Summary: There are certain games that reach a level of popularity to the point that video game companies put out endless remakes and ports for various reasons, such as making improvements to the gameplay and presentation, or just make more money. Among the recipients of this treatment is Atlus's Persona 3, originally for the PlayStation 2, which first saw a special edition that added an extra game-length scenario, and more recently has seen a port to the PlayStation Portable...
An excellent portable version of a punishing time sink that will appeal most to existing fans of the Megami Tensei series

Summary: The story and characters are great and the world is as imaginative and deliciously dark as always. Unfortunately, so are mudo, hama and a save system so broken that you'll be in tears by the 30 hour mark. The Good: -It's an excellent port that reduced graphical quality minimally and simplifies the relationship system a bit more than the fun, more graphically intense, but overwhelming open exploration down-time areas in the PS2 version.
Female Perspective Refreshing, if a Little Unpolished

Summary: I really enjoyed the addition of a female protagonist in this revamped version of Persona 3. While there were a few bugs/inconsistencies along the way that made it feel a tad unpolished that is something you would expect when adding a large amount of new "routes" in the life simulation aspect of the game. The female protagonist's warmer personality is a welcome change over the original.
Summary: I have been a long time fan of the Persona series for years and have been very excited to get my hands on the Persona 3 Portable. The Addition of a Female Protaganist with it's own unique Social Links was a huge appeal for me. I had sunk easily 130+ Hours into the original game, so the addition of this new angle was very refreshing.
Summary: I heard so many good things about this game series, so I finally decided to try it. This was the first time I have played any Persona game. I was not disappointed! Though not the genre I usually prefer, this game is set in a modern high school with seemingly accurate portrayals about Gods and Demons. It feels like there is a time limit, but really- you get more than enough time to do everything in the game- and it's a very long game.
Summary: Having played Persona 3 FES beforehand, I was very excited to learn that it would be available in a PSP format with new content. The game is excellent and very addicting, just as you would expect from the Persona franchise, and I must say that overall I do not regret my purchase and that this game has a high replay value.
Summary: It's surprising how much they were able to fit into this game. It's basically the entire P3 game - including a separate story for a female lead. The only down side is - the PS2 version is the way you should play this game with it being fully voiced (this game seems to be voiced at about 95%), and it's more interactive than the portable version.
Overall from this game was good and pleasant to play

Excerpt: This game was the persona second game available for Play Station Portable. It relese in 2009 after the release of Persona 1 game for PSP. Now i'll tell you about everything about the game. Graphic: In my opinion the graphic was good overall was 8/10. because it has similar graphic with the former P3 game in PS2 console Gameplay: This game has similar gameplay with the previous P3 game, but this game using visual novel style in everyday activity of the main character.
Pros: "The RPG system easily to understand", "The five additional persona exclusive in P3P only", "Player can Choose to play with male or female character", "Some additional feature that do not attached in previous P3 game", "The graphic was awesome"
Cons: "It using visual novel style in gameplay (not in battle)"
Summary: This is a fun game, make no mistake about it, but it's also somewhat disturbing. What else can you say about a game that has the characters repeatedly put objects that look like guns to their head? The themes of suicide and self-sacrifice run heavily through this game. The battle/dungeon crawl is challenging enough that you'll probably die a few times, but not so bad that you should find yourself unable to progress the story.
Summary: Before I write this, I would like to give an honest suggestion that people only buy this if they don't have a PS2, or if they want play as a female main character, if you don't want to do either of these things look at the Persona 3 Fes game on the PS2 and never come back. Basically because the UMD(PSP Media format) can not hold as much data as a DVD(The format the PS2 uses), Atlus Japan have ripped out every bit of 3D from the game except for when you're in Tartarus.
