Summary: Persona 4 definitely deserves the reputation it gets as one of the top RPGs on the PS2. If you are an anime fan this game is especially up your ally as a large component of the game is a social simulation/management that plays just like a dramatic anime series. Combat system is fun, and the ability to fuse different personas to create new ones adds depth.
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: Well here we go again...Persona 4 is basically a polished up retread of Persona 3. If you enjoyed that game and want more of the same, here it is...if you want something new, well, ummm, this is not the game for you. Persona 4 sees a transfer student (you) join his class at the local high school. Here he makes new friends and accidently discovers a hidden world where monsters roam...which of course has to be explored!
Summary: I Loved the game and the sound track, but in the end it came a very close 2nd to Persona 3. The story line was great but I wish they had done away with the whole silent protaginist thing. I mean he's the hero of the story, make him say something!!! Also when your doing the LINKS its frustrating as hell since you have to save just before in case they don't go up at all and you end up wasting your day. Also, I wish you could get more diverse with the romance in the game.
I love this game. Its almost on par with Final Fantasy X or VII(PS2).

Summary: Can't wait to play Street Fighter 4 and Fallout 3 but for now...Persona 4. So before I start my review. I've been playing RPGs since I was 5, I'm currently in my mid 20s. Right off the bat if you're a hardcore RPG fan then you will love this game. If you're into fighting and FPS this probably is not the game for you unless you want to take a break from another genre.
Summary: If you played Persona 3 FES then you will know what to expect, but if not then this rpg here spices up the genre. This game takes place in a modern Japanese setting and each person can summon a spirit (Persona) that casts magic for the user. The fights are turned based but with it's own style. You basically live out a year (Game time) and interact with your other characters; dating, hanging out, etc. Then at night you venture into a tv world and fight evil shadows.
Great plot and solid gameplay but not for the easily bored

Summary: Persona 4 is a great game. The graphics are great for a PS2 game and the voice acting is ok. The game starts off slow with a lot of video and not many choices for the 1st couple of hours. However, the opening sets up the plot for the game, and the plot the where the game shines brightest. The low point of P4 comes from the repetitive gameplay once you get into the middle of the game and have to start leveling your fighting skills.
