Then, as you get farther in, the combat just gets better and the amount of attacks are astounding (compared to P3 and P4 all of the personas have a lot more diverse attacks instead of bufu/ ice and buffula/ med ice and then bufaga strong ice etc. the point is theres more than just elemental attacks in this game, but don't get me wrong P3 and P4 are awesome games as well) Overall, this game is great because it sucks you into the story if you can get past the crappy graphics and the first 6 hrs of "easy" dungeons it really becomes a blast. After a while, it just becomes fun and i cant wait to see where the story goes I know this is a game ill play until the end :) Hope you decide to experience this rare treasure of a game as well.
The whole part about collecting demons to use as your personas would be cool but they don't add very much to battles. At least not enough to stir interest to experiment extensively with. I feel this aspect had a lot of potential to further customize the gameplay that simply wasn't utilized anywhere near to its full capability. You will spend a LOT of time going through mazes of blank, unremarkable hallways that all look exactly the same no matter what building you're in. At the time this game came out this might have been par for the course, but by today's standards it is tedious. Also you will often acquire a new person to your party that will join at such a low level, if you want to utilize them at all, you will have to spend a lot of time grinding just to get their level up to snuff with the rest of your party. There is no quick way to tank a low level character...but don't worry, there are oodles of random encounter battles to slog through.
Aside from all the flaws, there's still something unique about the game that kept me playing it. It's not terrible. The characters are interesting, and there's something about the atmosphere that I like. If you can tolerate the endless corridors & frequent random encounters, and the mind-numbing battle mechanics, there's a cool story going on. The characters may not be the most profound personalities ever developed in a video game but they're all unique in their own way, despite some blatant (and unintentionally humorous) stereotyping.
If you do not like the JRPG genre...you will find this game to be very difficult, and likely extremely confusing. More a source of frustration, then enjoyment. Still, it's a fantastic game.
