A standout title in the series, first to introduce the well-beloved Press Turn battle system. Although the narrative isn't as pronounced as its peers in the mainline series, it's still a fun and engaging experience, with some of the best dungeons within the mainline series. It's a little simplistic in comparison to what came later, but it still holds up today and is a great avenue for people wanting to see what the meat of the series holds.

this game isn't actually that hard smt fans just like to overexaggerate how hard the game is for some reason either way this is the same deal as persona the fourth entry is better

Que tremendo juegazo!
Realmente disfrute mucho de sus grandes mazmorras,sus divertidas boss fights a pesar de que no fueran del todo difíciles,su increíble ambientación,y su tremendo soundtrack,siendo estos elementos los cuales me dieron una gran experiencia,además de contar con una divertida jugabilidad,y si bien no es un título realmente difícil,si que pide que sepas dominar bien mecánicas como los buffs y debuffs,siendo bastante útiles a la hora de enfrentar jefes,y todo esto,logra dar una experiencia realmente divertida y que merece jugarse.
Realmente es una gran experiencia la cual no dudaría en recomendar y que merece mucho la pena,sobretodo con el True Demon ending,la forma definitva de sacarle provecho a este título.
Ya sea si eres fan de SMT,te gusta la ambientación post-apocalíptica o simplemente quieres disfrutar de un buen J-RPG,este título es imprescindible,bastante recomendable.

(i have only played true demon with raidou instead of dante so far)

the peak of the series in terms of how well its individual parts come together to form a cohesive game. easily my favorite ost and story and the characters are also great.

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne is a video game that debunks the bible in its entirety. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where the player must choose between different factions, each with their own version of the bible. The player soon discovers that the bible is a work of fiction and that the truth is much more complicated. The game's story is about a group of people who are trying to survive in a world where the laws of physics no longer apply. The game features many different enemies, each with their own version of the bible. The player must use their own knowledge of the bible to defeat them. The game is a very unique and original take on the post-apocalyptic genre. It is very well written and the game's story is very engaging. The game's graphics are also very good. Overall, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne is a very good game that debunks the bible in its entirety.
