Critic Reviews for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse
A notable improvement on the original, although most of the changes are still just doodling in the margins – as the series waits for a more substantial overhaul.
One of the best pure RPGs available for the 3DS. Any fan of turn-based battles and creating the ultimate combination of evolutions will have a blast
This all-new adventure in the Shin Megami Tensei IV universe ranks among the best games for the 3DS.
Shin Megami Tensei 4: Apocalypse is a familiar, yet enjoyable journey
Though more of an expansion than a standalone release in spirit, Apocalypse's narrative superfluity is made up for by the considerable refinements it contains over its direct predecessor. Whether or not you'll enjoy its plot and its emphasis on partner characters comes down to personal taste, but on the whole it's an engrossing and addictive role-playing experience... even if it can feel a little familiar at times.
Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse is the perfect nightcap game for summer’s end. A perfect portable adventure that should satiate the appetites of fans that also serves as a solid entry point for those unfamiliar. Demons, dungeons and damnation await those who wish to take on the mantle of Godslayer. If that sounds like a sales pitch, it’s because I finally found a Shin Megami game that does not require a broken controller.
Atlus has been going strong for over 30 years and they have no sign of stopping. This would have been a cash-in almost anywhere else, but here, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse was shown the level of love and care most would give aggressively marketed new IPs. It's still no Nocturne, but it'll do.
God is a Geek
This is the pinnacle of the franchise in almost every way and a worthy successor to Shin Megami Tensei with fantastic combat, exploration, and story.
