    If Persona 5 was about forming bonds with new people and recruiting them for a common cause, Persona 5 Strikers is about taking the Phantom Thieves and proving that the friendship they share is lasting, that it can and will endure any hardship. I think, right now, that message is immeasurably important, and hits harder than a bullet formed from the Seven Deadly Sins.

    Blending an engaging and often thought-provoking narrative with combat that flirts with both strategy and chaos but always remains fun, Persona 5 Strikers is quite simply one of the best action RPGs I've ever played. If you love the Persona series consider it a must-play, but even action game fans that have never touched a Persona game before might want to give it a try. The combat is a far cry from Omega Force's usual brand of mindless hack and slash; in fact, it's totally unique. And alongside the usual Persona 5 flair such as bold visual design and an utterly sumptuous soundtrack, it creates an experience that could well be one of the highlights of 2021.

    Persona 5 Strikers is a brilliantly executed melding of the Dynasty Warriors style gameplay with Persona 5 characters and systems. It delivers a solid story while staying true to the roots of both games. There were some small issues with how some of the systems were set up, the default sorting for the items list for one, and I wish some of the actual content of my P5R saves would have carried over. Despite these minor issues, I had a blast hanging with the Phantom Thieves again and working to make the world a better place. I would never have thought to ask for this melding, but it's a beautiful experience.

    The charm of Persona 5 + the demons of Shin Megami Tensei + the intense hack-&-slash-action from mosou = a damned strong sequel. Because against all expectations, that's exactly what Strikers is: Persona 5-2!

    Persona 5 Strikers is a true sequel to Persona 5 and a real gift to fans of Atlus' masterpiece.

    Persona 5 Strikers nails the atmosphere perfectly and doesn’t make it feel like you have to review everything beforehand. It succinctly lets you know that the areas you’ll explore are larger and you may have to do a little more research to prepare, but your team has your back. Granted, it is something that will be best enjoyed and appreciated by those who know and love these characters. But overall, Persona 5 Strikers is a fantastic fusion of what the Persona and Musou series have to offer.

    The best Dynasty Warriors game so far is still barely competent compared to other action games but for those seeking more Persona 5 this is a fun, if trashy diversion.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I got this game early because I pre ordered the deluxe version. I have to say the Jails are so neat! The villains are top notch as you’d expect and follow nearly the same formula as exploring a castle. I was worried the game wouldn’t strike me since it’s got the dynasty warriors vibe to it. I’m glad to say I love it though and seeing these characters back is a great way to start the year off! Even if you’re slightly skeptical about this game, I’d say try it. I really thought I wouldn’t love it but here I am. It retains the P5 charm and while sure, loses some features, it also gains a lot too! It’s a worthy sequel and one I’ll keep coming to. Expand

    I love persona 5. I think p5s is a fun and worthy sequel for p5. But I think it may not be as good as p5 itself.

I played the original persona 5 and its one of the most satisfying jrpgs in the decade. This game basically continues the story of that game while adding a new battle system and new gameplay elements. Everything about it like prety much in this game. Persona 5 was for me way to long, this game’s length is slightly shorter but i feel like ill put way more hours than the 40 hours they said it takes to beat because the dungeons can be confusing and take a awhile to figure out where to go and the grinding will add lot more hours to the gameplay. I Really like this and any rpg fan should play it. Only thing i didnt like was that the battle system can be confusing and take awhile to get used to, also the story is a little more complex this time so far in the game little hard to follow sometimes. Really amazingly made game. Expand

The story is boring, too much text to say nothing. I cant recommend it to anyone, but specially if you are a persona or SMT fan don't buy this. Expand
