Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled high school students - the protagonist and a collection of compatriots he meets in the game's story - who live dual lives as Phantom Thieves. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high schooler - attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self”. The game's heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective masks and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.

Special shout out to this game's OST. The music in this game is one of its best features (in my opinion).
PROS: The entire game especially the soundtrack.
CONS: Please stop telling me to sleep (If you know what I mean)
In short, fan of JRPG AND ALRIGHT WITH TURN-BASED MECHANICS? ADD TO CART NOW!
I myself had never played a Persona game before this one. I was into the other three series more.
When I heard that the PS4 was getting, I thought it would be time I finally saw what the Persona series had to offer.
In a nutshell, the game is great! I will try and break it down but keep it brief.
Gameplay: 10/10 - This is a more traditional turn based RPG. What i mean by turn base is that your party controlled characters and the "enemies" that you encounter take turns taking actions during all enemy encounters. The battles are paced well, the controls are are tight and responsive. As you progress through the story, there many side quests to partake in. These side quests will sometimes help you gain experience for your character. The best part of the game is that you never feel like you're level grinding for the sake of getting stronger. As you move through the story and do the side quests, you will level up. Of course if you want to level up, by all means, it's up to your style of gameplay.
Graphics: 10/10 - The game itself has a completely anime inspired look to it. The characters and enemies are all well drawn, and the environments make you feel like you're in Japan.
Sound: 10/10 - The whole soundtrack has a nice Jazz'y feeling to it. It's not your typical sounding Japanese RPG. It definitely has the most engaging battle theme.
You can replay the game after you beat it. The best part is, you get to keep your current level, so in essence, you can tear through the game. This is mostly for the side quests... to complete different ones to see different aspects of the story. It's a nice touch.
The characters are charming and memorable. The story makes you want to keep playing until you see the end credits. At the end of the day, what we want from the game is entertainment, and this game provides it in spades. When I finally beat the game, I felt a sense of accomplishment. I also felt a somber feeling... but like great tv shows and books, we move on. I now patiently wait for Persona 6... I'm just hoping it's release before 2020.
Having never played a Persona game before, this was a very new type of game for me. The stylistic anime graphics are great, and the game is quite fun, although some of the core mechanics are very grindy. I have spent way too much time playing it. There's also a very jazzy music track that will get stuck in your head.
Some parts of the game seem very Pokemon, but with more RPG elements. The graphics lag sometimes, and I noticed terrible frame rates walking around in places. That being said, most of the graphics are just awesome manga style stills and cutscenes anyways and it the lag didn't really impact my experience of the game very much.
The best part of the game is actually the non-fighting part where you focus on character development and have to carefully plan your time out. I really enjoyed how the game is broken into two very different styles of time-management and RPG gameplay.
