IGN-Persona 4 Golden Review

IGN:Four years ago, IGN deemed Persona 4 “amazing” on the PlayStation 2. Today, I’m saying the same thing about Persona 4 Golden on the PlayStation Vita. With its slick HD visuals, peppy voice actors and engaging story, the Japanese role-playing game stands among the best titles on Sony’s handheld, but when you toss in how deep the gameplay is and how much there is to do, Persona 4 Golden becomes the stuff of legend. (Persona 4 Golden, PS Vita) 9.3/10

The game is officially legend material! It was a masterpiece in JRPG back in 2008, now it has transcended that genre & is now among the elite of the elite.

One of the highest rated games of all time so far...
Ragnarok Odyssey and LBP Vita comes very close

Its also nice that PSV has PS+, e-mail, 1080p video playback and a good internet browser.

It's getting better all the time.

Happy Vita Gaming

The Vita now has its definitive game in its short life span so far. When a JRPG has received such high critical acclaim it can only mean that the genre has a home on the system & i hope more developers look at the Vita more closely despite its sales figures.

Looks like this is a must buy if you don't have the PS2 version.
Snookies12  +   670d ago
It was a must buy even though I DID have the PS2 version lol!
LiViNgLeGaCY  +   669d ago
Lol, funny thing is I HAVE the PS2 version but I'm still gonna get this. I just love this game, and the added features just sounded too good to miss! =P
Hicken  +   669d ago
Got the PS2 version.

Got this version.

If it comes out for some 3DO, I'll get that version, too. It's so worth it.
LOGICWINS  +   669d ago
I'll get the Golden after I finish the original P4. I'll appreciate the new additions even more after I play the original.
TheColbertinator  +   670d ago
Come on Amazon,send it already!!!!
TheLastGuardian  +   669d ago
Damn, got my copy of All-Stars today but no P4G. :( UPS doesn't work on Thanksgiving or the day after so I'll get it Saturday I hope. You're getting the solid gold edition, right?

This game OOZES style. Not sure how it compares to the original PS2 one, but even the menu system in P4 Golden is amazing looking. I seriously took a screenshot of the save menu because I wanted it as a background.

It was a good week for the vita, between Sina Mora, PS Allstars, PS+ on Vita, and Persona 4 Golden, my Vita has been getting nonstop usage. Nice being reminded how great of a system it is when good games actually come out for it.

People can make fun of the low Vita sales all they want. I'll just be over here, happily playing a ton of awesome games on mine. :)

This so much

Tell me friend how do you like Sine mora so far ?is it hard or short ?
im 1 step away from buying it XD
ctorretta  +   669d ago
Not sure how long, but it is awesome so far. Challenging but not bullet-hell level crazy. Definitely worth picking up!

Shame it isn't crossbuy... I'd love to play it on the PS3 too. Oh well, the Vita version looks and plays great so I'm not crushed. I just like free stuff. :p
Kingthrash360  +   669d ago
I also have sine mora I haven't beat it but its a beautiful game that's worth 9.99 for sure. Coulda easily been 19.99 I'm my opinion. Really fun shooter
chasegarcia  +   670d ago
This and Gravity Rush for PSvita GOTY.
DigitalAnalog  +   670d ago
Looks like it's the Vita's HIGHEST rated game. I've never played the series, looks like I need to get into it. What do you recommend? Go by series or can I start with this?
TiberusX87  +   670d ago
It also looks like it's one of the highest rated for the year. That's so fantastic, P4 is right up there as one my favourite games of all time.

@DigitalAnalog, I started with this game before I played any of the others. It's more like Final Fantasy where there are common themes between the games, but not a direct narrative continuation. Pick it up, you won't regret it.
Ultr  +   669d ago
Sounds good, I only hear good things bout it and I NEVER played any of them! I thought I would not buy any other game this year...maybeeeeee :)
Eazy-Eman  +   669d ago
If you're a completionist, hold off on the game and buy p3p first. The faq for the game helped me out since I was new to the series 7 months ago, and if you jump in without experience like I did you will be overwhelmed with all the things you are able to do and miss. I usually go for maxing out social links in one playthrough which gave players an ultimate persona in 3 (Orpheus Telos). But if you don't mind trial and error, buy persona 4 and enjoy the game. You will not regret it!
Protagonist  +   669d ago
I agree with @Eazy-Eman,get Persona 3 Portable first. It Is as good as P4.
DigitalAnalog  +   669d ago
Awesome guys.
Thanks for the help.
Eazy-Eman  +   669d ago
Hello peeps, if anyone is new to the series and needs any help or questions, feel free to message me on psn (ID is the same as my username). After I beat this game I'll be playing p4 arena!
AsunaYuukiTheFlash  +   669d ago
Game of the Year.
Eazy-Eman  +   669d ago
Wouldn't it be disqualified because it's a remastered port of a game that came out 2008? Either way I view it as the game of the decade in my own "persona"l world.
Protagonist  +   669d ago
Persona 3 Portable and P4 are definitely games of the decade.
tubers  +   669d ago
Wow! Even IGN reveres this game.. SWEET!
Kingthrash360  +   669d ago
Has ign finally taken their heads out of their arses and reviewed a vita game correctly.... Or did they dig up some old reviews from 2008? ...... Either way an accurate score for a great game.
