About Persona 4
Shortly after an urban youth begins a year-long stay in the countryside town of Inaba, the rural town's peace is shattered by a horrific murder that leaves no clues or suspects. As the lone incident develops into a series of bizarre crimes, he discovers that only he and his friends have the power to solve the baffling case, bring those responsible to justice, and restore harmony to his new home.

Key Features
• Balance your double life – Beyond intense battles, Persona fusion, and new weapon creation exists a normal high school life of friends, classes, and part-time jobs. The way you manage and integrate your activities within each day will determine how you progress through the game.
• Unprecedented team control – With a greater emphasis on developing bonds in the fight to solve the mysterious murders, strong friendships are key to your success. Directly control teammates in battle, earn greater party support for combat, and master individual Social Links to unlock your party's true potential.
• Find the true ending – 60+ hours of gameplay thrusts you into a deep mystery where midnight television leads to serial killings. You must investigate murders, rescue those who can be rescued, and unmask the culprit behind it all—or risk being forever shrouded in the fog of doubt.

Persona 4 has been rated “M” for Mature with Alcohol Reference, Animated Blood, Language, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, and Violence by the ESRB.

Just finished the game for the first time. Love the story and characters, but the dungeons get really frustrating at times. The gameplay itself is quite good, but some of the dungeons just feel too long.

After having finished P3 FES recently, I gotta say I still prefer this game. The gameplay is better and there are more things to do after you finish a dungeon, not to mention the pacing of the story is better. Granted, the ending of P3 is superior in every way, but P4 was just more fun to play overall.

Well, I really liked the story of this game, it was the strongest point for me. Maybe because I liked the atmosphere and I'm a sucker for mystery story sort of things. I haven't played P3 yet but I plan to, so I can't say which one is better for now.

It's a matter of taste, the story in this game wans't appealing to me and got bored of the story pretty fast (Dungeon 4) Also, i agree the characters are more realistic but I couldn't stand most of them. Persona 3 is more Shin megami tensei and the characters are more...interesting. Just my opinion here

MRKs, that's probably because, actually this game is better that P3 in every aspect (yes, including characters and story)
