Gods Eater Burst is a surprise success. Lord of Arcana, another clone aiming to scratch the Monster Hunter itch, disappointed by failing to deliver quick fun, satisfying progression and slightly accessible multiplayer. Gods Eater Burst might be too eager to please though. There's little motivation for newcomers to engage and learn the game's more complex systems, especially how forgiving the game is when played alone. Online, though you'll be expected to learn your class roles, outfit yourself with the proper gear and play as a team. In the end Gods Eater Burst doesn't do enough to teach you these core talents. Maybe that's what friends are for.
