IGN: Shin Megami Tensei: Persona Review

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona isn't quite a remake and it's certainly not a straight port. It is, easily, the best version the States have seen of the classic, but one really does need to head into things realizing this is the original game with a fresh coat of paint rather than a complete overhaul of the innards. The changes are welcome, certainly – especially compared to the original PS one version – but those that have gotten exposed to the series with the last two games may be turned off by the high encounter rate and archaic visuals. Still, if you can look past the game's more dated elements, you'll find a compelling story and wonderfully original takes on classic dungeon crawling mechanics. Just make sure you learn to love the grind first.

I can't wait to play this game and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey.

I love Atlus.
