eh i dont care what any reviewer thinks that isn't a hardcore RPG fan. If you love RPG's then review RPG's if you love shooters then review shooters. If you dont have a deep appreciation for the genre then i dont trust your review. I know P2 will have its flaws, after all it's a port of a PS1 game. I'm still getting it though.n
Ugh, that line. Look, it's valuable to get a wide range opinions, not just from an increasingly insular group. Maybe you'll want your RPG lover to review a shooter because it's more inclined to people predisposed to RPGs, like Bioshock, or it's waffling the line like Deus Ex. Or maybe it's just a really great, accessible game to anyone. Similarly this review has the merit of telling people that can't stomach older games and/or is more of a modern Persona fan that this game isn't for them. 5.0 is pretty harsh, but people who haven't played EP before may well find themselves agreeing with that score in the end, or at least go for one SLIGHTLY higher.
...wow, I wasn't expecting that intelligent of a response you sir have earned some respect points. I will admit that i was a little wrong in my opinion that RPG games should be reviewed by RPG lovers. I was so mad at the review because the original PS1 game(or at least one of they're editors) gave it a 9.2 but the "port" to the PSP lost points for dated mechanics and dated visual design. It's a P-O-R-T, all the added was some upgraded character portraits, some new missions and better sound. Did chrono trigger loose points for outdated graphics? Or FFT war of the lions loose some for dated mechanics?
