SMT returns with Shin Megami Tensei V, in another world of ruins in need of solitary.
First off, this game is beautiful. Despite the switch's hardware, landscapes are filled with dreary and bright atmospheres, with demons roaming these forgotten lands. The music is great too, and is more rhythmic than previous entries.
The story is what falls short for me. It feels so basic, and character motivations can come out of nowhere. I remember so much about this game, but the story just didn't add up to anything.
Combat in this game is so good. The essence system allows for much more stat management, allowing you to create some real strong demons. It's interesting to see the buff/debuff system change, but I don't dislike it.
SMT V is a very atmospheric game, but falls short at the plot. If you're a fan of the series, you'll have a good time with this one.

god, the things i would do to that nahobussy

This game is a fucking beauty, and the gameplay is incredibly solid. I loved playing this game, after trying other Megatens and feeling a barrier, this one snapped me out of it and got me to really appreciate the series.
Yes, the story and characters are incredibly whack. Won't deny that one. However, I was able to set that aside and just enjoy the journey as it is.

Best gameplay in the franchise, never had as much fun with an SMT game as much as this one, Story+Characters are really,really,really bad tho.

A certain eerieness that even a cold shower can't wash off. Not that you would want to anyway.

La historia es un bodrio con sus personajes estoicos, pero el gameplay es muy adictivo y lo disfrute más que todos los Persona que he jugado; la exploración y el combate son menos monótonos, aquí no todo se resuelve con un "all-out attack". Hubiera jugado el NG+ para matar al Demi-fiend, pero me dio pereza volver a frustrarme con el primer calabozo y estoy satisfecho porque mate a Shiva (lo malo es que el grindeo necesario para pelear con Shiva hace que los jefes finales sean un chiste).
