GamerLimit: Persona 4 Review

"Persona 4 is not a game. It is an experience. It is the kind of experience that helps to define what it means to be a gamer–and what it means to be a game. In an age where developes are constantly pushing less and less, a game like Persona 4 is a rare gem. It is a classic: it stands high among such grand titles as Suikoden 2, Xenogears, and Final Fantasy VII. Though it lacks the dramatic tone of so many other games in the genre, Persona 4 manages to deliver an experience totally unique to the genre."

What do you guys think of the major complain about tension?

If it's so bad, shouldn't that warrant a lower score?

Yeah without that, he probably would have given it something higher. I would give it a 10, but I'm a Persona fanboy.

Danja3492d ago

it's a 10 in my book....

just beat the last boss....was a b!tch but im ready to start my second play through,.,XD

The "tension" thing sounds like a nitpick..

It's not like I think the game's perfect, but every RPG does this because the player needs some measure of time to prepare for the coming battles. Surely, the diverse activities you may engage in can starkly contrast with the urgency of the mission, but so does gaining a bunch of levels/finishing a bunch of sidequests right before the meteor hits earth dispel the same tension.

If anything, having any sense of time at all seriously compounds the tension more than the average game.

But w/e, I enjoy it regardless

I tried to finish my first playthrough before the semester started... I *almost* made it.

Dunno when I'll find time to finish it now.

I'm so miss Xenogears and Suikoden 2 after reading this...

Canary3492d ago

Think they'll bring either of those over to the PSN?

I spent $40 for a used copy of SuikoIII, but damn... Suikoden II is too expensive these days.

Were much better games than FFVII in my book. ^_^

Man i'm as convinced for this game as I was to wearing a bra for the first time.
