Persona 5 Review
- The art direction is immediately striking and bleeds into everything from the character designs to the menus.
- Persona 5 commits to the series turn based combat while also perfecting it over previous entries.
- Building relationships outside of combat with other characters is as addictive as ever and it now brings new mechanics to gameplay.
- Like previous games in the series, Persona 5 succeeds in making the player care about the main story through the core cast of characters.
- The Persona 5 soundtrack is truly memorable and almost second to none.
- There are multiple points in the game in which the narrative prevents you from exploring the world for seemingly arbitrary reasons.
- The first several of the hours of the game can feel less than inspiring.
- Even though the story is entertaining over all, there are some parts that don’t stick the landing.
Committing to Persona 5 is a lot to ask out of anyone. But those who do will find a stylish and mechanically engaging RPG that is unlike any other.
