A challenging, satisfying JRPG that fans will adore. While there are a few stumbles (such as the story and grinds), SMTV's customization, art, and brutal gameplay make this a must play for both JRPG and Shin Megami Tensei fans.

Critic Reviews for Shin Megami Tensei V
Shin Megami Tensei 5 brings back the things that fans love about the series. Its biggest sin is that it doesn’t do much to innovate. Fans that were expecting to see a brand new vision for SMT will be confused because this is essentially the same demon collecting dungeon crawler it has always been.
The seemingly endless possibilities of Shin Megami Tensei V directly fueled my desire to play it from the moment I got my copy. It’s overwhelming, but compartmentalized. The world is technically finite, but feels limitless. It’s just what a lot of people want out of an RPG, and the strong personality-driven throughput helps propel it past a lot of its competition.
