    If you are an RPG fan and own a PS2, then Persona 3 is a must play game.

    Story: 10/10 The story of Persona 3 is without a doubt, one of the best stories you'll always remember. The game is divided into two halves, the first is the normal school life, you meet friend...

    If there has ever been a reason why the PS2 is worth keeping, this is it!

    Rated on September 03, 2009 by Phillia_1821

    RPG's in general, whether they are JRPGs, MMORPG or even Tactical RPG's, seem to suffer from similar problems; the battle system isn't as malleable as first anticipated, the story is too formulaic or ...

    Macabre subtlety, perfect blend of simulation and RPG, and an originality only found in a Shin Megami Tensei game.

    To SEES or not to SEES… Do me a favor. Stay up until midnight tonight. At 12:00, watch the clock. Watch it closely, and, 60 seconds later, when it turns 12:01, ask yourself, "Did 1 minute really go...

    Classic RPG elements mixed with innovations rarely seen in the English gaming world make this a must for any RPG fans.

    Wonderfully executed, storyline that keeps you interested, and waaaaaaaay too much grinding for levels and money.

    Rated on April 28, 2008 by Amadeus_451

    The game was wonderful, except for one gleaming blight on the gameplay. The story has twists and turns but kept me wanting to see what was coming next rather than annoying me. The blending of classi...

    Before I begin, I would like to note that I am reviewing this game without any knowledge of any of the extras in the recent expansion pack, FES. I will do a review of FES after I receive it and play t...

    It's fun, it's time consuming, and it drags on and on and on... and on.

    Generally, I found Persona 3 to be entertaining. More specifically, GAMEPLAY: Interesting. The game is split up by the normal day, and the Dark Hour. During the day, one's main focus is to leve...
