Persona 4 Golden is more than a retread of past glory.
It takes the core story and formula of the original Persona 4, but it builds on it in myriad brilliant ways — from the much more welcoming combat mechanics to a story whose few plot holes have been filled.
It's the tightest, best-written, and most must-play game Atlus has ever created.
Persona 4 started as a strong, singular RPG; with Persona 4 Golden, it is a masterpiece. 10/10
