This is the Vita board, remember? The second they give a Vita game a really good review, they'll instantly become the most trustworthy source ever.

What did they say about it?

What are the 9/8/8/9 meanings?

I'm guessing: graphics/gameplay/story/sound?

"SS7 is still putting 40+ goals in per season even if he does pretend that a tap in was a bicycle kick every now and then"

Not sure yet. Some one will probably translate it in a couple of days though. What surprises me is that the score is consistent on both the platforms. Maybe tecmo's decision to make the game for two platforms was not a bad one after all.

"Namco Bandai's PS Vita shot at the Monster Hunter genre scores pretty well, although the PSP version was docked a few points, scoring 33 out of 40. "There's something fun to the battles," writer Reona Ebihara began, "where you have to figure out new attack methods to take down the oni foes piece by piece. I don't like how few weapon types there are, but thanks to the large variety of 'mitama', you can still fight in a wide variety of styles, which is nice. It supports Infrastructure Mode as well, which makes co-op play a snap."

"The action here is breezy and exciting," chimed in Ashida. "There's a lot of uniqueness to each weapon's actions and movements, but I think it would have been better if there were more obvious differences between using each type. Also, compared to the PS Vita, the [PSP] controls are a little rough and the graphics and camera controls don't keep up with the Vita, although it's still pretty great for a PSP game.""

Thanks for the info. I'm playing the Japanese expanded demo now and I gotta say if you are a fan of MH and are disappointed in the fact the vita doesn't have one then get this game. It copies MHFU almost to the letter including a fully functioning house, character customization and the demon parts break off like the tails off a Diablos. The works. Yes it screams MH clone. More so than all the others of the genre so its by no means original but it is a very good clone. The demo has loads of content. And the visuals are quite striking on the Vita. I suggest you get a JP account and try it out and see for yourselves. I'm glad they are localizing this from jump. As a massive MH fan this will be day one for me.
