Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3

ztgd.com
22 January 2011
  • Excerpt: No spikey haired hero? No androgynous main character? No crystals to retrieve?
  • Pros: + 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
  • Cons: 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 PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Whereas the original Shin Megami Tensei series is largely all darkness and misery, the spin-off series Persona, is Shin Megami on anti depressants that aren’t functioning correctly, so to speak. With its light-hearted sense of humour and enthusiastic J-pop soundtrack it’s certainly more jolly and upbeat, but still has its demons (in the true sense of the word) and darkness, and this time plenty of shooting in the head.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 was a brilliant and compulsive mixture of demon slaying, treasure seeking and light socializing elements. Persona 3: FES is a nicely refined version of that game, but there’s more here too. Whereas the original Shin Megami Tensei series is largely all darkness and misery, the spin-off series Persona, is Shin Megami on anti depressants that aren’t functioning correctly, so to speak.

Persona 3 Adds Up

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: One of the most unique and difficult to describe RPGs of the last few years is Atlus's Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 . The idea of a high school life simulation mixed with dungeon crawling combat may be more than some people can fathom, but the end result is an addictive, solid PlayStation 2 RPG.

Knocking on Heaven's Door

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: When Persona 3 was originally announced in Japan, the game was looking very interesting and seemed to have a terrific style to it. When the game was announced for North America, it was expected that Atlus would add the Shin Megami Tensei supertitle, though the sound of the game's difficulty left a bad feeling. It didn't take long to warm up to the game's atmosphere and before long the game was spinning in the PlayStation 2.

The Game of Life - Now With Demons!

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: What was going through the minds of the designers as they imagined Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 can only be speculated upon, but the results cannot be argued with. The combination of a traditional dungeon-crawler RPG with a dating simulator is probably the most bizarre genre cross-over in existence, and yet it works exceedingly well on almost every level.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3

Game Over Online
14 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Persona 3 makes me think about cycles. Back when the console RPG was just starting out, with games like Dragon Warrior , Final Fantasy , and the NES port of Wizardry , the games were mostly grindfests. You walked in circles around Corneria for three hours collecting money and experience so you could survive the walk to the next town over, where you would need to spend another three hours running in circles before you could move on.

Test Shin Megami Tensei Persona 3

Generation NT
9 July 2008
  • Pros: Un concept de base diablement original., Une difficulté homogène., Une aura esthétique et sonore indéniable., Une durée de vie conséquente.
  • Cons: Le mode 50Htz qui « tue » la dynamique du jeu initial., Un doublage américain en adéquation avec l'ambiance., Le côté répétitif de la progression.
