Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 Review


It's almost too bad that Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei franchise has come into its own during the twilight years of the PS2. The fantastic RPG series simply isn't getting the recognition it deserves, and Atlus clearly isn't interested in making the leap to...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 is, in my opinion, the pinnacle of the series. It really is one of the best RPGs I’ve played in quite a long while, and even though the competition is thin, that doesn’t stop Atlus’ latest effort from being a clear-cut...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 on Playstation 2


Going to School Was Never This Much Fun

While Persona 4 manages to be the very definition of a hardcore Japanese role playing game, and possibly one of the better (if not best) role playing game that came out in 2008 as well. While it does manage to have a rather slow start, the entire...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (PS2)


Were it not for three elements -- a tedious opening, a dim ending and an overly passive "hero" -- I'd be tempted to call Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 a nearly perfect Japanese role-playing game. Or, perhaps I should say that it would be a nearly...

This review is based on a retail copy of the game provided by the publisher.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4


When Persona 3 came out, I thought it was one of the best RPGs out for the Playstation 2. At a time when many of the other Japanese RPGs for the system had become stale and very formulaic, Persona 3's combination of school/life simulation and dungeon...

It is surprising that Atlus was able to create a title that not only meets the standards set by its predecessor but surpasses them, especially considering how little time passed in between when the two were released. But they have certainly done it,...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 review for the PS2


Let go of my Ego.

Art. Period.; Intriguing whodunit mystery; Mythological and psychological symbolism; True-to-life characters; Spirited soundtrack; Simple but challenging combat system; Having control over all characters

Not many town areas to explore; Persona 3.8

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 is one of those rare games that have such a nonchalant, organic, and artful message about humanity that it feels improper to dissect and analyze each of its parts without recognizing the strength of its narrative sum. It...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (PS2) Review


With the PS2 on its last legs, can Persona 4 deliver the life support that it so desperately needs? 411's Derek Robbins gives us the scoop on what could be the Playstation 2's last definitive RPG.

Persona 4 is most likely the Playstation 2’s last great game. While I said the same thing last year in regards to the third persona title, I really don’t think that another great one will be coming out in the year 2009. The system has run the gauntlet...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4


Persona 4 is a must-play RPG, and one of the best games of the year.

Stylish art direction and character designs; deep gameplay mechanics; a captivating slice of life in rural Japan; superbly written storyline

Repetitive dungeon corridors look bland; combat can be incredibly difficult on the normal setting

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4


Persona 3 was a pleasant surprise for me and many other JRPG fans. The concept of being a half life-simulation, half dungeon-crawler sounds interesting on paper, but there was skepticism on how it would work out. To our surprise, Atlus delivered on...

Persona 4 isn’t a huge leap forward like Persona 3 was from the 2nd game, but it’s a formula that works well, and Atlus further refined it. They added a lot of small features to make the game more interesting while tweaking out the annoying aspects of...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 Review


Bears live inside your TV

The hilarious mid-summer camping trip

Unskippable cutscenes and long stretches between save

With those issues in mind, the fact remains that Persona 4's mechanics are ingenious, the characters are well-written and engaging, the voice work and music are top-quality, the art is beautifully stylish, and its basis in a real-world setting manages...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (PS2) review


Going back, back, back to school...

As a swan song to the PS2 Persona 4 isn't the highest note and all the bizarre characters, storylines and Personas you unlock can't change that. But if you don't mind grinding too much then there is some enjoyment to be had.
