Nice review. I caught a small error, though:

like the ability to actually control your party members in battle (which, of, slows those lightning-fast battles down a notch from the PS2 versions

I think it should be "of course"?

Hope to see more stuff from you in the future!

Persona 3 has a pretty interesting premise that differs from what you'd typically see in a JRPG. I'd say the premise is VERY interesting and doesn't need to be qualified. Your description can let it fly. And I think this is very sensible and well put together. And if it doesn't get RotW mention it is probably because I found more reviews engaging. This does what a review should do. And while I felt more like "this is a good solid game" than amazed by the end, that's probably due to taste.

I also liked this: "should have been included here: a quick save option. There isn't one and that's disappointing. When will PSP developers learn?" This isn't snarky or whiny and seems right--the game does a lot of things right except for maybe a big one.

I too hope to read more from you.

Nicely done however I wonder why you did not mention the female protagonist being added to the game (Persona 3 having only the male protagonist). It is a pretty big thing.
