Persona 4 The Golden AnimationI won’t deny that I approached Persona 4 The Golden Animation with an initial air of scepticism.

Review: Persona 4 Golden

titlePersona 4 Golden isn’t like other RPG games. In fact, I can’t think of anything that comes close to matching the levels of depth and accessibility that are perfectly blended together in Atlus’ masterpiece. Part highschool murder mystery, and part dungeon crawler, Persona 4 sets you out on an unforgettable adventure where you must stop a serial killer and uncover the truth behind a supernatural television channel.
