    i've rarely witness an extension with so much new material.... there are like 50 to 100 hours more easily to play again.
    Superbe extension , contenu gigantesque et tout les aspects du jeu de base sont ameliorés, ca va grinder sévére pendant des centaines d'heures... et graphiquement sur OneX ca depote bien ( mode graphismes conseillé par digital foundry )

    Amazing expansion! It adds everything the game needed, now it is a complete and proper MH experience. This is one of the best if not the best MH games, don't be deceived by people who are salty that it is not on a certain system ;)

    While the monsters don't pose much more of a threat than the tempered monsters one could find at the end of Monster Hunter: World, they have nearly triple the health bar. This has the effect of lengthening but not deepening the experience. Increased randomness in decoration acquisition and some strange quality-of-life downgrades make Iceborne feel like a sidegrade to the original game,While the monsters don't pose much more of a threat than the tempered monsters one could find at the end of Monster Hunter: World, they have nearly triple the health bar.

    The endgame may well justify the $40 pricetag, but the boring first 6 hours seriously undermine that value proposition. If you mastered the base game and seek a greater challenge, it.may be some time before you find it in Iceborne.

    Iceborne expanded on MHW in a way that most games' DLC cannot come close to matching. You will tell when you play this game how much attention to detail was taken by the CapCom developers. The addition of the Seliana base along with Hoarfrost Reach adds an element to the base game that isn't necessarily missing however is appreciated to even out weapon elements, monsters, and the gameIceborne expanded on MHW in a way that most games' DLC cannot come close to matching.

    The customization of weapons, armor, charms, tools, decorations, and newly added Pendants all bolster the initial games offering doubling the content as well as raising the max rarity to rarity 12. This is Iceborne's most compelling strength as it adds hundreds of hours of additional gameplay for $40.

    I definitely would recommend this game to anyone interested in this genre of gaming. It is the best game in its niche category. And whats better - there are no in-game micro-transactions!

    This is one of, if not the best expansions of this year. Monster Hunter: Iceborne has enough content to have it's own fully fledged sequel. Plus, it's more Monster Hunter. What could be better?

    Despite it being an expansion pack, Iceborne is pretty much another game built upon the many layers of Monster Hunter: World. It adds new monsters, a new location, and new armour and weapons to customise, but Iceborne also delivers new details that are fleshed into the core title. The Clutch Claw mechanic transforms the way combat works for the base game, as well as the expansion, and the monster fights are as epic as ever. Each monster gets their own platform to shine, and Iceborne does not end with the completion of the campaign. As most Monster Hunter fans should know by now, concluding this expansions campaign is only the beginning.

    Monster Hunter World: Iceborne takes what was great about the base game and provides more of it. There are so many weapons and gear choices that it feels like you are your character. Plus, the battles are epic and the new areas look amazing.
