When you're not in the real world spending time with your friends, you're in the Metaverse, tackling stylized, danger-filled Palaces created by humans' distorted desires.
A simplified focus on stealth adds a new sense of tension to dungeon-crawling in P5--since you're infiltrating each Palace, you'll have to sneak around and ambush enemies in the hopes of not alerting the Palace's master to your presence.
Persona is built around the concept of "One More," where if you strike an enemy with their weakness, you can get one more turn, or pass your turn on to a teammate so they can add to your attacks, but enemies can do the same.
You're not just locked into dungeon-crawling and individual friend hangouts, either, as there's plenty to do on your own in Persona 5: hit the batting cages, play some video games, rent DVDs, get a part-time job, help your friends study for exams--nothing feels like wasted time, because everything gives you some kind of advantage.
How you use your time is all up to you, but the game does demand that you make clear choices of who and what is more important to you--every Palace is on a hard deadline, often with life-ruining consequences for you or your friends.
