Was hoping to use the Italian Ebay thing on this for click and collect but no dice. It’s a decent price & I know it’s 100+ hours of content. But I have sooo many games to get done. Haven’t even registered 5 hours on GOW yet!
This is a great deal for collectors, in years to come a sealed copy will make you a fat profit. All Persona games hold a high value
It's long, its a slow burner at the starter but oh boy when this game gets going fudge me ! its good
When does it get going? I'm about to give up. The constant stopping and starting is killing it for me. Though it's jrpg, I don't know what I was expecting.
buy this game right now
Great price
never played a persona game. do i need to play any of the previous games before playing this one ?

No you don't. It makes some references here and there but you really don't have to play the previous ones. You won't regret buying this though. 10/10 for me

Thanks. I've reserved it for pick up after work so hopefully will be an enjoyable game
Just finishing this game now, if anyone is in doubt, then pick it up, best JRPG I've played in years. Also a great price for a physical copy

So... The pace is do a dungeon/palace -> go to school make friends, work on stats, go to mementos, go to bed... Rinse and repeat.

Everything pushes the story on though so the key is to balance all your tasks, the time limits make that a challenge in itself and part of the gameplay.
The only real action or gameplay is really in the palaces or mementos.
If that's what you mean by "when does it get going" then maybe it's just not for you. It's not for everyone, because that really is it.

I'm a massive fan of JPRGs and the persona series but after 140 hours even I'm glad it's over with now, even having enjoyed it. (I enjoyed persona 4 golden more tbh)

Really good narrative though, just expect lots of reading and non-action gameplay.
I usually stuck this on late at night when i didn't want anything particularly challenging gameplay wise. It's just that sort of game.

I enjoyed. A lot won't. 8/10 lol.
Wanted this 6 weeks ago, but was OOS... bought ESO now!

Heat anyway
Only £24.99 on the PS Store for the game sharers out there

I think I prefer westernised RPGs focusing on real time, unfortunately this isn't it. Suppose I could always come back to it now and again. Monster hunter is more like my type, enjoying the heck out of that.
On the fence of buying this God of War or Burnout paradise

God of War is the best game I have ever played.

I’ve been looking into getting Monster Hunter but was reading about a “deep learning curve” which has really put me off.
Fantastic price! Kept it’s value for months and even started off as a rare total! I however own the collectors edition.

Fence? What fence? God of war knocked that fence down and decapitated burnout. Hope that helps.

Out of those three, I'd say this and God of War are must haves, and you should probably prioritise this and get it at this price while you can - next time it goes OOS it might not come back, and it's not likely to get much cheaper if it holds its value as well as previous games in the series, whereas God of War is going to be available for a while and will get cheaper.
Heat given as I have actually achieved my lifetime ambition of seeing this game in stock at an Argos within 100 miles of me. The previous 4000 times it was posted were all false dawns.
Sitting here smugly with my Take Your Heart Collectors Edition. Persona 5 is an awesome game, an example of the JRPG at its finest with Atlus now overtaking Square Enix as the developers leading the way in JRPG's.

To describe Persona 5 game mechanics it is part dungeon crawler (Similarities to Dark Cloud, Rogue Galaxy, Dark Chronicle) part turn based combat and monster collecting like Pokémon, part life simulator (The Sims) and part visual novel (Steins Gate, Hatoful Boyfriend). But all of those mechanics work in tandem with one another and nothing has been added arbitrarily as a gimmick or fodder.

For instance the more monsters you collect the more attacks you have available to you but if you cultivate your relationships with your friends they bring in their own set of 'buffs' to the combat element, They may take a fatal hit for you, double your prize money, make it easier for other monsters to be captured, Withstand a fatal hit with 1hp remaining

The art direction is astounding with the menus pulsing in a hypnotic rhythm to a jazz, funk, pop fusion soundtrack. The setting has always been a tad nondescript in the Persona series. Persona 3 and 4 could of based in Sunderland and it wouldn't of made to much difference to the plot. But this time Persona 5 has chosen Tokyo and has carefully lovingly recreated a select number of streets and locales.

Like Fallout 3 it takes a while to get the mechanics and get settled in to the story and setting but once you do it doesn't let you go and you are in for the long haul.

Ive been looking at this for a while. Im an old school turn based ff fan. How would i get on with this??
Great stuff, I've had a bit of frustration with Argos as they let me reserve this game twice and when I went in on the date specified by them all i got was a look of confusion., no stock and no reservation in their system.

I've made sure to order from a local store that has stock and can collect today but thought i'd put it out there for those that can't get to a store with stock available now as might save you the same frustration

Combat is pretty similar. But as said above a little more pokemon esque than final fantasy i.e you collect different personas/monsters that have different abilities. But yes, combat is turn based and much in the same likeness of older FF titles.

I would say you would get on quite well with it. The actual combat is near identical to Final Fantasy so everyone is British about it patiently waiting in the queue for their turn to club someone around the head. However unlike the older FF games the fights are not random encounters you see a large enemy on the playing screen and when you make contact the fight then begins. Like FF13 or Eternal Sonata. You can choose to make use of a basic but does the job stealth mechanic to get a free set of hits in as well. But if you are caught off guard then the enemy gets a free turn. But there are also other variables to consider such as how the friendship confidant system can passively, at will and randomly affect the combat

In terms of the story Persona loves its symbolism and Jungian psychology it is a bit on the nose at times but it adds a layer of depth to the narrative. Also Persona games in my view like to take the extra ordinary and apply it to the ordinary. So whereas many of the Final Fantasy games paint there worlds as mighty vivid kingdoms that could only exist in fiction, Persona seems to revel in the mundane and the same applies for its characters as well but that is what makes more relatable and easier to support. The early game is a bit heavy with tutorial and is padded out a but before you are thrown in to anything meaningful with the actual game mechanics, but when you get past that, there is a lot of game to play.

Thanks for the heads up. Ordered and picked up a copy yesterday. Used Topcashbacks £2.50 Bank Holiday bonus to make it even cheaper.
