Persona 4 was a decent installment of the series from what I've played so far, but not as good as the third. It too seemed to go on for a long time and I got a little board of the gameplay. The story line was still really good, just as good as the third and for that reason alone I would recommend anyone who's a fan of RPG's to rent this.
This has got to be my favorite game. The characters are so amazing and lovable I actually felt like I was saying goodbye to real friends when the game ended. The fighting is a bit on the hard side, but that was a challenge I hadn't had in a while, and it was a welcome one.
Beware though, if you aren't into RPGs, dating simulators, or dungeon crawlers, steer clear. 'Cause that's 100% of this game. But if you love a great story and characters then you might want to play through this anyway on easy just to experience the amazing game that is Persona 4.
+Amazing Characters all with their own back stories and issues.
+Fun combat if you grind enough (more on that later)
(Only one Con because it's the only down side to me.)
If you don't grind, you will find out real quickly how tough this game really is. And Sp(basically MP) recovery items are EXTREMELY rare so if you run out you have to leave for that day, so you can't grind forever and you can't finish dungeons in one go. Later you can recover SP but it'll cost ALOT of yen.
