Despite its name, this game has nothing to do with some sort of cosmically powered buffet, but that doesn't mean it's not still a tasty bit of gaming. God Eater Resurrection is built around a seemingly basic premise, challenging players to go out on missions into the postapocalyptic world and hunt down strange creatures. Although the game has a surprisingly deep story, complete with interesting characters and plot twists, the truth is that the story is just connective tissue to help string together all these hunting excursions. Without that story, the game is essentially a futuristic version of Capcom's Monster Hunter franchise, not that that's a bad thing by any means.

God Eater Resurrection has a wealth of customization options. Players can craft all kinds of different powerful weapons with special abilities and unique traits. Each class of weapon is distinct in how it handles, and the various combinations of melee and ranged weapons means that there's something for everyone and for every style of play. There's also a lot of strategy involved, as charging in blindly against an Aragami is a quick way to fail the mission. Instead, you'll want to make sure that your teammates are equipped with abilities to support your play style and that you have a plan of action to take advantage of each creature's specific weaknesses. Once you're in the thick of things, it's too late to plan as you'll be too busy switching weapon modes, loading ammo, ducking and dodging Aragami attacks, and trying to keep track of where all the enemies are. Camera issues and complicated controls can exacerbate the issue, causing plenty of frustration and anxiety when battling and giving a mild case of heartburn to this otherwise fulfilling treat.
