Edge Review: Persona 4

For the first two hours of Persona 4 you're watching a game, not playing one. Your inputs shunt the dialogue along with no other output in the traditional gaming sense.

Rather, this extended introduction acts as a primer, settling you into the rustic town of Inaba just as your character, who arrives there from Tokyo at the game's start, acclimatises alongside you. Together you make close and likeable friends at the local high school. You watch as your uncle and host gets worn down by his job, working a spate of murders as a detective. You visit the new neighbourhood superstore (owned by one of your friends' parents) and hear the familiar real-world tale of how its arrival has harmed smaller local businesses (owned by another). (Persona 4, PS2) -

Really terrific title.
And there's a decent chance that Persona 5 might be on the PS2 as well, which is nice (there was an article posted about that the other day). A next-gen version would be appreciated, but I'm glad that they're not rushing it. Also nice that the PS2 might get some more great software before being put out to pasture.

It's nice to see a JRPG with complex, interesting systems that are implemented properly; unlike most JRPGs this gen, which seem complicated merely for the sake of being so.

Oh, and it upscales well if you have an older PS3. I don't have any "black bars" on mine (though that could be my t.v. as well).

Cheers,
