With God Eater 2: Rage Burst, you’re getting the sort of action and adventure you expect from a God Eater game. It’s filled with Aragami to hunt, life-threatening threats to address, and characters to connect with. The difference is, this time you feel like you’re focusing in more on your characters’ abilities and personalities than you did in God Eater Resurrection. I felt like I was learning more about specific people and groups, rather than Fenrir, God Eaters, and Aragami as a whole. The sequel has the luxury of going deeper than the original, since we already have some familiarity with all parts, and takes full advantage of that with elements like Blood Arts and Character Episodes.
God Eater 2 traveled a similar trajectory that its prequel followed. It started as a game for the PlayStation Portable, received an enhanced release (this time ported to the PlayStation Vita), before finally making its way to the console. While fans in the West received the superior version of the original release with Gods Eater Burst, they were left grasping for air when every form of God Eater 2 came and went in Japan years ago.
Though, the best and clearest example of God Eater 2: Rage Burst narrowing in a way God Eater Resurrection didn’t is its character episodes. These sub-stories look closer at characters who can join your party, occasionally changing their abilities in a fight, adding new Blood Arts, new Personal Abilities, and sometimes even new items. They always offer more information about the person in question, sometimes giving silly information about something like a favorite food, and occasionally letting you know secrets about people’s pasts. The first few, with Ciel, Emil, Erina, and Kota, appear after clearing the Rank 3 second story mission, with more following after regular story mission and rank mission updates. Of course, even more follow once you get into the Rage Burst expansion content.
