☆★★★★ Chaos ending. Felt deeply bitter to me... :( It's the toughest start in MegaTen games I've ever experienced... O.O 2nd playthrough (have had the SMT itch for some time now). Aiming for completing the compendium--and getting another ending if I have the stamina. New demons: [Heqet] [Zhu Tun She] [Shiisaa] [Sandman] [Tam Lin*] [Suparna] [Hamsa] [Morax] [Apis] Save Kaso + Apis for Phoenix! (with Ice Resistance) Also, Morax for Baphomet soon.

Well, equipping Quick Focus will be mandatory for this boss, so I gotta make room for another charm. First impressions, the good: - Gorgeous and moody - I like the fact I can maneuver my sword in many ways--kinda (lightly) reminds me of ActRaiser 2 - The soul/energy system The bad: - It's hard to tell what's interactable from what isn't - The character is so light that it bounces around for hitting pretty much anything - Currency is heavily relied on and it's scarce--also, you lose i

Despite always drooling over the screenshots in mags at the time I never tried a game in the series. It looks (and specially sounds) fantastic. Equipment/levels really make a difference--feels rewarding, but encourages grinding all the same.

Ok, things I need for a sucessful run with this ship: ~6 crew; a GOOD weapon (hard to come by); ~3 shields; aug (preferably cloaking, HARD & $$$) Achievements: 13 / 51 (25%)

☆★★★★ Well, now it seems I kinda got the grips of it, but it's overwhelmingly arbitrary and disproportional--in a sense that the player is never rewarded for nothing: being cautious or reckless or enterpreneur will not necessarily mean anything.

Animation is a dream, sound design is awesome (despite the low quality of the samples) and feels like an overall improvement over the former iteration; mas it's more "classic" (or less experimental) with its basic systems--namely, the health meter and time limits for leaving the levels.

Tough battles, every mistake is punished--and even waiting is a mistake since there's a timer on top of everything. Also, new spells aren't worth ***. Achievements: 5 / 21 (24%)

yee haw, SMTIV!

I happened to get the neutral on the first try and I was satisfied it, so I never replayed it. All three endings would be too much SMT for me!
