Persona 4: Golden may not change too much from the original game, but it never needed to.
The extra shine on the visuals and the additional features are merely the icing on the cake of what was already a pretty tasty offering.
Some may dislike the traditional corridor-based dungeon levels, but the combat is deep and expansive, the story layered and involving, and the atmosphere of dark menace mixed with teenage levity remains a breath of fresh air.
Get past the early lack of proper interactivity whilst the story is carefully laid out and this will have you snared for a good forty hours of proper turn-based, stat-hungry, power checking, creature creation J-RPG excellence.
