I love the Shin Megami Tensei Persona series, was hoping that would be enough to overcome what it an aged game but unfortunately it wasn't. The 1st person dungeon crawling is horrendous, completely destroyed any chance of me enjoying the game. Sounds like a solid soundtrack from what i heard, but I recommend staying away from this RPG unless you played (and liked) Revelations. I'm into old school rpgs like lunar and early FFs, but this one isn't for me.
I recently played Persona 3 Portable on the PSP system. Loved it. Because of this I figured, "Hey, they have the first Persona on the PSP system too, maybe I should play it too."
Don't get me wrong, I think it was probably a great game in it's time, but the flow of combat, and the slow gameplay just turned me away from it. I just think that since they brought it to the PSP, they could have at least improved it some. The graphics aren't really that impressive and the combat music (while quite nice) doesn't really make me feel like I'm fighting a group of demons.
If you're a fan of the Persona series like me and you're willing to overlook the fact that this game is nigh on ancient, then go ahead and get it.
All-in-All I gave it a 3. But only because I think that the PSP version should be more revamped than what I had seen.
