Persona 4 Golden Review | PSX Extreme

PSX Extreme: "It's a shame the graphics didn't receive an upgrade and we don't understand why the Japanese voices aren't included, but other than that this port of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 is a great PlayStation Vita title. The game still has lots of features and possibilities, and is covered with a tasteful layer of JRPG influences."

It... Did receive a graphic update... It's in HD now. Unless they mean textures and character models aren't HD as well, which would have taken quite a while to do.

Also the game doesn't have japanese voices because of liscensing issues with the voice acting guilds of there wanting compensation if voices are used overseas (essentially doubling cost of English version). Everyone who followed this game to release knows that. YET, this "journalist" doesn't?

When will these so called journalists do some actual research? I down-voted the site due to it's lack of understanding and research prior to posting it's review.

That said, I have to say that for a JRPG the voice acting actually isn't ear tearing. Truly one of the few JRPGs dubbed into English that doesn't make you want to tear your hair out by the roots. I'm in mind of the first Yakuza. It isn't bad if you've never heard the Japanese voice acting, but if you have, the English voices are horrible. Just a personal opinion, haha. :)

8\10, r u serious, this is a joke right?

Kratoscar20081332d ago

8/10 is what i give this game due to its pacing issues, broken gameplay and the cut of the dungeon crawl part.

To someone that wouldnt like the social aspects but likes its gameplay is perfectly valid to not like the game.

And the story is not that great.

8/10? GTFO this game has single handed killing my free time for 2 weeks now :) Graphics? It's now in HD right? And who cares this game is so amazing i dont need super HD graphics

CaptainSheep1332d ago

Came in here to say this. You can enjoy Persona games even if they don't have great graphics. The story, the characters, the dungeon gameplay are all great. The game is no where near an 8, it's a perfect 10, in my opinion.

Sanquine901332d ago

@CaptianSheep You hit the nail on that one! This game is amazing! I pray for persona 5 also comes on vita:) ( And ps3) Because it always is something i played on the playstation brand. OT Hopefully vita.. this game playing on the go was a dream beyond my wildest dreams

Protagonist1332d ago

Definitely not a 8/10 game but at least 9/10.

What is this silly review filled with misinformation?

These silly websites and "articles" truly inspire me to become a games journalist. Without the quotes :P

P4 is one of the best games, and with upgraded graphics and extra stuff to do the Vita version is the definite version.
