Shin Megami Tensei V’s excellent JRPG combat and deeply rewarding customization shine bright, even when it sometimes feels like Persona without the heart.

Shin Megami Tensei V enhances its formula with expansive areas and more ability customization. The result is a mostly entertaining ride, albeit with a few bumps along the way.
