Summary: I like the Monster Hunter games but I always felt like it was lacking something. Whatever it was, Toukiden has. Whether it was the people actually speaking a language, a story, other characters beside the player doing something, or a sense of urgency. Toukiden is a great game for fans of the MH series who need something new in the formula.
Summary: If you've read that this game is like Monster Hunter, then you're right--it is, but it's still quite fun. The mission structure is great and well-paced for a handheld title. The combat is quite fast and the controls are sharp.
Summary: Enjoyable game if you're into monster-hunting games. There are tons out there for the Vita and this one is ok in my opinion. It could be better if there were more monsters and weapons. Grab it if you're looking for a game for the vita, but I would recommend looking to other options available.
Summary: My first monster hunting game. The story is a placeholder, the characters aren't developed that well. However, the mechanics are very tight, and the monster battles are challenging, frustrating, and fun. I wish there were more in-game references, like where to hunt for a given material. It even makes good (and very light) use of the touchscreen, with rarely used button combinations a touchscreen tap away. I thought it was executed very well and would buy a sequel.
Summary: I'm a huge Monster Hunter fan, so naturally I love this. Honestly, I like this more than Monster Hunter. In Toukiden, one fights giant monsters in the same way one does in MH. The difference it, there's a bit more variety in attack in this game. Also, instead of dealing with items, you collect Mitama, which are warrior spirits, which kind of become your battle inventory. Except instead of just being various potions, they're skills.
Summary: I really don't have to say anything else. This game is nearly perfect for me. I will say that comparing this to Soul Sacrifice... I think that's unfair as Soul Sacrifice has its own strong points... but I can't deny that I prefer this over Soul Sacrifice though. As expected from Koei, the character designs and all... they all look similar as Dynasty Warriors, which isn't a bad thing at all. I love their designs. If there's one bad thing I have to say...
Summary: If you like Soul Sacrifice you will enjoy this game. I am relatively new to this genre of game but after enjoying Soul Sacrifice I had to give Toukiden a shot. I was not disappointed. If you havent played Soul Sacrifice on the Vita go buy that as well. This game has a very simple mindset. There are giant "Oni" Monsters and it is your job and the job of the other Slayers to destroy these Monsters and of course save the world.
