Namco Bandai's God Eater is coming to Japanese PSPs this fall, and it still really looks like Monster Hunter, giant swords and giant monsters and all.
Guys, please stop using every monster hunter related thread to complain about MH controls. If you can't handle the controls, you can always go back to galaga (1 button) or Pac-Man (no buttons).
Monster Hunter is praised becuase the controls need to be mastered. You do not become a pro overnight and the game does not allow itself to be dumbed down so your gameplay gets easier. You have a right not to like it but this is a characteristic of the game and most people that enjoy the game would not want it any other way.
