    As it stands, I’d absolutely suggest checking out Dauntless if you haven’t done so already. It’s an easy access free-to-play title with crossplay built-in for all platforms and doesn’t immediately try to nickel-and-dime you to death with add-ons and other items. The stuff you can buy is purely cosmetic, and there are plenty of earnable options available without needing to spend anything upfront. Also, it’s really fun to play, and as a big Monster Hunter fan, it’s nice to have a viable alternative to spend time with.

    It has a beautiful art style going for it and fun behemoth fights as well as weapon mechanics.

    Dauntless comes bursting out of early access with one of the best, most original, and most polished games in the free-to-play space. With tons of content, amazing battles, a great matchmaking system, and endless room to grow, Dauntless is going to be around for a long, long time. Beyond highly recommended, Dauntless is compulsory, obligatory, required gaming.

    The weapon variety and a mix of cool Behemoths to fight makes it one of the best free-to-play games that I’ve ever jumped into and I just love how the game doesn’t attack you with microtransactions. There’s a lot of value and fun to be had in Dauntless, especially considering the non-existent cost of entry.

    A good free-to-play, with simple Monster Hunter gameplay element at its base, but only them.

    There are definitely some things that the developers need to iron out, and should if they want to keep their impressive player base, but as it stands right now Dauntless has a very strong base that can be built upon moving forward. If you’re looking for a casual adventure to go on with or without your friends, building your character from the ground up, this is one to dip your toes in for sure.

    Dauntless is a jolly little co-op hunting RPG buried under a mess of F2P jargon. There's some good fun to be had here, and players who fall in love with the action will have no problem putting down some money to thank the developers, but most will dip their toes into Dauntless, enjoy themselves for a bit, and then sit back and wait for the next Monster Hunter World expansion.

The only small problem with it, for me, is the fact that the player has to play for months to get a virtual currency for skins, which encourages the use of real money, but this only applies to cosmetics. 9/10 Expand

    I only managed to play a few hours the morning it came out. Very slow times to join public hunts, 5+ minute queues for solo hunts to launch,I only managed to play a few hours the morning it came out. Very slow times to join public hunts, 5+ minute queues for solo hunts to launch, extreme slow down on the vanilla ps4. Since then its been 3 days since launch and I've tried several times each day to play again, I'm already greeted with a login screen saying the game is full and there is a 20,000+ queue that never goes down, they don't seem to have trouble making server space for their other games strangely. Final score 1 out of 10 since the game is unplayable. Expand

    Terrible frame rate, terrible gameplay with no option to lock on the enemy so you have to restart camera every 5 seconds to see what movesTerrible frame rate, terrible gameplay with no option to lock on the enemy so you have to restart camera every 5 seconds to see what moves enemies are doing and the worst thing I've never I'll see is that you can fuze your perks into one better but it takes 24 hours and you can speed it up by a special currency...this belongs to a mobile game not game by epic games. Alsi the servers are almost every time full first I've played it i was waiting in queue where was 60k players in front of me... Microtrasactions are almost everywhere and the hunt missions are really boring that means you'll be on a big map with no enemies only one boss that you have to find and all the bosses I've played are the same only reskined with almost same move sets so they are very predictable and easy. If you want game where you killing a monsters buy dark souls or monster hunter because this piece of crap doesn't worth your time. Expand
