After all the sub par reviews I wasn't expecting to keep this game past a few days. I have about 6 hours into the game and it has gotten better, more challenging due to the better creatures as you gain rank. I am a big Monster Hunter fan and there are a ton of similarities between the two. GEB combines your three weapon types from MH into one: Sword (short, long, claymore), Shield, and Gun (blast, sniper & assault). So now all you need to do is concentrate on which weapon type and modifiers you want depending upon the boss weakness. If you don't counter their weakness with a weapon, you will probably not get a kill in the 30 minutes or less time frame. For most this will become an issue (oh no I have to actually think about what weapons and bullets I need to kill the creature?! I just want to spam the square button from a distance). I didn't find there to be too much dialogue, more than MHU but not as annoying as MH Tri, so don't feel this will be an issue. Going from the mission counter to changing weapons and items to the door to fight the mission is about a 2 second walk, much less annoying than MHU when you want to change equipment. Fighting in the beginning is easier since you will have help that does fight and heal you.
If you want to take the time to learn how to combine items, farm for equipment upgrades, prepare bullets based on weakness and strategy, you will like this title. For non-Monster Hunter fans you will rate this a 6, possibly 7. For MH fans a 7 to 8.

This game is actualy pretty good in my perspective. If you give the story a chance, its not as much of a bore as you initialy think it would be. There is a very nice amount of customization in the game as well and over time you get more to pick for clothing, weapons, shields, and guns. the combat is fun and gets a little challenging later in the game but it does get old after so many missions with the same monsters and in such little amounts of areas. This game deserves a solid rent

ok so i bought this cause well i was at my grandparent house helping out with some stuff want gonna be home for a week so had nothing to do and i went to games stop and got this thinming well it will prob keep me busy for at least a few hours. i was expecting to trade it back withing a few hours but i played it and was hooked. first of all i love games that let u make ur own character. it helps me get into the plot. so yeah, turned this on and the first thing it has is a fully animated opening with this cool j-pop playing basically if u like anime ur gonna loove that opening so i was into it right from that. then u get a cut scene with some vital characters then u make ur dude or dudette lots of outfit hair and face choices no facial hair probably cause ur charcter is supposed to be young. if u ever played monster hunter games well it plays like that but u can just switch between weapons at will(guns, shields, swords) 3 types for each all with thier own strengths. for guns u can make ur own type of bullets to the point where they can do all kinds of stuff with it. the lpot is great u get sucked in u get to choose a voice for ur character but it only plays in combat and will come out randomely like "be careful" or "good job lets head to base" during cutscenes he is mute and kinda just nods and gestures but u get used to it. like all anime u got the immature lighthearted guy the sexy busty chicks ur really strong loner guy(hes awesome in this game no lie) ur leader/sensie mentor guy ur do tutorials(optional gets u cash and items and are so easy to do just do em they are like 5 secs a piece do finish) then u got ur first few storie missions where u meet guys then the lpot thickens im still not done with this but u will love this if u like rpgs with great plots and action packed gameplay and tons of customization. fyi u can change outfite and make new ones whenever u want so theres even more options after u8 start ur game
