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There’s comfort to be found in the simple mission goals, but it’s impossible to ignore how repetitive they are--and how outdated they make Resurrection feel in practice.
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.
