I played it for about 20 min, got mad, turned it off, and sent it back. Very frustrating controls and and gameplay. The sad part is the story was kind off interesting, (very dark, scary and not quite sure whats going on) but i just couldnt get into it. I'm still a HUGE Atlus fan, just think they missed the mark on this one. :(
I'll admit, when I first tried this game, I didn't like it very much. However, after I took the time to listen to what the NPCs say, I found it very enjoyable. If you really want to enjoy this game, you must experiment. Throw all of your items at every NPC to see what they say. One of them even explains in detail every item you throw at "it".
Oh, there are indeed ways to keep items across deaths. You just have to figure it out though.
This game is quite a breath of fresh air in the world of video games today where instructions are fed to you like a child.
To die is the best for your charcter, and the game

I'm sorry but this game is horrid! I hate anything in a game that results in turning your character into a ticking time bomb. You have your HP (health points) and VT (vitality). Once you VT goes to 0, you start to lose HP. Once your HP hits 0 your dead. Oh but dying can be a good thing! I don't know who thought of this but the basic premise of every game ever made is to NOT DIE! Your character is so slow and the enemies are so fast, you basically have to become a tank in order to survive. The controls are sloppy. The lock-on function can be interrupted if you turn the camera. The game ALWAYS looks hazy unless you view things that are only 10 feet away. I basically played this game for a few hours, and then almost literally threw it back in the sleeve it came in and chucked it into my mailbox. The only redeeming things from this game are as follows: an odd yet tantilizing story, poetic dialogue, unique characters fill the world, and the basic requirements for an RPG are filled (endless enemies that can be killed for XP which makes you stronger). 4/10
