Soul Sacrifice Review (Vita) - PSLS

"Soul Sacrifice has earned a lot of comparisons to Monster Hunter, but most are unjustified and unfair to both games. Monster Hunter is about the thrill of the chase — hunting — for a giant monster by packing up appropriate supplies and traversing dangerous, often picturesque terrain and then fighting a huge beast. Soul Sacrifice, on the other hand, drops players right into battle, and finding the mark will take mere seconds. The focus in SS lies instead upon the combat itself, and once that is over, the dark story. The two might be placed within the same genre, but the functional similarities between the two are limited. Battlefield and BioShock might both be first-person games that involve shooting, but to call one a clone of the other would be inaccurate. In fact, one seeking a Monster Hunter clone with Soul Sacrifice might be surprised to find how dissimilar they are, with the latter having little to no emphasis on exploration, but instead much more on its combat, its story, and its spell management." -PSLS (PS Vita, Soul Sacrifice) 8/10

I'm eager to finally get my hands on this. I need more Vita content. I'm currently slogging my way through Army Corps of Hell... which is...frustrating.
