Awwww yeaaaaaahhhhhhhh, after waiting for the english version for a LOONG time, I have finally finished this game. And it is by far by a country mile, the best game that Omega Force aka the Dynasty Warrior dev's had ever made to date. And all they need to do is not make yet another Dynasty Warriors copycat game & actually make a sequel to Persona 5 with most of the game mechanics intact with Dynasty Warriors square square triangle button mashing being used strategically. Hallelujah, they've finally broken their long monotony! They should've done this a long time ago. XD This game's story is 6 months after Persona 5 Royal. The Phantom Thieves are having a summer vacation, and they're doing a road trip to spend their vacation together. Of course, since this is a Persona game, this ain't your typical road trip. The gang has to fight a bunch of villains & Shin Megami Tensei monsters along the way while they decide to do what typical high schoolers do: having a lot of fun everywhere they go. With a new AI companion Sofia & a poor2 cop Zenkichi to accompany them along their very eventful journey, hilarity, sadness & awesomeness ensues along the way. And it's freaking awesome! I mean just listen & look at this banger of an intro & you'll be pumped for the journey ahead. Interestingly the game did not reference Royal a lot & only give you vague hints to what happens in that game, so that even the people who only play the normal Persona 5 game can get straight into this game. Apparently this is because both Royal & Scramble were developed at the same time, and so they decided to have Royal end in a way that is conclusive & doesn't need to be directly referenced when Scramble is finally released. Weird way to do it but it'll do. Now I know what you players of Dynasty/Samurai/ Whatever anime these dev made into a Dynasty Warriors clones are thinking: this game's just gonna be another Dynasty Warriors clone & you'll just do set missions after missions while protecting ai officers/ friends over and over and over again. Which to be fair, was my first thought too when this game was first announced. And as I had already said in the beginning, that is totally FAAAAAAARRRR OFFF from reality as soon as I played this game's demo months ago. In truth, this game is pretty much a true sequel to Persona 5 where most of the Persona 5 goodness is kept as it is, but made even more actiony without it being another square square triangle Warriors game. Combat of the game does have the usual square square triangle of the Warriors game, but the beauty of it is each Phantom Thieves have their own style of gameplay & it makes playing each of them different and not just you playing the same movesets. Joker & Makoto for example has 6 combo strings while Ryuji & Haru has 4 combo strings, but Ryuji & Haru can create more powerful attacks by holding down the triangle button. Ann can imbune her whip with fire property, while Yusuke is more like a Sengoku Basara Uesugi Kenshin/ Ishida Mitsunari with his slick katana swordplay. If you play a character often, you can increase their mastery which unlocks their movelists that make them stronger. And best of all, every single enemy you face are just like Persona 5 where they have weaknesses & strength against different attack types, so you're incentivized to switch characters & hit them with their weaknesses. The bosses in this game are definitely the highlight. There's a lot of em both sub bosses & major boss fights, and if you level up yourself properly, these fights are a damn blast to do. My personal favorite being one of endgame bosses which has a damn kickass theme & the fight itself is just absolutely bangers with it. I can't spoil it, but I was so damn giddy when I play it. Why the hell didn't Dynasty Warriors do this in their previous games? Why did they make Dynasty Warriors 9 & make Attack on Titan really damn boring instead of actually changing their combat like what they did with this game??? Cause if they did, I would actually buy one of their sequels instead of ignoring them until the latest Warriors Orochi 4 game cause 90% of their games are just the damn same WHY DO YOU TAKE THIS LONG TO ACTUALLY MAKE SOMETHING AWESOME & DIFFERENT ASDSDJNDHNDSSGDGOASFASDF Ahem, lost myself a bit there. Exploration is the same as Persona 5, only much better in that you can do more platforming & climb to high places more often, there's plenty of areas with their own themes depending on which major boss inhabits that area, and there's a lot of TREASURES to collect. You bet I went through most of the game just exploring every area & finding these things, and I love it. Oh yes, there is one thing that's very different compared to Persona 5: time doesn't matter. You no longer have to face the dilemma of "should I return back to the real world while I'm in the halfway point of this dungeon? I don't want to get out & skip a day cause I want to beat this dungeon ASAP so I can socialize with my confidants" cause this game doesn't have confidant/social links. Instead when you exit a dungeon, it is actually a good tactic since time doesn't skip forward like in 5, and you're restored to your full health when you go back to the dungeon immediately. And the social links are replaced with a LOT of scenes where you & your gang just hang out & enjoy the city you visited for your road trip. Make sense since this game is a road trip game to different parts of Japan & realistically the gang's spending 1 month doing this road trip, but I do wish that you can at least have a date with one of the girls. The most you do is invite one of your companions to a Ferris wheel in one of the cities & that's it. But I wanna go on even more dates with Makoto & Futaba damn it! Can't do it with Tae since she's not in this game! The request sidequest missions return, and this time you can actually replay previous stages by selecting them, unlike before where you're locked from the previous dungeon after beating them. Now this is actually a really good way to incentivize replaying the previous missions again since not only can you return & collect those pesky secret treasure chests that eluded you the first time, if you so choose, you can also replay the major boss fights to your heart's content. I love this cause I get to fight my favorite boss fight in the game & rock on to that boss' epic tunes over and over again, while getting rewards like new weapons/ cash for doing so. By the end of the game, I was so filthy rich from doing this one repeatable quests in dungeons 5 beyond that requires you to hand over materials you collected during your dungeon hunting that I can buy anything I want from items to getting those delicious high tier Personas YEAAAHHHHHHHH I really enjoyed the story of this game as a whole. It is indeed a road trip that will be remembered fondly for the sightseeing, funny shit, the many2 delicious mouth watering foods & awesome boss fights, but I really like new companions you get to travel with. Sofia's this newfound AI companion that can manifest herself in the Metaverse which is so damn cute & helpful that you want her to succeed in her goal to becoming a true companion by having her enjoy life, and Zenkichi the cop which tags along with you is a pretty damn cool dude that it's nice to see him having fun & grow to like the main Phantom Thieves group. And I also like that the villains in this game are not just complete degenerate pricks like the ones in Persona 5. Instead the villains in this game are more like the final boss in Royal where they all had a dark & messed up past, but they think they're doing the right thing by using their powers for their own misguided, but relatable motivations. Even the party can relate to them after they're defeated & their resolutions are pretty sweet. I really feel bad for most of the major villains in this game & it brings a lot of dimension to them. Well done game. Oh yes, and there's 1 thing that this game completely nails: THE FUCKING MUSIC. HOLY SHIET, they not only remixes the tunes from 5 & elevate them to epic levels, but the new tracks are also fucking bangers that I rock into. Here's just some example of the masterful tunes this game had both remix & new: And unlike Persona 3's battle theme which makes me want to shoot myself cause it gets annoying as hell, I actually freaking love listening to these tunes even when they're played more than 10 times. Well done music team for making Persona 5's songs even better than it was before! It is but with great sadness though that I had to say that there is 1 part of this 50+ hours game that momentarily broke my heart. So there's this really damn awesome boss fight that you do in the 5th major area in the game. You beat the boss, a heartfelt story moment happens, and you return to the real world. For some goddamn reason, the game crashed afterwards................. and I had to do that boss fight again. I don't mind though cause the boss is epic, so I did the fight again. Then for some damn reason, this time I was met with a black screen that just shows itself infinitely for no reason. So I quit the game again & hope to God the 3rd time's the charm annnnd I'M STILL IN THE DAMN BLACK SCREEN WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF And so I went to google to find a solution. As it turns out, for whatever reason, that part of the game needs to be Alt - tabbed to make the loading screen load things in the background or else you're stuck with the black screen.......................................... I repeat: YOU HAVE TO ALT - TAB THE LOADING SCREEN TO PROGRESS TO THE NEXT PART OF THE GAME.................... I actually was so pissed at that, I became Ice Cube during this scene. Buuut other than that & how you can't really continue your romance from the previous game to this, this game is really damn awesome. It is a true Persona 5 sequel through and through, and I am looking forward to seeing the Phantom Thieves' next adventure after this. I'll be down with them teaming up with previous Persona characters, which I heard was what this game's planned story will have at one point, and also even more badass bossfights to fight against. I give this game my rating of "so damn awesome that you will play this game again after you beat it, while listening to the kickass songs over and over again until the sequel comes out", with a well earned Badass Seal of Approval Go get this game, it's very much worth it, especially to Persona 5 fans that wants more of the main gang kicking ass & having a good time enjoying themselves. Here's till the next adventure, till we meet again Phantom Thieves! Stay classy & enjoy life to its fullest!
