    Although almost every single mechanic in the game feels eerily similar to the Monster Hunter series, God Eater 3 manages to stand on its own (monstrous) two feet thanks to some incredible combat and a surprisingly engaging story.

    Frankly, God Eater 3 has left us with quite a bit more positive feelings than we expected it would have. These primarily derive from the interesting evolution that we find in the characters of its history as well as the ability to create the type of fighter we want.

    God Eater 3 isn’t quite polished like Monster Hunter World, but it surely is the best alternative to Capcom’s videogame.

    God Eater 3's another frenetic action RPG where the enjoyable rhythm and flow of combat is enough to outweigh most of the negatives. Whether you're up for a lengthy session or you're just stopping by to farm some materials, the game's easy to sink your teeth into, and there's plenty to chew on should you find yourself hooked thanks to the in-depth character progression. While more could and probably should have been done to bring God Eater's visuals and cumbersome menus up to speed, there's still plenty of skilful hack and slashing on offer here.

    Not having played any of the previous God Eater games, I can’t speak to how the franchise has progressed. As a stand alone product, God Eater 3 has generally engaging combat, some depth and complexity in terms of weapon and skill development and a story and character that are not actively bad, just generic and not very creative. Fans of Monster Hunter and games in the genre will enjoy the shorter encounters and faster, more fluid combat.

    God Eater 3 is a good if unremarkable title in the monster hunting subgenre. This is a game that doesn’t excel in any one area, but none of its shortcomings are damning to the point of ruining an enjoyable experience. There are attempts at giving more depth to combat with the characters engaging each other and having burst attacks, but using these actions strategically doesn’t greatly alter the battle outcome from just button mashing. The repetitive mission structure paired with a story and characters that feel as if they could have been lifted from any number of games prevent this title from being exceptional, but for fans of the genre, there’s a good game hiding beyond these shortcomings.

    God Eater 3 bears a superficial resemblance to Monster Hunter, boasting many of its features, but none of its depth. It offers nothing but diluted versions of what it has tried to poach from better games.

I like the grind it presents when I want to get certain items to create certain weapons and I definitely enjoy the character creation per usual. Story is solid. And although people have mixed feelings because of its comparisons to MH, I enjoy the fact I can play with my friends and the fact that it has an anime feel to it for me. Expand

Compared to 2, the mobility became more detailed, giving the impression of being slower, which is easy to get used to. The game looks great, but it's a small niche that likes to repeat quests and farm. Expand

    It's a good start for an initial release, but for it to truly be great it needs additional polish and an endgame. The story and side missionsIt's a good start for an initial release, but for it to truly be great it needs additional polish and an endgame. The story and side missions all together will net you around 40-ish hours. It's a much faster game then Monster Hunter World so hunts only last between 5 to 10 minutes. Where in monster hunter you need to run across massive zones the zones in GE3 are pretty closed off and it won't take a long time to engage an Aragami and it won't be able to run too far away from you. Mind you, the weapon customization system lets you customize your weapon, shield, and gun to fit your personal playstyle. Whether you prefer a more up close combat style or a long range style, you can expend Abandoned God Arcs, the game's Gem system to add abilities to your arsenal to power them up. And the bullet editor is back which let's those who prefer playing support or dealing damage from afar to completely design their own bullets albeit it's not as broken from the looks of it to its GE2RB counterpart. There's also the Engage system, Acceleration Triggers, and Control Modules that all act as personal playstyle modifiers. There's a lot LOT of tools, but no big baddies at the end to use these on. Weapons stop at Rank 7 but you're not fighting anything like tempered Aragami or anything. Patch 1.20 is supposed to add fixes and polish to the game that it desperately needs for some things. It's good that the developers are listening to feedback and adjusting the game accordingly which gives me hope for the future of the game. Right now it's 'good' but it's living in GE2RB's shadow. In about 1 to 2 years time from release, it needs to add another arc or two to add another 60 to 80 story missions, about 30-40 more aragami even just reskins, and needs to add a lot more Hard Mode missions. 1.20 scheduled in early spring for JP is said to include "Certification Missions" which I'm hoping equates to a Hard Mode, and 1.30 will be adding the first story-based DLC. The game needs more variants and new monsters it needs to go up to at least rank 15 during its lifespan to match GE2RB.
