Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great story and characters
The story and characters are pretty deep and well written, you start to really care for their problems. The story itself will leave you guessing and has a few twists and turns you won't see coming.
Pro Tons of content
Persona is centered around summoning "personas" in order to do battle for you (in the games turn based battles). These personas can be altered and combined, giving access to more personas to use in the game. Just this aspect alone can provide 100s of hours of gameplay.
Then there is the dating sim aspects, where the player can choose from a plethora of characters to romance. This is done through choices the player can make while playing such as what to eat or where to work as well as who to hang out with.
These elements not only flesh out the characters in the game, but also the personas used for battle. Combining them both into one game allows for a very meaningful experience that can be enjoyed for quite a long time.
Con Slow to start
In game tutorials and introducing the player to all the gameplay mechanics can take up to two hours. This is a large amount of time invested to finally start freely playing the game without any limits, which may not appeal to everyone.
