Even in today's gaming world. Persona stands out in just about every way possible. Great story, Unique battles and fun.

Shin Megami Tensei Persona is a remake now I can't compare it to Revelations: Persona due to the fact I never played the original. I know that a new quest was added where you fought the snow queen. I could have done without the poppish soundtrack, frankly I'm not a fan of Persona music period. despite those things that stand out Persona is indeed a game that a fan of RPG's should play. while its not like Persona 3 and 4 (I'm not saying thats a bad thing) when playing it would be best not to expect it to be. it does not have the social links but thats ok.

Even by today's standards of gaming and RPG's Persona still has enough elements to stand out, with its Unique story and artstyle. You take the role of the unnamed protaganist who is an ordinary highschool student. Him and his friends began to play what is known as the Persona game. soon after Demon's attack there city the only clues they have is company named SEBEC is behind it. Things go crazy and are not as they appear what really is the true behind this unseen demon attack.

Another uniqe element the game has is its battle system, many complain that remakes battle systems are out-dated but Persona is still as unique today as it was back in 96. for beginers your characters can only attack certian squares different spells have different range if your character cannot reach that square then they can't use that move. rather than doing social links like in the later games, you obtain spell cards by talking to demons in battle, you can make them anger, happy, scared or eager but one wrong move could send you into alot of trouble. You can also talk your way's out of battle.

I became a fan off of Persona 3 and Persona 4 is my favorite. those who love Persona 3 and 4 for the social link aspect should give it a try but its not like them at all. I would recommend this game to people who like RPG's as a fan of Persona its totally worth it but I'd recommend playing it for an RPG fans rather than Persona 3 and 4 fans. A game worthy even in todays world. 8.5/10
