5.0 out of 5 stars Different but familiar August 8, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is different, and nowhere near in a bad way. Featuring a 46 lesson training mode that everyone should do soon as the game starts up. To put everything in a nutshel this game has normal 2d fighting game mechanics (move cancels, super moves, special attacks, aerial blocks etc) pretty much what you'll expect from Arc System Works but it also has strong and weak persona attacks, all out attacks, instant kill attacks, status ailments, penalties, awakened sp skills, almost too much to name honsestly. Since I've gotten my 360 I've went through almost every 2d fighting game out and this is the most unique and flat out fun one and i don't regret trying it. Of course it has the usual modes too (Network, vs, challenge, score attack, arcade, story, lesson mode, theater & gallery plus the xbox marketplace, but the real meat of this game is the fighting and that's how every fighting game should be. Another step forward in my opinion is that it doesn't have a "simple" fighting style which makes multiplayer a little unbalanced in most fighting games plus it has a REAL story (still pictures and voice overs & some fmv. The usual when it comes to fighting games) it's a pretty long winded one just like BlazBlue and the whole game has a very persona feel to it. It's not just characters ripped out of the game pasted in a fighting engine
Im hoping this is just the 1st in what could be a very good persona series fighting game and even though i'm a huge BlazBlue fan something just makes this more appealing, now a Persona vs. Blazblue game. That would be good, but this is good for now

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   
Persona 4 Arena is a extremely fun entry into the fighting game genre. While recently it seems that this genre has suffered from cannibalism with a large amount of fighters coming out this year, if you are a fan of 2D fighters or want to give them a try I urge you to pick this one up. The cast is small in comparison to other fighters however you can tell that the Persona team put a great deal of effort and care into making each one completely unique, often with a distinct meter system that is character specific. The art in this game is flashy but not so much that you can't tell what is going on. There is a tremendous amount of support for newcomers built in to this game. Basics of fighting games are covered including how to apply mix-ups, pressure, and punishes. There are challenge missions that will help you build basic practical combos into some of the more advanced ones. I am a huge fan of classic 2D fighters, but I feel that this game in particular takes everything I loved about those games and is not afraid to build upon it to create a fighter that is definitely worthy of its own spot in casual and tournament play.

5.0 out of 5 stars great fighting game with tons of style August 13, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The idea of marrying a JRPG with a fighting game might have seemed weird, but Persona 4 Arena pulls it off brilliantly. Arc System Works has done a great job of making a game that doesn't just look like Persona, but feels like it too.

In the Persona games, each character has a Persona with special skills they use in battle. So it is here - each character has strong and weak attacks, and their Persona has strong and weak attacks. The Persona has a mini health bar of its own, and five hits sends it away to recover. There are even status effects like poison and dizzy, similar to what you'd see in a RPG.

Like ASW's other games, this game is fast-paced, technical, and with lots of different systems around. In addition to Persona break, there is a meter (indicated with SP, like the Persona games) and a burst. However, the game doesn't get bogged down by the details. It's pretty accessible, and even has a simple auto-combo system for the button mashing beginners.

Persona 4 Arena is a full-featured game with a detailed story mode with lots of cinemas and voice acting, an arcade mode, a score attack mode (with full online leaderboards), a lesson mode with tutorials, a challenge mode, and a training mode. Unlike a Capcom fighter, there's lots to do here.

The online mode deserves a special mention. First of all, the game does an excellent job of pairing up fighters with good connections. This is key, and it's also why so many games seem to have bad "netcode." By pairing up people who have a good connection to one another, Persona 4 Arena ensures the hard work is already done. Once in the game, it plays great - as close to a local game as one can get. Combos hit, action is intense, and it just works great.
