Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES (PlayStation 2)


Memento Mori. That Latin phrase can be translated a few different ways, but the best version goes thusly: Remember that you are mortal. Those ancient words cross the screen during Persona 3: FES's introduction cinematic, and they set a properly mature...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 (PlayStation 2)


The PlayStation 2 may have reached its twilight years, but there is no shortage of great games being released for it. Enter Persona 3, the latest in the Shin Megami Tensei series to reach American shores. Luckily, you won't need any previous experience...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3


Persona 3 makes me think about cycles.

Persona 3 is, despite that complaint, one of the best RPGs on the PS2, and in fact, on any console. It has characters you'll care about, a combat system that's easy to get into but hard to master, enough of a difficulty curve that you'll feel like...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3


No spikey haired hero? No androgynous main character? No crystals to retrieve? No mind numbing fetchquests? Why it must be the latest in the Shin Megami Tensei series! Persona 3???...

It’s Shin Megami Tensei, and doesn’t disappoint ; The Social Links System ; Original Story ; Original Presentation, and for an RPG that’s saying something ; Musical Score

Couldn’t find any here folks. I could say the Tartarus is a bit Blah, but that’s just being Nit Picky

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES


A fantastic reload of one of the best JRPGs.

Tons of new content; save+ system; fantastic value; wonderful story

Aegis doesn't date; still no advanced combat option

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES


Go to class, battle evil and try to get dates - Persona's a great combo, but is it worth the update?

A lot more of the same great game ; Getting the true ending ; Even deeper Persona customization

The soundtrack is embarrassing ; Same repetitive dungeon elements ; Too deep into the JRPG niche for some

It's too bad that there are a couple of aspects of the FES that could keep some gamers from giving it a chance. It's easy to get an earful of J-pop, buy flowers for a videogame girl to literally get the relationship to level 4 and decide that this game...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3


I'm going on record right off the bat as having never played a Persona title, or even a Shin Megami Tensei game. I won't compare Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 to past iterations in the series. I can only judge it as an RPG against other RPGs. What I...

Persona 3 isn't perfect. For all its unique gameplay features and how well its made, it isn't anything that new. It combines things in a new way, but nothing here hasn't been done before many times. Plus, some problems with the battle system do annoy...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3


As you can see, the game is very unique and pretty darn involved; it’s obvious this is an Atlus creation. Our only problem lies with Tartarus – couldn’t we at least have had different towers or magically different worlds within the tower, or...

Shin Megami Tensei Persona 3


It starts out with a disturbing cut-scene that bounds between a strange fellow on a train with his MP3 player blaring in his ear and a scared, trembling girl sitting on the floor of her room, holding a gun to her head and pulling the trigger. The game...
