Xbox 360 Review: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Video Games Reloaded
18 December 2014
  • Summary: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax may disappoint fans of the Persona series who long for a true sequel to the series, but it does provide a decent follow-up to the first Arena entry. It may add some new moves and an extended storyline, but it lacks polish in its presentation.

24 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Persona is probably the longest running and consistently good JRPG series out there. The last two titles have done an increasingly great job of blending dungeon crawling and grinding with the everyday life of a Japanese high school student.

  • Conclusion: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a stellar follow up to Arc System Works’ 2012 offering. Not just a shameless cash-in, Ultimax continues Arena’s story with a lengthy conclusion, delivered in classic Persona style with some dazzling cutscenes.

  • 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.
