Persona 5 is the series’ addictive formula refined to a nearly perfect form.
Persona 5 is a masterpiece in every sense of the word. There is nothing more I can say.
Persona 5 is the definition of style and is a masterclass in how to make a good RPG. There’s nothing about it that doesn't make it stand out. The soundtrack is one of the best I’ve heard in a long time, the combat is simple yet surprisingly deep which allows for not only the game to be quite accessible, but it is also easy to pick back up.
Without a doubt, Persona 5 has climbed the ranks into one of my favorite games of all-time, if not being at the very top. It’s going to be hard for ATLUS to top this one when the eventual Persona 6 releases, but you know what’s funny? I said the same thing after finishing Persona 4 Golden, and guess what? They succeeded with Persona 5. I have full confidence they’ll be able to do it again in a few years time. There is a new measuring stick by which all future JRPG’s are going to be compared to, and it has successfully changed the landscape for what it means to be a Japanese developed roleplaying game.
Persona 5 is an absolute masterpiece and like many other reviews, I can’t help but echo the positivity here too. If you’ve never played a Persona game, play this one and work your way back. If you have played a Persona game then I imagine you’ll be playing this now and loving every minute of it. Buy this game, it’s one of the best RPGs in the last 10 years.
At the end of the day Persona 5 is the perfect dance of gameplay, music, story and design that mixes together to be the pinnacle of the JRPG genre and the best entry in the Persona series, and maybe even Shin Megami Tensei, to date.
Persona 5 ist sowohl ein gutes JRPG als auch ein hervorragender Visual Novel, behandelt schwierige Themen auf ernste und erwachsene Weise und motiviert mit seinen durchdachten Systemen, den emotionalen Geschichten, mit Style und Charme über 100 Stunden auf höchstem Niveau: Es ist ein Meisterwerk des Genres und eines der besten Spiele 2017.

Persona 5 is definitely a great game to pick up this 2017. Its attention-catching, stylish visuals and interesting systems make it enjoyable even to non-JRPG players.
At the end of the day, Persona 5 is an unmitigated blast. It unapologetically sticks to its style and pace, and you’ll ultimately grow to love or leave it for that. It does, however, offer a digital ton of content for both new and returning players to enjoy in a way that makes it well worth the price of admission.
