Rated 10 out of 10 by Nameless My Favorite Game Of All Time
Persona 3 FES is an expansion pack to the original Persona 3 with added quests, Personas, a new HARD mode, and a 30+ hour All-New chapter. Personally out of all the RPGs I have ever played, Persona 3 was the best. I liked it even more the FFX and FFXII. My new favorite game is now Persona 3 FES, it's much better than the original, it’s almost like a completely new game. It’s fantastic that you get to change the outfits of your fellow persona users; I find my self chuckling at the revealing clothes that some of the female users wore. Persona 3 FES is a must buy for fans of the first game. I would even recommend this game to RPG lovers and people who are just starting to get into the RPG scene. All in all this game is the perfect RPG to get, but it might be a little too much for the younger crowd. Lol I put all the last few sentences as extra because I don’t have the minimum number of characters. People just get the game and you'll experience the RPG that’s taken the USA by storm.
Rated 10 out of 10 by taco10 Best game ever. Hands down.
Shin megami Tensei Persona 3 is not a game but an experience. To start of with the opening is amazing with a J-rock theme and a nice anome cutscene. The graphics are average for a PS2 but frequent anime cutscences add to it. The combat consist of turnes based supporting up to 4 characters who can summon their demons to fight of the other demons villans etc. Players are rewarded at the ends of battles with a lottery like way of earning demons and power-ups to help in combat. Players have a wide range of demons associated from different religions,mythology and supernatural themes which adds a atmosphere like no other game can offer. The story line is vivid with many twist and turns. It mixes horror,action,thriller and romance for a unique experience. The story consist of going to school in the day,socializing with friends and even dating and getting a job. At night you fight demons in the Dark Hour. It works as a fusion between a simulation/SRPG for a creative spin. If your a hardcore gamer I would absolutely recommended this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by some guy that loves this game. I love this game.
Persona 3 was an underrated game an was very good. More people need to play this game seriously this is my favorite game. the graphics are cool and characters have a cool anime like avatar. It will keep you playing nonstop although some music gets repetitive it tends to grow on you. You also get four new tracks for Tartaros which gives Tartaros more replay value. The controls are easy to get used to which makes it better to go and do challenges and quests you get. You can create and fuse your Personas' to make better and stronger Personas'. But what I really loved about Persona was the story it's just so touching. The voice actors were great I really loved everyones' voice it really matched the characters personality. I just wish more people would get this game to see how great it is. If you already own Persona 3 but don't have FES you must get it adds so much replay value you'll almost see everything better and upgraded than the original and you also get the sequel to P3 called the answer which features the characters after P3.

K this isn't much different from Persona 3 cause it is Persona 3. This is just the same game but with some add-ons. For starters if u finished Persona 3 the endind didn't feel complete (not a spoiler) then you need this game cause yes it's the same game BUT after the last fight the story continues. This gives you about 30 hours more game play. You get more Personas for use & as if this game wasn't hard already, a harder difficulty. Persona 3 is kinda hard to find now so if you missed it the first time then pick this one up cause its $20 less & more content. As for me, I'm still getting Persona 3 even though I still have the original. This is a great series & hardcore & old school RPG gamers really stand by Shin Megami Tense. Trust me if you want Persona 3 FES reserve it & get it quick cause in like 2 months you might not be able to find it except on ebay for 3 or 5 times the original price.

This game has defiantly been re-mastered. I have the Original special edition and now that version is no longer special. The new content in this version is great. This is a must buy for all RPG gamers and a buy and try for all non RPG gamers. If you have never tried any of the Shin Megami series this version of Persona 3 is the perfect one to start with. You will only come back for other Shin Megami games. I played through the first version and was disappointed with the ending in a way. Now only to play through this one and see the new ending and how the story continues is the best part. There are so many differences for those of you who have played the first version that it is more than worth the price to get this version. I will recommend this to any who are fans of the series and to those who have never played any other of the Shin Megami series.

Persona 3 FES , is an outstanding game. As this is an add-on to the original Persona 3 with extra content, that makes it even better than the original. Some say that the soundtrack on this game is awesome. I agree to a certain extent. The music for this game is unique but still nothing special. As for game play, it's a cool idea the way you work around a calender and time zone, almost like you're living another life, learning about Japanese culture on the way. The story is pretty good too, humorous but serious at the same time. The battle system is simple but reliable so it's not too hard to learn. There are many personas to gain and master their abilities. Add everything together here and you've got the makings of one of the best rpg's of all time. In my opinion it falls in the top 10. Anyway, a must buy for any rpg fan out there.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Nyx Avatar Even if you own the UBER-RARE original...
Even if you own the now out of print original SMT: P3 and have conquered it entirely, get this! If you already have saved/completion data on your card/hd (for ps3) you'll be able to carry it all over into the now available, HARD MODE. Which adds an extra challenge to the original game. Furthermore, "Episode: Aegis" is now available, stateside. Brand new story, brand new lead character. So to sum it all up, all in all even if you have the original discontinued P3, get this one as well. And own the entire rare set! It's got extra stuff added to the original game (it's been revamped somewhat), and ofcourse, the Aegis prologue story will be worth seeing how the characters handled their futures after the "true" ending of the original game. =] Reserve this now! Def. worth it, even if you're new to P3.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Matthias The RPG everyone should own
Persona 3 FES is the best rpg for ps2 at this time. The storyline is top notch, the fighting mechanics are fantastic and the mini quests are fun. There is definitely well over 60 hours of gameplay. It's a little overwhelming at first, because you want to do everything and just like the real world, there aren't enough hours in the day. Doing Elizabeth's requests will help you greatly and is the only way to unlock certain powerful personas. Since games are getting expensive, this game is a steal. The storyline is dark, but not emo. All the characters are individuals, not cookie cut outs. The personalities are all unique. The soundtrack is very cool and the final boss music is so good, I have it on my ipod. This game is deep on all levels and I hope they turn this game into a movie!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Ryoji Back and better than before
When I think of Persona 3 I remember a great storyline, memorable characters, powerful enemies, going to school, summoning my persona(s) and trekking up over 200 floors of Tartarus while listening to some of the greatest in game music I've heard in a long time. But now that FES is here, it's like rediscovering the magic of persona 3 all over again. More action, more music, more personas, more quests and changeable costumes while bringing 30 extra hours of gameplay with episode Aigis. It's like rebuying persona and a bonus game but now it's only $**! FES is a definitely a welcomed remake of 2007 greatest rpg. This game will be perfect for those who've played the old and have yet to play it at all. So pick it up, after all midnight's just around the corner.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Rane Definately and unsung jewel of a game
This game is a new twist on older themes. The storyline is one of the best I've ever seen and the originality caused by the "twist" I mentioned makes it a must have for any serious rpg fan. I quickly became curious about the main character and the battle system is easy and intuitive. The social system it has integrated with your character to contol your abilities was a stroke of genius. The graphics are nice and I have no complaints about the length of the game. The music is catchy, although I could've used a bit more variety but all in all it's the storyline that will pull you in and keep you glued to find out what happens next. The bosses are interesting and most of them a pretty well thought out. I highly recommend giving this one a try.
