@MitchyD: "I love Persona (only SMT games I've ever played), SMTIV lacks soul"

yeah, the mainline SMT games are pretty much the opposite of Persona. they lack soul, because it's all about that dungeon crawl.

LOL @ the responses to this.

"Soulless characters, inconsistent systems..."

Thank God this guy isn't reviewing the game. He does not understand that the characters are supposed to be ideological representations for the MC, or the gameplay at all for that matter.

But I guess he can't appretiate a game with mature themes that don't spoon-feed the player with friendship-flavored speeches. Or dungeons designed outside of a random procedural program. Or deep gameplay systems that don't get distracted by cutscenes and social sims. He wants Persona.

I like Persona, but he's judging the game off completely wrong expectations.

I think Nocturne had a surrealistic disconnect that can be taken as "soullessness." And I loved every minute of it.

Yeah, that game was just hardcore. But being the sissy I am, I took the neutral route...

And anyways, this guy is a pathetic gamer, if you could even call him one...

Isn't he that same guy who wrote that terrible Double Dragon Neon review?
