Review: Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2 - Innocent Sin (Sony PSP)

 

From there things get weirder. It turns out Joker has a massive grudge with Tatusya, but will not say what it is. Reality also starts to unravel as tales of fancy become actual fact. The statue of Seven Sisters' principal begins to move on its own. A...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin Playtest – Let’s Be Positive!

 

Aside from cosmetic changes, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin is the same game from 1999 – now in English. The story begins with manly Tatsuya, Lisa “Ginko” Silverman, and the flamboyant Eikichi summoning the Joker.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2 - Innocent Sin Review

 

More than 10 years after its original release, Persona 2: Innocent Sin no longer has the magic it once did.

Story and characters eventually develop into something interesting ; A lengthy adventure with plenty of side quests

Extremely frequent random encounters hurt the pacing ; Story takes too long to pick up ; Bland, outdated visual design ; Combat mechanics are dull and repetitive

The PSP version introduces a movie theater you can visit to play two new side quests, so those who imported the original PlayStation release will find some new content here. But Innocent Sin wasn't hurting for content to begin with. The main story...
