I was happy to find that the series is basically a slicker, more stylish version of Monster Hunter with a coat of anime paint applied.
If you've never played MonHun, the gist of it is as follows: you create a character and are dropped into a hub area. From there, you:
•Accept missions to go out and fight tons of enemies - both small and large.
•Learn how to play better.
•Customize and upgrade your gear.
•Go through story cutscenes between missions.
•Repeat until you beat the game.
Make no mistake, this isn't story or exploration focused at all. Combat is front-and-center the star of the show.
Battles against giant demons is the whole point of the game.
The combat is very sluggish and weird at first, but becomes fantastic once you learn how your preferred weapon is supposed to be used.
The hammer, for example seems like a stupid choice at first compared to the long sword which does the same damage at a faster pace.
Then you realise that you can go into an absurdly fast 20-hit-combo of swings capped off with a jumping smash. Not so stupid now, eh? Every weapon is like this, being okay until you find it's true potential.
Oh, all of the weapons feel unique, and are fun to use. Forgot to mention that!
The enemies are alright. They really don't have the personality of the monsters from MonHun, but they don't actively make me laugh at their designs. So good enough.
The weapon designs can range from awesome to hilariously stupid-looking.
Thankfully, the stats don't vary much weapon-to-weapon, so you can always use whatever looks best.
The story is about what you can reasonably expect from these types of games, shallow and unsurprising.
The english dubs are gratingly bad for the most part in the first game, but range from decent-to-great in the second.
It should also be said that the first game has atrocious writing, where the second is much more decent.
The character design is excellent and the greatest visual strength of the series. Characters have crisp, highly detailed models and all have unique looks with tons of cool outfits.
The player character can also look awesome thanks to a really good customization system and lot's of great fashion options. I would have liked height and breast-size sliders so I could create a more petite character, but it's still better than MonHun's.
The soundtrack is great, with weird grungy distorted music similar to that of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, if you know what that is.
The two games are mostly similar, but 2 adds a lot more wrinkles to the combat system to both make it more engaging and make you more powerful.
You can play them in order, but jumping to the second is also fine as it only makes a few references to the first.
Overall, the games have a few rough edges, but they are far from my mind whenever I'm playing because of the sheer fun of the combat and customization. It's a great series with some quirks that are easy to forgive when you're in the swing of things.
Highly recommended for action game fans or MonHun fans.
Ooh! It also has 4-player online co-op! I almost forgot that part. You can meet up with three other people and go on missions together. Great fun!
If you like anime, you'll like this game. If you like hunting style games, you'll like this game. If you dislike either of these things, DON'T GET THIS GAME. What I'm getting at is that there are a lot of cheesy story sequences (a la traditional anime) and, although it is quite a lengthy game, the story is pretty transparent and stereotypical.
Saying that, I'm not playing this for the story, and neither should you, because the gameplay is where it's at. The combat mechanics make fights feel fair (for the most part), fast, and exciting; unlike other hunting games I've played (I'm looking at you Monster Hunter), you usually only spend up to 20 minutes TOPS on a mission, at least as far as I've seen. Character customization is pretty detailed as well. You can be like me and make the most stereotypical anime character ever (because why not have red spiky hair and cool sunglasses, right?) or make a character resembling yourself or whoever else you might want. There's also different options for clothing which is a plus.
Combat is highly customizable as well. You have a large array of weapons to choose from (you get one ranged and one melee for each mission) including different elements, types of combat, and bullets. Oh lord the bullets. There's a system to customize the energy bullets you shoot from your ranged weapons and it is insane how much goes into it, so much so that it is downright intimidating.
In typical hunting fashion, all monsters have weak points, strengths and weaknesses to certain types of attacks and elements, and different special abilities. I will say a lot of monsters are re-skinned throughout the games which is a little disappointing since a lot of the designs are really cool.
There's not really much else to say about the game; if you like highly customizable hunting games, this is definitely a good one to pick up, especially since it's two games in one.
