This is a new mmo game. It is the equivelant to Monster Hunter. Even the graphics resemble Monster Hunter. The weapons looks Monster Hunter style too. If you've ever wanted to play Monster Hunter Frontier but couldn't because it hasn't reached the western hemisphere (and it never will) then I suggest you play Hunter Blade. I haven't played it yet as for I am waiting for the official release. Vindictus really isn't as much like Monster Hunter then Hunter Blade, I haven't played Hunter Blade and I can tell. Enjoy.
