Okay plot and meh gameplay. Visuals and music alone carry the whole game.

Persona 2 Innocent Sin es una experiencia conmovedora por su elenco de personajes que vas a querer en todo el trayecto.
Va poniéndose durísimo en la recta final de la trama por todos sus giros bizarros.
La cura contra la depresión es juntarte con tus panas a detener una secta oculista de control mental y a un ejército nazi.

The first half of what is without a doubt the best story in the Persona series. Unfortunately, the gameplay was only marginally better for me than Persona 1's, and some of the OST's screeching made my ears hurt. Fortunately, both of these are improved in EP for me.
Maya and Tatsuya are both some of the best characters and protagonists in videogame history, despite both of them being silent for one of the two games.

story is great, gameplay is the worst
Eikichi is the best
