    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.

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

    I played two monster hunting games before playing this, the first one was soul sacrifice (which I for some reason didn't enjoy that much), theI played two monster hunting games before playing this, the first one was soul sacrifice (which I for some reason didn't enjoy that much), the second one was toukiden: kiwami (which I absolutely loved).

    In terms of gameplay, this game is easy to learn and very enjoyable. The only con In this game until now is the dreadful graphics it offers, the graphics on this look like they belong in the ps2 during 2001 - 2002 at most.
    It definitely doesn't belong on a 60$ game for the ps4, the graphics on this game cannot be compared to soul sacrifice and toukiden.

    I also wanna thank the creators for giving anyone who bought the disc version a redeemable code for god eater resurrection, which was a really nice thing to do by them :) .

If you have played Freedom Wars, Toukiden or Monster Hunter this might be a game you like. I'll be honest, I dislike the graphics, it could easily have looked better but gameplay wise this game is great.

    The story and characters are ok. The only I really can't stand is the voices in English. I would have liked it if there was an option to play the game with Japanese voices.
