Shin Megami Tensei V Review – The End of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)

Everybody has their bad days. One moment you’re walking home from school, and the next thing you know, the class jackass has dragged you and your friends into the Biblical apocalypse while trying to create the next hit viral video. And then you wind up sharing a body with a supernatural warrior, trying to survive among the demonic forces roaming a ruined Tokyo long enough to figure out what the hell is going on.

At least, that’s how things go in the world of Shin Megami Tensei V, the latest numbered incarnation in Atlus’s long-running RPG series where, once again, Tokyo has found itself at the epicenter of a global demonic apocalypse. Naturally, you’re the person who can change the fate of humans and demons alike. Will you fight with the forces of Heaven to spread holy Law across the land, embrace the might and freedom of the forces of Chaos, or walk a neutral path? No matter what choices you make, your journey won’t be an easy one–but it will be very rewarding.

You begin Shin Megami Tensei V as a simple student, but it’s not long before you’re standing amongst a ruined Tokyo, watching angels spiriting away your buddies and being beset upon by supernatural beings. A strange demon offers you his power for protection, and you fuse with him, becoming the Nahobino–a human/demon hybrid with the potential to wield godlike powers. The keyword being “potential,” since your life is now hell on earth, quite literally: Almost every single god or demon from humanity’s collective belief systems is now running amok in what was once a bustling metropolis. As a result, you’ll need to carefully pick your allies and call them to your aid–as well as manage your own abilities–in order to survive in vicious turn-based combat to become the almighty being you are meant to be.
