By far one of the most incredible JRPG I've ever played! I absolutely love P5 but P5R fixes all the problems I had with P5. Most of the game is in fact the same to P5 but man all the changes makes it feel like a totally new experience with over 50 hours worth of new content. I love the new characters Kasumi/Sumire and Maruku and I'm a big fan of the newly added music. New areas in Tokyo we're added to explore and hang out with friends. And dungeon wise there's some many new improvements. In P5 I absolutely hated Mementos because it such a slog and very boring to deal with. I had time where I had to take a few days off from P5 but in P5R Mementos is AMAZING. You can now collect flowers and stickers and trade it with a new character named Jose that will give you items and Mementos buffs in exchange. Each new area in Mementos now changes color and music so it doesn't feel like the same repetitive dungeon. There's plenty of new dialogue too for all characters, every time you're done hanging out with a friend they'll call you to talk for a bit. In P5 I wasn't a big fan of Akechi but P5R really made me love his character. There's also a "Thieves Den" which is a hangout area for you to customize and and watch cutscenes and music within the game. It's cool and all but I stopped caring about it 40 hours into the game. The new palace arc is also great. It had very brilliant story-telling that I honestly just wasn't expecting. The only thing I didn't like about this game is I didn't like the ending very much. It was a okay ending but it felt so emotionless and boring, I can confidently say that P5 had a more satisfying ending. I can go on and talk about all the new changes but man that would take time. But I can truly say with a BIG smile on my face that this game goes beyond anything I could've imagined for P5.

Not really played much of this game, did play like the first 5 hours on my cousin’s PS5 when we were visiting Penang in Malaysia because my cousins live there, and all I have to say is holy shit this game is so stylish wtf

Can’t wait to play the rest of the game when it comes to PC

I've played this game multiple times on PS4 and PS5. Such a good ass game. Can't wait to replay it when it comes out on Switch!

My wife is refusing to speak to me again. I keep telling her that I'm speaking to my waifu Futaba, and that we are only theorising our future together. She says I have 4 days to pack all my things.

i wouldn't call it a masterpiece and the story, characters, and writing in general could use a lot of work but it was a fun time playing it
