    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.

As a veteran this game has brought me back to my roots and now shares the masterpiece of the series in a greater worldwide light, much to the delight of fans who have already been singing its praises for the past decade.

They've managed to make a AAA Monster Hunter that stays true to the previous entries, while adding it's own unique flair.

Yet got quite a few things that frustrates you but I still like and comparing to other games, this will be the best one so far. It might be very hard for someone who don't know or just started out (like me at the beginning), every actions your character makes it's quite detailed so get stuck when stunned, or drawing weapons etc that slow and you die because of it. but once you get used to it, it's very fun. I love all the weapon choices and upgrades. Expand

    Monster Hunter World is basically more of the same, if you've played any of the previous entries into the long standing series you'll pickMonster Hunter World is basically more of the same, if you've played any of the previous entries into the long standing series you'll pick this up with no problem. 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.

    No video game should deserve overwhelming praise just because it may have slightly improved some aspects from any previous entries. MonsterNo video game should deserve overwhelming praise just because it may have slightly improved some aspects from any previous entries. Monster Hunter: World has got to be one of the most overrated games I've ever played. The controls are messy and the combat is slow and sticky with an apparent broken lock-on system. The story is weak with light and childish presentation accompanied by horrendous lip-sync. The online matchmaking is often unreliable and the arena seems to be socially dead. Worst of all, the entire game is basically a grind with no means to an end (this could probably be said with all Monster Hunter games though).

    It's just not fun for me. I tried so hard getting into it, but after 30+ hours of doing the same objectives over and over again in different missions I just wasn't enjoying it at all. I will give it props for good music, beautifully detailed environments, and the game itself to be very solidly made and nearly free of technical issues. But aside from occasionally having fun in co-op, I can't help but feel like my money was somewhat wasted by being pressured into thinking something rather repetitive and generic was worth investing time into. I would never dare call it an awful game in a public place, but it's just not for me. This is my first and last Monster Hunter.
