After playing Persona 5, I really wanted to play more Persona games. Persona 4 Golden released on steam last year, so I finally got the chance to play it.
Despite some elements that I found a little bit silly, I was left overwhelmed from Persona 4 Golden's story, the narrative as a whole was amazing.
The gameplay on the other hand, not really. While the combat system itself is enjoyable, I'm gonna explain later why the gameplay overall is not as good.
The main cast is the best part of the game! Just like in Persona 5, the characters were something like friends to me.
The music took some time to grow on me but I ended up liking it a lot! It's really great!
Also, the art style is very nice and interesting, although the visual quality is a little bit outdated.
Lastly, it's worth mentioning that the dialogue was very funny at times... like, it had me laughing out loud!
Now, Persona 4 Golden has one major issue that affects the gameplay though, the weak dungeon design. The dungeons in this game are literally copy/pasted, empty corridors. For those who've only played Persona 5, imagine something like Mementos.
Another issue is the saving system in the dungeons, it's unnecessarily complicated and it made me lower the difficulty in some parts.
+ Fantastic story
+ Awesome cast
+ Fun combat system
+ Exceptional music
+ Very cool art style
- Poor dungeon design
- Complicated dungeon saving system
Art Style: 8/10
I gotta say, playing Persona 4 Golden after Persona 5/Royal made me realize how much Persona 5 improved upon it's predecessor.
Much like Persona 5/Royal though, Persona 4 Golden is one hell of an experience! One that I hopefully won't forget anytime soon.
If you really want to get into the series but you don't own a PS system, do yourself a favor and don't pass on Persona 4 Golden, you won't regret it, as it's truly one the best J/RPGs in recent memory... And probably one of my favourite games.
Best persona saga game:)
Great story, twisted point in ending. Gameplay is cool when collecting persona.
