Persona 2: Eternal Punishment – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Strong Language, Suggestive Themes

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment

Game Description: Maya Amano, a cub reporter at the Seven Sisters High School is trying to solve a series of gruesome murders in Sumaru City. That’s the setup for Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, an engaging RPG with somewhat serious overtones. Maya and friends will wander through a world of monsters and demons on a quest to save the city from the grips of The Joker. In addition to monsters you can outwit rather than outfight, you’ll also come across rumormongers that can be told lies that will change the entire complexion of the game. Throughout the city there are also engaging spells that let you call on additional personas to help defeat the Joker and solve the case. This engaging RPG is filled with realistic monsters and demons, 80 different persona spells, captivating dialogue that both informs and entertains, eerie music that sets the tone for the game and a rumor system that lets you affect the game's events and story.

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment – Second Opinion

While most games in the genre place an onus on fighting and leveling up your characters, Eternal Punishment relies far more on having the right personae equipped than being at a high level or having the newest weapon. That demons can be contacted and battle avoided adds another twist to the formula as well. Brawn doesnt win many battles in this game, and reaching the end successfully will require a great deal of forethought and experimentation.

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment – Review

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment is definitely an RPG in every sense of the word, but changes the formula enough to become a breath of fresh air instead of a double dose of valium. The bare-bones gist of the story is that you play the role of magazine reporter Maya Amano, who is tracking down a serial killer terrorizing metropolitan Sumaru City.
