description

One of the most critically-acclaimed roleplaying franchises of all time, Shin Megami Tensei has recently arose to prominence in North America with the releases of Persona 3 and 4, two of the highest-rated releases in their respective years. Now, Atlus revisits the first chapter in the Persona saga on PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system. Completely rebalanced and remade, SMT: Persona allows younger fans of the series to find out what everyone’s been talking about for years, and gives long-time SMT supporters a wholly different take on an all-time classic.

Each and every launch copy of SMT: Persona will include the game’s full soundtrack—on 2 CDs—bundled with the game in a premium boxed set. This definitive version of the game will be impossible to resist for series fans! Only as long as supplies last!

Worthy Remake
Been a fan of the Persona series from the start - this remake really is the definitive version - perfect for the PSP platform. Enjoyable story, with many hours of gameplay... Very much enjoyed - great game all-round. And at this price, who could say no? Highly recommended to J-RPG fans.

PSP Persona Throwback
Persona is a turn-based RPG in the Shin Megami Tensei Series. Having never played the original Playstation release, I cannot make any comparisons between the two games, so my opinion is based off of the PSP release only.

Persona is a worthwhile game that can be very entertaining and challenging. Initially, it can seem a little slow. It is one of those RPGs that may take a few hours to actually get into, but once you get accustomed to everything, it is more enjoyable.

The battles are random encounter and are turn based. You move through dungeons in first person and fight along the way. There are also rooms you will find throughout the dungeon, and the camera will change to a more standard angled-3rd person view, where exploration is possible.

Visually, Persona is a good-looking game, but has its flaws, probably due to its age. The world map the user navigates is detailed and is very pleasing to the eye. The dungeons are nice looking, but a little repetitive. The exploration scenes are also nice, but a little dull in terms of color. As for the character sprites, they seem a little lifeless, but its easy to come to terms with it considering it is originally a Playstation release.

The sound design is alright. The characters make simple battle shouts during fight scenes, and there is always upbeat music playing during these. Some may like the music and some may not, but I get the feeling it is a stylistic choice, rather than just adding different instrumental pieces that fit the mood of the battles and cutscenes.

Persona has its strength and weaknesses just like any other game. It's just that they may tend to stand out more when compared to more recent games. If you feel you can look past these, then Persona can definitely be a highly enjoyable game.
