    Moving to real consoles has paid off for Monster Hunter. The fifth installment is bigger, nicer and funnier (a bit). In addition, a number of free addons will extend the entertainment for another dozens of hours. [Issue#283]

    This is the most audacious Monster Hunter game yet. Monster Hunter: World manages the balance between staying true to the series’ ideals and the addictive loop of combat with intimidating monsters and meaningful upgrades that fans love, while also taking a dramatic leap into a look, feel, and size that feels truly new. Its sheer depth and the commitment required is still intense, but it clearly isn’t Capcom's aim to court a casual crowd. It’s as all-consuming and incredible a ride as ever.

    I can't recommend Monster Hunter: World enough to anyone who's after possible GOTY games. It's not just the best Monster Hunter game to date, I'm pretty sure it's one of the best titles of the year, and that's a big achievement for CAPCOM and this particular franchise mostly known in Japan.

    Monster Hunter finally arrives on the new generation consoles. Its soul is intact: it is always divided in two main sectors, the preparation and the hunt, and it’s fun as ever. The hunts are long and secondary quests or activities, like collecting the pieces to craft armors and weapons, could take months. The monsters are now moved by the most complex and smooth animations we've ever seen in a videogame, but maps are not so big and interactive. Monster Hunter: World is a big step up for the series, not for the current videogames scenario.

    Monster Hunter: World scratches the itch for complexity, both in hunt for rare gear and skill with its weapons, but this time it’s a game that no one should be intimidated to get into.
  6. Monster Hunter World is going to be one of the best RPGs of 2018. It has enormous amount of content and can keep players in the game for hundreds of hours.

    I won't rehash the problems I had with World simply because they make me profoundly sad. I wanted to like the game, I hoped the new direction would bring the series to a new level, but instead, the whole thing blew up in my face like a Marshmallow Peep left in the microwave too long.

    Perfect for what it set out to do.

    In a way its a reintroduction of Monster Hunter to the world. Gripes that it catered to newbies is warranted but it was designed that way. The game stopped being niche just for being niche sake. It doenst care if its too mainstream now and less of hardcore. Capcom got something in mind for those who seek new challenge, Iceborne.

    Great gameplay loop
    No pay to win microtransactions.
    Matchmaking made easy. No long waits for a session. Just drop in killed some mons and go.
    14 unique weapons with different playstyles and buids for each. With each weapon can itself be the gameplay mechanic of other games.
    Largely skill based and knowing the movesets of movements. No OP builds. Its just plain knowing how to deal with your hunts.

    How to level up a game series which never really made a mistake: this.

    Multiplayer could have been better. To only join your friend's expedition through SOS-Signals is a bit strange. The connection in general is a bit unstable.

    That was the only negative thing I have to say. New monster and the old monster feel new. Just impressed how they were able to set up the game.

    PS: couldn't have done that on a switch.

    Monster Hunter World is a really interesting game. Once you fight a few monsters you really feel like you accomplished something. I playedMonster Hunter World is a really interesting game. Once you fight a few monsters you really feel like you accomplished something. I played solo for the first while and then a few friends started playing also to take on some of the tougher ones. I played with multiple weapons, but specialized with the long sword for the majority of the game. I grinded out the platinum for this one, which to be honest was kind of terrible. It’s easier with events now, but still getting some of those crowns can be very time consuming and repetitive. It’s a pretty great experience and taking on new monsters has a learning curve. I think this game is enjoyed more with friends, but I do know some people that are still going at it solo and love it. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. As a 12 years fan, I would like to leave a feedback on this game specifically on "monster hunter world"
    first of all i think capcom should make an after-story DLC to tell what is going to happen after when the main character defeats the final boss, this way i think story line would end perfectly. and another thing, In my opinion the production team should make the game a little bit more difficult, otherwise players who played over 100 hours are not feeling the game as challenging as they felt at the beginning
