This is a port of the PS2 game Persona 3. It contains everything from the original Persona 3 title (Not FES = No "The Answer" storyline) except the animated cut-scenes which are replaced with in-game graphics. It is an entertaining JRPG. The story will keep you hooked with its originality and plot twists. The characters personalities are standard of a JRPG but are likable and develop well over the game. The battling system is similar to many normal RPGs where they are turn based, various commands like attack and magic are used, and experience is gained to level up. The difference from a normal RPG would be in the Social Link system used. You meet and talk to NPCs and pick appropriate conversation choices throughout the game to raise your social link with them to upgrade your personas (similar to summons). A couple other changes from the original PS2 include easier travelling from place to place, you can control the other party members in battle, and some extra optional boss fights.You also have the opportunity to play as a female MC with different social links. Overall it is a great game to get for the PSP.
