The Famitsu review score for the first game, Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, was also 35/40.

  • It takes an average of 60 hours to finish the game.
  • While exploring the dungeons tends to be plain, the Persona series charm within them makes up for it.
  • The combat is satisfactory as well.
  • It is fun to watch the interactions between the characters.
  • There are a lot of animated cutscenes and voiced dialogue.
  • The foundation of the game has not changed a lot from the previous title.
  • The system is basically “Etrian Odyssey” with a slightly different feeling to how it plays.
