(PlayStation Portable Review) Shin Megami Tensei: Persona
The Entertainment Depot
2 April 2014
Summary: Shin Megami Tensei: Persona , despite its increase in popularity, remains a title with niche appeal. While I certainly enjoyed my time with it, there are many that will be turned off by a number of items, be it the dated graphics, revamped soundtrack, aged mechanics, or high encounter rate.
Excerpt: And I thought my school was hell! Coming this September from our friends at Atlus is the faithfully retelling of the PSOne classic that started a phenomenon, Shin Megami Tensei Persona. Persona is one of those games that draws the player into a story of teenage aguish along side with the end of the world. Most RPGs take place in a fantasy setting; however Persona is different in that it takes place in the modern world of Japan.
Excerpt: I'm a huge, crazed, biased Shin Megami Tensei fan. Nocturne is my favorite PS2 game, and singlehandedly drew my attention to Atlus as a development studio. The company has deservedly obtained hundreds of my dollars as a result, and I've pre-ordered every Shin Megami Tensei spinoff that has come stateside since. I even went back and bought Persona 2: Eternal Punishment because I couldn't get enough of the series.
Summary: If you didn’t get the chance to play Revelations: Persona when it first hit US shores, this would be the version to pick up. Even those who did play the PSX version may still find it worthwhile to pick up this version, even if only for the chance to play through the Snow Queen Quest. While it’s still an enjoyable game in its own right, it’s not the best in the series and might feel somewhat dated next to the later entries in the Persona series.
Excerpt: As mentioned in my preview a week or so back, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 was likely many current fan's first experience with the series. After the success of that title and its sequel, Atlus is giving these newcomers the chance to experience the first game in the series with the PSP remake - or should I say refurb - of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona . In my preview, I also promised to get back to you on whether or not I grew to like the game's visuals.
