Persona 5 US reviews are in.

3 posts in this topic

We all know that Persona 5 was originally released back in Japan September 15 2016 to enormously fucking good scores in Japan. And now, this game has been played by reviewers everywhere outside of japan, with these as their scores:

IGN 9.7/10
GamesRadar 5/5 stars11px-Star_full.svg.png11px-Star_full.svg.png11px-Star_full.svg.png11px-Star_full.svg.png
GameSpot 9/10
OPM (UK) 10/10
Polygon 9/10

 

Damn those lucky reviewers and their early review copies. 

 

Also fun fact: this game is the highest rated PS4 2017 game on Metacritic right now with 94, beating Horizon Zero Dawn's 8.9 and Nier Automata/ Nioh's 8.8. Sure it's not as high as Zelda, but we all know that Zelda only got that high of a score because Nintendo paid those people $$$ to give the game 10s up the ass even though the game is more like a 9.5 or 9 if you see the weapons breaking easily, the alright plot that's basically the same as previous Zelda games and even the Master Sword needing to recharge after use as detriments to the game.

 

Man, I can't wait to finally grab this game, upgrade my social links up the ass, do good in school exams, be the ultimate chick magnet and get every girl I can date to my side! And of course get every single summons in the game like Jack Frost because, well, you gotta have Atlus' mascot character with you in battle for good luck.

Such a shame that Dante is still only in Nocturne and not available as a special summons in any of the Persona games....

 

Point is: I can't stand this waiting anymore!!!GIVE ME PERSONA 5 NOW!!!!

I can't help but be skeptical of this recent persona craze. Seems like when it comes to JRPGs there is a series that gets hyped to the moon and then is relatively ordinary afterwards. Before the recent persona craze it was the Tales of series, and before that it was... Disgaea I guess?

That said I haven't given the regular persona series a try still because frankly I really don't like the art style, or the schoolkid thing. I can normally overlook those in a series but seems like it has more things I have to want to overlook than anything that sounds good for my tastes.

I'm half thinking I should try it anyway though because I do like devil survivor.

It is sort of a niche genre so if you didn't like other games in this genre or style then you probably won't like this one either.
