Persona 5….Wow, such an excellent game. Possibly the best game of the entire generation to release. Persona 5 is a masterpiece..no it’s perfect and it deserves to be played by everyone JRPG fan or not. If you’re looking for a game that’ll wow you then this a game to definitely get. First of all, let’s talk about the graphics. Persona 5 is a stunning game. The graphics in Persona 5 is solid and overall have improved drastically compared to Persona 4 or Persona 4 Golden. The textures in the game are great and the character models are quite good. But one thing Persona 5 does have is style. Yes, style. Persona 5 is the most artistic, most stylish game I have ever played. Persona 5 just oozes with style. Persona 5 is just full of color. Yes, Persona 5 isn’t the most beautiful game in the world, the graphics aren’t as realistic as Horizon Zero Dawn or Uncharted 4. But one thing Persona 5 has over both of those games is style and the excellent art style makes up for everything in my opinion. The UI is brilliant. Heck, even the loading screen oozes with style. The cinematics is gorgeous and the anime cutscenes are excellent. Persona 5 is eye candy. The art style is just gorgeous.
The music in Persona 5 is incredible. The dungeon themes are excellent. The soundtrack in Persona 5 is godly. Persona 4/ Persona 4 Golden had an excellent soundtrack, but the soundtrack in Persona 5 is better in my opinion. The battle theme in Persona 5 is outstanding and the dungeon boss battle theme is incredible. Every single track in this game is fantastic and If Atlus ever releases a Persona 5 album I’ll buy it in a heartbeat. The soundtrack in this game is that good.
Persona 5 is set in Tokyo and Tokyo is perfect for this game in my opinion. This game gives you a feel of how Tokyo really is in real life. Everything is just so real from the crowds to the people wearing surgical masks. Persona 5 is a very deep game with a lot of deep themes. Most of the characters go through something. Also, the characters in Persona 5 are excellent and are very interesting. I don’t want to talk too much about the characters because If I do I’ll probably spoil too much since the characters are very important in this game. But let me just say something. If you liked the characters in Persona 4/3 then you’ll adore the characters in this game because the characters in Persona 5 are better then the characters in Persona 4/3 in my opinion. A lot of the dialogues in this game can be very funny.
The dungeons in this game are beautifully designed. You can tell each dungeon was carefully designed in this game. For example, Kamoshida’s Palace is designed very well. Persona 4 was known for poorly designed dungeons. The dungeons in this game are much better compared to Persona 4. Persona 4 was also known for having a very slow start. Well, I have some excellent news. Persona 5 gets right into the action.
The story in Persona 5 is incredible. But I won’t talk much about it because I don’t want to spoil it.
The gameplay in Persona 5 is fantastic and the UI during battles is gorgeous and stylish. The stylishness and the godly battle theme makes battles, even more, fun and addicting. In Persona 5 the main character is able to wield Personas by switching Masks. You can acquire Personas by talking to them. You’re also able to use a gun in this game. Every character has a different gun like for example Morgana has a Sling Shot. The guns in Persona 5 adds uniqueness and style to the game. Every character also has an all out attack portrait and are they stylish.
Confidants replace Social Links in this game. Confidants are very similar to Social Links but better. And yes there is romance in this game. Overall Persona 5 is a “perfect” game. But really no game is perfect but Persona 5 is very close to perfection. Not only is Persona 5 one of the best JRPG’s of all time it’s best PS4 exclusive to date and you haven’t played any Persona games I still recommend you play this. If you enjoyed Persona 4 then wow are you in for a treat. Persona 5 is one of the best games I’ve played. Truly magnificent recommended to everyone.
Persona 5 is just brilliant. Not only is it the best exclusive on the PS4 it’s also one of the best JRPG’s of all time.
