hmmmm....okI bought this game because ign gave it fighting game of the year. I buy all fighting games usually anyway but really don't care to much for the 2d side of the fighters. Persona 4 is no different than any other 2d fighter you blast away at the opponent with any button configuration that may work. Know lets ask a question. Why do developers that make fighting games have to complex the controls of a fighter game? Call of duty, Mario, Zelda, final fantasy, and the list goes on with games that makes millions in currencies world wide with easy smooth controls. But when it comes to someone who makes fighting games you just tear the controls completely up. Death by degree, toe fang, any one of those snk games with the unearthly never to be defeated end bosses and the list goes on. Know I must say I do like persona 4 its the best 2d fighter out their. I play it to the end every time . Usually in a 2d fighter I play to the next to end boss than reset the game. Persona 4 is playable all the way through. It does need more characters just like skull girls, persona have only a hand full of characters. 16 should be the bare minimal of characters in fighting games. No ghost look a likes that's cheating. The graphics are good but no level interaction like in dead or alive. The sound is ok to but I never pay to much attention to the music as long as they have something that isn't hateful playing is ok with me . Their isn't many characters to choose from they use the ghost look alike technique to add a few characters to the rooster. They could have added back ground characters from the tv show to beef up the rooster a little. The story is where the game shines I only been in it for about 2 hours and its good. All in all to me its good I don't think its fighter of the year but I'm not the only one with an opinion either. Persona do make me take a second look 2d games I was starting to walk away because the controls and combats where getting to be to much. Like the games I mentioned up top for poor controls just think how much money can be made if programmers focus on players having fun than players being frustrated. I don't like to think of the controls will playing a game all I want to focus on is what's going on screen. If your in to fighters persona 4 is nice pickup and you can do most of the moves. And its not to complex. Last thing persona 4 has something I really like that's in dead or alive and street fighter even though some of the moves and combos are to hard. Still anyone can challenge you. Meaning you have to be good no matter what if you want to bet your friends. Also meaning your not stuck with a fighter no one but you want to play. just for the memory's of people who are as old as I remember when everyone use to meet up to play street fighter.

An excellent fighter for newbies and pros.I've never been a huge fighting genre fan, but since I loved Persona 4, I knew I had to give this a try. I've been hooked since it was released, it's easily accesible to start playing when you first get into it, but the more you play, the more the depth starts to show. If you want to get into the upper echelon of competion you're going to have to learn how to play for real, but the game does a great job of getting you off to a good start. Plus the tons of modes, great menus, awesome sound track, great graphics... you really can't go wrong. If you're a Persona 4 fan(and persona 3 fan), you MUST check out the story, but otherwise it's not too necessary, I'd stick with Arcade mode. Side note: Getting all the trophies/achievements will be a bit of a nightmare, so if you're a trophy guy... ye be warned.

From a new player's point of view....Honestly, I wasn't a fan of fighting games. The only fighting games I liked were the Soul Calibur series. But I'm also an AVID RPG, MMORPG, you know....The fantasy games. But I was also a fan of SMT: Persona 3-4, and when this was announced, I decided to try it. Now....
I'M ADDICTED TO FIGHTING GAMES.
I honestly can't stop playing this. It is SO much fun. So much fun in fact, I got some BlazBlue games. (I still play this P4A more though hehe....). But I underestimated fighting games, and if this comes out with a sequel, I'm getting it. VERY fun game.
