Although it takes a bit of time to find its groove, once it does, this game doesn't miss a beat. The first time you play through a song, or even a remix of one you've already encountered, it likely will take some time to find the right rhythm, but whether you're playing the game via the Vita touchscreen or the buttons, the controls are tight and responsive. If you miss a note, you have no one to blame but yourself. Luckily, things start off pretty forgiving, and it's a smooth learning curve from there. Just try not to get too distracted by the game's amazing visuals; it's easy to get caught up in the character's dancing and forget to pay attention to the on-screen cues.

One of the more surprising aspects of Persona 4: Dancing All Night is its Story Mode. This plays more like a visual novel, sometimes laying out 20 minutes of plot before ever playing a dance. Though it's hard to imagine a rhythm game having much of a plot, Dancing All Night manages to spin together a complex tale with lots of character development and plot twists. It's hard not to get attached to the game's unique cast and to find yourself anxious to see just what happens next.
