Rated 9 out of 10 by mewshi An odd, but good, RPG-style game
This game isn't an RPG in the normal sense of the word -- you don't level up, there are no experience points. Everything is determined by equipment, essentially. Equipment is, however, upgradeable and craftable, or you can just buy stuff if you want. The bullet crafting system is slightly confusing, and the lack of progression at some points in the upgrade tree (I have been stuck on the same bloody blade for a while, and I would like to at least be able to see what I need to upgrade it) is frustrating. The graphics are among the best I've seen on the PSP, but take that with a grain of salt, since most of what I play are retro-style games or NIS games, like ZHP, Cladun, Valkyrie Profile, etc. The tactical side of the game -- deciding which weapons to use, which bullets to equip, who to take along on a mission -- is extremely well-crafted by the developers. There is no way to completely overpower the enemy, that I have found, which, while frustrating at times, makes beating things up that much more satisfying.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Sofiel Very fun :) worth getting. only 29.99 used.
I was originally intrigued by this game because it looked so much like Monster hunter, and i love monster hunter to death. So i got it, and i immediately felt the similarities. I was worried that i would be comparing the two too much while playing, but that didn't happen. Its very fun and entertaining in its own ways as well. I like our rooms that we get, the terminals are cute to use. Being able to craft different clothes is neat (maybe cuz im a girl). Although there are only a few different styles. And actually the story (with mediocre voice acting) is pretty neat. However my two beefs are, i dont like only being able to movie the camera with the left trigger. (using the right one switches between gun/blade) And speaking of gun, i am not a gun person at all. I suck at shooting for anything. xD. I haven't beaten the game so i can't comment on if i ever got tired of it after a while. But i am still enjoying the game. Which is good news. If you like monster hunter, and that type of fighting them im sure youll like this. (I also just love the opening video :3 )

If you're a fan of Phantasy Star Online (Yes, the older one); you'll love this game.
One major aspect of the game, that, personally, I quite enjoy, is sprint. See, you have your Health, Ammo, and Stamina.
Stamina is used when you swing your sword, jump, or sprint.
Stamina, thankfully, recharges quickly.
Ammo is depleted when you shoot, obviously, but is regained as you use sword attacks. During play, you can switch ammo type, by holding square (At least in the Japanese version) which opens a menu to cycle through, in real time.
I've put quite a few hours into this game already, so, I'm looking forward to seeing what the story is. Pre-ordered.
One, albeit small, con, is there isn't a leveling system. I've seen some other's talking of this. Though, you'll hardly notice, with the changes in weapons, and items that make you "stronger".

I orginall got this game on a whime because i had started reading the manga that come out befor its relaese. The game reminds me alot of monster hunters it feel like the copied the combat style was copied from it and pasted it onto this game. However unlike monster hunters this game has a storyline which can get very addicting do to part of it being a mystery. There are a few things that annoy me about this game 1 they expect you to kill any where from 2 to 4 "boss" aragami in only 30 mins. The other thing that annoys me is the lip sycn does match up with the charcters words or when their speaking. Ive noticed that words will be appearing or you hear them speaking and the charcter is not movingt their mouth at all which can get annoying after some time. This isnt saying the game is bad just has some flaws that annoy me personaly. The game also altentes from a fast pass story line to a slow one which can be a good or bad thing depending on how you view it. All and all this gaem is pertty epic ive played 22-26 hrs on it and still find it addciting. I think its better then monster hunters because it has a stroyline and you are not just killing monster repidily with no new delepoment except more missions.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Nytmare Great game, needs improvements.
I bought this game thinking it was going to be an amazing game. It came a little short. First off if you are a monster hunter fan, don't expect this game to be as challenging. This game is too easy. Adding a story to a game like this was the only reason I played it through all the way. Without it, it would have gotten boring fighting the same 10 monsters. The good thing was that they had subspecies or else it would be super repetitive instead of just repetitive. This game just saved itself from a bad rating because it's only the first in it series. Hopefully more monster and a greater difficulty level would be added later on. I hope that next time Namco Bandai Games, makes sure I get stuck on a mission instead of making me say "This mission again."
Rated 0 out of 10 by FOREVER1 I WAS excited...
I was definitely going to buy this, but now I see that the preorder bonus will only be available to the UMD version? This is thoroughly disappointing. If this isn't fixed, expect the sales number to be halved at least. It's a chain reaction - when I refuse to get this game on my
PSP Go, friends will do the same on their regular PSP's. Therefore for each PSP Go owner that refuses to buy the game on account of the missing content, 3-4 others will do the same regardless of the PSP they own. Think about it. We buy these games in groups to play with friends. Not sure if it's D3's or Gamestop's fault, but someone needs to learn better preorder-related marketing strategies. This preorder type is causing you to lose sales rather than gain them.
Rated 10 out of 10 by SPITANGEL Localized goodness
Im glad this came out for NA. This game was/ IS amazing. Its definitely what i needed. Some of the voices were eh D: BUT i still love this game. The story line and not to mention opening intro song is amazing. The fighting style and aragami are so sick to a degree that i jus wana keep playin it over and over. The people you meet are cool and how many diff ones you can put on your team and their job class. The outfits were sweet and the diff weapon classes and customization's i can do even with the bullets are cool. I love how i could make my character more like me. Even the co-op play is fun :D. Scavengin items and takin down aragami together. Its amazing and i cant wait till the 2nd gets localized too.

Bought for cool cover art; stayed for good game play. Though Gods Eater is in many ways similar to monster hunter, the game has a distinct feel to it. The game will play out with you taking missions and then killing any monsters in the area you're sent to, and then getting some rewards and some money, and cut scenes if its a story mission. The art style is interesting, and the combat has a faster pace to it. Music is interesting, though it didn't really suit my taste all the time, but the game came together really well anyhow. I never found anyone to play with, but even then, the AI works well enough, and I finished the game fine. Definitely a must have for the system.
Rated 0 out of 10 by TheRolePlayer If you like Phantasy Star, this is a game for you!
Over all it is like, PSP2....In a sense though its not the same. With its "god eaters" you you feel like you have more power. With your gun blade becoming a monster eating things, you will find this game fun and worth it. Once you have played Phantasy star, you will be able to tell how these are different. Because if you look at both you may just say. "these are the same things." Though from what I seem, making your character the way you want to, that come limited. Though getting new cloths and new parts for your balde make things better. Making your blade look different are what a lot of gamers look for. In these Role playing games, if they have no sense of. "ok here is a story this is who you are." Then people still think, "ok whats the plot, and can I make my character look how I want to?" Because a stright forward Rpg is ok. But a lot of gamers like games like Phantasy star, when you can make your own character and be part of the plot yourself. On some sites people can find the japanese demo, I say go look at it. You may like the game. I would say this game looks like a 8 out of 10....Though it plays well like phantasy star, its characters could be more, "good looking". I would say what keeps this together is, how you can still have other team members, and make your characters weapon look different. In a sense it does have a system just like phantasy though, thats why I look forward to see the plot in more detail though.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Jcb1212 Under rated and over rated?
This game is awsome and a little bland. The good thing about it are mostly a well told tragic story, well done soundtrack , tons weapons to make along with bullets, guns and shields, and decent gameplay, the downsides are you will be fighting the same 30 something monsters for quite awhile, most wepons are god awful when it comes to find the things to make them, and the difficulty can never make up it's mind going from easy to ungodly at the tip of a hat . But overall it is still worth getting even with these small flaws.
