One of the most unique and engaging role playing games of all time!!!
23 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

This game took me 97 hours and 43 minutes to win on my first play through. Normally, I would not ever want to touch the game again seeing as how it lasted that long, but I can see myself playing this one again. The story, is very intriguing. A boy goes to a new town to start at a new school. He becomes involved with an organization that is involved in the elimination of a creature known as shadows. These creatures only appear during the dark hour. What is this you ask? A forgotten time that occurs during twelve o'clock and is unknown to most. The exceptions, poor souls who are unlucky enough to be prey for the shadows and our heroes who have the ability to wield an ability known as persona's. Yes, sounds complicated, and it is. Your school also transforms during this time and is called the tarturas and this is where you do the majority of the fighting at. The fighting is turned based with a twist, you really only control the main character and this will make some fights more difficult than necessary. However, I won the game with the battle level at normal rather than easy and while there was some tough spots I got through most of the game rather smoothly. During the day you proceed with normal school activities and this is important as the more friends and stuff you have the more powerful persona's you can make through fusing. Yes, it is somewhat complicated to explain. You will notice that the main character's persona looks like the many enemies and such that you have encountered in other games made by this company like Digital Devil Saga and the very hard to find Nocturne. This one though is my favorite of the bunch though they are all rather good...though I am not crazy about Devil Summoner. So when you play this game be prepared for it to take a while, as the last boss fight alone took me over an hour to beat. However, be prepared for a lot of fun too.
