The perfect game for the PS Vita
I purchased this game on 10/28. I've been enjoying so far what I am seeing. This game is basically a Monster Hunter clone but with a futuristic twist. You are condemned to a prison sentence of a million years just for being alive. Your objective is to do battle with other cities (Panopticons) and reduce your sentence to 0. The game rocks and the soundtrack is awesome. The only deterrent I can see, is that the voice overs are only in Japanese. Personally I don't mind, but that's been a deal breaker for some people I know.
The Hype is real!
Game is not only gorgeous, but it looks to have both excellent fast paced gameplay, and a great plot! This looks to be one of, if not the best game on the vita!
I honestly love this game so much I went out and preordered 2 vitas and 2 copies of this game so my wife and I could play it together. If you're reading this and you haven't yet looked at the trailers and the Japanese videos released on this I would advise doing that. Gameplay looks fun, story looks interesting, character customization looks good, and last the voice modification is insanely amazing. I'm going to try and link the video for the voices please check it out.
A Painful Grind That Won't Save the Vita
As a vita owner I was thirsty for a new game to play on the vita. This was one of the first AAA games to come to the vita in a long time so I purchased it day one, Sadly I didn't look at reviews before I did. This game is a hunting style game but with guns. The only innovative thing that is added is the spiderman web that allows you to go across the level in a fast manor or jump atop a monster. Though that sounds cool, this game asks you to do the same thing over and over without changing it up. What makes matters worse is that the game has no English voice acting, and the translation to english is pretty bad. I can live without an english translation but in the main hub world there are people shouting things in Japanese and announcements going on in Japanese that you cannot understand because they don't give it subtitles, making the game feel like a cheep port and completely lazy! If you are ok with grinding on the same monster for hours on end I would recommend picking it up when it is on sale, but if that does not sound like your thing then avoid this game.
An Amazing Game just for the Vita
The game overall is absolutely astounding. And is the game that will defiantly get some Vita sales. All in all, the controls are based on what you want and the design aspect of the game makes it great. While it becomes a little frustrating after you start CODE 6 missions, you are very much open to many things. But first thing you wanna do is not mess around, if you feel like something will extend your sentence, don't do it. It challenges your common sense and reminds you of your entitlements of life. The story is interesting and original, you have full character customization, you get an accessory (Android/Battle Assistant) that you will be able to customize as well. Keep in mind, unless you are smart, you will will drop (basically die) a lot, but will be picked up by ally AI or your Accessory. I am usually a gamer that does power plays, so I fall into that category very much. You will love this game for its many weapon designs and combat items, there is a use for it all. You also will be getting entitlements, what the game will allow you to do without extending your sentence. The challenge of this game is having common sense. Pick up a lot of the small things, you will need to know to keep decreasing that 1,000,000 year sentence.
This game is so fun. If you ever seen the anime the Attack of Titan, well the fighting is like that. You get to make you own person. Also you get to play in a big party, to hunt for monster. It creative and every one should one should pick up a copy.
Makes me wonder why vita isn't advertised
This game is up to par with some PS3 games which really impresses me. Scratching my head trying to find out why they don't advertise this game. Can't wait till it comes out
I have been looking forward to this
I have been hoping for a western release of this game since it was announced for Japan. I will definitely getting this game along with Soul Sacrifice: Delta and Gods Eater 2 (if it ever gets a western release).
A Must Have
This game had me hooked from the beginning. It truly sells the prisoner / sinner aspect, doing so almost joyously. "You look tired, you should rest" -- and then you're hit with 10 years added to your sentence because you're not *allowed* to lay down. The gameplay is fast and incredible with 4 people swinging around like spiderman and hacking the arms off giant robots. If you own a Vita or Playstation TV, this game is an ABSOLUTE MUST.
A really surprising game
This game has definitely impressed me as I have not stopped playing it yet. The graphics are really good way better than sunset overdrives lol which really says something.
The gameplay is really fast paced and can be brutal at times. Online is really good as well just don't be surprised if you get beaten a lot by Tokyo and hong kong lol.
