The most well-received PS Vita game to date?

With Atlus set to launch Persona 4 Golden in North America tomorrow, we’ve gathered up all the reviews that have been popping up on the web over the past few days. And, as those who’ve played the PS2 version might have expected, it’s so far looking to be the most well-received PlayStation Vita game to date.

Find the full list of scores below.

    Very nice :) Glad they did it justice. 

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    Definitely getting this.

  • nyobzoo

    nice, just waiting for my Golden Edition to arrive

  • SprintsMcGee

    Hope my preorder comes in tomorrow so that I can play it on my way to Florida. 13 hours of Persona 4!

  • Rezar

    I’m picking my copy up Wednesday.

  • well deserved 

  • Sevyne

    Totally deserves the great reviews/scores.

  • Kazziyan

    Now give me a Persona 3: Silver.

    •  Nappa: I GET IT!

    • Niyari

       Persona 3: The Ace

    • I don’t think its going to happen, even though I’d welcome it. They already made Persona 3 Portable, which you can play on the Vita, and they added P3 FES to the store via PS2 Classics.

      So, technically, you can sorta play P3 all you want on the Vita. Like I said, I’d gladly welcome a P3 for Vita, or even an HD remaster for PS3. Although…I’d kinda like them to work on a new Shin Megami game, instead of making another version of P3….

      I suppose I’m torn lol.

      • Kazziyan

        Yeah, probably not. ;o;

        I guess the fanboy within me just wants a final definitive portable version of P3. Unfair P4 gets it. xD


  • Congratz, Atlus… I’ll be picking one up next year(Europe date)…

    • FaithlessMr

       Same here :) Can’t wait! I’ll get a Vita for this game as well when the time comes.

  • TimesTicking

    Buying a Vita just for this game :D and few others of course, mainly because of PS+ Vita XD

    • Same. Well, I bought mine the other day in anticipation of this.

      Tomorrow will be an epic day. Persona 4 Golden and free DL copies of Gravity Rush and Jet Set Radio. Gotta get a bigger memory card.

      • Will you do a review too?

        • Probably not. I’d love to if I had the time. But between updating the site and my other responsibilities, I hardly have the time to even play very often, unfortunately.

    •  True dat!

  • FaithlessMr

    Not sure if Gametrailers will have a video review up for this one or not, I’m asking around and trying to figure that out ;) But they are kinda reluctant on reviewing Vita games because they haven’t come up with a good way to capture some footage just yet.

    • I expect them to review the game, but it might be a few days late. They tend to take longer with RPGs, which is to be expected. I don’t always agree with the scores they give, and sometimes they have spoilerish footage in the reviews (very annoying), but I do respect the reviewers opinion.

      (I do really enjoy the GT show – Pop Fiction.)

      • FaithlessMr

        Hmmm they prolly aren’t doing a review for this one, or so I was told. Unfortunately they do believe that since they already have a review for the PS2 version, they don’t need to go the extra mile and record a “over the cam shoulder” review. Shame :/

        Aww yeah, Pop Fiction is one of my favorite shows. And Retrospective. And Hey Ash What you Playing, Angry Video Game Nerd and Mega64, but these aren’t GT originals. Love ’em still :D

        • I’m a big fan of Mr. Rolfe. (AVGN)

          Shame they don’t plan to review the game. =(

          • FaithlessMr

             I’m a big fan of his myself! I love his horror movie reviews as well.

  • PrinceHeir

    now can we get Persona 2 Eternal Punishment Remake PSP for PSN please!!!!!

  • zakou

    Not really trusting reviews but i figured this will be the best PSVITA game so far, for jrpg fans and not only but obviously there are alot better games on vita not sure if out yet but at least in Japan.

    • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

      yea, bringing a slew of them back with me to good ol’ Germany

    • It’s one of the best period. In my opinion. =)

      (Nice to see you posting again. I might just be missing your comments or something, but it seems like you have not been around as much?)

      • zakou

        Yupp i’m not commenting as much, due to lack of interest in recent gaming news.

        I mean, the only games that im super hyped about and want day one are like three games xD “Tales of Xillia, GtaV and Lightning Returns” there is more like the new Disgaea game but i’m not even done with Disgaea 4, not to mention GT5 and other 1000+ hours games lol.

  • SMT

    for sure, this is best game released for vita until now.
    i hope to get the Eu release soon :)

  • jebara_92

    What’s with all the unrelated videogames in the back ground of the pic?
    Anyway, I’m exited for this,although I’m kinda worried of how Chie will sound, from what I’ve seen the new voice terrible.
    I know some fans claim otherwise but I’m not seeing it..
    But I’m getting this despite that, gonna borrow my brothers that he never uses and I’ll play the hell out of it,P4 is my favorite game ever.

  • DrForbidden

    At least this one is region-free and the European release isn’t pushed back to next year…

    • SMT

      i know :), not like persona 4 arena but still maybe we can find something new like the premium edition :p

  • RyougaZell

    Heh… so far I’ve loved the new voice of Chie that I heard in Arena. What I find funny is how people say they liked the previous voice actress. I remember when P4 came out for the first time everybody hated her and said she sounded old, just because they didn’t like the enormous difference she had with Yui Horie. And now everybody likes her? hehehe. Awesome.

    • Kobracon

      Its a long game. Far longer than P4A. What can I say, she grew on me….

  • Kawen Braun

    348 minutes to go… This is the first Vita game I buy. 

  • Kobracon

    Twas never any doubt. Looking forward to reading Destructoid and 1ups review. The 2 few review sites I trust. (well….1up more than Destructoid. I despise Jim Sterling….)
