Great game, a bit better than part three even.
2 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

Yes, I was not expecting to enjoy this game more than part three, I was more expecting maybe enjoying this one about the same. However, I liked this one a bit more than Persona 3. One of the biggest improvements is a better story overall. I liked some aspects of Persona 3's story a little more, but this one has a murder mystery that I absolutely loved. As your character comes to town a body is found hanging from a telephone pole. Your character befriends some people and you and your friends must try to unravel the case and ultimately find out who was responsible for the killings. In this incarnation of Persona you and your friends travel to a television world to try and find those who for some reason end up hurled in this realm, if they are not rescued in a certain number of days when the fog returns to town that person will die and the game will be over. Thankfully, I had the strategy guide otherwise I am sure I would have been cussing up a storm at certain aspects of the game as there are a couple of apparent endings to the game that if you do not do right you will not get to the true ending of the game. The fighting is much like it is in Persona 3, however, you now have the option of controlling every character and quite frankly this makes the game a bit easier as now you do not have to worry about your characters doing stupid things that will screw you up royally during a fight. You can also explore the television world as much as needed on any give day which helps to as now you can get that out of the way and work on your social links which remains virtually the same as part three. However, once again I am very glad to have had the strategy guide as it was much easier leveling up your social links this time too as I had nearly all of them maxed out by the last boss instead of only the seven or eight I had maxed out in part three. So for a fun game that has mystery, horror and some comedy this game packs all those features into one quite nicely. For an added bonus you also get to go to the town from Persona 3 for a field trip and you get to see a couple of familiar characters as well during this trip. You also get to go to the club and proceed to watch a couple of your characters act a little crazy, and the characters are once again very colorful and likable.
