NEW features

-Several new popular persona
-new social links
-Hard difficulty
-Weapon Fusion- using persona-.. kind of like Devil summoner
-More requests added
-character customes

things i noticed..

-the character is faster now, so he can get around pretty quickly (you will see when you play the game)

-slightly better loading time

-and lastly, early access to the velvet room (i can't quite remember but i think.. they did have acess until you enter tartarus in person 3)

YES, you can use the saved file from persona 3 in this game.. things that will be transfer over are

-Registered persona (so be sure to register your personas)
-known fustion spells
-Academics, charm and courage rankings
-Items gained from Social Links that reached Max.

FES offered two paths

-the journey (the exact story just like persona 3 with upgrades if you have the saved file)

-the answer (the 15 hours or so gameplay time as mentioned before the game release.

it's practically the same game with some extras added that's all.. worth a rental.. but not a purchase.. unless you do not own Persona 3.. or if you have the money for it.

This is a game every RPG fan holds dear to their heart. With a multitude of rich playable and non-playable characters and beautiful game art, any design or art fan would be into this game as well. The customization available for characters is also really impressive. You get to do so much and really wrap yourself around the life you lead as a character in this town that you never really get sick of playing.

For me, this is on my top 3 list of best RPGs for the Playstation2 console.

Persona is one of those games you either love or hate. I still own the original Persona and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment for the Playstation, so obviously I fall into the "love it" category. That being said, I enjoyed the first Persona over the second, so I wasn't sure what the third game would bring.

First, the story line is fantastic, and keeps you wanting to play. Secondly, there are multiple paths you can pursue to try to strengthen your character. So many that you can't possibly do them all the first time through. Third, the animation is a huge jump over the previous two installment, with some nice anime segments thrown in as well.

A few minor complaints do knock off the 1 point from me giving this game a 10. First, the music gets quite irritating after a while. Very minor, but...ehh. Second, your fighting consists mainly of scaling an ever-changing tower, repeatedly. That gets a little old. The first 2 personas did a good job of switching locales. Only the fun fighting system prevents this from being more of a downer. Lastly, I miss not being able to throw in random objects when fusing personae. I liked this feature in prior Persona games, where you could only unlock certain persona by throwing in a certain item during creation. I think they streamlined the process in the third game.

All in all, if you liked previous persona games or if you like turn-based RPGs, or even if you are a fan of collection/fighting games like Poke`mon, you need to try this game. Just bear in mind it is "M" rated, so it isn't cute Poke`mon collecting, but collecting demons to stop people from getting their souls sucked out. Enjoy.
