I’ve decided to get Bravely Second
I will eventually get SMT IV. It wouldn’t make too much sense buying both at once since both games are 40+ hour games. Thanks everyone! I’ll post impressions and the like. I especially wanna try out the Augmented Reality video from Bravely Second.
Can’t decide which game to choose.
Shin Megami Tensei IV (Not apocalypse)
Both are $20 but I can only get one.
Bravely second is $20 temporarily from Nintendo’s official eBay while SMT IV is 19.99 on their eShop.
Here’s some bits about each game
Bravely Second is a fantasy rpg with a ton of classes. It’s length is about 40+ hours and it’s turn based Roger combat is changed by choosing to deault (defend) or attack each turn. When you default you save up brave and the more brave you have the more actions you can take during your turn. So default a bunch with a healer and then brave when everyone is nearly dead and heal everyone to full hp or use it on a dps character and do massive damage by attacking a bunch (in one turn). The story is bad and the voice acting is irritating to most reviewers. The art style is beautiful and fully takes advantage of the 3D technology.
SMT IV Is a much more adult oriented than Bravely Second and has as much if not more total game time. You can recruit demons you meet to join you. I think the main gameplay thing here is that if you attack an opponent with their weakness then the attacker gets a smirk, which I believe is a guaranteed crit and an extra turn. Smirk doesn’t happen all the time but the enemy can smirk also. The story is good and gruesome and the voice overs are amazing. The game looks like it’s from the PS1 era which isn’t bad but… Yeah.
In terms of difficulty I think both are on par I think.
It’s mainly a choice of gameplay with SMT IV winning in story.
