputters out; fusion mechanics are poorly done.

  • Summary: It has been nine long years since we've enjoyed Atlus' role-playing masterwork, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturn e. Yep, it's been nine long years since we've seen a numbered title in Atlus' core franchise (though Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey was a really nice tie-over).

  • Conclusion: Is that a penis demon? I think it's a penis demon.
  • Pros: Blowing away a boss well above my level in a single turn with some well-chosen elemental attacks, timely smirks, and a lucky crit.
  • Cons: My previous try at that boss, where my ally's poor choice of elemental attack caused the boss to smirk and wipe my party with just two attacks.

  • Excerpt: Shin Megami Tensei IV is a game that demands your attention. It’s very easy to make a mistake during battle with your entire team dead as a result. You might get lost and run out of antidotes, unable to cure the poison sucking away your life.

Diehard GameFAN

  • Summary: 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.

Review: Become a demon-hunting Samurai in Shin Megami Tensei 4

GameZone
4 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Shin Megami Tensei IV is the first of the core series to make its way to a handheld. It's even more impressive that a new entry in the core series has finally surfaced, considering the last entry is almost 10 years old. Is the new generation ready for another hardcore demon-hunting game?

  • Summary: Atlus seems to take a sadistic pleasure in asking fans to wait for true sequels in the Shin Megami Tensei series. The gap between Shin Megami Tensei 2 to Shin Megami Tensei 3 was a full nine years, and skipped an entire console generation, going from SNES to PS2.
