I have to admit this is my first real experience with a JRPG and I have to say I just love it. The fights are fun the story is absorbing and it's easy to figure out the game play without sitting through long boring tutorials. There's a lot of stuff to discover and do and it just doesn't get dull. What's nice about the Vita Version is that you can get online tips on what to do and when to do things and even help in dungeons if you get stuck.
Word of warning though is that there are some points where you will be sitting through 10-15 minutes of cut scenes for one reason or another. It's a very story heavy game but if you like that sort of thing (like me) then it's not a problem. Most of them are funny or heavy plot oriented and a joy to watch. If you're new to the persona games that's not a problem either as the game is pretty stand alone with only a few persona 3 references thrown in.
Anyway I'm just blown away by this game. It's the first game to make me actually lose track of time because I'm so engrossed with it. I'm even starting a second play through already. It's just that fun.
Best JRPG I've ever played. Actually one of the only ones I've ever liked. I'm usually just into the action RPGs. The only turn-based RPG I've played recently was Pokemon, but the story of this game just drew me completely in. I never had played a Persona or even a Shin Megami Tensei of any kind before, but after this one I'm going to have to play some more of them.
