Games Review: Persona 4
PS2, Square Enix, £19.99
Saturday 10 January 2009
Despite the fact that its time in the limelight is over, the PlayStation 2 is still going strong, especially as a platform offering a wide range of RPGs.
Persona 4, the latest in a series of impressively involving Japanese titles, offers gamers an interesting ride thanks to its semi-fantastical setting, a city where the weather has a sinister effect on inhabitants and a series of murders and abductions. As a high-school student and pals take on the mysterious forces behind the town’s oddities, expect lots of turn-based combat and alternate realities.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
