    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 to the series, I can't even begin to express my gratitude for this amazing release. I have longed for a proper release (outsideAs a veteran to the series, I can't even begin to express my gratitude for this amazing release. I have longed for a proper release (outside of Japan) for Monster Hunter since the original on PS2. This series deserves the attention it is getting, it has been LONG overdue.

    I feel sorry for anyone that can't get past their own nuances to allow this game the chance it deserves. If you can play Dark Souls or The Witcher and embrace their unique mechanics, then you can play Monster Hunter World. Too many players expect the controls and combat to behave like every other Action RPG. But can you really call yourself a gamer if you can’t tolerate the learning curve?

    For those of you who are enjoying this iteration, prepare yourself for G-Rank and a wide plethora of FREE DLC! Welcome to the family and may your journey be as rewarding and joyous as I would hope it be!

    I've never played a Monster Hunter game before, but I'm glad I picked this up.
    Not to mention the game is very beautiful, it is really fun to play. There is a sense of danger when walking in the wild and it's very interesting to try all the different weapons.
    The best part is the fact you can play this with your friends.

    Great game that loses its essence to evolve into something bigger.
    the only drawback is your BSO, how bad it is!

    Poorly done, outdated combat and AI, **** story, not that interesting, its raging because the game is so dumb made, but addictive and looksPoorly done, outdated combat and AI, **** story, not that interesting, its raging because the game is so dumb made, but addictive and looks good and this game is for specific people. The good side about this game is that it welcomes new comers with open arms and the environment and all of the open world feels natural just like a living place, unfortunately it just feels like that at the very beginning and then you realize how poorly made this game is. Sometimes i just dont get JRPG's they put a ton of mechanics outdated graphics and in some JRPG's the story is bad(like this game for example)(and lets not talk about the lip synce and the bad cut scenes) . But were here for the multiplayer are we ?.. right? well here comes the fun part, if you have friends this game for multiplayer is better than destiny 2, you have a ton to do and you can even invite other people to play with you via SOS flare or just joining other peoples quests. Overall this game is a 7 because of the poor design and outdated gameplay that mad me uninstall it i wish i could get a refund via PSN because its not worth my money and time the most awful part are the tutorials there are a ton and its like reading history books and it just makes the game boring AF !!!! and a ton of recycled elements in it. Destiny 2 is way fun than this outdated **** ! how could people give it a 9 ?????? Wait for a sale and price drop ! Expand
