    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 visual style, its unusual characters, and its absorbing gameplay systems make it a game to kill plenty of hours with this winter.
  5. This game looks as good as it can, and the gameplay still offers a few tricks you won't find in your average RPG. [Aug 2004, p.103]
  6. A very intricate, engrossing, and abnormal RPG. If you like things a tad on the bizarre side, Persona: Eternal Punishment is right up your alley. People who should stay away from Persona 2 are novice players.
  7. The aspect of contacting and interacting with demons was also an element that I fully embraced. It broke the monotony of simply killing and killing in order to gain experience points.

    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. Expand

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