Generally favorable reviews - based on 6 Critics What's this?

  • Summary: It is not safe to go out alone in Lunarvale anymore. Suspicious looking men in dark suits roam the town. Mysterious machines rumble and squeal from deep beneath the earth. What is their purpose? Who is the spirit of the little girl dressed in black, and what does she want from you? These, and many more mysteries, are up to you to solve. But weird things begin to happen once you begin to play the game. Expand

    If you aren't familiar with the Revelations series this is the perfect chance to jump into a deep, exciting new experience.
  2. The overlooked early gem of the PlayStation's RPG library. [Aug 2004, p.102]

    Add to this a unique method of spellcasting (similar to Final Fantasy 3's espers), multiple endings, a hidden character, plus much more, and you have an RPG masterpiece.
  4. The dialogue in Persona is, in a word, insane. Safe money says the translation team stayed up late watching Jerry Springer while they were working, because a good portion of the lingo is of the "Oh, my bad!" and "Girlfriend!" variety.
  5. Despite the flaws, Persona offers a lengthy quest with a fun battle system, and an interesting system for character customization.
  6. It's a confusing and uninspiring game that leaves you frustrated and wanting to play something else.

    This was my introduction to console RPG's, and I had a blast with it. The modern setting really made it for me. I get tired of the medieval nonsense. Expand
