An incredible-- no, unforgettable experience for me. The story and characters are amazing... but do not play the PlayStation Portable version.
A horribly crippled UI in basically every way, a broken battle system basically warped into working as a more "typical" RPG, and the pathetic difficulty makes this game... frankly, the gameplay is not fun at all.
Play the PlayStation version, with a fan translation. You will get a beautiful, tragic and engaging story alongside actually tolerable gameplay (on PSP, I hadn't even needed to use the Velvet Room at all, that's how bad it gets).

Despite the combat being atrocious the story is incredible and enough to keep me going.

Otimos personagens, otima trama, otimas músicas, otimas mensagens, etc etc etc. Uma pena ter um combate lento (so a demon negociation é interessante), dungeons arrastadas cheias de inimigos e um final apressado. Mas mesmo assim, eu fico feliz por ter experimentado esse jogo, não me arrependo de ter dado uma chance a ele de nenhuma forma.

The story is really good. Not worse than any Persona as far as I'm concerned.
For the gameplay, I recommend cheating.

(tatsuya suou voice) car starting. VRRRM! VRRM! VRRRRRRRMM!!

best story in the persona series so far, but also has the second worst combat
