Understand the appeal...

...but it's not for me. I played for a few hours, almost as an experiment. I've never played one of the monster hunter games, and I know this has been compared to the same. I completely get the appeal that many see in the game, but it's just not for me. Way to repetitive for my tastes. And I never got the sense that my character was progressing. I was collecting tons of little things, but my character was just the same guy with new stuff. not what I'm looking for in an RPG, but again...I see the appeal. There are probably hundreds of hours of solid gameplay in this for those looking for a monster hunter type game.

Horrible

Not good

No AI teammates for offline play. It's nice Ad Hoc and Infrastructure are included, especially because few games have Ad Hoc on the Vita, for some freaking reason, but finding people at your level early on is impossible. You have to play the game by yourself before you can be of comparable strength to other players. The combat system is OK, but not great. It's like countless other tedious JRPGs before it, where you just accept quests and go through the same areas over and over fighting different enemies. There was some popular game on the PSP where you had giant laser swords that was like this, but that game had AI teammates. I want to be able to have a good experience offline on my portable game without having to rely on lots of single player grinding and then finally being able to do co-op in order to have any amount of fun.

From the second you begin your first quest, you are hooked. This game is like Monster Hunter, but more streamlined, and has way better controls (love the usage of the right-stick for camera!). Using potions from a quick touch on the screen is also way more convenient.

Enemies are difficult in packs and Bosses are fairly challenging. The game really surprised me with over 30 hours of gameplay on top of all the fun of this "offline MMO-style" RPG. I don't understand the lower review scores here, but this game is one to own if you are a fan of MMO's or RPG's in general.
