OPM launches its Persona 5 review
The first review of Atlus’ hotly anticipated Persona 5 has arrived in the pages of Official PlayStation Magazine UK, with the publication awarding the JRPG a perfect score of 10/10.
Fans of the long-running franchise will be pleased to learn that this latest installment is an absolute belter, with Persona 5 described by OPM as “the most accomplished, accessible, precocious modern JRPG out there.” In fact, the magazine says it’s not only better than its predecessor, but also tops Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 15.
OPM scribe Jen Simpkins concludes, “Whether you’re a series fan, a JRPG evangelist or a total turn-based newcomer, this is an essential play. Persona 5 is packed with stuff to do, expertly put together and exquisite to the last pixel. An unabashed masterpiece.”
Persona 5 has been a long time coming, with the game originally scheduled for a release in fall 2014. However, the title was delayed numerous times, including having its February 2017 release window pushed to spring. Japanese gamers have been playing the game since September last year, although westerners will finally be able to get their mitts on the title on April 4, 2017. Stay tuned for the Persona 5 review on PSU shortly.
