I pre-ordered this.

Looks very slick and fun.

I just hope the encounter rate is humane

It's worse than Digital Devil Saga.

It's demonic!

There's a demo out for this?

I don't get it.

The MegaTen games ARE generally good about allowing you to control the encounter rate. Nevertheless, the post-PS2 MegaTens >>> Pre-PS2 MegaTens on average, and it's showing with how critics thus far are receiving the game.

You mean in terms of reception or encounter rate?

It's mind-boggling that P2 Eternal Punishment could get 8s and 9s when it came out for PS1, and this is getting 5s and 6s, and while it's not the same game, it's nearly identical in style. Even Nocturne got great reviews when it came out....and suddenly people are complaining about the encounter rate for this? I guess people really want their hand held nowadays.

Reception. Honestly, the games were a bit of a pain to get into and not even in a way that really made them deep or anything, just a bit grindy (making a new Persona with one skill sucks, especially if you go into a dungeon and discover you're in over your head yet can't back out), the newer titles polish the gameplay while not doing some Fable-esque dumbing down as they still have a bite to them. Nocturne was way, WAY better than anything the PS1 saw.

I liked the story and whatnot, I just hated how personas were handled. I was younger though, and maybe I'll have a smoother time with Innocent Sin.

I loved Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment and I don't feel the same way at all. X.X I think those games are great, and yeah the encounter rate is high, but nothing else really bothered me in them.

I liked P2:IS, P2:EP and Soul Hackers more than any of the PS2 Megatens. Not that the latter are bad games in any way, mind you. But they do feel dumbed down in comparison, Personas especially.

To be fair RPGs and game industry in general has changed since then. People now are much less likely excuse pitfalls and clunky gameplay of yesteryear like that, especially when a Remake should smooth this stuff out. One of the reasons P3 and 4 were so well receive is because a lot of these issues were streamlined or fixed.

Anyway, if there's way to lower encounters to more manageable levels, it won't much of a problem then.

Gamespot gave it a 50% rating. To me, a 50% rating is a game that is sloppily put together, has alot of glitches, maybe has second rate voice actors, probably a movie tie in game. Generally stuff done to generate a quick buck. Yes game reviews are subjective, blablabla, but Innocent Sin did not warrant a 50% rating simply because the reviewer didn't like the encounter rate.
