    Capcom perfected the combat formula over countless releases, but it wasn’t until Monster Hunter: World that they stripped away what ultimately was never much fun to begin with. You spend less time spent preparing, and more time actually fighting. And sales figures suggest, as we all expected, that Capcom really had something special sitting under all that bloat.

    Monster Hunter World is one of the best games of the year, and it shines brightly on the PC.

    An amazing confluence of level and monster design, combat and gameplay systems, Monster Hunter: World is undoubtedly best Monster Hunter game. After spending well over a hundred hours outside the campaign, I think my original review score was actually a little low. As a game, Monster Hunter: World is still incredible, but the PC release can only be considered definitive for a relatively small number of power users with top-shelf GPUs and zippy processors. While everyone with a recent PC and decent graphics card can make the game work, for many players the best experience may still be on console.

    Monster Hunter World captivates with thrilling boss fights and its variety of weapons, but the PC port could have been technically better.

    Arriving eight months late on PC, everything that can be said about Monster Hunter World already has done. Rest assured though, the wait was indeed worth it. Anyone looking for a deep action game they can potentially invest hundreds of hours into need look no further. This is Monster Hunter, back and better than it's ever been before.

    Monster Hunter: World still has all the complexity expected from this series, but it dishes it out in much more palatable chunks than usual. It's still got a frightening amount of depth, but it feels manageable in a way that few in the series have pulled off before. Players may still feel a little lost from time to time, but a little guidance from series vets or other friends can drastically reduce the growing pains new players will likely experience. On top of all that, this is one of the best-feeling titles the series has had to date; so saddle up with some friends, and explore all the New World has to offer.

    It's not the worst console port I have seen, but it surely isn't the best one. The only real flaw of the PC version of Monster Hunter World is the buggy multiplayer mode. Everything else works just fine and deserves some attention - after all, this is one of the most captivating adventures in the virtual world ever.

Having spent 500+ hours on PS4 and 600+ hours on PC. I constantly feel drawn back to the deep combat, fantastic crafting system, beautiful environments, fluid and weighty animations, and the fantastic challenge of the higher difficulty end game monsters. With an expansion coming this year I would encourage anyone to pick this game up and give it a fair shot. Personally, this game is in my top 5 of all time. Expand

Each weapon type really requires lot of learning to master and has different way of apporaching each monsters with it. It is fun to find your best favorite weapons etc to deal with each situations. However, the weapon balancing is bit too simple and you often reach the same ultimate weapon armor combination to deal the maximum damage. Therefore as you play further into the game you often end up in the same equipments as other players. Other than that it is a fun game to play and you will defnitely enjoy the first 200-300hrs of the game play. Expand

    Not entirely impressed with this port. Kbm controls are unbearable, and yet even with a controller the combat feels slow and clunky.Not entirely impressed with this port. Kbm controls are unbearable, and yet even with a controller the combat feels slow and clunky. Navigating multiplayer is a nightmare, you need to jump through so many hoops. Want a smooth co-op campaign experience with friends? Forget about it. You need to all individually watch the cut scenes for every mission before you're allowed to co-op the story.

    I really want to love this game but Capcom are making it so hard. Not worth the full price tag, wait until its on sale. Hopefully they'll have fixed the never ending list of issues by then.

I don't understand all these people, who spend 100+ hours in it. Optimization is terrible, combat is so clunky, hitboxes are awful. Controls are so weird it's hard to actually enjoy the game. Missions are boring. The only good thing about this game are pretty good looking monsters. Expand

    No plot and no characters with traits or progression. Only monster grinding with gear progression system. Pretty bland.
