    Monster Hunter: World effortlessly meets its high expectations and delivers what may well be the best RPG of this generation. The world is as fascinating as it is beautiful, jam-packed with wonders and dangers of equal measure. Each and every system within has been carefully crafted and seamlessly feed into one another magnificently well. The game remains in-depth yet surprisingly accessible throughout the entirety of play, welcoming and uniting newcomers and returning fans alike. It’s a truly breathtaking adventure. Simply put, and I don’t say this lightly, Monster Hunter: World is a masterpiece.

    It's great to see that the franchise makes a triumphant debut on Microsoft's machine because many gamers expressed concerns about optimization and other issues before launch. If you like challenging experiences along the lines of Dark Souls, be sure to give Monster Hunter: World a go. The game will keep you engaged for dozens of hours because it takes patience more than anything to become a legendary hunter.

    Monster Hunter World is bursting with content and is a game that you can easily get over 100 hours in.

    Monster Hunter: World captures that feel of hunting, and despite its technical quirks and poor design decisions, if you've got a group of friends to play with it comes highly recommended. If you're running solo, you might be better waiting for a sale.

If you’re a button-masher, you’ll absolutely hate it. If you want deep, immersive combat that requires forethought and a plan, you’ll love it. There is so much diversity and depth in the weapons and environments and in the systems of the game that it can be a little overwhelming at first, but it’s worth every bit of time it takes to master them. Add all that depth to a beautiful, immersive environment with all sorts of hidden secrets and you wind up with a strong Game of the Year candidate.

    Edit: I get the gripes with multiplayer right now, but it’ll be fixed within a week. Do yourself a favor and pick this game up.

SiEl mejor Monster Hunter en apartado gráfico, es muy bonito, las bestias son impresionantes, difícil, cooperativo, intenso y full grindeo. Si te han gustado los Monters Hunters anteriores este también te gustará, no paran de meterle contenido gratuito, continuamente meten mas bestias para cazar, armaduras muy bonitas, todas las armas que siempre hemos tenido y alguna nueva, Los mejores Felines de la saga, en definitiva un muy buen juego. Quizá su punto mas negativo es que en High End no esta muy desarollado pero sin dudas un juego al que le puedes meter cientos de horas. Expand

    Not sure how to start this but this is another example of a great game spoiled by a small detail. The detail i'm talking about is the lack ofNot sure how to start this but this is another example of a great game spoiled by a small detail. The detail i'm talking about is the lack of jump button.

    The RPG side of this game is fabulous, the scenery lush and on the X at least stunning to look at. I spent a good few hours just walking around and visiting the canteen because it looks so damn good. Another plus is on the X you can choose your graphical preference between frame-rate, resolution and detail.

    When you finally get hunting the actual process is excellent. You find tracks, you wipe mucus from walls which gets you points towards a research bar. Once the bar has filled enough then the luminous tracker flies start to do their thing and lead you to the prey. Along the way though you might come across other monsters wandering around and it's up to you whether you take them on or not. So far, so good.

    But once you find the monster this is where things go bad. For all the tactics and brilliance of the RPG side the combat boils down to button-bashing. I also come back to my opening statement of the lack of a jump button; one of the main ways to attack a monster is to get on it's back and start stabbing away but the problem here is there is no way to actually jump. To be able to get on a back you have to manoeuvre the monster near a ledge and then "hope" you jump off the ledge toward the monster, it's more luck than judgement if this happens. Add in the lack of a health bar on the animals and you're at times literally stabbing in the dark.

    To sum up: a great game spoiled by the combat system.
