Summary: I am very happy with the concept and presentation of P4 Arena. While not a huge fan of fighting games, I was more than willing to purchase this one for the sole fact that it belongs in the Persona Universe. On that front, I was not disappointed. Though it takes some getting used to (and a fair amount of dying on my part), I think they did a great job with this game. On that note, I think I would have preferred to play this on the PS3.
One of the best fighting games out there if you love fast ones ...
22 July 2014
Summary: One of the best fighting games out there if you love fast ones that are heavily skill based. No button masher will ever beat a seasoned veteran. The combat is very smooth and combos connect together with ease unlike some other popular games (i.e. Mortal Kombat or street fighter franchises). And less cheap, as it takes an extremely good player to take most of your health bar away with one combo.
Summary: It should be clear that this is not a traditional persona game however, it is very lovable. Aside from the fact that the story seems to drag it does have parts that give the story its charm. The fighting is very smooth and the controls are very responsive. If you are new to the fighting game genre then I would recommend this game as well as fans of the Persona series.
Summary: I have never played a Persona game before. To be honest, I never even heard of persona until the announcement trailer for Persona 5 went live. But, the people who I did know that played Persona, loved it. I first discovered this game while watching Two Best Friends Play (aka, The Sw1tcher on Youtube). I had been pretty bummed out by the lack of diverse next-gen games, and I've been wanting to play a good fighter game for a while. But what was there to play?
Summary: I don't know anything about the Persona series, (only that Pat from Two Best Friends Play on Youtube is obsessed with it) but it is still a fun fighting game. I was recommended it as a good way to start getting into fighting games.
Summary: Great game, I love the new character I love the characters that came back from P3 but the game did not have a real ending. I know this is an Arc Systems game mostly but I expect Persona games to have endings not sequel hooks. I played it for the story and not the gameplay so I can't really comment on the combat, but it was a really stupid move to not have a retry button after you lose a fight.
