    God Eater 2 Rage Burst is a fantastic entry in the hunting genre for fans who want deep combat and a good story to keep you invested along the way.

    With a lot of content, God Eater 2 : Rage Burst is a very good Action-RPG game, but it heavily suffers from it's visuals. Looks like it's a PS Vita Port with a few HD textures thrown at it.

    It is far superior to its original PSP version, but it only takes a small step as a sequel. The series needs to take a leap if it wants to compete. Fans should definitely pick this up, but newcomers would be better off testing the waters with God Eater Resurrection first.

    God Eater 2: Rage Burst proves that without a shadow of a doubt, the series deserves a home on the console. The great depth, compelling combat and interesting enemies provide an fantastic counterpoint to the Monster Hunter brand, while also providing an exciting new sandbox for players to explore. Unfortunately, there are plenty of shortcoming associated with mediocre port work that prevent this iteration from fulfilling its full potential.

    A good action RPG with a great customization system and fun battles. But God Eater Rage Burst can be repetitive and it has a poor technical section.

    The story is mostly just window dressing for a mission-based grind-‘em-up.

Nintendo fans, out ofFor anyone interested in the monster-hunting genre and is considering buying this game, ignore the negative scores. Nintendo fans, out of salt, have decided to bash this game. I have seen the Nintendo community encouraging members to give this game a bad review without even knowing a thing about this series. Truly pathetic and a disservice to the hard work that has gone into this game. The following top reasons:

    1) It wasn't released on any of their consoles.

    2) It is superior to any of the Monster Hunter titles thus far.

    3) is has been far more creative and original than anything MH, and while it doesn't have maybe the depth that MH has, there is plenty to keep users busy and formulate thousands of builds and setups.

    Look, I love any game under the monster-hunting genre, and as someone who has played pretty much everything out there, I can say this game is solid and easily 8+/10.

    Fantastic soundtrack too and beautiful cinematic anime scenes.

    Buy it, and don't listen to the man children fanbase Nintendo has.

    Muy buen juego. Este port de Ps4 es excelente. La saga God Eater va creciendo y me gusta mas que Monster Hunter (gran saga tambien). LaMuy buen juego. Este port de Ps4 es excelente. La saga God Eater va creciendo y me gusta mas que Monster Hunter (gran saga tambien). La jugabilidad es fantastica, la historia esta bien llevada, y los personajes como la hermosa Alisa enriquecen aun mas a este juegazo. Para quienes disfrutaron de Monster Hunter o Ragnarock Odyssey Ace, este God Eater 2 Rage Burst es un juego muy recomendable. Expand

This game (and its predecessors) is every bit as good, if not better, than the MH series. I love MH but am increasingly irritated by Capcom and Nintendo's refusal to publish it on a full blown console. Like most grown adults, the tiny controls of the 3DS cramp my hands with action games. The God Eater series is an adequate, if not superior replacement for those who want to play on a real controller instead of one seemingly designed for children. Expand

    God Eater 2 ha llegado a nuestras tierras un año tarde, pero no defrauda y encantara tanto a los fans del primer título como a los que algunaGod Eater 2 ha llegado a nuestras tierras un año tarde, pero no defrauda y encantara tanto a los fans del primer título como a los que alguna vez hayan pasado la tarde entera cazando monstruos en sus PSP con la saga Monster Hunter.

    La historia es casi inexistente y la presentación es muy mejorable, pero si jugáis con tres amigos más tenéis horas y horas de diversión si os gusta este género, tanto con este como con la remasterización de la primera parte, en un título que nos deja con ganas de más y deseosos de ver un God Eater 3 desarrollado específicamente para la nueva generación.

    Eso si, si vuestra intención es jugarlo en solitario, este no es vuestro juego.
