My advice is to try out the demo on the Nintendo eshop before you purchase this game if you are new to the series, because it's a large demo that lets you sample a good chunk of gameplay. some will like it, and some will not ,the map drawing and and the sometimes hard battles will turn some people off . For others, this is a highlight of the game. These types of games are pretty hardcore, But if you give it a try, and don't give up when your party gets wiped out by something like a angry bear, you will find a very rewarding and enjoyable game that will have you hooked for many many hours.
EO4 nowadays costs 10 euro on nintendo shop as digital download, if you don't mind not having a booklet nor game case nor plan on re-selling it. Simple advice: play the demo now and if you like it buy the full game now, it won't get any cheaper... buck/Hours ratio is 10/80+ hours = about 10 cents per hour!
The EO4 demo allows you to explore everything and get up to level 10, and is exactly like the full game *. The demo "locks" after 4 restarts (so simply put your 3ds to sleep and do not start anything else!). After that I deleted the demo and redownloaded it but it didn't start any more. My character progress was lost, and once I started the full game it showed a message saying no demo data found... So don't do that.
*) EO4 full game has the same story as the demo, and things with QR codes and other peripherals and has a casual mode (= somewhat easier than the normal EO1/2 difficulty) and a normal mode (which i haven't even tried).
Without spoiling, graphics are excellent, as always about half the quests are too vague to understand what you are supposed to do, and it looks a lot like EO3 wrt skill progression. From the start you have an area to explore by airship, which effects to the fact that there are 3 dungeons to your disposal, 2 of which have only 1 level so it is EO1 with cheap bonuses (the 2 that are in the full game but not in the demo, so you don't miss much). The mats you can gather by flying don't amount to much reward.
4 stars because it is a good game but not enough added to EO3 the drowned city. EO3 had more challenge and puzzles.
Final advice: buy eo4 from nintendo for 10 bucks as long as it is 10 euro, i wouldn't buy it for 30 bucks or more, play eo3 instead and finish it. Atlus pops out EO games faster than you can finish them anyway if you are a working class hero like me, so there will always be a better version out there, no need for hoarding.
As a final note, there is no need for ariadne threads if you play casual mode: if you die you simply return to the inn, and resting is cheaper than using ariadne at least in the lower levels.
First things first, this is a RPG for gamers looking for a challenge. While Etrian Odyssey 4 is considerably easier than the first 3 games, this is still a very difficult game. Your progress will be slow, frustrating at times, and you will frequently see the game over screen. Enemies (even standard enemies) can wipe your party and bosses will bring you to tears.
The gameplay loop consists of alternating between a home-base (where you can accept quests, buy gear, rest etc.), an overland map which you explore with an airship, and dungeons which you encounter on the overland map and which you explore, first-person, and map yourself using the touch screen on the 3DS. The overland map is a new addition, greatly expanding on a similar feature from Etrian Odyssey 3 and is both a wonderful new addition and a cause of great frustration.
The overland and dungeons feature a mixture of random battles and FOEs. An FOE is a highly powered enemy, usually several levels above your own, and incredibly difficult to take down. They can wipe your party in a couple of turns and make your life a misery. Fortunately you can see them and so take steps to avoid them. Unfortunately, they are so ubiquitous (especially compared to Etrian Odyssey 1 and 2) that you won't be able to avoid them all. You'll get cornered by multiple FOEs, wander into them by accident, and generally tear your hair out as a simple trek from point A to point B becomes a nightmare of accidentally wandering into the path of FOEs. In earlier games, when you defeated an FOE they would disappear from the game world for a few days, allowing you to progress unmolested. Not so here. They return on your next voyage, meaning there's never a moment of respite. Because there are so many FOEs, the game designers have had to reduce their strength. This means that they are no longer the terrifying threat they used to be, and are simply a pain in the backside.
In short, if you are a fan of old-school RPGs like Eye of the Beholder, or modern re imaginings like Legend of Grimrock, this comes highly recommended. Its a fantastic game, but far from perfect. If you are prepared to weather some frustration you'll enjoy 60+ hours of dungeoneering.
