Summary: Many games have you run around with a sword and shield. Other games may have you run around with a gun. THIS game has you run around with all three merged into one super weapon. Yes, you wield a sword/shield/gun hybrid weapon. And it eats monsters. Seriously. The world is overrun with some kind of monsters and you have to beat them senseless with your God Arc. Yes, it is so awesome it has the word 'god' in it.
Summary: As a huge Monster Hunter fan in waiting for localization of MHP3rd, I was looking for something to keep me happy. Lord of Arcana was a bitter disappointment, but this game is fantastic! It's not at as 'hardcore' as Monster Hunter, but it has a story, and manages to differ itself from the others in the genre enough to be a lot of fun. The idea of a weapon that performs various functions is a great idea too - sword, gun, shield, it does it all! Highly recommended.
