    Texture model, cutscene and audio quality are the same as PS4. Loading times are quick and I have not encountered any bugs or crashing.

Good writing and characters, plenty of activities to do. Combat is very stylish and responsive. Expand

    Persona 5 is one of the best video games of the year. Aside from a few graphical nitpicks, there isn't a difference between the PS3 and PS4Persona 5 is one of the best video games of the year. Aside from a few graphical nitpicks, there isn't a difference between the PS3 and PS4 versions except that the latter has a special edition. In any case, Persona 5 is a great send off of sorts for PS3 gamers that haven't moved on. It's a near perfect game that you will pour 100 or more hours into. The battles are great fun and the palaces are puzzle-laden challenges. If you have any interest in JRPGs whatsoever, be sure to pick up this game. Expand

    Amazingly crafted - great visuals, "flowy" visuals (you've never seen a game this stylish before!) great soundtrack, great story. It's evenAmazingly crafted - great visuals, "flowy" visuals (you've never seen a game this stylish before!) great soundtrack, great story. It's even got the re-playability angle, and after ~100 hours to beat it the first time, you'll still want to go back to get to the bottom of the story with some of your confidants. A rare achievement in software, a stunning masterpiece. Expand

Visual, music and story. it's one of the last game on PS3. i played lot of shin megami tensei, this one is very good. And about the difficultie, if you buy a messiah at lvl 90 at the begining, it will be easier. Expand

    Persona 5
    A Bit Over Rated
    Everyone on the internet talks about Persona 5 like it’s the greatest thing to ever hit consoles..
    and while this is a great game.. don’t quite believe the hype..
    In Persona 5 you play a highschool stuident that gets framed for assult when he defends a woman from an abusive man, hes on probation and under watch while he attends highschool…
    youre the new kid in school with a bad boy reputation… here you meet some friends that are dealing with a horribly abusive gym teacher…
    and coincidentally enough you find a strange app on your phone and it takes you to some crazy castle that you learn is actually how this teacher perceives the school.
    youre in his palace… this palace is crawling with creatures known as shadows that keep its treasure guarded..
    that treasure being the targets heart..
    youre here to change it and make them confess their wrong doings..
    there are 8 palaces total in this game if you count mementos which is a grinding area that you can eventually visit any time…
    and as you progress the game new members will slowly join your party
    each of you has your own persona which is basically like a pokemon…
    you have to make your way through these maze like palaces in search for your treasure and not get caught by these shadows..
    if your meter reaches 100% and your target is aware of your presense its game over.. so its important to stealth around and attack from behind.. especially at the risk of losing hours of progress as the dungeons can be multiple hours long
    but there are save rooms in these dungeons just incase that you can fast travel to and from if you need a break or need to head back to the real world and stock up on more items…
    and again like pokemon this is turn based and each persona has strengths, weaknesses, and special moves you can use during battle that they learn as you level up..
    and your main character can even catch these shadows if you hit them with a weakness or weaken them to a point that they give up.. you then have to talk to them and tell them what they want to hear to remind them that they are personas as well…
    you can then take your captured personas and use them in battle, freely switch them in and out to find your enemies weakness.. or even combine them for new and more powerful personas up to your current level…
    the combat system here is actually nothing that special at all.. its flashy and cool at first.. but it gets dull pretty quickly..
    thankfully youre able to fast forward battle to make your party do basic physical attacks to not waste your sp which is used to pull off moves from your personas
    and each palace does end in a boss battle…
    but this dungeon crawling and persona battles isn’t all this game is about.. if it were persona 5 wouldn’t be special at all…
    its this with whats outside of these dungeons that makes this game so great..
    youre living life as a school kid..
    youre paying attention in class answering questions, youre studying and reading books to boost your stats, youre getting part time jobs for cash to spend on weapons and gear, increasing your kindness, and going to the bathhouse for more charm,
    but youre also meeting up with your teammates, going on dates, helping characters out to boost your bond which in turn boosts their terrot card stats to give you perks back in the metaverse
    it’s the balance of all of these things that make persona 5 a great game…
    none of these parts on their own are any great at all..
    I felt the story lost steam after the komoshida arch as he was a such a perfect villain…
    I legitimately hated him
    it starts to pick up again towards the middle of this 100 hour journey…
    but it doesn’t reach the height of this games first 10 hours…
    and the dungeons were never really fun and I grew bored of the combat after around 20 hours…
    it’s the back and forth of managing your time with the right activities and people that keep you hooked…
    Persona 5 I still believe isn’t as great as everyone makes it out to be…
    im not even really sure the type of player to recommend this to..
    the jrpg and social aspects mixed together make this game really special and something more than just a turn based combat game…
    I give Persona 5
    an 8.5/10
