    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.

    Now that Iceborne has been announced I thought I'd give it a second shot and I'm so glad I did. I love the weighty feel of swinging my buster sword and how intense each hunt can feel. Finally taking down the anjanath was just damn fun and really rewarding.
    Monster Hunter is now up there with Yakuza in the hall of amazing Japanese games I didn't know much about but now dearly love :).
    I can see how someone might pick this up and not get what all the hype is about but if you're patient with its systems it might really surprise you. Happy hunting :).

    A big improvement on MH main series, you see bad review? They are just same salty nintendrone who hating the game because not released onA big improvement on MH main series, you see bad review? They are just same salty nintendrone who hating the game because not released on their beloved console.. People who said themself veteran and hate this game because it become easy? You can search pro player on youtube, and all of them love this new MH titles.. So don't be afraid to try this game, newcomer friendly on tutorial information, but still keep the chalenge for the player.. Btw this is not dmc, kh, or something like that.. Not just hack and slah, but more into slash, dodge, trap, guard, bomb kind of game.. Happy hunting!! Expand

New players will also be happy to know this is the most beginner friendly and expansive monster hunter title to date. However while they did a great job of making the core mechanics more accessible, some of the more esoteric stuff is still poorly explained. My biggest contentions however are the ugly character models with mass effect andromeda tier facial expressions, and the clunky and outdated interface for putting a party together for multiplayer, this really needs doing away with in favour of an easier to use matchmaking system more in line with today's multiplayer titles.

    All in all it's a good game, probably one of the best to date, but it's held back by a refusal to innovate on longstanding and outdated systems.

It's rinse and repeat.This game had me hooked for about 90 hours (which isn't bad for any game) but eventually I found it got very boring. It's rinse and repeat. Over and over again. Kill monster,upgrade armor,ad infinitum. Probably for people who are into multi-player games. Solo campaigns will eventually get too tedious to want to continue. Still looks great though,and I did enjoy the game...until I didn't. Expand
