I'm not talking story wise. The gist I get is that they play similarly.
They do.

Personally(totally not biased as I wrote the Raidou 2 article at HG101 :P), I like Raidou 1's story more. 2 has the better gameplay, of course.


As for the old SMTs: 1 has better story, 2 for better gameplay. Much like Raidou!

thanks to the joys of fan translations im currently playing innocent sin and i gotta say in terms of what goes on in the story this game makes persona 3 and 4 look kinda tame by comparison O_o.

It's no secret that Innocent Sin is my favorite Persona (and MegaTen) game because the story, characters, and writing are just so freaking good.  If it weren't released in 1999, it would have made my 10best of the decade list in lieu of Eternal Punishment. 

The half-assed orphanage scene in Final Fantasy VIII wishes it could be as cool as any ONE of the many flashback scenes in IS where the characters are hanging out at the shrine as children. 
Games I've given Editor's Choice to:
Ever 17, Hourglass of Summer, Anachronox, Persona PSP, Radiant Historia, To The Moon, Revolution 60

It would be a crime against all that is good if they didn't.

They COULD release this nowadays. Hitler in a game, pft. Show me a game these days that DOESN'T have Hitler in it.

This is the only one I'd have ANY DOUBT for, and that's more in case someone's worried about either
Code: [Select]
Hitler or the fact you have to fight a possessed principle.
Otherwise, yes.

Edit: Starmongoose, there are still some companies that are iffy about it, though it seems more relevant when you want to release the game in, say, Germany and have it kept the same there. The other thing I mentioned is more likely to be an issue, but then IS came out around when Columbine happened; it's been 10+ years since and as such I think people will be less touchy there.

... Failing all else, MegaTen's had little trouble dodging any serious controversy.

This will happen. Just watch. There will be a lot of angry Persona fans if this does not happen there will be a massive insurrection.

Persona 2 Innocent Sin announced for the PSP!

I had lost all hope hope of a remake of these games. Atlus, you know how to steal my money, you bastards. I'm kinda worried about the music thought, the remake of the original Persona for the PSP had a really annoying/disappointing soundtrack.

It has their good tracks here and there, but the original score was (and still is) pretty damn good.

When I heard the news of Innocent Sin I JIZZED IN MY PANTS!

Guys, the good news about this, not only that this is a great game is that it's Atlus. It's not Namco or Square-Enix, if it's Atlus we can be sure they'll localize. It doesn't have vocie acting,and it will probably be released on PSN so coasts will be low for a localization. I say I'm positive this will be localized!

Oh, and just for the sake of confusion, Innocent Sin is the first one, right ? Then comes Eternal Punishment, right ?
