Decent, and average.
This game is no big, JRPG of the year hit, but I do think it needs more credit than it is given. It's no big hit, but I did think the battle system was captivating, bringing a challenge. The story, while subpar, had it's moments that interested me and kept me going. The dungeons and enemies usually looked well, but the character sprites did creep me out. I would recommend getting this game if you need a time filler, or something that you won't put too much thought into. It's not bad, and no, it is not exactly a SMT Persona clone- I would compare it more to "SMT IF," if anything. However two characters may remind you of familiars in Persona 4, they still have their differences. Mind = 0, is not bad, but nothing outstanding. It doesn't do bad at what it does, it just needs a better push.
Although a plain seeming RPG, with a somewhat shallow story, passable characters, and interesting battle set up, this game is highly under-looked. This is often looked at as "A Persona copycat," when really, it does seem like it at times, but it really isn't. There are only 4 similar characters to the Persona cast (P4 at least.) and an antagonist team (albeit ridiculous THG capital looking clothing. But this is the art style so.) that does raise questions, however, it is an original line. The game has a complex battle system, a decent soundtrack, and while subpar story and graphics, this game does pass the time, a fun time at that.
this game sucks
I bought this game thinking it would be good base of the video i seen on youtube. this game has the worst graphic i ever seen plus it have too much dialogue and not a lot freedom to explore around the map
Absolutely Shameless SMT/Persona Clone
After a reasonable of research and observation of this game, it's abundantly clear that they're trying to capitalize on Persona's popularity with "their own take" on it. That said, it's a good game, I personally plan on getting it once it's released. Solid first-person dungeon crawler, with traditional JRPG combat. Production values are a bit cheaper, but I've definitely seen worse.
For your average player it probably wouldn't warrant a full-price purchase. But, if you're a more invested fan of dungeon crawlers and are looking for something to fill your Vita library, it's not a bad choice, though you should pick up Persona 4 first as this one is essentially "Persona-lite". If you're just looking for a new IP, then I'd direct you towards Demon Gaze as it's probably the best of this genre on the Vita at the moment.
This is a very Persona-like dungeon crawler, and although it may seem like a cheep rip-off of the SMT spin-off, I believe it could be a great game. Although I don't know everything about this game, I can say I am happy it is making its way to the Vita in the U.S.. On top of the other rpgs coming to the Vita, this would make a good addition to any Persona or jrpg fan's PS Vita library. Will keep an eye on this one.
