yea the game is not super long the thing that makes me keep coming back is getting gold on all levels so I can open up everything in Babel.

im on 8-1, about 11 hrs in. in this playthrough im answering all the questions in an effort to be with katherine, next playthrough will be catherine, and then 3rd playthrough ill answer them exactly how i'd act in real life just to see who i'd end up with lol. love this game, and pretty surprised ign gave it a 9 since usually their reviews are terrible. 3 different playthroughs plus multiplayer (babel) makes this well worth the day 1 purchase at frys. and holy crap at the 5-3 boss... outright terrifying.

Just finished the game last night. Clocked in at 14 hours. Got the Catherine true end. Man did the game just get even better right at the last few hours.

Spoiler



Totally worth the day-1 purchase.

Are you going through it on Easy? If that is too hard there's Very Easy mode. Hold/Back select on the game mode select screen until you hear a chime. Then select easy as the difficulty.

I think the Very Easy Mode is the "Easy" Mode in this version. Even though the manual states otherwise, Atlus must have overseen it.

Game DESTROYED my day yesterday. Played 12 hours straight, saw it was 0600 and time for work. :lol: Game is not without its flaws but probably my favourite game on the year. Well worth multiple playthroughs. Trying to not play it today because I need sleep :lol:

It is a gravure model film, basically an attractive woman poses and acts sexy for long periods of time. Clothes don't usually come off in gravure, and when they do nudity is never shown. It was announced quite some time ago, it's from a gravure movie company that was inspired by the game, Atlus had nothing to do with it.

I'm stuck on The Child level. Playing on Normal. Resorted to watching the videos and still can't beat it. I really don't want to resort to going to Easy/Very Easy, but I may have to.

I really want to like this game but the controls are absolute shit. I've died more times because I can't get Vincent off of a block (and he has one directly below him). It's beyond frustrating, so much so that it's tempting to sell this on eBay and get my money back...

Again, I REALLY want to like this game.

Beat the game yesterday on normal. Got the normal lovers ending. That last battle was pretty rough. Now to go back and play through on the other modes. Some of the levels were a bit hard, but that made it far more rewarding when I got to the exit.

Definitely glad I bought this game.

If you press the circle button, he'll drop off the block.
The only part of the controls that I still struggle with is they aren't consistent when you're hanging and moving.

Beat it last night on very easy (lol). This game was a huge disappointment. When I thought the story couldn't get any worse, it just kept going downhill. The dialogue was awful. It kept getting more and more animu. And the gameplay just wasn't fun to me. I could see people liking it, but I didn't, and the story/characters were not good enough to hold the game together. People on NeoGAF shit on the GiantBomb review that gave it a 2/5 but I think it's the most accurate review of the game I've seen.

Too bad you didn't enjoy the game overall. I thought the story got better and better especially towards the end. Things i was wondering about got cleared up and game-play wise it got hard enough on Normal that it was really satisfying when I finally got through it.

I can't help but wonder, if this game didn't have the pedigree it does, would people still like it?

Yea just press a button and you drop off. I don't have any problem with the control at all, aside when you are hanging behind a block and the control is reverse. However that a small part of the game it didn't bother me that much

I like the game. I don't think it's a blockbuster or anything, but it's origional and fresh. I really like the story so far. If the controls could just stay consistant--if you keep pushing left and he'd keep going the same direction, no matter what side of the cube he's on--it would be much easier to play. Several times I get stuck on the other side of the cube, and he's not moving the direction I think he should be moving--it's very disorienting. So when that happens, I find myself having to guess which button to press to make him go the direction I want. If I could just get used to the controls, albeit they're broken, I could probably enjoy the game on normal and/or hard. Anyway, thank God for the undo button (SELECT). If I get stuck, I press that to undo and try again.

Anyway, the game is pretty high priced at $60, but I think it's totally worth $30. It's a nice diversion from the games I planned on playing this year, so I really can't complain about it. Also, it's just so freaking bizarre that it keeps me coming back.

Also that Rapunzel game is really fun. If that were accessible as a stand-alone game for $2.99, I would really like to have it.

Overall, the game is at least better than average, and I'd give it a solid B.

Being from the persona team is just icing on the cake. Any game for me is how everything comes together story/gameplay/music/style. This game does this really well. Even though you say this has pedigree it's not anywhere near a AAA game tier, a lot of reviewers were still not impressed with the texture/graphics on this, calling them blurry and messy. Just look at Shadows of the Damned, that had real pedigree and people didn't like it and sold shockingly bad.

Fixed.

I watched the other endings on Youtube and the Catherine ending is much better than the Katherine ending (which I got). Maybe I would have been more satisfied after beating it if I got that ending instead.
