Persona 3 Portable Review: An Aging Formula Revived By Improvements
13 July 2010
Conclusion: Concept: Update a respected 2007 game with a few important improvements
Graphics: Worse than they originally were, but not detrimental to the experience
Sound: The new music for the female protagonist fits right in with Persona 3’s catchy soundtrack
Playability: Gameplay tweaks heighten an already addictive premise
Entertainment: For those that enjoy Persona’s unique style, there’s 80+ hours of fun to be had
Summary: Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable is a great port of one of the best Japanese RPGs to come along in quite a while. Another 80 hours of Persona 3 may be a bit much for series veterans, but it's the perfect opportunity for those who never played -- or finished -- the original game.
Pros: One of the few quality PSP ports on the market, Female campaign is substantially different from the original, Still a unique, mechanically complex RPG
Cons: Your mileage will vary when it comes to the adventure game interface, Music isn't quite as catchy in the female campaign, Series veterans may find another 80 hours of Persona 3 to be a bit much
Excerpt: Let me start off the review with stating the obvious: many people will probably complain and bestow Persona 3 for the PSP (P3P) with the label of "cash-in." Naturally, this begs the question: did Atlus release a portable version of the game too soon after its release on the PS2? Especially considering fans were treated to an expansion, FES, about a year after its release, which is not included in the portable version, it's a valid concern.
Excerpt: Слухами земля полнится, и вымышленный мегаполис Сумару-сити где-то в Японии – не исключение. Ежедневно здесь пересказывают друг другу тысячи сплетен. Кому-то мерещатся привидения в школьном туалете, кто-то убежден, что хозяйка лапшичной на соседней улице – самая настоящая русская шпионка, пусть и бывшая, и приторговывает оружием. Кто-то строит конспирологические теории и ждет со дня на день пришествия инопланетян, о котором были в курсе еще древние майя.
