    God Eater Resurrection is both a useful re-entry point for existing fans and the ideal opportunity for new players to get into the series.

    The PlayStation brand has something special in God Eater Resurrection, and developing the franchise even more would be a godsend. With little holding it back, Resurrection makes a strong statement on how the hunter genre should be.

    Despite being a 6-year-old PSP game, God Eater Resurrection looks quite good on the PlayStation 4. While the game does show the odd low-detailed textures here and there, the character designs themselves are well done with smooth animation sequences.

    As a standalone game, God Eater Resurrection is a decent time.

    I largely enjoyed my time with God Eater: Resurrection. Even though it’s a little too padded with filler missions featuring the same roaming enemies over and over, laying into Aragami with massive hammers and swords that could cut dumpsters in half generally makes for some good times.

    A solid game, fun and showing a surprising amount of depth in both its story and mechanics. If you’ve been looking for a good monster hunting experience and don’t have a Nintendo 3DS, this is definitely a game you’ll want to check out.

    There’s comfort to be found in the simple mission goals, but it’s impossible to ignore how repetitive they are--and how outdated they make Resurrection feel in practice.

The new mechanics added more variety to the combat and the addition of online co-op was great. There are a few minor changes that I didn't like, but they were extremely minor and didn't take away from any of the fun. Expand

As a port of a PSP game, and having never played the genre before, I wasn't expecting much. Instead, I've been playing for a month and a half to the exclusion of other games. There are some rough edges, particularly with finding a crafting material in the giant, non-filterable list. Overall though, a little gem of a game, especially if you got it free with God Eater 2.

Making your own character in the universe with a slew of hundreds of weapon combinations to use helps make your time with it more enjoyable. Though the issues I had with the difficulty as well as the super repetitive nature of the game makes it leave a slightly bad taste in your mouth by the end. Playing the entire game through Co-op can help tone down those issues, and if played on the Vita I'd say you could reasonably add a tick to the score as that's obviously the platform this kind of game is designed appropriately for.

    It took 35 hours and it felt like 70.

    I've been gaming since the Atari 2600 was new and am always on the lookout for the next narrative gaming masterpiece. I'd hate to miss out on another Nier due to reviews by people who are only interested in gameplay, simple stories, and graphics. Well, here's a game targeted for them, minus the good gameplay and graphics.

    1. Story.
    It's below-average. It starts out as "save the world from the monsters," then "save the world from the bad guy," and then "save the world and your friends from the monsters." There's no twists in the story that you can't see coming well in advance, and nothing new happens here narrative-wise if you've played any Japanese action game within the last 10 years. Good-story lovers will be disappointed with this one.

    2. World.
    Humanity is supposedly going extinct due to big monsters. You're in a apparently-small group of humans who is fighting back. Who knows if there's other groups. You don't get to see much of the wold and you're primarily limited to your tiny base and the 5-10 maps you repeatedly visit to fight monsters. You very rarely interact with someone not from your base, and when you do, they don't have much light to shed on the world. The world was obviously built for you to fight monsters and not for you to get immersed into it.

    3. Characters / Voices.
    They're not good. The characters don't seem to fit well into the world. They're like teenagers who are full of themselves and think it's cool to fight big monsters with big weapons, regardless of their friends dying constantly. There are a few instances of them trying to deal with hardship and loss, but they're handled poorly and the solution for the most part is to go out and kill more monsters. Voice acting is in English only and ranges from average to robotic to hilariously out-of-place, to bad.

    4. Gameplay.
    It's bad. It's about on par with the 3rd-person action games from the Nintendo 64 era. The camera is horrendous, lock-on is practically useless, lock-on is restricted for guns, guns are nearly useless, control rebindings are very limited, and some buttons perform multiple actions, even though there's other un-used buttons on the controller.

    This is where the game takes a big drop in score for me. Combat is supposed to be the primary reason for playing this game, but it's just bad. This is supposed to be a Monster Hunter clone. I've never played Monster Hunter, but I can't believe that it can be anywhere near as bad as this. I have played Tera online, which is another Monster Hunter clone, and the combat and customization in that game is far better than this. Let me try to cover some of the issues with the combat.

    Controls are sluggish. If you're in an attack animation, don't expect to be able to block or dodge any time soon. You simply will get hit if the monster pulls off a quick attack.

    Difficulty scaling and spikes are nuts. You'll go through the first few levels with ease, never using any healing items, never blocking, and rarely dodging, and then you'll get to your first difficulty spike where you're killed by some unimportant monster. Then it's time to learn how to block and use healing items. Difficulty goes up and down randomly. Some important story-monsters, although huge, are completely easy, while the next standard monster after that might take several tries for you to kill.

    At some point, I realized that attempting to block or dodge every hit was a waste of time. It is much more efficient to constantly attack the monster's weak spot while having auto-healing statuses on (healing while in burst mode and healing from devouring). Though at that point, it became a simple button-mashing game. Why would I do anything else when I was just trying to get through the repetitive combat as soon as possible?

    The missions, oh boy the missions are endless and go on and on forever. I eventually started skipping all side missions and focused only on the story ones. I could tell no difference. They're all the same monster-wise except the cut-scenes in between the story missions.

    Hit boxes are just stupid. Depending on your weapon, it will clip through a monster during an attack, and not hit it. And many monster attacks look like they don't hit you, but hit you anyway.

    Some weapon attacks are just plain stupid. For example if I jump into the air with a spear and press the heavy attack, I dash forward and down, normally over the monster's head, which makes this particular attack useless in most situations. There's another weapon where if you're dashing and attack, you will jump *backwards* and start attacking. Why on earth would I dash forwards and then want to jump backwards and attack?

    I could go on about the poor upgrade system, crafting, item management, graphics, and more, but I'm about out of space. I'm just glad it's over and will probably play a different genre before tryingGod Eater 2.
