This is a good game, or at least, the original version from a year or so ago is.
Very monster hunter esque.
Another good game in this vein is Soul Sacrifice.
Both Soul Sacrifice and Toukiden have gotten this "update with more content and reprint" thing, so you have Toukiden Kiwami and Soul Sacrifice Delta now. So make sure to get that version, rather than the originals, if you buy them.
