I don't have enough money for all these great games. Nor do I want to update my console and lose future homebrew capabilities by trying to run the games...

I'd recommend removing Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Girl and replacing it with Etrian Odyssey IV. It's a lot better.

Undoubtedly. I'll be frank, if you remove the fully orchestrated music (which Untold also has), the HD character art (which Untold also has), and the 3D modeling for monsters (which Untold also has), I feel like Etrain Odyssey IV is the weakest in the series. The "exploration" aspect felt weak, and it made the dungeons seem small.

That being said, I feel like Untold is easily the best. I've always liked the feel of the first one the most, and not only can I do that in HD, but I could instead do a story mode. The story mode, by the way, is bloody fantastic.

Although bluexy, don't take my word as true. Some people, like Heartlesswithaheart, think that IV is better, and they could be just as correct, if not more, than I was.

Part of the reason why I like IV more is because of the shorter dungeons, since there are other, smaller areas to make up for that. I tend to get sick of an area if I stay in it too long (like long dungeons) and enjoyed going through the smaller areas for a change of pace. I also loved loved loved how the dungeons were disconnected. It makes the area feel a lot bigger. The fact that you get around by a floating basket was also great, since I loved the ship part of III and was hoping for it to be expanded on in IV, which it was.

I also found the classes more enjoyable, with the exception of the ungodly broken Hexer only being in Millennium Girl. Though Stoning Curse is completely broken (it rarely ever misses a 9 skill points, despite being a low-cost instant death spell) so maybe that's for the better, since IV was already extremely easy. I also found IV's story to be better, though I'm not sure how much of that is due to being amazed at the fact that there was a story to begin with, alongside the fact that I already went through the original Etrian Odyssey.

That said, Millennium Girl is a very good game and I recommend everyone that likes JRPGs buys it, or at least tries the demo. I just prefer IV.

I knew it was only a matter of time for slash to come in and scrutinize Etrain Odyssey.

I'm happy to say that I own most of these titles already. It's been a pretty fantastic year for the 3DS with so many quality titles. Can't believe Fire Emblem came out at the start of the year, it feels much longer.

I'm not a fan of dungeon crawlers, so Etrian Odyssey did nothing for me. Also, remove Mario Party Island Tour. It's definitely one of the worst 3DS games IMO.

Great thread regardless.
