Gods Eater Burst is a 2011 PSP action role playing experience with an interesting adventure that has players hunting down monsters with massive swords and guns.
Focused on the collection of items from slain enemies in order to enhance your weaponry for more conflicts the game has many similarities to the popular Monster Hunter franchise.
Set in a futuristic Japan the world has been ravished by a monster race known as the Aragami. These come in all shapes and sizes as well as having their unique weaknesses which successful characters will aim to capitalise on. These humans that fight against the Aragami belong to the Fenrir organisation and use their powerful God Arcs as weapons.
These God Arcs are powerful weapons that can switch between a gun and blade form quickly which gives players two distinct options in combat and are often encouraged to switch between the two for maximum effect as in order to fire your gun it will first need to be charged through melee attacks.
Another important element of combat is the ability for your weapons to literally take a bite out of the enemy, allowing you to enter Burst Mode which increases your power and abilities for a short time.
These battles aren’t a solo affair either in Gods Eater Burst with 3 AI companions (or friends) joining players for each and every encounter. With more than 100 missions packed into the game these team members will serve you well and can be customised with a range of cosmetic clothing. Other items such as bullets can also be customised heavily in Gods Eater Burst by obtaining items from slain enemies.
Overall Gods Eater Burst is a nice homage to the Monster Hunter franchise and worth a playthrough despite a few bumps in the road.
