    Freedom Wars may be another hunting game on the Vita, but it's by far one of the best. It screams AAA production with standout graphics, solid audio, unique gameplay mechanics and a fresh story line - bringing them to you in a one of a kind package that only Japan could come up with, but with an execution typical of the Western big shots.

    Freedom Wars has its shortcomings, but I would still consider it one of the top Vita games available.

    Once you get the hang of the complex controls and slight camera issues, you're in for a breathless, exhilarating time staring down giant robots, outmaneuvering your rivals, and rescuing your betters.

    We sure don't have the new Monster Hunter, but Freedom Wars is a good game to keep an eye on. If the premises and the narrative structure of the game had to be maintained at early hours levels, we'd be talking about a true masterpiece. Good game, anyway.

    Freedom Wars delivers an action RPG in an accessible, pickup-and-play, portable package.

    The game comes so very close to being an amazing experience but the gameplay doesn't quite match with its excellent concept.

    Combat is the brightest highlight, though it's still dulled by clumsy controls. Beyond that, the environments are so monotonous as to kill any passion for the thing.

    I love the combat system! It's kind of like a mixture of Monster Hunter (Close Quarters) and Lost Planet (With the grappling hook + gunplay).I love the combat system! It's kind of like a mixture of Monster Hunter (Close Quarters) and Lost Planet (With the grappling hook + gunplay). It runs pretty swell as well. The futuristic setting of...102,014...is intriguing with the religious overtone of the governments/City States, known as Panopticons, do to the lack of resources for each Panopticon maintains and would lead to a overpopulation problem; In which case leads to the reason why you're fighting giant robots and monsters, because the government forced you too! Customization for characters has a good variety of outfits and body like choices for you too make.

    Though there's some issues every once in a while (drop in frame rate, etc.), overall i'm a happy camper to know that i have a reason why i bought a vita in first place after this.

    Freedom wars do jump out and has this catchy feel of God Eater 2 on PSP . It runs very smoothly and the environments seems to be pretty wellFreedom wars do jump out and has this catchy feel of God Eater 2 on PSP . It runs very smoothly and the environments seems to be pretty well done~! If I were to name something special about this game is that it has this Grappling hook thing that Works like a mechanics of a " CLASS " to it. . For example a Defence , Healing, or Offensive. And so is the Melee and Ranged Weapons .Bullet to Short bursts to rockets. Short Swords, Saw-type, Spears.. Pole arms... etc. The Irritating fun of getting Charged for offences was irritating in the beginning and then it gets amusing . I find myself testing all the limits like trying to get myself into trouble. ( Ha, trust me its fun sometimes ) Its environments are Amazingly structured. How should I say? Well. . for gamers : The Gap in the wall... Yes you an snipe from there.
    In general, the Feel of this game although no totally immersive into the story for me, I have lost hours of sleep for this game and several bus stations due to its mechanics. Say maybe I just love Shooting the hell out of these Monsters and then go close quarters like a Berserker when theres no more Bullets.
