Jul 15, 2016The sheer volume of quests and weapons and monsters also means that, quite apart from being a brilliant game, this has incalculable longevity. The life of a hunter isn’t for everyone. But if killing something massive, carving it up, and making a snazzy hat seems in any way appealing, then Monster Hunter Generations might be your game of the year.
Jul 12, 2016Generations is one of the best chapters of the Monster Hunter saga, a game that will please newcomers and fans in equal measure, thanks to the introductions of arts and styles. A bold step in the right direction, a more than welcome breath of fresh air.
Jul 12, 2016Monster Hunter Generations is a great game. Hardcore fans will enjoy its well known formula and beginners will find in it the most accessible entry in all the series. More from what you would expect from Capcom, but with new and well implemented gameplay mechanics in form of combat style and special abilities.
Aug 16, 2016Generations holds everything that makes the series to be so cherished. Its mistakes, while inconvenient, are the results of the desire of creating something different and desire of honor a legacy at the same time.
Nintendo Force MagazineSep 7, 2016Generations feels like a half-step sequel in the series instead of a full leap into new territory. [Issue #23 – September/October 2016, p.74]
Jul 12, 2016New features like the Hunter Styles and Arts and Prowler mode are a gift to less experienced players, while the sheer wealth of content and great online play will please long-term fans.
Aug 12, 2016I still think that Monster Hunter belongs on a big screen. Having said that, even without a lot of innovation and relying on well-known mechanics this hunt still manages to entertain.

Aug 23, 2016I put in 100 hours in MH4U in a year of play. I was very reluctant to pick up MHG because I thought it would be roughly more of the same and II put in 100 hours in MH4U in a year of play. I was very reluctant to pick up MHG because I thought it would be roughly more of the same and I would be burnt out on MH. This is not the case at all--100%. This game is very fresh. As everyone has said the styles and hunting arts has made this game feel very different. Why do the styles and arts matter? Well, the styles matter--the arts are just like special moves. The arts make every weapon have a different way of playing. In MH4U I really only used the insect glave. I wanted to use the hammer but found it clunky. Now, I am rocking the hammer because the styles (and some arts that make you mobile) allow me to play the way I like to play. I am having fun trying out each weapon on the varied lineup of monsters. I never really used the lance, gunlance and hammer. Now I am really enjoying these. But like with MH4U (the only other MH I played), the game takes time to learn and a few hours to get to the actually big game hunting. Fetch quests in the begining are just tutorial like quests. Get to at least HR 3 and you will have fun. Great game and worth the money. Enjoy!… Expand
Sep 29, 2016As someone who cut their teeth on the 3DS version of MH3U, then sunk over 300 hours into MH4U, I consider this game a mild upgrade at best.As someone who cut their teeth on the 3DS version of MH3U, then sunk over 300 hours into MH4U, I consider this game a mild upgrade at best. While I do like the fact that the story starts with a little better pacing than the last game, with all of the tiny, wingless wyverns and such as early punching bags to prepare you for the giant monstrosities that come later, the pacing gets a little weirder later on when certain monsters that weren't really seen as a big deal in earlier games suddenly get built up as some sort of grand ordeal like that of the legendary dragons in MH4U.
I also have mixed feelings about the overhauled combat. The hunter arts rock, no question about it. However, some arts clearly got the short end of the stick. It's fantastic that some styles can have 2 special moves bound to them, but the tiles for the touch screen can fit one or three arts, resulting it an open slot taking up space should you chose the three-ability tile.
These are fairly trivial matters, though, and I'll probably end up losing few hundred hours of my life to this game regardless. Good stuff.… Expand
Jul 20, 2016Strange. Reviewers say this game is awesome, but i would have to disagree. It is indeed solid, but nothing close to the experience and theStrange. Reviewers say this game is awesome, but i would have to disagree. It is indeed solid, but nothing close to the experience and the polish MH4U had.
If you are a veteran of older titles prior even to MH4U, then you'd know what i mean. From what I've played so far, the game takes two (2) steps forward in terms of gameplay, but takes three (3) steps backwards in everything else.
I am no newbie to the title, but i am no extreme veteran either. My current record in this genre:
MH2 - 90 hours
MHFU - 550 hours
MH3rdP - 320 hours
MHTri - 200 hours
MH4U - 470 hours (and counting)
MHGenerations - 40 hours (and counting)
Let's get down to it.
- "What the hell is going on."
What MH4U accomplished as a great narrative of a hunter traversing locations with NPC's that feel involved in your world and with monsters that fit into the context - MHGen completely erases.
There is no story here. You are in a map. You are given quests, a butt load of dialogue with vague descriptions, minimal (recycled) cut scenes, and no milestones for progression aside from a text bubble here and there. Eg. I was given access to ALL towns on the get go and am given tons of filler dialogue that i just got tired of reading.
Palicoes aren't even introduced properly. You wouldn't even know you had to hire a cat if you haven't played MH4U or the older games. Transitions are just too clunky.
- "Looks awesome, but MH4U looks better and shows more creative effort/production value."
Same graphics, but the new Jungle area feels abysmally generic. Those big Brontosauruses, in spite of their sheer size and armor plates, provide nothing but RAW meat. The towns from the older titles (which is accessible for all immediately) haven't been touched nor retouched, so they feel VERY out of place and provide nothing but nostalgia factor.
The hunting areas from the previous game don't blend well with how the new content looks too. Textures though of higher quality now appear to be extremely generic and barren, not to mention if you look at cave walls it is impossible to miss the recurring patterns of bad texture maps. CAPCOM did not even make any attempts at re-texturing the old content to use the potential of the 3DS.
- "Hunter arts are awesome! No, really they are awesome."
Hunter Arts are awesome. (period) The variety they provide in terms of gameplay feel fresh. However, you cannot configure the menu on the second screen for only two (2) arts. So if you only use two (2), you have a dead square that should've been used for other utilities. You could use one (1) tile but you have to switch it often to know if the arts are triggered. NO other more efficient notifications of charged arts.
- "What's up with the that bright glaring background on the 2nd screen?"
When MH4U came out, i saw the potential of clearing your screen and move all distracting elements to the bar below. However, in MHGen despite being able to do that, you are faced with a BRIGHT background that is a pain for the eyes on dimly lit situations. Your second screen is brighter that your main screen for crying out load.
- "This game is good, but MH4U is awesome."
MHGen gives too much homage to nostalgia. Content and polish are there, but are there on a selective basis. Game lacks a workable story and G-rank making it rather short. It seems they just stitched 35% of the older titles for no reason and that's it frankly. You as a hunter have no role in this world.
Compared to MH4U, this game feels like a bridge to the future MH5 . No effort on immersion has been done unlike MH4U that introduces the genre to new players and veterans alike. In fact, if you are a new player, i would highly recommend you pick-up MH4U first before deciding to play this game. Killing monsters is always cool mind you, but I've been playing monster hunter for so long, a few tricks like moves and stuff don't impress me compared to polish, accessibility, and simply the quality that is present all throughout MH4U. Again, with this game out, Monster Hunter 5 should be just around the corner. Hopefully that game brings the same polish as MH4U has.… Expand
