GO Critic: "Very few fighting game franchises really endear themselves to me, especially given that many of them require quite the time investment to even get to be decent at it, much less great. That isn’t to say there haven’t been some, however. The Mortal Kombat franchise was one I frequented back when it was just a trilogy, and I’ve followed the SoulCalibur games since its beginnings. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Persona 4 Arena seeing as how I never really got into Arc System Works’ other games like Guilty Gear and BlazBlue. Despite that, I thought I’d give it a shot since I really enjoyed its PS2 RPG predecessor. My curiosity was rewarded."
