Anders Fischer: “Despite the odd pacing, I have to say that Persona 3 has its own charm and is 100% a recommendable game. It’s an excellent place to start with the series, perhaps because the slow start gives you plenty of opportunity to get to know everything before moving on in the series. But if you’re coming from Persona 5, you’ll have to be prepared for Reload to take its time getting started. Otherwise, we’re dealing with a sublime remake that makes an 18-year-old game feel brand new.”
