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!

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.

Honestly, this game totally came out of nowhere for me. I first played at a friends house and was surprised at how good it was. Persona 4 Arena uses the Blazblue fighting system (developed by same team) and brings some great 2D fighting mechanics. It has a lot of replay value in its Story Mode, Arcade Mode, Challenges, and Online Battles.
The characters are pretty balanced compared to the great MvC2. I recommend for Persona and/or Fighting fans!

Persona 4 Arena overall is a fun and great game. It's a perfect balance of having gameplay mechanics that are friendly to the casuals but it does not take away the competitiveness for the hardcore fighting gamers. A hardcore fighting gamer myself was at first skeptical on how simple the controls, auto-combos, etc. When I poured more hours of the game from local matches to online matches, I not only experienced the competitive flow in many matches but enjoy the game like any ordinary game should make you enjoy. You can still create your own advanced combos, strategies, even modify the button layout to your liking. The game is heavily balanced which makes it all the more fun. I recommend this game to the hardcore fighting gamers, the persona fans of the jrpg series, and I would even recommend this to total casuals. I, a persona and a hardcore fighting gamer approve of this game! Good job Atlus!

I picked this up last year because I love Persona 3 and 4, and didn't get around to playing it until the summer, which I am happy about because it made the wait for the sequel shorter.
I didn't pre-order it and play it immediately because I'm not a huge fan of fighting games and was not aware that there was a new story. I assumed that it was just a fighting game that featured the characters from Persona.
However, this isn't just a fighting game. It's a fighting game with a classic Persona storyline that is set a few months after Persona 4, and 2 years after Persona 3. Even someone who doesn't like fighting games will be drawn into the story. To unlock more of the story, you need to keep fighting, so the story is never secondary to the fighting game part of it.
The playable characters include ones from Persona 3: Mitsuru, Akihiko, Aigis and Elizabeth as an extra unlock able, as well as the regulars of Persona 4 (Teddy, Chie, Yukiko, Yosuke, Kanji, Naoto, and Yu.) And new character Labrys who is the star and cause of the story. Non-playable characters include Rise and Fuuka.
To summarize, a few months after the events of Persona 4, an incident brings the partial cast of Persona 3 into the TV World where the cast of Persona 4 are already gathered and entered against their will in a fighting tournament. The two casts meet and work together to try to find out who is behind it all.
The game consists of storyline and battles. Once you win the battles, the story continues. Each character has a different angle or piece of the story that unlocks more characters for more of the story, and some let you make choices choose your own adventure style that either let you continue, or result in Game Over.
