  1. There's more than 50 hours of continually branching narrative and vicious freeform combat awaiting those brave enough to enter its dark and twisted world.

    Its unique modern-day setting along with terrific characters and a dark story make Persona 2 an engaging game from start to finish. It's truly a must for serious RPG fans.
  3. The demonic and fittingly adult storyline goes hand in hand with the updated and modernized look, it's almost as if a Clive Barker movie went RPG.

    Just not the sterotype of medieval adventure with princess (a.k.a. "ff9").

    I have played this game many times before and even now as I play it again, still it gives the creeps on me again. Complete with adult storyline, demonic style, combined with very good graphics this game really rocks. Only one good advice is that do not ever get too deep into the game or you'll find yourself asking if it's reality based. Believe me coz' if you'll do it you'll spin your head hard enough. Anyway try this game coz' this is really a good game with a good story and good graphics. Full Review »
