December 11th, 2008, 14:39

You might look at this metareview's title and think we've made a mistake. No one makes PS2 games anymore. Not so, and as any RPG player worth their elixir knows, Atlus has been prepping the latest in its acclaimed Persona series for release on the last-gen system. Now it's here, and the reviews praising everything from its characters to its gameplay and voice acting as best-of-breed are absolutely glowing. (In the sense that they're really good, not "turn off your monitor and back away slowly.")

Game|Life (100/100): "The truly stunning thing about Persona 4 is that it just doesn't have any glaring flaws. Even though it doesn't stand up to the graphics of the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, the clever art style makes up for that. Those who despise reading large blocks of text in games will be pleasantly surprised by the solid voice-over work applied to almost every conversation."
1UP (A+): "What really sets Persona 4 apart, though, is its endearing, relatable cast. "
GamePro (100/100): "I can't recommend this innovative experience highly enough, and from first time visitors to the Velvet Room to jaded MegaTen fanatics, Persona 4 is an absolute must buy."
WorthPlaying (95/100): "Everything from the story to the combat system to the dungeon crawling and Social Links has been improved. Considering that Persona 3 was already an excellent game, Persona 4 is a true standout.
