    From its captivating music and memorable story to its gorgeous style, every aspect of the game seems to mesh together and work incredibly well. Each piece builds up and compliments the next, until the game is justified in standing atop the RPG genre as royalty.

    Persona 5 Royal was already the best version of one of the greatest JRPGs, and it has gotten an excellent PC conversion that is a joy to play on Steam Deck and PC. With the inclusion of all prior DLC from the start and support for higher frame rates and multiple control options, Persona 5 Royal on PC is absolutely essential. If you held off on prior console versions of Persona 5, your wait has been worth it.

    Persona 5 Royal is quite frankly one of the best RPGs ever made, and now that it can be played portably you have no more excuses.

    Persona 5 Royal makes the leap to PC with aplomb. There’s a decent suite of options including rebindable controls and resolution scaling, but it’s not quite perfect. Keyboard and mouse leave a small amount to be desired and the UI looks awful at resolutions below 1080. Still, if you’re looking to play one of the most stylish and fun JRPGs around, PC is the perfect way to experience it.

    Persona 5 Royal is one of the greatest games of all time. With it on PC, we now have the definitive version of it ready to take our hearts all over again.

    Endlessly slick, the battles and story are a joy to play through. No turn-based JRPG feels as good as this.

    One of the best JRPGs that, despite the long play time, delights from the first to the last second and surprises again and again.

    The 90+ hours i spent on this game were all worth it like every minutes are worth it , there is so much incredible things in this game that iThe 90+ hours i spent on this game were all worth it like every minutes are worth it , there is so much incredible things in this game that i think it's more relevant to point the single thing that isn't good in my opinion : the dates , like the romantic ones, if you play the game as an adult you can either date a minor and so it's erk or you can date an adult but since your character is a minor you make the character you like the erk one , it's a lose/lose situation and it's kind of weird whennyou think about it but still it's THE only low of this game even with that it's the best game i've player in a long time Expand

    Steam bought it for the first time, the previous PS4 game time was 200h, P5 was the first in the world, and P5R was a god!

    P5R is a miracle -- rated M for masterwork. No story has ever carried my imagination farther than P5R; no other video game has ever reachedP5R is a miracle -- rated M for masterwork. No story has ever carried my imagination farther than P5R; no other video game has ever reached such high emotional peaks or such deep psychological depths. P5R makes video games feel alive again, and it makes me feel alive again. The ultimate narrative experience, P5R sustains exhilaration for over 100 hrs, asking you to simply take your time as you develop a beautiful friendship with the Phantom Thieves and learn more about yourself, in the end, wondering how a video game could take your heart. To quote my friend who bought me the game: "I have a feeling you're going to really like this game." Expand

    It's not that good of a game in all honesty, but I guess the premise is pretty sweet.
