Or E.X. Troopers it's was made by some people that worked on Monster Hunter games it's pretty much the same though it's not as hard as Monster Hunter and is more about guns though you can get a weapon that changes between sword, hammer, and spear mode.
I own E.X Troopers and it really is nothing like MH, it is reminiscent of Lost Planet and that`s about it. Also yeah like both me and NeonWarrior said pick up 3rd HD, it should be amazingly cheap now!
Well Monster Hunter and E.X. Troopers is all about using dodges to avoid damage and get in hits and some of the challenges are to not get hit fighting 3-4 big enemies along with smaller enemies. Instead of breaking off parts you just knock them down when you damage arms or etc enough that it breaks and starts the regen. Crafting is nothing like Monster Hunter though and not really any super big things to fight.
