Rated 10 out of 10 by persona3rocks Persona 3
Persona 3 is about a high school student that starts at a new school with a bit of a bad history. The main character starts at a new dorm but when he get off the train to go to the dorm late at night everything seems to stop people turn in to coffins. He later finds out that this period of time between midnight and next day is called the Dark Hour. He finds out that why he is awake during this time is because of a power he has within himself. Along with his new dorm mates that are all in the group the S.E.E.S. He learns that they all have this special power that not everyone else has. This special power within is call a Persona. Its like another self. Along with your dorm mates you must fight the battle with the monsters in the Dark Hour. These monsters are called Shadows. Shadows are able to fight and hurt other people in the Dark Hour while people are transformed into coffins. So thats why you must stop them before they destroy all of the city, and you and your dorm mates are the only ones that can do it!
Rated 10 out of 10 by DonkeyK0ng One word, AMAZING!
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 is one of the greatest games to own on a PS2. You live the life of a Highschool boy who has the power of the Persona. After loosing his parents, he is shipped off to go to school at Gekkoukan High, where he meets peculiar characters that say he has the "Potential." Battling Shadows and living with the Dark Hour is not what a normal teenage boy wants. The graphics are what you say, more than expected. They are no Final Fantasy graphics, but still, amazing. The art for the cutscenes, being anime, is what keeps me attached. The soundtrack is amazing, the battle music keeps me going through the long boss battles. The story line, and if i may express my feelings for the story line, is so messed up, its almost perfect for a game. The fact that you choose the destiny makes the game even more invigorating. The difficulty of this game varies. I love the battle system, I love the character development, I love the plot, I love everything. I would recommend this game to anyone and everyone!
Rated 0 out of 10 by Tony No Fes For Now
This isn't including Fes, it's been confirmed already (RPGFan, NeoGAF). Fes just came out last week in Japan, so soon before the US release of the main game that it's likely Atlus USA barely had a chance to work on a lot of it. Fes is well beyond most bonus content games come with. Maybe you'll get to visit an extra area or some new items will be added or you'll get some bonus character. Fes itself is practically the size of the main game and would require a LOT of work. Beyond which, it's being sold as a new game in Japan (if you get both Persona 3 and Fes packed together, it's not exactly cheap). Atlus USA would have to put a lot of work into it and it would be financially, well, stupid to pack them both together for $50. I suppose there's some hope that it might pop up as a separate release eventually, but what's really going to help determine that (more than anything I imagine) will be Persona 3 sales.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Serph I want it!!
Ive always like the MegaTen of the Atlus but all the other games they make are a waste of my money.. I loved the Avatar Tuner games and the first one I ever played was Nocturne i think? I also played devil summoner but never played the persona games tho. Ive been trying to get some on my ps1 emulator but i havent seen any so far. I hope this will be an awesome storyline. still i think that Avatar Tuner was the best game they ever made it was so fun to play too I wish they make another game about people turning into demons rather than people controlling demons...
Rated 0 out of 10 by doggfighter108 Looks Really Awesome!!
I've never played any of the previous Persona games (well I never even new they existed until now), but from the videos I've seen and articles I've read this game looks really freaking awesome. The story sounds interesting enough. The only thing that doesn't sound interesting is having to do school stuff during the day. I play games to get away from school not to do school stuff, but then again who knows might be more interest than it sounds. But anyway I can't wait to get this game. I'm definitely getting it when it comes out.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Cidsa It's so-so
I played the japanese version of Persona 3 and it's really inferior to the first 3 (especially both parts of Persona 2). In the game you are in school and during the day you spend time doing school stuff such as pop quizzes and at night you fight demons. The annoying part is that you only have so much time at night to do dungeons before your characters get tired and have to go home. It's not a bad game, but those looking for something just like the other Persona games might be disappointed.
Rated 0 out of 10 by platinumx good then, better now?
I've played the second Persona in the series and enjoyed the gameplay and everything as a whole, even though the graphics were something to be desired. I loved the fact that all the characters before could switch to any persona they wanted, and weren't just limited to one. The newest installment in the series will probably be pleasing, I just hope they didn't take out many of the elements that were exciting in the previous games.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Seraphim YES!!!
I can't wait for this one. I'm a huge fan of the Megaten series. Whats even better about this one is the depth of involvement you have with the story and characters. Plus, you have to juggle school (friendships, homework, etc.) and fighting baddies (leveling, fusing, missions) with a calendar thrown into the mix for events like christmas vacation and new years. I think I just drooled all over myself...
Rated 0 out of 10 by Jimmy!!! P3: Content
Heres hoping that they do what many other japanese translated games do... Include all the bonus content. Of course, a little while after P3 came out, they came out with P3: Fes, a suped-up version with 30 more hours of gameplay, 20 new persona, and more. They did it with Rogue Galaxy, Kingdom Hearts I and II, and Final Fantasy, why not do it to Persona? Everbody likes a little extra bang for there buck!

Atlus never fails to impress me with the MegaTen games and I can't wait to play this game. The battle system appears to be similar to previous MegaTen games and as always, the style and artwork are beautiful. If you haven't done so already, check out the various clips from the game on some of the gaming websites, whether they're in the original Japanese or English, they're pretty good stuff. I can't wait to play it!
