This game was very up and down for me. There were moments when I loved it and moments where I was quite bored. It was hard to find things worth doing durring vacation times, but other than that it was very entertaining and kept you busy. This game lasted a VERY long time. It took me two weeks to complete it, spending several hours a day on it. The battles weren't too difficult, except for the last boss. Definately worth the time if you like story based rpg's and have patience.

This and Killer7 are my favorite games of all time, and both are cult classics which resulted in huge followings for the creative teams behind them. Persona 3 is a third person RPG. You are the new kid at school and you are moved from your regular dorm assignment because the building is full. You end up in a dorm with lots of empty rooms and 3 other students. Mysterious things begin to happen and you soon discover they are part of an elite monster hunting team that all have the power to use personas, which you discover you have as well. This game is great because it has so much to do and so many possibilities. In order to gain different personas, which help you to defeat monsters more easily, you have to build up corresponding social links in everyday life. This also makes for high replay value because there are over 170 combinations of personas that can be made, some which can only occur by accident or combining rare cards. Very long game, also has great voice acting, hilarious music and a visual style that was well before its time and still looks beautiful on an hdtv. A must play.
