Persona 5 is an absolutely amazing game that convinces with its art style, music and story. It has anything one could ask for such a game and more. The turn-based battle system offers a wide array of opportunities. While it may not be everyone's cup of tea, it is definitely recommended to give it a go.
It's a game where the ultimate villain is political apathy, but in the process of telling a story about social justice Persona 5 falls back to cheap stereotypes and the same conservative values that it's supposed to be trying to overturn. But god damn those menus and music are nice! The visual stylings, gameplay systems and confidant narratives combine to create a technically proficient package that does make parts of the game more palatable
The graphics are impressive, the battle system is perfect, and the story is epic. This is a turn-based RPG you don't want to miss, so be sure to buy it today since I'm sure you'll LOVE it!
Persona 5 manages to combine style and substance with the most refined gameplay the series has seen, with some smart writing that doesn't quite always hit the mark
Whether you are a long time fan, or a Persona newbie, Persona 5 will certainly take your heart.
When I was around 20-30 hours into Persona 5 I thought it was a fantastic game. By the 100 hour mark and upon finishing my first playthrough I realized this is a truly exceptional game.
This is a must play game, for any gamer, whether you're a hardcore JRPG fan or someone just looking for a great story, with relatable characters and an interesting world.
Persona 5 takes the JRPG mold to create an intensely original, deep experience in its gameplay, presentation, and narrative. There are not many games that pull it off quite like Persona 5, marking it as a masterpiece title that will set a benchmark for years to come.
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.
RiME is a title that evokes emotional response through its design similarities to many great games, but stands apart from them by centering itself on an often unaddressed topic, relatable to all. Tequila Works took their time with this one, but the final product is well worthy of a playthrough.
