Persona 5 Royal allows players to experience the story they already love in a new way without losing any of the beauty from the original game. New and old characters get their chance to shine through and steal your heart, even the ones you never expected to. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and maybe you’ll even feel a sense of justice for the infamous Phantom Thieves in the end. But one thing you won’t feel is regret in picking up Persona 5 Royal, as it’s truly the best Persona title, if not one of the best video games, I’ve ever experienced to date.
The original Persona 5 was already a joy to play; however, this version definitely steps up to the plate and knocks it out of the park. If Persona 5 was a perfectly executed and baked sponge cake, Persona 5 Royal is the same perfect sponge cake... but now filled with lashings of jam and cream. Everything that has been added has been amazingly well implemented. This is a wonderful title, regardless of whether or not it is compared to the original… which is still a delectable sponge cake! The story, characters, music, gameplay, and animation - everything comes together and creates an experience that is the personification of JRPG perfection. Incredibly unique and enjoyable!
What can I say about this game is incredible and unique that makes me believe that it is one of a kind, its world, its music, its dialogues and its characastic characters are incredible. This game catches you and makes you excited about everything around you. The only thing I can say is that it is one of the best games I have ever played in my life and it shows that it is made with a lot of love and effort. The only word to define this game is Masterpiece!!
Persona 5 Royal is a stunning game that takes something which has already captured millions of hearts and makes it even better. This is the quintessential Persona experience. If you're new to the franchise, this game is for you. If you're a seasoned veteran, there is enough new and improved content that this game is still for you.
Persona 5 is certainly not a light endeavour, and Royal’s new additions understandably won’t be enough for everybody to want to go through it again, but for those considering reuniting with the Phantom Thieves, or completely new to the title, Persona 5 Royal is a perfect opportunity and an incredibly rewarding usage of time. Persona 5 already made an incredible mark when it released, and Persona 5 Royal just adds to Atlus’ richly deserved reputation among RPGamers.
It was just another quintessential Persona experience: a wildly, wonderfully fun story-driven game with a story that fails to live up to its own potential and fundamentally misunderstands the core of their own characters. Atlus both made the most of and absolutely squandered the chance to improve upon Persona 5—and honestly? I don’t know what I was expecting.
This can be one of the best JRPG you can ever play. If you didn't play Persona 5 Original before.
Everything about P5 Royal is with updated system and gameplay. Some bad and some has been changed due to new stories been added.
To first timers, this isn't much of an issue. Gameplay changed much easier and faster for those new comers. I don't see much of problem with that.
However, real issue I encountered was frustration playing the Royal.
I think those who already finished the original P5 wanted to see how the additional character fits in with already perfect P5 characters. There was really high expectation of new girl who's dancer name Kasumi(Sumire ;)p)). Well? It really pissed me off and made me angry at Atlus for the first time.
This really showed how not to just add somebody just to sell more copies of your game.
Kasumi is attractive and pretty girl and had very high expectation, but Atlus just didn't seem to know when to utilize her character in this game.
They let you play her very little in the end and decided not let you play her at all until the end.
Yes, of course P5 we already experience who's the final and the real boss is and what memento is for. P5 Royal plays out the same and by the time they let you play Kasumi, you will be just tired to play this long game. your line up for the boss is already perfect and there will be no room for low leveled Kasumi and Akechi fits in. All the items and equipments are already planned out and your mind is already done with this game by the time Atlus let you play her.
Me? I just put her in my bench and never looked back. I skipped through boring dialogues and was hoping to reach March to end the game.
I gave 10/10 on Original P5 and loved the characters and even bought Strikers.
I'm hoping I won't fall for P6 updated version after release of original.
Atlus just doesn't respect those who already purchased first game.
The gameplay is charming and fun, but the characters and story are admittedly shallow and repetitive. The story takes a convoluted, poorly executed turn after the next to last palace, but all in all it is a flashy, light hearted JRPG that is worth a go. The extra content and characters were not particularly interesting to me, but the quality of life improvements are noticeable. I don't quite think that justifies the difference between the two versions, though.
This game might not be for me. It has longest tutorial I have ever seen. After about 30h the game is still telling me what to do. I dig the high school sim style, making connection to people and organizing my time but then comes the palaces and those goofy opponents and boring fights. It was a nightmare.
