Nao vou dar nota nesse pq pretendo rejogar ainda até zerar, mas a ambientação, ost, personagens sao excelentes mas a gameplay tem alguns defeitos que me incomoda muito quando eu comparo aos outros da franquia

has the top 1 boss theme out of any video game and it's not close

vacation game as in i played it while on vacation with my dad back in the day
quite long but the story is engaging all throughout but also if u played a few of these types of games u just know exactly where its going

Shin Megami Tensei IV is one of the best games from the mainline series, along with being my personal favorite, and I hate it.
"The possible worlds we showed you... They were born of man's true nature. Freedom and order, destruction and sustenance. Man is a pitiful creature who cannot escape that cycle. If you see possibility in such people, then you are truly blind..."

Not my favorite Shin Megami Tensei game, but one of the best in the series. A game that aged like fine wine and was incredibly fun to play even compared to more recent titles. It is amazing how advanced the game is compared to Nocturne and how great the story was compared to Shin Megami Tensei V. I'd argue that besides Soul Hackers it has the best art direction regarding its characters and demons. Nocturne has the best world (and a better Lucifer), but SMTIV takes the cake in regard to everything else. It also has the best characters in mainline hands down, Walter, Johnathon, and Isabeau are such interesting characters and the way their alignments support their ideals yet contradict their upbringing is interesting. Overall, Shin Megami Tensei IV is an excellent Megaten game and a fantastic JRPG that everyone should get to when they can.
