Summary: Strangely, the Persona creature card system is like a dark version of pokemon in that you collect tarot cards which have certain powers and you have to level up to gain more skills in those creature cards. It is quite fun. I would not let a child play this game.
Pros: It's a modern set rpg with many plot twists. Beautiful animated cut scenes. The interface and the character design on both the heros and enemies is sleek. The voice acting can be pretty amusing as well. The storyline is interesting and makes you want to play the game until the end.
Cons: Your character is restricted to what he can do in a day's time. So if you looking for a game which has hardly any limits, this isn't it. Then again, the game follows a calendar schedule. The battle levels can get tedious. The second game,The Answer, is very difficult. It basically takes out the f...
Summary: Personally, I had never heard of the Persona series, nor had I really played any JRPGs, until a few friends introduced me. What I found was an expansive, engaging and, yes, challenging game, which cruelly punishes you for simultaneously being a non-Japanese person and a non-Japanese high school...
Summary: Such a good surprise. I have never finished the game because I lost it somewhere but the concept is simply great. Design, music, characters, setting, story, all is coming nicely together to give a new direction to RPG and gaming in general.

I wish school had been this fun for real, ok maybe no shadows though.

Summary: I missed Persona 3 when it first came out and I had kept hearing about it but was never willing to dish out the $100+ that it was being sold for. So when FES came out I preordered it and said for $30 what the heck I'll try it out.

Summary: having purchased persona4 and enjoyed it immensely i decided to give its forerunner a whizz. i wasn't disappointed. although the humour of the game was not as intense as p4, it is still a very enjoyable romp through explore/bash/improve/build relationships.
Summary: Well here's a new one on me...RPG meets The Sims. Well not quite but it does mix RPG mechanics with a very heavy element of keeping up your social networking. The story of Persona 3 sees you as a young male student, new in town and joining a new school.
