Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES Review for PlayStation 2: Restless Inner Demons - GameFAQs
I personally didn't think it was better, mostly from the characters and story perspective. But, I'm part of the minority it seems. That's why it's common for people who play P4 first to get a warning about P3. Everything else is just different. To put it one way, if neither game existed and I was to make a game I would use P3 as the base, and yet rip out and replace huge sections of the middle in particular where it sort of drags.
The overall "feel" of P3 is so good that even if it has some pacing and direction issues, it's still the better base material.
But if I had to leave the game mostly as it is, I could probably get more out of what P4 offers. It's starting to drag on and there's next to nothing to do in the evening, and I already maxed out my stats and both the Devil and Tower S. A small problem is that the pacing skyrockets near the end of the game, which is definitely off-putting.

Practically every activity has purpose, even something as simple as sleeping the day away to increase morale. Persona 3, regardless of whether you decide to tackle the side-quests and Social Links, is a lengthy game, clocking in at over 70 hours.
The Tower of Tartarus is without a doubt an endurance challenge, but the strong gameplay is addicting and will keep you coming back. With plenty of side-quests and additional dialogue to uncover, Persona 3: FES is a huge game that will keep you hooked even after its climactic conclusion.
Despite being a late-generation PS2 title, the presentation in Persona 3 is actually quite good. The beautifully-designed anime cutscenes are visual treats, despite there being a bit too few of them.
In-game, the graphics are respectable, but the artistic design of the Tower of Tartarus is haunting and twisted, a huge contrast from the humble school days of the morning hours. The sound design is really where the presentation shines.
Yes, the addition of the entirely new game is an excellent bonus, but it's the outstanding storytelling and inter-personal interactions which make Persona 3 such a great title.
