Shin Megami Tensei: Persona shares some of the same DNA with Persona 3 and 4, though it is likely fans will find the original is completely different from other games in the series. Although the game still revolves around a school and its demon-summoning students, there are none of the social aspects like the ones found in later titles. Persona is more of a straightforward RPG, but with a twist in perspective. Battles and "conversation areas" take place in 3rd person, while exploration is handled via a 1st person view. Interaction within the level is limited to opening doors while in 1st person, though it makes for an interesting way of getting around. Areas are large, though the view's travel speed causes them to feel smaller.
