"I’ve come to the conclusion that Persona 4: The Golden does a great many wondrous and great things. I mean, it makes school seem like a cool place to hang out, classes and study seem worthwhile and most of all, it makes talking to foxes seem like a remotely sane act. By far its best trick is two-fold though; not only does it succeed in giving Vita owners another must-have title for their struggling handheld but it also delivers, or rather re-delivers, one of the finest JRPG’s in years in shiny and improved form.
With that said, precious little has changed in the JRPG landscape since Persona 4′s original PS2 release back in 2008. Square-Enix still finds itself increasingly unable to recapture the magic from its PSOne days with its evermore budget-heavy and conceptually uninspiring Final Fantasy iterations, while Persona 4 reminds us that, over five years later, the gulf between them remains as vast as it ever was."
