God Eater 3 Demo - Anubis Monster Multiplayer Combat Gameplay

    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.

    Made both for the fans and new-comers, God Eater 3 is fun and demanding. It offers many hours of play and many subtilities you must master, making it a nice little journey.

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

    There are better and deeper hunting games, but we’ve had a great time with God Eater 3, and it’s a very good choice if you’re planning to play it with friends.

    In the end, I don’t think God Eater 3 will leave much of a mark in the genre now that Monster Hunter World seems to completely dominate it, but my time with it was fun nonetheless. Thanks to its engaging and interconnected systems, it’s ever-present anime aesthetic, and its lovable although underdeveloped characters, the game ends up overcoming many of its flaws. In all honesty, I never thought eating gods would be such nice comfort food.

    God Eater 3 boasts fantastic monster hunting combat and the best visuals we've seen from the series, but hangs onto too many of the previous game's hang-ups.

    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

    A damn good sequel to an already awesome series. It's far more polished than it's predecessor and improved a lot of things.

My only complaint is that the characters lack real emotional development when you consider the hardships they've faced. I find it strange they've been tortured and imprisoned since they were children but none of them show any kind of trauma. 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.

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

    When supplies are running low and the world looks bleak, at least you have extra duct tape to toss around?
