Persona 4 Golden PS Vita
From the Manufacturer
Following in the footsteps of Persona 3 Portable, the second highest rated PSP game of all time, and based on Persona 4, one of the most beloved ATLUS titles ever, P4G delivers an enhanced and expanded portable roleplaying experience. Visuals have been beautifully remastered to take advantage of the vibrant 5" OLED display. The game's aural presentation is better than ever, with 1.5 times the voiced dialogue of the original release. A new online dungeon rescue feature allows users to call on other players for assistance when they are about to die in the TV world. P4G is also overflowing with new content: new Personas to collect; new story events along with an all new character; stunning new anime cut scenes, which include a new opening animation with a new song from master composer Shoji Meguro; a host of fan suggested tweaks and changes, and much, much more! Persona 4 Golden is far more than just a handheld version of an all-time classic: it's the best way to experience it yet!

Without getting into spoilers, you basically choose just about everything that your character avatar and team accomplish every day. This leads to some pretty interesting choices because you won't always be able to do everything that you want to do in a day, and depending on the game day, you may not have a chance to do something the next day. The "best" choices aren't always obvious and you will not be able to do everything possible on one play through. While new game plus sometimes feels like an artificial way of extending some games in the Japanese genre, I found myself eager to start up another play through just to try a bunch of different things that I didn't get around to in play one and see if there were any other secrets that I missed.
Gameplay itself is pretty tight and good. The combat is fairly comfortable if you've ever played a Final Fantasy game or any other typical RPG, with some interesting twists on how "spells" work. The crafting system for your abilities is pretty fun and you can make some interesting new combinations. Defeating the enemies takes some thinking on harder difficulties and it isn't a cake walk if you are playing on a more difficult setting than the medium one.
The day to day "role playing" is pretty great. A friend once said to me that this game was a Japanese high school simulator for much of the time, and I wondered how that could even be fun. As someone well out of high school, I wasn't sure that I would find this anything other than silly/tedious. I was happy to find that I was wrong and my initial expectations were way too cynical. The characters are all well done and voice acted and you find yourself actually liking them quite a bit. There's a great mix of comedy and seriousness that makes the game entertaining to run through. Even the side characters are pretty interesting, and your school and home life end up being fun to play through when you aren't working on the main story quests.
The other technical aspects of the game are great too. For a Vita game, the graphics and animations look nice, and the soundtrack is very good. Voice acting and animations link up well, and there are a few "anime" style cutscenes here and there that are mercifully short, but seem to fit the story pretty well, and play smoothly.
My limited complaints and caveats to the game would be that combat can get a bit repetitive once you've figured out your optimum builds and spells. The journey to that point is pleasurable, but there comes a point where if you find a really effective load out, battles will play out quite the same each time in a dungeon set. However, I can't think of any role playing game where this wouldn't be an issue if you've mastered the system, so it is what it is.
My other quibble with the game is that some types of trophies are locked behind new game plus or require highly specific choices in order to complete. I personally don't care too much if I platinum a Playstation game, but folks that are looking to complete achievements may balk at the need to complete the game multiple times to tick the boxes.
None of my complaints take away from the fact that this game deserves high praise and is one of the best games available on the PS Vita. There is way more than 20 dollars worth of enjoyment in this little cartridge and even if you are not that keen on Japanese style role playing games, this game belongs on your must play list. If you do enjoy JRPGs, then this is a no-brainer.
If I absolutely had to rate it, I'd say it should get a 90-92 on the 100 scale. It's not perfect, but it's a great experience and one that I'm glad that I took a chance on.
If you enjoy RPG's - get this game.
If you enjoy JRPG's - get this game.
If you love and appreciate thorough and extensive story lines, deep immersion in characters and dialogue options, and tons and tons of player choice, various activities, and both action and social experiences - yep, you guessed it... get this game.
P4G is the ultimate way to play Persona 4 as it adds additional characters and story line depth. Additionally, the game itself is astounding. I easily put in 57 hours into my first play-through and I am preparing to give it a new round in New Game Plus.
The battling system is extensive and reminiscent of Pokemon. The social link aspect is hilarious, captivating, and ridiculously enjoyable. The amount of player options and choices is ridiculous. I really can't praise this game enough. Furthermore, the menu's and overall aesthetic of the game is of the highest quality. The graphics and animated cut scenes and, in my opinion, the voice acting is excellent as well.
I've been gaming for over 18 years now and P4G is without a doubt in my top 10 favorite games of all time.
