I'm the deputy reviews editor for Polygon. This means that I play lots of video games and write lots of words about them. It's pretty rad.
Ethics Disclosure:In 2009, I worked as a freelance contractor for Natsume. I edited the translated script for Harvest Moon DS: Sunshine Islands. That's the only video game that has my name somewhere in the credits.
uuuuh Episode 1 didn’t get a 3/10.
Nnnnope, didn’t miss that. I’m glad you managed to get through it so quickly, but that seems to be a rarity judging from other reviews and other people I’ve talked to who have played the game.
I’ve played games across a wide variety of genres forever, and I’ve been a Castlevania fan my whole life.
Persona 4 is frustrating in that way because it’s like…75 or 80% of the way there, but doesn’t quite commit. It didn’t ruin the whole game for me — not even close, which is obvious if you’ve read my review — but I hope they can handle that stuff better in Persona 5.
They make it work better than I would have expected.
Still amazed at what Naughty Dog has been able to squeeze out of the PS3 as a machine. Can’t wait to see what they accomplish on the PS4.
