Atlus (the developer) + RPG = you can't really go wrong if you like your RPGs.

I think it just scraped a 12+ rating in Europe which is surprising - you blow your brains out anime style with an Evoker pistol to summon Personas to fight for you which is ... slightly different to waving a staff around.

Like most Atlus games it has plenty of longevity, e.g. there's a husbandry system for combining Personas to produce new ones with inherited stats, there are over 120 Personas, and then you've got the social side of things where you build links with groups in school during the day to access more powerful Personas and discover the storylines behind your friends.

For £24.99 in most stores it's a bargain considering you're getting the 6th highest ranked PS2 RPG of all time (based on average review scores), so right up there with the Final Fantasies, Dark Chronicles and DragonQuests and Kingdom Hearts.

Grab it and see what all the fuss is about - the mixture of High School Sim and Dungeon Crawling should keep you captivated, although the fact that you're constantly keeping an eye on the ingame clock (the day/night cycle is perpetual) and the anime presentation may take some getting used to.
