Persona 3, Persona 3 FES, Persona 3 Portable… There are, fittingly, three different versions of Persona 3, but not all of them were made equal, and, unfortunately, Atlus decided to remaster potentially the weakest port of this fantastic game. I know I’ve started this review on a low note, but read on to find out why I still think this title is worth picking up and how it may make you shed a tear or two.
Let me start by giving you a quick rundown of the story and gameplay. Don’t worry, I’m gonna stay spoiler free so you can go into this title fresh-faced and bushy-tailed. From the get-go you can choose to play as either a male or female protagonist, this is exclusive to P3P and is also the only time in any Persona game where you play as a girl. I’ve completed P3P once before on the PS Vita and chose the female MC (main character), so I decided to choose her again to have a good comparison between the older version and this remaster.
