Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Game Revolution
26 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Of FES, Golden, and Ultimax. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax may sound like a remake for the original fighting Persona spin-off released in North America on August 2012, but it's more of a direct sequel that expands the underlying story, the number of available modes, and the size of the character roster.

Persona 4 Arena

18 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Thus, Persona 4 Arena is a standout game; it marries theme and mechanics closely, and through its apparent simplicity allows a total novice to enjoy it all while layering on levels of strategy for advanced play based on positioning and timing rather than specific dexterity at inputting attacks. This much more strategic aspect is almost a way of translating RPG combat to a fighting game and changing the focus much more towards system mastery.

Persona 4 Arena Review

Games Abyss
22 August 2012
  • Conclusion: : One of the best fighting games on the market today. Enough said.
  • Pros: While I have enjoyed many fighting games in my time, I have never been happier playing one than with P4A. The ultimate fulfillment of fun will be achieved by those who are fans of both the Persona series and fighting games. Addressing the game purely as a fighter however, it doesn’t get much smoother or enjoyable than this.
  • Cons: : Story-mode appeals only to the most hardcore Persona or RPG fans and even then it could use more player-controlled fight sequences and less repetition. Hit boxes can seem a bit odd at times, but are not difficult to get used to.

  • Pros: Excellent visuals; Arc System fans will feel right at home; new, canonical Persona storyline; complex fighting system that incorporates personae.
  • Cons: A little daunting for beginners; no easy-to-reference combo list; story mode is more visual novel than fighting game.
