In the early 2050s, unknown life forms called “Oracle Cells” began their uncontrolled consumption of all life on Earth. Their violent nature and god-like adaptability earned them the name “Aragami”. Facing an enemy completely immune to conventional weapons, modern society collapses as humanity is driven to the point of extinction. One last hope remains. Following the Fenrir Organization’s development of “God Arcs”, Oracle Cell-based living weapons, their wielders are organized into an elite force of “God Eaters”. As the newest recruit to Fenrir’s Far East Branch, discover that in times of adversity, humans will go to any length to survive in GOD EATER: Resurrection.

Perhaps it took a move to the home consoles and a years-delayed retouch, but God Eater Resurrection shines as a less demanding, flashier alternative to the likes of Monster Hunter. It'll never ask for the same depth of dedication, but it doesn't try to, and in (not) doing so, manages to prove that being the "diet" version of something isn't always a bad thing.
The combat feels substantial even if the enemy variety doesn’t. The game itself is laid out in a way that welcomes players new to the whole hunter genre. That really isn’t why Resurrection exists, though; it’s really here to serve as an appetizer for the upcoming sequel. It prepares the palate for what is to come and serves as a great entry point at a low price. People who are already sold would do well to wait for the sequel, but those who aren’t sure should try their hands at Resurrection.
For as much as Gods Eater Burst excelled in 2010, it’s since been outpaced by similar games. That includes prey mounting in Monster Hunter and a more engrossing atmosphere in Toukiden: Kiwami. There’s comfort to be found in the simple mission goals, but it’s impossible to ignore how repetitive they are--and how outdated they make Resurrection feel in practice.
