What happened in the three hours of the game?
You begin by arriving at your uncles home Nd you adjust to your new life. You begin going to school and virtually get to know the main character and the people your going to be going through the game with. The actions picks up pretty quickly though.
 

What was the most challenging part you completed?
Definitely working my way through the ever changing dungeons. The dungeons in this game are random every time you come in here. They were very challenging at times.
Since they always change every time you go back into one, it's like exploring a brand new world.
 

What was the best part of the story?
When the game came to the all time high climax. Just when you think you beat the game, BAM you have another boss to fight (if you made the right choices at a certain point). This was no simple boss either. You had to think about where too find it. the last last boss was actually pretty surprising in terms of who/what.
 

Share the most innovative gameplay mechanic.
The persona system hands down. What's a Shin Megami game without personas. They all vary in a lot of different ways. You can build your team anyway you want. you can be a pure fighter or be a support character. Its your choice. The only issue I had with the Personas was the fact that you have to use personas to make stronger personas. So to get the strongest persona you have to work very hard to acquire it. But what's a reward without a little effort?
 

What ice cream flavor best represents this game?
Cotton Candy.
 With it's easy and fun gameplay and great characters, this game is enjoyable for anyone who likes too have a fun time.

I agree with this. This game really inspired me. Actually made me go and dig up my PS2 to play it, and I didn't regret it either.

What happened in the three hours of the game?   Those first few hours were retaining the relationship system that I got used to in Persona 3. I got used to the intriguing characters as well, personal favorite being Chie. The premise of the story is as bizarre, dark, and interesting as most SMT titles.      What was the most challenging part you completed?   Beating the "climax" boss. Goddamn him.     What was the best part of the …

A Unique Dungeon-Crawling RPG
I am a gamer by heart (amongst other things, I am also a dvdholic, I like Attack of the Show, spiders, blogging, dark graphic novels, etc.)  What's hot on my PS2 console?  (Yes, I own a PS3 but nothing can replace my ps2.)   Well, after almost 2 monthsof playing, I just finished Shin Megami Tensei Persona 4).  This game came out in 2008 but for some reason I just got my hands on it recently.   I also played Persona 3 prior to this and I can't help but compare that …

I say a lot of things about a lot of games, and I use a lot of superlatives, but when I say that Persona 4 is the best of the best, easily one of (if not the) greatest RPG experiences of all time, I mean it. With a thematically-relevant, gripping, pulse-pounding soundtrack that's combined with stylised, beautiful Soejima visuals, the most believable, human cast of characters in any contemporary or classical video game, and a plot that, while occasionally predictable, throws curveballs to the …

Sometimes, being a good girlfriend means sitting on the couch and watching him play a game or playing a game together. I'm a moderate gamer, the new controls are generally more complicated than I'm willing to commit to. He is a hard core gamer. Some games are easier to watch than others, and some are easier to play. This review is not for the hard core gamer. This review if for the girlfriend (or boyfriend, who am I to judge?) that sits on the couch and watches.    Persona 4 …

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 is the latest RPG to released for the PS2...and though the system may be old...this might be the best RPG in 2008. Much like the earlier games in the series...you control a group of teens...and the social responsibilities that come with it: school, social life, and battling monsters in a strange world inside their TVs that involve some gruesome murders...you know, all the typical aspects of an ordinary teenager. The battle system is the typical turn-based RPG system, …
