Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is one of the biggest games this year. An addictive RPG game with a really interesting story. Charismatic characters, a fun combat system and spectacular graphics await you in this title.
Amazing game. Great story, simple game play. The post game battling and collecting eggs and creating the strongest monsters is really fun. Plenty of content in main story and lots of side quests albeit the side quests are more like kill this and that. This is the sort of game that pokemon sword and shield should have been like.
I loved it played the first stories loved that one as well when I heard the sales didn't do good I was hoping we would get another but when I so the announcement for this I flipped out ever since I got it I haven't been able to stop playing they improved upon almost every mechanic in the first one the graphics looks amazing and the scaling of the characters give it a mature look the only downside to this game is that they removed the color feature from the last game and they made it a bit easier although I might be the only bothered by that other then those two loved the game and hope we get an expansion like the mainline games or even a stories 3 in the future
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin’s story might not light the world on fire, but it’s a fun experience that can acclimate new players to the great elements of the Monster Hunter series. Combat encounters are full of rich strategy, and Monstie collecting and gear customization kept me coming back even after the credits rolled. If you’ve been curious about Monster Hunter, but feel intimidated by the main series, Stories 2 might be just the entry point you’re looking for.
From its setting to world building and especially the battles with monsters, this is truly an RPG that stays true to what Monster Hunter is all about. While the story is definitely on the light side, exploring the beautiful world with your favorite Monsties is an experience packed with content that any Monster Hunter fan will love.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a complete game that serves its purpose to dazzle veterans and newbies. Although it has errors, its visual style, its combat and its successes when it comes to capturing the essence of the classic JRPG make this game a recommendable title.
The sequel of a Monster Hunter spin-off will greet you with an expansive world to explore, a mechanic of training monsters that hatch from eggs (which resembles Pokémon games a bit), and a disappointing combat system. The combat is primitive, does not evolve in any way and long attack animations make it irritating. What might keep you playing is the game’s light, well-told story and tons of equipment to craft.

Ultimately a Monster Hunter game for people who don't like Monster Hunter, Wings of Ruin offers enough spectacle to keep players engaged before surprising them with unexpected depth in combat and customisation. It's let down by repetitiveness in exploration and a slower pace, and Switch players will see how much it strains the hardware, but it's still a good time for JRPG fans.
Es una secuela bastante correcta de su entrega en 3ds. Sin embargo, se torna un poco repetitivo y la falta de variedad le juegan en contra si vienes de jugar MHS 1. Como nueva experiencia es correcta, pero se siente con potencial desaprovechado.

Llevo 23 horas jugadas. El juego en sí está francamente bien, es entretenido, sin un nivel de complejidad exagerado, requiere un poco de planificación y táctica pero es lo que se esperaba lógicamente. En Nintendo switch no está bien optimizado y es muy frecuente encontrar zonas donde los FPS se resienten bastante y va a tirones. Afortunadamente por norma general es más que jugable pero esto le resta un puntito, otro puntito que pierde a mi parecer es en la falta de doblaje al castellano, sé que es algo habitual en Nintendo, pero por lo que cuestan estos juegos y las ventas que tienen en el mundo hispanohablante no tiene justificación y por ultimo el tercer punto que le quito y sitúo mi nota en un 7 que es buena nota es la repetitividad excesiva en combates y en guardias de monstruos que son clones unos de otros, le falta un poco más de mimo en términos generales. A pesar de todo es un juego divertido y recomendado
Boy oh boy, where do I begin with this dumpster fire of a mess. I suppose I should mention, I played the first game, and loved it. This one here is well, pretty bad. Definitely better than some other games, but let me break it down.
Both good and bad.
Good in which, it is much more expanded on. Bad in which the rock, paper, scissors system become very predictable for quite a range of monsters. Higher ranking monsters gets two to three attacks a turn, that you cannot defend against in most cases. It is even worse in the players favor in this game, since only the Kinship ability can bypass this system, and it leaves them completely vulnerable for a turn. More or less, it is safer to play without it. This ultimately defeating the point of building up the gauge. Previous game, I never had to play support, this game? I was forced into it. Terrible design.
Good and Bad.
Sword and Shield has more relevance than Great Sword, which makes little sense damage wise. Bows are also one of the better ones to use, due to the many hits, and turn end attacks. Hammers and Gun Lance I never found a use for. They were pretty useless. This game makes weapons even worse than the last one.
This is probably one of the better points, but it also has its bad as well. If I am not wrong, it should roughly be around the same as the last game, if not slightly more. Anyway, it is more open to exploring, so that is good. It is also bad how flying is so limited, even more so than the previous one. The dens are larger, so that is good, and it does give incentive to explore it.
Now to this one, there are characters from the previous game. With a certain Felyne jumping back and forth between knowing some characters. At some points, it seems like he genuinely doesn’t know, at other points he suddenly does. I should also mention, this character is very annoying throughout the entire game. Unlike the first, when he grew on the player, and became quite likable from middle to end.
The plot of the game is everywhere, they introduce a lot of side stories, which if memory serves. Almost none of them gets finished. A Rathalos that is supposed to bring about ruin, great plot right? Well, it looks like they had a decent idea for evolution of his Kinship skill as the plot went along. However, they decided to be cheap, and simply used the one from the first game. Anyway, enough of that.
This game was pretty much just go here and there, the characters weren’t given any much time to be properly liked. The main character just felt there, and did not have much relevance. The first game, the main character was important. It was more heartfelt, and the effort can be seen. This game? Well, they had ideas, but none gets properly executed, because a certain Felyne constantly breaks the mood. Every time something thought provoking, or interesting happens, his annoying voice, and stupid remarks breaks the immersion.
All of this eventually lead’s to a final showdown, that didn’t even felt earned, and didn’t bring about a rise in emotions. There wasn’t even any sort of real turmoil to say, it was like a bunch of ideas just thrown together.
Animations were excellent, however, if I was brain dead, then maybe I would have been focusing on this. While a lot of effort was put into this, it seems like they were hoping these graphics will be enough to distract from the poorly constructed story/timeline. I get the feeling this is probably supposed to be a standalone, at the same time? They keep bringing up points that made me think it wasn’t supposed to be.
Honestly, the only reason I am giving this a 4/10, is because I played the first game. For a $60 game, this was borderline trash. Perhaps someone can find enjoyment in this, but I went in with high expectations from the last game, and was met with disappointment. I just wanted to play the game to get it over with, honestly, this might be the last time I buy anything from this company as well. Unless they manage to really pull themself up, I don’t want anything to do with their games. I honestly felt ripped off for the price they were going for. I should also mention there are performance issues with the game, such as lag, or delayed movements.
