what an absolutely beautiful game. of course it has its issues... like, PLENTY of issues, but none of them stop this game from delivering one of the most impactful and meaningful stories of any game ive played in a LONG long while.
just to list some of my biggest issues with the game really quick before i wrap up; the new music is 50/50, lotus juice is very obviously older now and it comes though. still commend him for coming back though.
the new cutscenes are mostly all inferior by quite a bit, especially the in engine ones.
the game is just TOO easy imo, i only had a bad time once or twice on bullshit bosses (the damn love hotel ugh).
some of the social links are w/e, not bad just mostly forgettable.
and speaking of writing, some of the conflict between characters in this game can feel a little arbitrary at times, junpei especially.
the game can look kinda ugly at times. the models are fantastic but the environments can be pretty comparable to the ps2 original at times lol.
just straight up, the pc port is pretty garbage. had WAY too many crashes and a weird flickering across my screen till i reset. also super weird fps issues but only sometimes? the menus were laggy as hell its very strange.
SPOILER, but to wrap up...
i feel like knowing how the game ended almost made my experience better, especially the last day. making all those empty promises him and i both knew could never be fulfilled.
I understand why some people are disappointed with certain aspects of Persona 3 Reload, but I cannot be counted among them.
As a remake, this did everything I could have asked for and then some: the new voice cast in unbelievable, the new music is perfect, the new and expanded characters moments are literally game-changing, and the gameplay is modernized expertly.
I couldn't be happier.
