1UP-Persona 4 Golden Review

1UP:Back in 2008, when Atlus released Persona 4, it was just a great game. Soon, though, it became a cult phenomenon. Hundreds of thousands of fans celebrated the game in dozens of ways and Atlus basically turned P4 into its own franchise as they launched a TV anime adaptation and an honest-to-god fighting game. And yet after all of that, we come back to the starting point. Persona 4 Golden is as much a port as it is the equivalent of looking back at one's high school yearbook after spending a year or two in college -- for the most part, it was good times. If nothing else, it holds up better than some of our real memories. (Persona 4 Golden, PS Vita) A/A+

Yet another amazing review for P4G. I don't believe anyone has rated it below the equivalent of a 9/10. Truly a masterpiece, Sony is lucky to have Atlus' Persona series always releasing on their consoles.

Indeed so! Along with the Disgaea series, it would be great to see Persona get a rep in the PSBR fighter.

Never played Persona before but after being disappointed with later FF entries, I am thinking of starting a new JRPG series.

P4 seems like the place to start.

P3P is the place to start and then proceed to P4: The Golden ;o)...

Black Frost, people. Black Frost. lack Frost= don't even have to look at the screen to beat the game, lol.

Oh, and get understanding to lvl 5 for tower arcana.

You caqn date as many girls as you want, but if you don't do events with all of them, then you run the risk of having your social link reversed and your screwed.

You want Yukiko in you party!! Won't even have to worry about dying or your health with her.

Persona 4 Golden by the looks of it will probably be the highest rated game on the Vita for a LONG time judging by the scores it is getting.

@ Sinncross

The cool thing about the Persona games is the social aspect that the game has. You can go on dates to improve relationships that can help in battles. The story is very deep, dark, & quite twisted. The battle system for P4 is easier to grasp than P3. It is a great game that will guarantee you 60+ hrs of gameplay. There is a lot to do in the game.

yea... I need to get this now.. I mean I have to admit, Im not a fan of the graphics much but graphics isnt everything right? Seems like the story, gameplay and pretty much everything else is spot on. plus this is a ps2 remake so I understand the graphics being a bit off. Im def. getting this in the near future.
