Persona 5 Royal has one of the best soundtracks ever created. Seriously.
The comic book stylings of P5R, with anime cutscenes intertwined, as well as the most stylish menus and transitions that exist in video games, make this an absolute joy to behold.
Persona’s evolution over the years has been a lesson for how developers should approach sequels: i.e. fixing what doesn’t work and refining what does. Kudos.
Persona’s dungeon gameplay is as good as it’s ever been in P5R, and its real-world relationship building, life-sim aspects remain faultless. It’s the perfect dichotomy of the two that makes Persona 5 Royal so enjoyable for its 100+ hour duration.
As far as JRPG achievement lists go, P5R’s list is fair, not completely insane, encouraging you to try out everything, while pushing you down paths where you’ll encounter some great content. It’s almost perfect.
