    The true value of Toukiden, and now Kiwami, is the sheer respect and love for Japanese heritage that drips through its atmosphere.

    A really good expansion of the classic action adventure Toukiden for both PS Vita and PS4. A mess of battles, RPG elements and cooperative modes awaits you.

    Toukiden: Kiwami adds on to an already good game with more content, more gameplay variety, and some proper multiplayer that really rounds out this package.

    More like an expansion set than a new game, but with a huge amount of content that justifies its existence.

    If you're aching for a good hunting game on your PS4, Toukiden Kiwami can be the right choice, especially if you didn't have a chance to play the last year's game on PSVita.

    Toukiden: Kiwami has an intricate and expansive system of armour, weapons, mitama and power-ups to keep the gameplay interesting. That said, I couldn’t help but feel that the amount of button mashing was excessive considering the detail put elsewhere.

    Yes, it is bigger than the original Toukiden. And it doesn’t look to shabby on the PS4. But one major problem remains: The core is nothing but an uninspired Monster Hunter clone.

    This game takes the MH formula, sharpens it, and simplifies it (a good thing).

    It's similar to MH in many ways yet differs in many others.
    This game takes the MH formula, sharpens it, and simplifies it (a good thing).

    It's similar to MH in many ways yet differs in many others. Here are my favorite features:

    - Map Gathering: No more needing a specific item to gather some specific resource node(e.g.Like MH --> Bug nets for bugs, Pickaxe for Ores, etc...) This game takes that out of the MH formula and just lets your gather items when you see them. Personally I love it.

    - A complete Encyclopedia in-game: need to know where to get a map item or monster part? If you've found it already it will be here, 2 buttons away, no more constant Googling. It also includes monster weaknesses.

    - NPC Quests: Nice minor feature that makes you work your way up for certain rewards and companion affection (helps with Pool stat buffs)

    - Quicker missions: Not a big deal but when you spend 400 hours then every minute count, this makes farming quests much easier.

    - Secondary Party: If you're farming for a specific item but don't want to get stuck killing the same monster over and over, you can progress to the next chapter and send your NPCs to farm the previous chapters' for materials! Really speeds things up.

    - Tenko Help: Similar to MH's Nyah cats, your tenko can be sent on missions for items, with the added benefit that if you go on a mission on the same map you will help your Tenko gather more mats and he (she?) will help you during the battle!

    - Mitama System: a very flexible gameplay system that sits on top of your weapon-fighting style. The combinations of fighting styles with weapons are huge and easy to understand / pick up.

    - Weapon + Mitama Forging: another layer of end-game gameplay that's beyond the various weapon trees. Think of them as uber-weapons that are worth the investment.

    There's more to add here, but I'll just end by answering that question you've been asking yourself: Will this scratch that itch of playing a MH game on your PS4?

    Why yes, yes it will ^_^ and will surprise you with more!

    It's the only PS4 hunter game out, and very hard to put down! Although it does suffer from being too easy. 10/10 for me personally. I'm happyIt's the only PS4 hunter game out, and very hard to put down! Although it does suffer from being too easy. 10/10 for me personally. I'm happy that something like this has found its way to the PS4, but this genre isn't for everyone. I believe for the average gamer Toukiden would probably deserve a 7/10.

    The graphics are mediocre, whilst the game play - very addicting. Overall the game has a charm to it that can keep you hooked. Japanese voiced with English subs, this aids the mediocre storyline as they are voiced very well in their native language.

    Compared to Monster Hunter, Toukiden holds its own very well. Monster Hunter offers much more interesting combat though. MH is still king of the Hunter games, but if you lack the console to play the Monster Hunter series, Toukiden is a fantastic alternative. As for the future, if the Toukiden series could ramp up the difficulty, work on making the story more engaging and create more diverse game play then they could be king.... Toukiden definitely has the potential,

    Pros:
    Mimata grinding, accessible multiplayer, crafting, decent music and decent story, with tons of missions, giving the player lots of hours in gameplay.

    Cons:
    Repetitive monsters (some of the Oni are amazing but gets too many re-skins), easy gameplay (can be a good thing or a negative depending on the person playing), grindy (again - perspective), better alternative out there with MH if you have the right console.

To be honest, yes, is the same gendre, like killzone and call of duty, fifa and pes.... But its different. You dont have to collect as many items as MH, and the combat has more action, so you can focus on play instead on collecting herbs, honey, bug shells, ... Etc. I really enjoy playing this game, and I hope it becomes a yearly launch. The weak ooint are the graffics, I mean, monsters look great, but the landscape and characters look closer to ñs3 than ñs4, but it doesn't matter when you are into combat. Love it. Expand

The thrill of hunting a monster across different zones and collecting tools/materials to survive is replaced with fighting easy demons in an arena. For this being Omega Force, the combos feel janky and nothing like their Warrior games quality.

    A lot of content was added, but I'd be lying if I said any of it was meaningful or challenging. Just spammed side-missions and different looking demons with the same attack patterns.
