Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight Reviews
Seeing Persona 5's cast back together makes for some fun conversations between songs, but replaying the short setlist gets old quickly
By putting Persona 5's soundtrack at the forefront, Dancing In Starlight provides an exciting rhythmic twist to the bold style of the original RPG.
Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight knows its audience within its audience. It's one of the more engaging rhythm games I've played to date, even if I wish it was open from the start and had more to do. Like the Phantom Thieves, I have to follow my heart; and it sides with the music.
Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is a rhythm game that is very good but one that should've been released later on so it could've had a more varied soundtrack with better remixes.
Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is a rock solid and super stylish rhythm game. Its jazzy remixes are top notch and its presentation is excellent, resulting in a good-time-title that keeps you coming back for more.
Persona 5 fans get a last surprise as their favorite characters return to hit the dance floor in “Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight.” It could use more content and it also doesn’t have a full-fledged story mode like “Persona 4: Dancing All Night.” At the same time, the mechanics are solid and the soundtrack sounds great as ever. Even if you saw this one coming, it’s still a fun romp for Persona fans who enjoy rhythm games and want to see their favorite Phantom Thieves hanging out with each other again.
Though it might not be dense with content or story, Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is still a great rhythm game that captures the stylishness and tone of Persona 5. I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the latest Persona entry who has been itching for more since finishing the game.
Persona 5 Dancing is a good rythm game, but lacks of content and have a poor playlist.

Person 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Person 5: Dancing in Starlight are both great rhytm and musical games. Albeit the two lack some aspects from Persona 4. Dancing All Night like an Story mode or even a wider variety of tracks, both titles offer the enough ammount of content to please the fans of the series and, especially those who love the work of the composer Shoji Meguro.

Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is an emphatic return to beloved characters and themes from Persona 5. While its energy is relentless and its rhythm mechanics are capable, it's hard to deny Dancing in Starlight is a product picked, borrowed, and assembled from existing Persona games. It's a performance that moves but a show that doesn't go anywhere.
For any Persona fan, Dancing in Starlight is a solid entry. It gives you a chance to go back and experience more stories with the main characters, and it's a nice change of pace from the RPGs and shooters releasing this fall. But it's main gameplay mechanic - the actual rhythm gameplay - does get in its own way. But if you're just wanting to experience more stories and groove to the amazing soundtrack, Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is definitely a good place to do so.
For an odd spin-off to an RPG series, Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is very well executed.
Dancing in Starlight pays a loving tribute to Persona 5, but without a stronger setlist it doesn't stand alongside its fellow rhythm game spin-offs.
Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is the dance party I never knew I needed in my life. The soundtrack is incredible, the presentation is as cool as it was in Persona 5, and the characters are entertaining to watch during their performances. Although the story/Social Events do not really bring much as far as in depth character progression, I'll take what I can get if it means more time with the Phantom Thieves.
Both Persona Dancing games have excellent OSTs, but their gameplay doesn't share the same quality. I honestly hope Atlus keeps producing rhythm games, but they should reinvent their gameplay in future installments.

Though Persona 4: Dancing All Night shines on the PS4, Persona Dancing: Endless Night Collection fails to reach the high bar set by its predecessor.
Those who have already had their hearts taken by Persona 5 will enjoy their time with Dancing in Starlight, but those less familiar with the Phantom Thieves may be disappointed at its small song count and lack of extra content.
To my surprise, Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is basically the exact same game as Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight except with different songs, characters, etc.
While its release rounds out the trio of games that have more focus on the moving and grooving than on good old turn-based combat, all the choreography in the world can’t make the game a satisfying product.
Overall, Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is a solid rhythm title for fans of the series. While the music could’ve used a bit more variety, the overall quality of the track list is still superb.
