    Persona 5 Strikers delivers the meaningful story, relateable characters, and complex mechanics fans expect from mainline games but switches the gameplay up to focus on action over time management.

    Persona 5 Strikers is a successful crossover, bringing a true sequel to iconic JRPG. Among other things, it'll allow fans to learn more about the high school band led by the Trickster. With Strikers, Omega Force delivers: it's a demanding title, particularly enjoyable and complete enough to take you on a road-trip for countless hours.

    What can we say except that fans of the planetary hit of Atlus will be delighted to find in Persona 5 Scramble the real sequel they were waiting for, and that even perhaps, they did not expect.

    The Phantom Thieves arrive on PC in a more streamlined form than the main Persona series, but an equally engaging one that's as stylish as it is action packed.

    Early on in Persona 5's development, P-Studio had considered an action-RPG format for the original Persona 5. While the Phantom Thieves debut maintained Persona's traditional JRPG framework, Persona 5 Strikers showcases what could've been in an overall successful manner. There are kinks that could've been worked out, with battles lacking a significant degree of player feedback that unnecessarily inflating the game's difficulty. Strikers' story also takes a little too long to hit its stride, but it does reward players who stick around for the long haul. Acting as a sequel to the critically acclaimed JRPG, Persona 5 Strikers is a fantastic continuation for the Phantom Thieves.

    Persona 5 Strikers is the most impressive effort yet from Omega Force to adapt a third-party license into the Musou subgenre. This probably will not be the title that will change the minds of those that already harbor an intense hatred for them, but Persona fans who are on the fence should honestly not miss out on this game. It feels like a proper follow-up to Persona 5 and the story is surprisingly one of its most outstanding feats. The journey is not a 100+ hour ride like the original, but in exchange, its tight narrative is exceptionally more cohesive and the pacing is significantly more palatable. Smart, sensible tweaks have been made across the board to the usual Musou gameplay template to remain faithful to the spirit of Persona 5 and the game is that much stronger for it. If Atlus were to ever revisit the Phantom Thieves again in a new title, whether it be a mainline or spin-off entry, they better include the characters from Persona 5 Strikers. Please? Pretty please?

    The ingredients might sound tasty in isolation, but the recipe isn't quite right, leaving us with a dish best described as an attractive hotchpotch. [Issue#356, p.100]

    Game is amazing, perfect sequel to Persona 5. Atlus can do no wrong, but they should port P5 to PC come on man.

    Its a spin-off but a good one so set your expectations accordingly or you may be disappointed.
    The same excellent art and music, a solid story and great gameplay....buuuuut, it is still a spinoff so forget about spending time with confidants, free time and other activities that you enjoyed in P5/P5R (also, no turn based combat, its a hack and slash (with some minor RPG elements mixed in) game set in the P5 world, be aware of that).
    Overall it is a solid game and, hopefully, it will show Atlus that PC users also want their dose of the Phantom Thieves resulting in a Persona 5 Royal port (hey, a man can dream!)

    Really great sequel, the combat is great and they implemented Persona 5 mechanics way better than I thought they would. The combat is moreReally great sequel, the combat is great and they implemented Persona 5 mechanics way better than I thought they would. The combat is more complex in Strikers but it lacks when compared to everything else in P5. No social links, shorter dungeons, simpler story with less characters, etc. But if you were a fan of P5 you'll love Strikers as well. Expand

    Persona games usually consist of character stats development, time management, relationships, dialogues, combat and story. Strikers offersPersona games usually consist of character stats development, time management, relationships, dialogues, combat and story. Strikers offers only half of the features. There are no time restrictions- you can just jump in and out of Jails as much as you like. There is no way to improve your character social skills- make him braver or smarter. Thus, you will not get the satisfying feeling "its good my character is charming enough to choose this dialogue option". Lastly, there are no relationships. Nuff said, you got all these cute girls around, but you can't date even one.
    So, the game offers you a middle of the road story and long dialogues with zero impact on plot development. The only thing that feels fun is combat. But as soon as you kill another boss, you get 10 minutes of dialogues and proceed to the next Jail. Unlike in original p5 where you got a week of free time to hang out with your girlfriends and have fun.
