Set in a post-apocalyptic world, it’s up to your special team of God Eaters to destroy god-like monsters devastating the world. With an epic story, unique characters, and all new God Arcs and Aragami, the latest evolution in ACTION is here.
I guess if the story and writing was sacrificed, it went to making a more concise and impactful gameplay with the addition of three new weapons into the series and the promise of additional content until Summer. This is a game that keeps in line with the previous entries. It’s like that younger sibling who’s managed to be more skillful and prettier than the elders, except for the rampant use of duct tape for clothes.
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's frenetic anime-style combat and party customization make it a solid take on the Monster Hunter formula, even if its lackluster story and somewhat unvaried content keep it from being the best it could be.
I liked God Eater 3 more than I expected to. It may be a fairly shallow and repetitive experience, but downing a colossal foe and carving the bastards up as a crazy J-Rock song springs to life in the background is pretty damn cool, especially when experienced with likeminded friends online. While it might not satisfy genre aficionados looking for something new, Bandai Namco has mapped out some free updates for the future, and it’s an easy recommendation for anyone who liked the previous entries – not to mention a great starting point for anyone interested in checking out what the series is like.
While it won’t make any new fans of the Giant-Monster-Slaying genre, God Eater 3 introduces enough new with a new coat of paint for fans of the series to enjoy.
God Eater 3 is a solid entry in the franchise that doesn't necessarily reinvent itself, but it doesn't have to. All the core things that make God Eater so enjoyable, from the lightning-fast combat to the anime stylings, have been given a new lick of paint and propped up enticingly next to additions like the well-tuned Assault Missions and creative enemies to make one delicious package. Some aspects of the game--like its difficulty curve and multitude of superfluous customization systems--miss the mark, but it's an enjoyable romp with plenty of raucous battles if you're hungry for an action RPG.
The fast, energetic and explosive combat is still here, combos, bursts, accelerations are there. But the story falls flat to include new players to the world, the camera and lock on systems are all over the place and the whole game feels to easy or to chaotic at times. If you have enjoyed the previous games in the series, like anime styled action games or have a liking to more fast paced and less intricate combat system this might be a good ride for a time or until something better comes around.
