This is not only one of the best RPGs of its generations, this has easily become one of my all time favorite games. Everything from the style, to the combat, the music, the characters, the story. Everything here just clicks with me. This is easily the most refined and fleshed out Persona game to date. It keeps much of the same mechanics as past games in the series while tightening up core gameplay and offering uniquely crafted dungeons compared t... Read More

The game takes a welcome step away from Persona 4. whilst keeping the formula that grew to be the cult hit. It would not be wrong to say that this feels like the game is a step closer to the main SMT line and earlier persona games, with the re-introduction of persona enemies and negotiation, however, the answers for negotiation seems less random than in previous games. The game is beatuiful and only rarely did I become fed up with the long anima... Read More

Great 100%

I'm not really into JRPG's I'm not really into anime I'm not really into dating sims I'm not really into turn based combat despite all that I'm 100% into Persona 5, and it's my favorite game I played last year. That should give you an image of it's qualities. That being said, it's a game you play in a weird way, it's nothing out of the ordinary to stop playing for a month before picking it up again (it's story is quite long). This goes per... Read More

So this was EASILY the longest game I've played, I thought I would never put that much time into a game again… but it was pretty great. Overall I'd say the story was slightly weaker in the end than P4, but the presentation, the streamlining of annoying stuff from the last game, the sweet, SWEET visual style pretty much even everything out. It was just SOOOOOOOO long. I would've given it probably a 9.5 if it was about... 25 hours shorter- but i... Read More

Positive points
Outstanding visuals
one of the coolest looking menus/displays ever
Negative points
Can be slow paced at times
narrative feels a bit overlong in the end

Storyline

The story focuses on the 16-year-old protagonist after he is transferred to Syujin High School in Tokyo, Japan. Staying with friends of his parents, he meets up with problem child Ryuji Sakamoto, the withdrawn Ann Takamaki, art student Yusuke Kitagawa, and a talking, shape-shifting cat-like creature known as Morgana.

During the protagonist's time there, feeling suppressed by their environment, the five form a group known as the "Phantom Thieves of Hearts", working together to explore the "Palace", a castle created by the hearts of people, and steal ill intent from others' hearts to help them: during this quest, they confront adult authority figures opposing them, along with a greater enemy revealed by their activities.
