    Persona 5 Strikers is a fantastic sequel to one of the best JRPGs of all time. It’s less of a Warriors game and more of an action RPG with fun, fluid combat, great characters, and an excellent story and soundtrack.

    Persona 5 Strikers is my favorite spin-off game in the series. It takes the concepts of one of my favorite games, puts them in a new genre, and has a story that goes above and beyond what was expected from it. Best of all, for those who thought Persona 5 was too long, Persona 5 Strikers is presented in a much more concise package. I hope ATLUS revisits this style of game again because this is a great framework as is and it could only improve further with another attempt to iron out some of the flaws. Koei Tecmo’s adaptation of Persona 5’s aesthetic is quite impressive, they really outdid themselves.

    Persona 5 Strikers proves to be a beautiful and worthy sequel to the original game, with the cast, story and combat all shining in old and new ways. [Issue #52 – May/June 2021, p. 67]

    Persona 5 Strikers is a slick and stylish spin-off that manages to successfully combine a surprisingly strong story with some satisfying Musou-inspired hack-and-slash action. There are a few issues here and there, with some necessary grinding at points, slight difficulty imbalances and a camera that can be a bit of a pain during busy battles but, overall, this is a thoroughly entertaining action RPG that comes highly recommended.
  5. Persona 5 Strikers is probably the most innovative Musou game in years, thanks to its closeness to the core “Persona” formula.
  6. 75
    Persona 5 Strikers is a good action role-playing game, but an imperfectly polished combat system and the absence of some of the series' core elements make it a must-buy only for fans of the Phantom Thieves.

    Persona 5 Strikers is as flashy as Persona 5, featuring the same gorgeous artwork and animations, great dialogue, and brilliant music. It unfortunately lacks the meat on the bone that made the original such an addicting experience to its loyal fanbase. It also provides little incentive for newcomers to play it despite its egregious length being drastically cut down.

Now, i was not a big fan of the arena type spin offs, so i was on the fence for this one...But by god i am so glad i did decide to try it out. I'm so in love with these characters, coming from persona 5 royal ofcourse so i do know what the story us is about. The gameplay is fluid, action packed and sometimes you do really have to think very fast in all the action going on. Alot of what was great in the first persona 5, is still embedded in this one, albeit some features are missing..but that is not a deal breaker for me.

    Yes, it is very reccomended you play persona 5 first, if you dont want to then just catch up on youtube. Great fun, honestly :)

Huge Persona fan and just been playing a few hours and I absolutely love the cast!! It reminds me of Persona 5 and bringing the cast back together with some additional new members has been fun!

    I am few hours in and its been fantastic! Literally my only complaint is the loading times every few cut scenes! Otherwise it's a fantastic PERSONA game and I thought I would hate it considering I don't like Dynasty warriors... This game is a Persona style! I LOVE IT!

El juego en la versión de Switch funciona generalmente bien, aunque gráficamente es muy pobre. Por el estilo gráfico podían haber mejorado mucho la calidad general visual del juego. Tal vez sea baja para luego poder con tantos enemigos en pantalla. Para mi es mejor versión que la de PlayStation porque es portátil pero se hecha de menos un poco más de potencia. A nivel narrativo tiene una historia interesante que sin ser una obra maestra es suficientemente interesante para querer saber como continúa. Como la mayoria de juegos japoneses la cantidad información y personajes jugables es abrumadora, tanta que cansa y confude, lo mismo con la duración hasta ahora, no por repetir la misma mecánica jefe tras jefe el juego es mejor, entiendo una duración determinada pero alargarlo a base de repetir la misma mecánica 5 veces pues se hace pesado. Dicho todo esto el juego me resulta entretenido y recomendado. Sitúo mi nota personal en el 8. Pero le doy un 7 por lo que para mi es un pecado, la falta de doblaje al Español. Como siempre los angloparlantes pueden jugarlo traducido y el resto a dejarnos los ojos y en la pantalla de Switch en portátil a la hora ya cansa muchísimo. Entiendo que venga en japonés, pero cansa mucho que los japoneses nos cuelen los juegos en inglés y japonés por que sí a estas alturas de la película y con la cantidad de ventas que tiene en occidente, no lo recomiendo al precio que tiene por lo que para mi es un recorte grave.

I'm not saying the game is bad, but I don't even know who these characters are and if it's a good sequel if we don't have the prequel for the game in the Switch. Expand
