How good is Persona 2 Innocent Sin?

#1MyLovelyTotoriPosted 4/6/2013 7:45:22 AM
I got some questions, please kindly answer them if you would.

1. What's the difference between Persona 2 Innocent Sin and Persona 2 Eternal Punishment? They look really similar honestly. But the price tag is way too different.

2. What should I expect from the gameplay? Is it similar to P3 or P4? Do I also get to engage in social links and does it still have limited time schedule to do everything?

1: EP is a sequel to IS.

2: No calendar, no social links. A straight-up RPG but with a better and more mature story than either 3 or 4. Slightly dated gameplay, but nothing too bad if you're used to PS1 games.

A lot of people on this board hate it because it's not P3 or 4. Ignore them.

Thanks for answering! You're a life saver.

I think I'm interested in that. Will get it after 12 April

I hate the game, it had potential but the random dungeon negotiating with the demons was too much, too annoying especially coming from the much improved dungeon system you got from games like p3p and p4G.

That's... Just like SMT Strange Journey? But I thought "Persona" don't have that kind of thing

If you like main SMT titles you'll like P2

Imagine Persona without all of the bulls*** that's meant to pander to otaku and foreveralone. That's basically what it is.

Mainly yes, except Devil Survivor I guess since I never really been a big fan of SRPG games....

The earlier Persona games were similar to mainline SMT. You negotiate with Personas instead.
