Anyone take the plunge? These games are like Heisenberg crack to me. I'm really interested in the story mode. Also, I'm addicted to the map making in these games. Anyway, is there enough new content to stand up against ET IV or am I looking at the same game and monsters but with a different name.

I have it in hand. Have never played an EO game so this seemed like a good place to start. I'm a little unclear about story mode vs. classic mode. Does story mode have everything classic mode has plus cutscenes or does it have less fighting or something?

I will be downloading it when I get home later tonight.  I played Story Mode in the demo and got my characters up to level 10 (the limit of the demo) and the game  left me wanting more.  I think the addition of a story is a great thing for the series and am looking forward to playing it.

Story mode has a greater emphasis on story (obviously slywink), cutscenes, premade characters, an extra dungeon, and (I think) it contains more introductory/tutorial information.  However, you don't get to make your own characters and only five of the game's classes are present.  Classic mode has the same areas and enemies, but plays like a traditional dungeon crawler - little story, you make your own characters from more classes, etc.  If this is your first EO game, I'd start with story mode.  It seems it was designed specifically for people new to the series or genre.

Amendment: If this is your first EO game, you need to watch the FOE video.  It should help cover the bases to help make sure you're as prepared as possible when you enter the dungeons.

Played the intro dungeon and the first story mission. So, without story how did the original game play out? You just got quests with no story to tie them together?

There was a very light story, but yeah mostly you just accepted missions and tried to complete them. The draw wasn't the story, it has always been the classic dungeon crawling difficulty that Etrian games supply.

I have Etrian Odyssey one through four in my backlog, along with The Millennium Girl. Is it even worth playing the first few games anymore? On a couple other forums people are saying skip the first three games and just play the remake and Etrian Odyssey 4, as the number of improvements in later games is dramatic.

I thought part 3 was really good.

It definitely was.  That being said, these two 3DS ones are may favorite of the series and more so with Untold because it adds some story.
