Persona 3 officially releases tomorrow and as such the reviews are starting to pour in. Here are the ones you can check out so far.

RPGFan - Damian Thomas's review and Ashton Liu's review.

Gamernode - Brian Lindsey's review.

GameAlmighty - Matt Butrovich's review.

Game Informer - Metacritic states GI gave the game an 8.5.

Play - Himuro informs us that Play gave the game a 9.5.


 RPGamer - Michael Beckett’s review.


I'll add more as time goes on, but for the most part it's safe to just watch Metacritic's page on the game.

Thanks. When I went to RPGamer it wasn't up yet. I think I'll just edit in the main post.

Pretty horrible review. It glazes with incoherency.

"If you break it down, the system isn’t much more than a name and/or aesthetic change from other RPGs that offer monster summoning and merging."

Can anyone point me to any other rpg series that lets you summon demons or fuse them together?

" Persona 3’s music is pleasurable, but the voice acting is this game’s best feature. The dialogue is entertaining and believable – you’ll begin to care about these characters within the first hour"

The voice acting is the game's best feature?

The voice acting for some of the main characters is admittedly very believable, particularly because it would have been easy to find people who just sounded too old. Some of it was offputting to me at first, such as Mitsuro, but you soon get used to it and it fits their personalities... I'm still not sure about Ikutsuki. But best feature, I don't know.

I think the main oddity of the battle system discussion in the GZ review is that there's no discussion of the press turn system even existing in the game at all. That alone separates it from FF and DQ, which he brings up in the review.

He doesn't seem to be fond of rpgs to begin with.

The EGM Reviews Podcast talks about Persona 3 and it sounds like the people at EGM really liked it (you'll have to fast forward to around 36 mins to listen to that part), it's a pretty funny podcast.

Whoa! HOT!! Some might say these are the most important of all reviews. And I think the game did very well.

I'm kind of glad to see some mentions of the loading times. They're not long, but they're incredibly frequent and sometimes for the smallest of things. It's unusual given the almost non-existent loading in SMT:N and DDS.

I'm can kind of understand IGN's spell confusion too. You really kind of need to get used to the series before Bufu just means "ice". It is weird that the Persona status screens don't give you this information... but it is actually very clear about what spells they will learn next, at least in earlier levels (it basically says the level and spell you'll learn on the side).

With Fusion the problem is, really, that a good portion of it is random. There are rules to it -- for example, healing based Persona cannot learn physical attacks (all of this is explained at the Velvet Room) -- and you can kind of work all of these together to figure out what might be carried over. I don't think it's that bad, myself.

I'm hoping that the strategy guide explains all of that, I didn't get so many good persona's in my playthrough for now, lol.

I personally lost a lot of trust for reviews. I'm going to rent it (If I can) and try it for myself.

I think the only way you'll be able to rent it is if you have Gamefly... I can't even remember the last time I saw an Atlus game elsewhere to rent. Probably because it's never happened lol.

I don't really understand a lot of it sometimes. Most of the time you can't even buy these games at even Best Buy... although it looks like they'll have Persona 3.

Yeah, with what I'm seeing, I think I'll go and get it.

You're right, I've never seen any SMTs at Blockbuster before. Even if Best Buy gets it, it'll probably be a small amount, so I'm going with Gamestop. Although I really wanted to try Persona 1 and 2 first and see how those were.

I love how 1 is going for 100 dollars on ebay:P.
