I loved this game i bought FES and 4 because of this it took away from me playing ps3 games on my ps3 lol, it is on the longer side but if you like JRPGs this is one of the best. Has a great story, i doesnt really feel like the other SMTs kinda felt like they just put his branding on it so it would sell but they really didnt need to this game was great. worth the rent for sure and in my case its a buyer.

Cutscene: A couple slow breaths, a shot on the monster ready to pounce on a helpless victim, another slow breath, a teenager holds a gun and thinks of what to do with it. He holds it with two hands curious of what he can do he slowly places it to the side of his head and slowly utters the word, "Persona." BANG!! A spirit comes out of his head and your first fight begins.

I was hooked for a seventy hour journey at that scene and I eagerly await a chance to sit through it again.

This game is epic! It takes place during a standard japanese school year. You have until the end of the school year to complete the game's objectives. On the final day of the school year, YOU CANNOT LEAVE THE DUNGEON YOU MUST BEAT THE GAME.

During the day you attend school and afterward you can improve your social links, attend events, or at night choose to go to the only dungeon called Tartarus. Tartarus is a massive labyrinth that appears only at night and it is where you're RPG elements and social link status are applied.

The controls are easy, the menus are well explained, and the elements are customizable to your needs.

The story will suck you in quickly and you will only come up for air once in a while or to sleep but this game won't get out of your head. The soundtrack is superb and even when you're done playing you'll be asking yourself what do I do next when I pick up the controller again.

This is one of my favorite games and I wanted to share my great experiences with you hoping that you will give this dark horse a try and maybe enjoy it as much as I did.
