Summary: When I was playing through this game back in 2009,I thought to myself '' I haven't played a game this addictive in a long time''. ----------------- Story ---------------- The story is about a character(who you'll name but I'll refer to as senpai) moves to a small country town in Japan.He stays with his uncle(who is a detective)and his little cousin.Murders start happening in the town that are more chilling than usual(I don't want to give away why,but you'll see what I...
Summary: Persona 4 Persona is a psychological term coined by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. He described it as, "a kind of mask, designed on the one hand to make a definite impression upon others, and on the other to conceal the true nature of the individual". This series uses the above quote as a basis for a great theme to run on. While the anime, giant teddy bear, magic, and J-Pop might make it look like a game made for kids Persona 4 is everything but.
Summary: Persona 4 is one of those obscure gems that never ceases to amaze. The trying experience of the first few hours is quickly forgotten when you get into the meat of the game. The combat is a seamless and fun take on the classic JRPG formula. The teen sim may seem offputting at first, but when you start gaining Social Links, you'll quickly become addicted. But the part that is the shining glory of this game is the story.
Dark, Long, and One of the Best RPGs I've Played In a While

Summary: Possible spoiler alert!! With Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4, Atlus continues their tradition of dark and lengthy JRPGs. This means as a JRPG this is of those you are either going to love unconditionally or absolutely abhor. Persona 4 takes place about a year after the events of Persona 3. You start out Persona 4 as an unnamed high school junior sent to live with your uncle while your parents are out of the country for a year.
Summary: It has mysteries even the addicted can't solve. The true ending is a long way off. The game has a second play through. Your past Personas are available and your status (Diligence, Courage, Expression, Intelligence and Understanding) is still the same. Have fun playing it.
Pros: Engaging story, Loads of content, Epic boss fights, Innovative concepts, Just plain fun
Summary: I played a lot of games in my videogamer career. GTAs,ZELDAs,RESIDENT EVILs,FALLOUTs,BALDURs GATES,BULLY,and lots of ShOOTERS too...I have to recommend this game to everyone because, you understand, is really better, not for graphics or sound or something in particular, but for the interest of the player that keeps growing during the entire "hundred hours" narration..
