    Very well done, I was surprised honestly how it would turn out! They do a great job of getting you started.

    They do a great job at keeping you interested and they give you lessons on all the basics, most games wont do that. Its got an interesting story that goes along with the persona series. Definitely a...

    P4A's combination of minor innovations to the fighting genre, along with its license, make it enjoyable.

    While I strongly prefer Capcom to Arc when it comes to 2D fighters, I found this game to be more enjoyable than BlazBlue and some recent entries to the Guilty Gears series. The game offers little in ...

    Persona 4 Arena is a breath of fresh air in a somewhat stagnant genre.

    Rated on August 12, 2012 by JayTac1

    Let me first admit that I'm not a hardcore fan of the fighting genre, I do thoroughly enjoy a good fighting game, however I haven't played any and every title that's out there. In fact this is probabl...

    The game is one of the best recreations of a popular series I have ever seen. P4: Arena really is a personified fighter.

    To be honest I don't know very much about the world of Persona 4. Persona 4: Arena is a fighting game based on Persona 4. A reliable source told me that this game doesn't steer away from the things t...

    An entertaining and fun sequel that cleverly ties together Persona 3 and 4.

    Rated on August 30, 2012 by Lucky_Krystal

    When I heard that Atlus was working with Arc Systems Works to create a fighting game featuring Persona 3 and 4 characters, I expected big things from them, and both parties did not fail to deliver. ...

    I've not even had dreams this tasty, An Idea I thought only existed by the mind of Paul Robertson.

    This is what we need more of. Mash up game titles stepping into relms where they probably don't belong. It worked for brawl and so why not this. Also for those who waited for a guilty gear anime, this...

    Great fighting game, but really bare bones, boring story, and only 13 characters.

    Rated on March 28, 2014 by ristactionjakso

    I can't complain to much since I bought this game for $15 off a psn sale, but this game is lacking in so many area. Don't get me wrong, I love how well the fighting mechanics are. The battles are fas...
