i'm not a huge RPG fan. i usualy get bored with the slow story pacing, the slow, repetative random battle systems, and the usualy one way ending. i don't know what attracted me to Persona 3 Portable, but i'm glad it did. this is an RPG made for me. the story is constantly advancing, with something new happening every day. not only that, but the ability to choose when you want to fight in just perfect. i can go into the place where all the enemys are, fight for a while, level up a few times, and get out, the constant battleing is eliminated and makes room for more story. and the abily to make friends/girlfriends from the people at your school adds to the whole school thing. it actualy kinda makes me want to live in the persona 3 world lol. but i digress. the battles dont usualy last long, aside from boss battles. my ONE complaint about it, is that practicaly everyone who can use a persona, almost automaticaly knows how to sumomn it (they have to shoot themselfs in the head. no joke) if they atleast explained why they have to do that, and told them how to do it, then i wouldn't have a problem. but either way, go to the closest game store to you and but this game. if they don't, then buy it online. you will NOT regret it.

i only played this game for pry about 4 or 5 hours so im not saying i know it all but from what i seen it is very very slow paced and its talk talk talk talk talk until your ears fall off and then read something else after that. some say an immersible storyline, i say a 5 hour one way conversation. if you like dating sims or whatever there called then go for it but if you just want to kill something look for something else, i mean for me once i FINALLY got to the battling, at first i thought this is kinda cool but after only 15 mins i found myself bored and questioning why i was playing this game. i could find no answer to this question so tomorrow the mail man shall have a new game. ;)
