What's with SMT-IV?

#1VannofThursdayPosted 4/2/2013 3:10:05 PM
My very first SMT game was persona 3...
I was excited with SMTIV coz I thought it was almost the same with the Persona Series until I researched about it and became disappointed.
The game fells like leaning toward the classic SMT players becoz
-battles are on 1st person view unlike the P3/P4 which is in 3rd person.
-the devils are in 2d Sprites,not on 3D.it will feel like im figthing paper dolls becoz they are not moving just pictures standing taking damage.
For old time SMT players can you explain why this is a must buy game?
Im not really into 1st person battle in RPG and 2d Sprites especially the handheld can produce decent 3D graphics.

This game isn't for you. It's a Shin Megami Tensei game.

Persona 3 and 4 aren't Shin Megami Tensei games.

Aren't they literally not SMT games in Japan? Something about Atlus only adding the title in the west due to it being better known.

That's true. Atlus USA used SMT as a brand-thing, when in Japan it's just a "known" thing.

To be honest it's your fault for assuming that SMT games would play like something that isn't a SMT game.

It's the other way around, persona is a spinoff of SMT.
