This game is NOT for everyone. I decided based on the average rating but did no research on this game prior. I'm a lover of JRPGs and Japanese games in general. But I'd put it in the same category as a Dark Souls where most people probably won't enjoy this game based on the barrier to entry. No loss though, I'll just say check this game out before renting.

Not Worthy of Shin Name

I have been with the series since day 1 back on the NES days. This is by far one of the worst Shin games since Strange Journey back on the NDS days.

The game is largely empty, with little to no story plot, bland characters, no romance, also no choices what-so-ever. The game is repititive, Quest, Quest, then Story, you constantly die over & over due to high level Demons.

I whish I rented this game instead of buying the game it isnt woth 55 Dollars, it is a Rent if anything. Being a Hardcore Shin fan I was really disappointed with the game.

Also people you can not compare Persona with Shin Megami those are 2 diffrent Genre's being Dating Sim while Shin is Old School Dungeon Crawler being extremly difficult. Even for an Expert gamer such as me. Me I say advoid this game like a Plague.

I am now very worried on Persona 5. By the way this is my 19th Shin Megami game.
