  • Conclusion: Concept: Take Persona 3, tweak some mechanics, add a chilling new story, and you've got another sequel Graphics: Stylish visuals can't completely mask the fact that you're playing on outdated hardware Sound: Despite a lot of repetition, the musical score is evocative.

  • Summary: From the hours-long introduction to the experience grind necessary to progress through the randomized dungeons, Persona 4 is a massive trial of patience. Your reward is a well-written and engrossing tale that mixes the realities of adolescent school life with a surreal dreamscape coming of age...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4

Video Game Generation
13 December 2008
  • Summary: Overall, Persona 4 feels very similar to its predecessor, but changes so many things that you can't at all say that it's Persona 3 with a new skin. The difficulty has been ramped up considerably what with all of the new game mechanics, but it offers the same solid RPG experience that we're starting...
  • Pros: Engaging, interesting gameplay., Awesome voice acting., Anime cut scenes have been dramatically improved., New game mechanics add more strategy than before., An RPG that knows what it's doing.
  • Cons: Frustrating difficulty can cause you to lose tons of playtime., Altered dungeon mechanics are annoying, and would have been better if left unchanged., Team members' AI occasionally makes some strange decisions., Balancing school, jobs, and dungeon fighting can be tough to manage.

  • Summary: Хотя в плане графики Persona 4 заранее проигрывает всем современным представителям жанра, она остается одним из главных релизов на актуальных сегодня платформах. Преемственность следует расценивать не как самокопирование, а как формулу, в которой ничего не нужно менять – и так хороша.

  • Excerpt: Med Shin Megami Tensei-spillene på Playstation 2 har japanske Atlus gitt rollespillsjangeren en skikkelig vitamininnsprøytning. Serien opererer sjelden med de velbrukte fantasiverdenene som er så alt for vanlig i både vestlige og japanske rollespill, men byr ofte på okkulte og sære verdener tett opp...

Persona 4 (PS2)

Gamesurf

  • Conclusion: Bellissimo, ma per stomaci forti, Persona 4 eredita dal precedente capitolo tutte le componenti tecniche necessarie per sviluppare in fretta e furia una trama nuova, ma non per questo meno curata.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4

GameCaptain

  • Conclusion: Persona 4 entwickelt das erfolgreiche Intermezzo aus Dating-Simulation und knallhartem Rundenrollenspiel gekonnt weiter. Alles ist ein bisschen mehr ausgearbeitet und komplexer als im Vorgänger, was nochmals motiviert und selbst für Besitzer von Persona 3 einen Kauf rechtfertigt.
