2015/9/1: Playstation Vita: Persona 4 Golden

Postby VideoGameCritic » September 1st, 2015, 7:07 pm

This is the first review for the new RPG Review Crew. Thanks to ptdebate for submitting this!
It's not the kind of game I'd usually review, so glad to post it.
Comments are encouraged.

I have to admit that I'm intrigued about the reader review score for the game currently being a D+.

Is it because it's a enhanced re-release of a game (i.e the original Persona 4); it might be interesting information to know if Ptdebate played the original release or if this his first time?

The review itself is great, but I feel the above was a tiny bit of missing information.

There was some contention about the opening line. It was originally this:

Imagine daydreaming wistfully about high school, the simplicity of youthful summer, and the thrill of innocent romance. If you also imagine fighting demons, exploring fantastical parallel worlds, and solving murder mysteries, then you're not daydreaming but playing Persona 4 Golden.


More poetic yes, but didn't make much sense to me. Also, I hated high school!

I did play Persona 4 on PS2 as well, but I feel that Golden is the definitive edition of the game due to better graphics, added content which rounds out the narrative more, and various other improvements. It's like Subsistance is to Snake Eater or Fallout 3 GOTY is to the base game.

I probably would have ranked Persona 4 on PS2 a B+ due to how crowded that system is with fantastic games.

Thank you for all the positive comments everyone! Please look forward to seeing more reviews from other RPG reviewers and myself!
