    Persona 4 Golden: The PSU Review

    The essential PS Vita game has finally arrived. A snippet from my review:

    Given the PlayStation brand's history as a rich platform for role-playing games and meaningful experiences, it's strange to think that, almost nine months post-release, the PlayStation Vita has yet to receive a traditional Japanese role-playing game. That all changes with Persona 4 Golden, and what a stellar debut for the genre it is. This magnetic journey through social relationships and self-acceptance hits all the high notes of its PlayStation 2 namesake while infusing a wealth of new content and remarkable production values. As a port, Golden positively gleams with polish, but as an RPG, it soars. Extraordinary characters, a gripping narrative, addictive gameplay, and haunting charm that lingers long after your battery runs dry... these are hallmarks of a masterpiece, and while no video game is perfect, Persona 4 Golden comes closer than any game on the PS Vita before it.

    I invite you to click the link above and read the rest of my review, then share your thoughts in this thread. How many of you are excited for this game?

    Sounds really awesome. Lots of content.

    I enjoyed what I played of P3 on PS2 but I did so at a time I was very busy and didn't give it enough time, so I'm very keen to give P4 a proper playthrough and enjoy it at a normal pace.

    Not sure if day 1, but sometime before the year is out!

    An excellently written review!. From beginning to end I was nodding with agreement. This series is indeed criminally underrated and it's a shame that games like these under-perform compared to other RPG's out there. If you have a Playstation Vita I implore you to pick this up!. It's a well worth investment.

    Sucks that some of you have to wait until February 2013. Importing is the way to go if you have the extra cash to go with it.

    Glad that people are enjoying it and finding it helpful. It was a lot of fun to write, and the first thing I did after publishing was jump right back in and keep playing - a rarity when you spend so much time playing one game for review.

    How many hrs you get in?

    Can't wait to play this but dangerously low on cash right now.

    I would pick this up if I didn't play Persona 3 and 4 a lot on the PS2. If you haven't played it though and you're looking for a solid JRPG on the Vita then you can't go wrong with an enhanced remake.
    Thanks to Kwes for the avatar and Sylar for the signature!
