Good, unique RPG

  • Summary: Strangely, the Persona creature card system is like a dark version of pokemon in that you collect tarot cards which have certain powers and you have to level up to gain more skills in those creature cards. It is quite fun. I would not let a child play this game. I think for a teenager it would be okay. There is some profanity,but it is not bad. I've seen some PG-13 movies with worse content than what is featured in this game.
  • Pros: It's a modern set rpg with many plot twists. Beautiful animated cut scenes. The interface and the character design on both the heros and enemies is sleek. The voice acting can be pretty amusing as well. The storyline is interesting and makes you want to play the game until the end.
  • Cons: Your character is restricted to what he can do in a day's time. So if you looking for a game which has hardly any limits, this isn't it. Then again, the game follows a calendar schedule. The battle levels can get tedious. The second game,The Answer, is very difficult. It basically takes out the fun stuff of "The Journey" and makes it into a dungeon crawler. You slay monsters, hope your party doesn't get slain before you save and repeat. And there is only one difficult...

SHOOT YOURSELF IN THE HEAD…TO FIGHT EVIL !!!

  • Summary: Don’t worry, this is not a horror game, this is a wonderfully weird Japanese turn based RPG with social simulation game elements, from the same people that made the Shin Megami Tensei RPGs. This is my first time in the Persona RPG series, that began in the PSOne, but only came the first time in Europe, in 2008 for the PS2, more than ten years after, with Persona 3 (the first one was remade for PSP in 2009).

Massive Game, Little Cost.

  • Summary: Personally, I had never heard of the Persona series, nor had I really played any JRPGs, until a few friends introduced me. What I found was an expansive, engaging and, yes, challenging game, which cruelly punishes you for simultaneously being a non-Japanese person and a non-Japanese high school student. However, once you get a hang of the dating simulation mechanics and find a good balance between social links and exploration: the game really comes into its own.

  • Summary: Such a good surprise. I have never finished the game because I lost it somewhere but the concept is simply great. Design, music, characters, setting, story, all is coming nicely together to give a new direction to RPG and gaming in general. I wish they would do one which is not with high schoolers but older hero.

  • Summary: I've never played a persona game before but if you've played final fantasy before, the game system is quite similar. The storyline is quite interesting and the gameplay from school life to fighting 'shadows' in tartarus is diverse enough to keep my attention. Pretty good game, I haven't finished it yet but so far so good. Also the game arrived very quickly. It came within 3 days of ordering, great service!

I wish school had been this fun for real, ok maybe no shadows though.

  • Summary: I missed Persona 3 when it first came out and I had kept hearing about it but was never willing to dish out the $100+ that it was being sold for. So when FES came out I preordered it and said for $30 what the heck I'll try it out. Well 4.5 months and 150 hours of game play later I can say I got my moneys worth and more. It's not the best game I've ever played but it's in my top 5. First, the game play is really good in some ways and not so good in others.
