I've only played Etrian Odyssey 4 and Etrian Odyssey Untold, so I can't speak to the earlier games in the series. But both of those are very good (as long as you don't mind high difficulty and drawing your own map) and they both have demos on the Eshop, which are 100% transferable to the full game.
So give the demos a shot and see what you think of them.
