Content Rating: Teen
Etrian Odyssey V chronicles the quest of a new adventurer as he or she attempts to reach the crown of the towering Yggdrasil Tree. For it is said that whoever braves the dangers of the dreaded Yggdrasil Labyrinth and reaches the summit will have their greatest wish fulfilled. Each culture has their own myth, some say great power will be granted, others believe the great mysteries will be solved. Some believe the ultimate techniques can be mastered there, and a number believe the lost treasures can be found at the top of the Yggdrasil Tree's boughs.

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth continues the proud tradition of the franchise with its stellar character customization and level designs as it poses a daunting challenge, well worth conquering- one tile at a time. Fun Tidbit – While classes like Mage and Shaman feel weak at the start, they really start to shine in mid to late game so stick with them and you’ll be rewarded with your patience!
Whether it’s your first foray into Yggdrasil or your fifth, playing Etrian Odyssey V is a true pleasure. Its addictive central gameplay loop combines engaging exploration, strategic combat and DIY cartography, all wrapped up in a charming presentation and a lush, organic aesthetic.
Classic almost to a fault, Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will satisfy series fans. But the grind-heavy nature isn’t likely to change the minds of those who’ve already decided the series wasn’t for them. However, the game has grown on me over the 30 plus hours I’ve sunk into it these past few weeks.
