Overall its a great game. The fighting is awesome and so is the story. If you are a fan of Persona you will like this. This game has characters from Persona 3 and 4. Heck, even if you never played ANY Persona game you would enjoy this. It is not like other Persona games. Its a nice change of pace though.
As with every game i try for the first time I do the tutorial first. The game had gorgeous graphics and nice frames. I can tell thats what the developers were counting on to pull in the consumers. the mechanics however was like trying to pilot a tank. Why couldn't they have made it similiar to the typical fighter genre(capcom vs marvel,tekken, etc.)?
