If you like the SMT series
Half roguelike dungeon and half school simulation with dating sim elements, the game is a truly odd but addicting experience. Anyone familiar with the Shin Megami Series will notice the psychological and demonic themes central to the plot and gameplay. The demon compendium, fusing and capturing from previous MegaTen games makes a reappearance in this game but demons are referred to as Personas and can be won after battles through a mini card shuffle game rather than through negotiation as in SMT Nocturne. Be advised though that the game has a tendency to be repetitive as there is technically only one dungeon with randomly generated floors and if you don't like quirky pop/techno music your screwed cause that is the whole soundtrack, don't put it on mute though as there are some examples of great voice acting in there. Another issue is that you can't control the other characters directly in battle and this causes some problems as the dungeon requires a lot of time and if your main character dies the game ends regardless of your team mates health, thankfully the difficulty curve is much gentler than SMT Nocturne and the battle AI for your allies isn't stupid. You will also learn more strategic commands over the course of the game to fine tune their fighting behaviors. Overall most will like it, some will loath it and if your a fan of the Shin Megami Series you'll probably want to have children with it.
Persona 3; Best rpg of it's release year
The game lets you take the role of the protagonist whom you name to your liking, Taking place in a cross between a social simulator, making friends and working for money and to gain charisma, courage, and brains. it also has elements of monster breeding, as you mix new personas to make new, undiscovered, and previously un seen personas. The game has a very intense and emotionally engaging storyline. Men and women will enjoy this game. Husbands and wives will vie for time at the console. In short, it is a very good value, with excellent music, animation quality, and amazing cutscenes.
Excellent rpg- deep, well done and high school oriented!
I'm only about 4 hours into the game but have been quite impressed so far. Originally I bought Mirage Sessions FE for the Wii U, but can't play it now. So I turned to the next best thing: PS 2 Persona games... and they definitely dont disappoint! A band of high school kids fight demons at night time, and during the day you go to school... do Student Council and extracirricular clubs, build friendships that make your demon summons stronger and a lot more! Theres almost too much to do in one day of the game before your wore out!... but then you have to fight in the dark hour and become stronger... find out why the shadows are invading people.
Verified purchase: No
A worthy addition to the Shin Megami Tensei series!
Game's Premise: As it turns out there is an extra hour in every day. This hour is hidden between 12 AM and 1 AM... the 'dark hour'. Normal people aren't aware of this hour because they turn into coffins. Only those with 'special powers' are able to remain in their human form and aware during this hour. Some of those people can also summon an alternative forms of themselves. This form is like your inner mask, it is made from the stimulations that you receive from the world around you. The connections that you build with different people influences your inner persona. Pros: The story is very well written and intriguing. The monsters in the game are very creatively done. Some of these monsters were taken straight from the other Shin Megami Tensei games.... yea I'm looking at you Jack Frost. Than again there is an overwhelming amount of new monsters here too. The game has voice acting for most of the dialogue! Random encounters have been updated, now you are able to see your enemies and avoid them if you wish. The battles have a nice flow to them and are both quick and decisive. Persona 3 is a very meaty RPG with a lot of content. The normal school life is balanced well with the super natural. You can join a club, make few friends. The choices that you make early on will effect your game at later point. This gives the game a huge replay value. The game has a distinct anime flavor. In fact all in-game cutscenes are hand drawn anime! The anime's quality is excellent, however, and it does not disappoint. The game is teeming with bonus content waiting to be unlocked. Cons: The in game graphics will not blow anyone away. While the environment are fully rendered in 3D, but they look blend. The character models don't have as many polygons as in some of the other titles in the series. The gameplay can get repetitive at times. Also, the anime look and feel of the game may not be for everyone. Bottom Line: If you are a Shin Megami Tensei fan, or a fan of Adult RPGs than you already own this title and don't need to bother reading this. If you are new to the series and you like Jap. anime this game will appeal to you as well. I am enjoying this game a lot, it is a good step above Devil Summoner (the previous entry in the series).
Amazing gameplay and art
Honestly this is the First in the PERSONA series I have played! The art in this game is just really intriguing and good! The game is pretty interesting it's sort of a SIM as well. You have to keep your character in a "great" condition by using restroom or what not and you get to socialize and form friendships with other characters which is an important role in the game. You even get to date a couple characters which is highly amusing. You choose your own responses and choices throughout the game. There are a WIDE variety of Personas to create and use for your battles. I honestly don't have any dislikes in this game. I am going to play Persona 3 FES next because of how much I loved this game. It really captivated me from the beginning and trust me it's been a long while since I wanted to play through a whole game and complete it! Couldn't get enough of it ;] The game is also interesting in how it incorporated Arcanas, if you know anything about tarots ~ Definately a must try for an rpg gamer! I also loved how the characters curse. haha it's a very realistic game in how the characters socialize and respond.
