    For all its missteps as an action-RPG, it is simply flawless as an example of how to make a Vita experience work. Judicious use of touchscreen controls, beautiful visuals, a smartly broken-up mission structure and eerily swift loading times makes this the gold standard for Sony's portable.

    This game in my opinion is one of the best on Vita, and if you like Monster Hunter you'll probably like this game to, it even is a littleThis game in my opinion is one of the best on Vita, and if you like Monster Hunter you'll probably like this game to, it even is a little funner that MH if your going solo because of the slightly faster pace, and has a little more grasp on a story than MH does and the charm of this game sets itself apart from MH in all the best ways. Even people who are not fans of the MH style should give this game a try as it brings in the feel of other action-rpg's. If you're playing solo this game does an admirably better job than the MH series. Its the multiplayer where this game truly shines, and makes use of the differences in classes, and you'll have a blast playing it. This game is a must have for the Vita library. A 9.6 Full Review »
