Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I absolutely love fighting games, the Persona series, and Arc System Works, the masterminds behind Guilty Gear and BlazBlue, so naturally one would think this game would be a smash hit. Technically it is, where in Japan it's become the number one selling fighting game in recent years, and if there's anything to be learned from that it's that fighting games aren't dead, despite the lack of "commercial" accessibility.

Luckily, ASW addresses that issue in Persona 4 Arena, which became almost instantly identifiable when I jumped into Challenge mode with Akihiko. I was expecting a GG or BB control scheme, complete with all sorts of different attacks for a single button that can be performed through simple directional inputs (e.g. 2C, 5C, 6C), which consequently opens the doors to long combo chains. Although that's quite fun, ASW left that system in those games and simplified things considerably here.

And by simplified, I mean that during the early days of this game's cycle you'll probably see a lot of players online spamming Auto Combos, which certainly look impressive and would be more difficult to perform normally, but as you can plainly see by the notation (a string of five A attacks, for example) the combo is pretty braindead. Before you shake your head in dismay, though, remember Marvel also has braindead combos (and characters), and it's a game that's easy to grasp yet hard to master. And as far as impressions go on day one of release, Persona 4 Arena seems that way as well.

Persona 4 Arena looks, plays, and feels in almost every way like an ASW title. It has multiple single player modes, such as a comprehensive tutorial, challenge mode, extremely robust story mode (understatement of the year!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start with a simple statement; I'm a fan of JRPGs, and have never tried to play a fighting game seriously before. While I did enjoy my time with one of Ark System Works' older titles, Blazblue: Calamity Trigger, my number one reason for buying this game is because I'm absolutely in love with the Persona series. Both Persona 3 and 4 rank among my favorite games, and I bought Persona 4 Arena hoping that it would serve as a neat little continuation of Persona 4's story. What I got was completely different.

As someone who bought the game primarily for its story, I can say with certainty that Persona 4 Arena's plot does not disappoint. Rather than serve as a small continuation of Persona 4, Arena's plot utilizes the well-established casts of both Persona 3 and 4 to tell an all new story filled with mystery, twists, and even some heart-wrenching moments. The story on display here is very, very good.

There's definitely more to a fighting game than its story, however, and the game absolutely shines in the gameplay department as well. Being a tad more simplistic than other serious fighting games like Blazblue, Street Fighter, and Tekken, Persona 4 Arena is both more accessible to newcomers than those games, and just as because of its unique game mechanics. While new players will be able to get by using the simple auto-combo the game has, playing online (which plays beautifully, by the way) will force you to learn timing, combos, and how to play mind games using your Persona and character-specific moves. It's an absolute blast to play.

I've been playing the game for hours on end, and still haven't even tried some of the modes yet; even for $60, this game is well worth the price.

So, I've only played Persona 3 FES and Persona 4, so I haven't had a terrible amount of experience in the Persona game area, but from what I have played, I've loved. I can't decide if I liked 3F or 4 better; each had their own qualities, such as Shinji in 3F (he was my favourite) and Teddie in 4. However, when I found out this game had characters from BOTH of the games mentioned, I had to buy it.

What I expected was the awesome usual gameplay of Persona, with the Social Links and the training. However, it's not at all like the other games. This one reads like a story, as someone else mentioned, with no actual gameplay asides from battling. It's a bit sad, considering the game play of other Persona games was awesome.

However, the story itself is great. It centres around a major arc from the P3F characters (that we never learn in the actual game, as a few years have gone by between the events of P3F and P4A. Two months have gone by between the events of P4 and P4A, with the story beginning with Yu (the MC from P4) going back to Inaba. Everyone is excited for his return, but then, when he gets back, everyone finds that the Midnight Channel is back. It's showing a battling programme, everyone fighting against each other in the P1 Grand Prix. The gang enters the TV- without Kanji, Teddie, or Rise, because they've gone missing- to find an impersonator of Teddie hosting the Grand Prix where they must fight against each other.

You play as each character separately, each character leading up to an arc where it stops and says 'To be continued'. I've only played through a few characters thus far and all endings have reached the same point before it cuts off... except for Kanji's arc. His 'TBC's at a different point, so maybe other endings end with different arcs, too.
