    . the first boss is about endurance and the second boss hits pretty hard which can be hard to survive if you don't have the right defenses or are new to how smt/persona games work, but after that it just gets easier. if that's where you recall getting stuck, try to power past that, as a truly wonderful tale loaded with an easy going cast and drama in the countryside awaits you.
    It might be. My memory's kinda fuzzy I'm where I threw down the controller. There are other issues too that made it hard for me to get into the game; PS2 games look fairly bad on my TV, for example.

    I'm excited about 5 though. I think it'd make more sense just to attempt that.

    P4G was considerably easier than the original game overall(game was never that hard anyway save for a few "gotcha" moments). Especially late game when the social link benefits really start to add up.

    I'm in the final Palace. It's one of the longest games I've ever played, but it's really addicting. I'd say it's the best game on PS4 right now.

    no shame man. only problem is that you may find yourself enjoying 5 a lot, then wanting to try 3 or 4 since they are the same formula, but may find them mechanically outdated as 5 is refined to hell and back in that regard. best battle system i've ever seen in a turn based game. game is massive and will easily take months to beat unless you devote every free hour you have to it, but it's a mostly great ride.

    definitely, even with its flaws, i can't think of a ps4 game i enjoyed as much as persona 5 besides plants vs zombies garden warfare. undoubtedly the best rpg of this generation.

    So, I'm enjoying it so far. Though the game still only gradually gives you full control, it at the very least isn't as constricting as I found Persona 4's opening hours.

    So far I love how large this world seems, while still being puzzled by how my dialogue choices never seem to lead to a response that makes sense. I will also admit that those who have been critical of the game's visuals may have a point in a certain sense, though they're still pretty much par for the course for games from Atlus. Unpredictable opportunities to Save remain a slight qualm with my thoughts on the game's opening hours.

    Anyway so far I'm enjoying it. Eager to play more.

    Still liking the game, growing impatient by the lack of control though; 6 hours in and the game still doesn't trust me to walk a few blocks to my house?

    Bleh. I had similar issues with Persona 4 and while 5 isn't as constricting, I am similarly losing patience and hoping for the chance to have some degree of freedom soon.

    Really p4 moves at a vastly faster rate. You visit the trail dungeon in this game I believe 4 to 5 times before you're allowed to just beat it. If anything i felt the pacing and hand holding is vastly higher in p5.
    That level of accomplishment when you've finally made it to someones ignore list! Priceless total victory!

    I've only played the first several hours of P4 so my opinion is based solely on that, but P5 so far has given you more control at a quicker rate than 4 did. I know at this point in Persona 4, I wasn't even sure if the game would ever give me full control.

    5 at least gives you just enough to let you know that more control/exploration is coming, but I remain impatient by how long it's taking. I know there's a sorta cultural difference to Japanese vs Western game design (Japanese tends to hold your hand a bit more in the opening hours while Western likes to give you full control as soon as possible) but the Persona series seems especially excessive in this regard, I feel like.
