    This mind bogglingly well polished game should grace the shelves of any self-respecting JRPG enthusiast.

    Every once in a while, a game comes along that is so well done, and leaves you with such a good feeling upon completing it, that it makes reviewing it extraordinarily difficult. Persona 4 is one of th...

    Best of the Best

    Rated on March 04, 2012 by Lucky_Krystal

    It's a shame that, four years after this game is released, I'm just now picking this game up. Persona 4 is a must have for any JRPG fan. It's engrossing story, touching and hilarious moments, great ch...

    ATLUS does it again with Persona 4. It's fun, stylish, and engrossing. Any JRPG fan would do well to give it a try.

    Fans of Persona 3, rejoice. An upgraded sequel!

    Rated on August 20, 2009 by bubbleboyii

    I'm going to cut this review short and focus solely on the changes they've made from Persona 3. Persona 4's an interesting game. It does almost everything better than its predecessor, Persona 3. Le...

    As good as it ever was, without the handgun shots to the head of course...

    Rated on August 28, 2009 by accharbs

    I have to admit that I did kind of miss the cocking of the handgun and blowing my psyche brains out before every battle scene like in P3 but the polish that they added to the new fight system totally...

    Best RPG, hands down

    Rated on September 01, 2009 by Pol1amorou5

    Persona4, this game had an amazing storyline that kept you guessing for a good while, and the battle system actually took some thought and skill, it wasn't just pressing buttons until you win like a l...

    A great addition to a legendary series.

    Rated on September 04, 2009 by system_go

    Sadly, nowadays the words unique and uncommon are often mistaken for one another. Banalities are acclaimed as gems while the true ground breaking games are shunned by critics and gamers. This happens ...

    A unique adventure with a special twist. *long review, some spoilers included*

    Rated on September 10, 2009 by weedman1985

    Despite what I'm about to say in this review, P4 isn't a bad game. It's very entertaining and is definitely worth your money. The story behind the game is simple yet intriguing- you are a nameless ...

    Persona 4 is a near flawless RPG, that leaves nothing undone, and will more than just satisfy players

    Rated on April 08, 2012 by bomberfan14

    Playing Persona 3 for the first time was pretty amusing, since it was so different than anything I had ever played. However, it wasn't until I played the sequel, Persona 4, that I realized the awesome...
