Persona 4 Golden Review | EDGE

EDGE: "Making new friends – and better friends of the ones you already have – makes you stronger still. That’s quite the social message for such a singleplayer game, but Persona 4 Golden is full of surprises. Perhaps the biggest is that a console JRPG is so well suited to portable play, and that a four-year-old PS2 game is, by some distance, Vita’s best game to date." (Persona 4 Golden, PS Vita) 9/10

It should be, I'm 32 hours in and it's still as addicting as ever.

Persona is a great series. It's all about the balancing of the social and combat elements of the game. Keeps things fresh interesting throughout the entire experience.

While I am really not a jrpg person, Persona 3:FES ranks itself among the few titles that I truly love - Dragon Quest VIII, Rogue Galaxy, Final Fantasy XII and Cloud 2.

IMO the best game on vita by far.

Didn't play Persona on the PS2, but after playing Golden I ended up buying Persona 3 & Persona 4 Arena because I was so impressed with it.

persona is ok... its for hardcore noobs. never will be better than street fighter, kof, guilty gear or even mortal kombat

Considering that Persona 4 Golden (please do correct me if I'm wrong in saying this) is a JRPG, and really quite different from the list of beat'em ups you just posted; I don't think it's really fair to say one is categorically better than the other.

Either way - great review, literally itching to pick it up!

If you're talking about Persona 4 Arena you may be right.

I don't play fighting games as I have no interest in them, so I'm not a good judge of gameplay, but I played it for the story since it was supposed to be a sequel to Persona 4. The story mode was more of a visual novel instead of a fighting game and that's the way I preferred it as I was only there for the story.
