The game uses turn-based combat as you battle monsters using your basic attacks and personas. Each member of your party uses a weapon that you can find through the story or purchase from the shop. The array of tools includes knives, fans, swords, and other items you’ll discover as you progress.
Many of the enemies you’ll face have a weakness that you can exploit. You’ll perform a deadly group attack, choosing the right set of attacks and stunning all your enemies at once. Attacks and movement during combat are exaggerated, ensuring that you don’t feel left out of the action.
Compared to the PlayStation Vita version of this title, Persona 4 Golden has updated textures that still retain the classic feel of the game’s unique art style. The game is relatively old and is a ported item, meaning your PC can run it smoothly with a GeForce GTS 450 or higher graphics card.
Outside of combat
Aside from the turn-based combat, the story is enticing. The tale follows a young adolescent in secondary school, as the town he recently moved to has a string of serial murders that occur on foggy nights. This mystery soon reveals who the killer is and follows the main character as you and classmates balance school life and the challenge of catching the killer.
The game, however, has no modern quick save feature that has become popular in later titles. This is due to the fact that the original game belongs to the older PS Vita console. The graphics have been lightly updated and perfectly reflect the unique style without compromising performance. Combat is fast-paced and flashy, keeping you in the action when you’re not experiencing a well-written story.
