So Disappointing When Compared to Persona 5
13 November 2019 | by cmayle-27244See all my reviews

I mean there are so many problems that suck any fun I had with this game. First with the positives: 1.Characters-Most of the characters are interesting & have a good arc to them. 2.Story/Plot-The mystery in this game is suspenseful as it was the biggest reason I kept playing this game. 3.Location-Inaba is a quiet, peaceful, & happy town where there isn't any dark gloomy atmosphere like there is in Persona 5. However, the negatives take a lot of the fun away as so: 1.Gameplay-Oh my goodness, what a disappointment. It's a pain to learn & get used to. Plus the enemies (even on normal mode) spam the most powerful attacks that takes half your health away! (Jesus!) 2.Save Points-SRSLY! Only ONE save point in each dungeon & that's at the very end of each dungeon! That's stingy & speaking of stingy: 3.Chest Keys, SP, & Yen-I've never had a game that was so stingy on allowing you to unlock chests, earn plenty of money, & limited SP. This game is the most stingy game I've played ever! 4.Enemies-Not much variety & again, they love to spam the most powerful moves even on the easiest difficulty! This takes all the fun away from the game when I have to restart hours of gameplay! Overall, very overrated & disappointing game. Made me write a serious review on it. This game is average at best & go play Persona 5, it's sooooo much better!
