Kind of an interesting debate on the purpose of reviews. If the purpose is answering “is this worth my money?” then mentioning Persona is correct (most SMT newcomers will come from Persona) If the purpose is to evaluate it artistically, then yeah it sucks
Shin Megami Tensei V's excellent JRPG combat and deeply rewarding customization shine bright, even when it sometimes feels like Persona without the heart. Our review: bit.ly/3GO2v1U

Imo it's largely an SEO/hook writing thing. If you can talk about a game that is "botw but with guns," it gets the message across and is a succinct hook for most readers. That being said, agree that making broad generalizations like this is not great
