  • Summary: Persona 4: Arena is obviously a great treat for longtime Persona fans, but the best thing about it is that you don't have to be a die-hard fan of the previous games to enjoy the heck out of it. Arc System Works (BlazBlue, ) knows what it is doing when it comes to developing great fighting engines and Persona 4: Arena stands right up there with the best of them.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (PS3)

  • Excerpt: When the name Shin Megami Tensei is mentioned, two responses usually crop up: “Oh, I love those games! But they're so long...” or “Huh?”. For those of you in the latter category, some background might be needed. The rest of you can jump ahead.
  • Pros: Great fighting mechanics; intriguing story
  • Cons: Story is confusing if you don't know the Persona games; controls have a very steep learning curve

Persona 4 Arena

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Summary: A well-made integration of Persona 4 mechanics and characters into a delightfully complex fighting system.
  • 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.

Persona 4 Arena (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
12 August 2012
  • Excerpt: When you think 'RPG', Persona is one of the first words that comes to many a gamer’s mind. The Persona sub-series of Shin Megami Tensei captured the hearts of its players, with Persona 3 and 4 specifically being hailed as two of the greatest RPGs ever made. When you think 'Fighting games', you think Street Fighter , Mortal Kombat , Marvel vs Capcom and many others. But Atlus and Aksys want Persona to be the answer for that category, too.

  • Excerpt: The first time I played Guilty Gear X, I was simply blown away. Though I'd played many 2D fighters before, nothing had prepared me for Arc System Works' style of blistering fast gameplay, the lineup of stylish anime-style characters all bouncing around the screen at mach 5, stringing together insane combo chains. Thing as, as much as I was hooked on ASW's flagship title, I could never wrap my head around their current franchise darling: BlazBlue.
