      Game of the Year Caliber

      I am new to Capcom’s Monster Hunter universe, but glad that my friend prodded and convinced me to purchase this game. I had watched some preview videos on IGN, Gamespot, etc. and the hype for this is well warranted. Upon first loading up the game, I was impressed by the level of detail in character customization, which is just a small preview of the how comprehensive the character, weapons, armor, etc. customization is. Graphics and overall presentation are splendid as designed with the Havok game engine. The environments are life like and add to the gameplay mechanics as hiding, running, and scavaging the terrain greatly impact success and failure as you venture out. The story is nothing noteworthy, but the adventures are nuances and scaled for a variety of gameplay difficulty. Oh yeah, the monsters are diverse and unique with some exceptional battles as well as some that are a bit lackluster. This game does have its areas for improvement. Namely it feels buggy and unnecessarily complex setting up quests and general multiplayer game modes with people already in your party. I will pin this on Capcom for not making the ability to play with friends more accessible and user friendly. For a game that touts co-op play, I would call one of its largest selling points to be in drastic need of repair. Overall, this is an addictive game you can play solo but is epic when accompanied by friends or partners— when it connects properly and you have finished watching non-skip cutscenes. This one gets my vote for best game of the early 2018 year. Now fix co-op!!!

      If you aren't used to jrpg's, you will be overwhelmed at the start by the multitude of choices and mechanics at the beginning. If you have never played a monster hunter game, do yourself a favor and read a few of the starter guides out on the web to help. It is an absolute blast to track and hunt down monsters, but there are plenty of lows to go along with the high. Stopping at the precise angle and pressing B to "see" tracks or feathers etc is fine if its one every 100 yards or so, but it gets old real fast when its every 5-6 feet. There is no true target lock, so your best combo can glance off if you are a smidgen out of alignment. You will need to farm for items to gain incremental improvements, with no promise of a drop. So, exhaustive 45 minute fight,chase,kill, oh snap son you didnt get a beak to drop, so go do it again! Ugh. There isnt an ability to pause, so if real life requires your attention, you will lose whatever time you have invested in a hunt. This is a game best taken in small doses, 1-3 hunts, then go do something with your life. It is very fun, and quite rewarding when you master taking down the harder creatures, (less so the 75th time you have to kill it farming), giving you a Dark Souls sense of accomplishment. I'll never forget taking on a great jagra and having a Anjanath (T-rex) bust out of the forest and scare the bejeesus out of me. The world feels alive & even though I tire after a few hunts, I am always itching to go back for more. This is not a pick up and play title. But if you are willing to take it in small doses, and dedicate some time to learning its intricacies, you will be well rewarded. Happy Hunting!

      Great Monster Hunter game. It does have a bit of a learning curve and the missions start out fairly easy, but there is plenty of quests and various things to be done to occupy a lot of hours without getting boring. The game has the nice signature difficulty increases as you progress and the weapons and moves have worked smoothly thus far. The graphics look amazing compared to earlier nintendo DS games. Framerate can be a bit choppy even on the Xbox one X with the "prioritize framerate" setting, but there is a lot of information to display and its smooth enough to be nice to play and in smaller areas the framerate is great. No load times between zones is a great feature. I can't wait to continue playing. Bestbuy sent me my preorder codes for the armor set and charm within an hour of picking up the game. They also had the steelbook case, though they initially thought they were out of stock so I am not surprised they ran out. Bottom line: Great game of hunting monsters and grinding armor sets. Just get it, you won't be disappointed.

      An amazing adventure game

      I'm new to the Monster Hunter games, having never played any of the previous games. I took a chance and gave the game a try, and now I'm addicted to this game. It does take time to learn how things works, from crafting armor and weapons, how to fight monsters and prepare for battle, to researching and learning about each monsters and Elder Dragons. But once you learn and take your time, the game is amazing and the grinding for new gear is fun. While the main story is short and nothing special, teaming up with other Hunters online is a blast, even for ones like myself who aren't into online gaming. Be prepared that a lot of the battles will take over a half hour to complete, and even then you may fail the objective. I found it easier than Dark Souls, but almost on par with the mechanics. This is not for someone into a quick playthrough or someone easily frustrated. But if you are willing to take the time and put in the effort, Monster Hunter World is one of the best games I have played this generation of game systems.

      What a Monster of a game!

      First and foremost, I have never, ever, played a Monster Hunter game; so I came Into this one apprehensive. Those feelings seemed to be proven by the first two hours of the game: tutorial screen afteer, tutorial screen, tons of things to learn, with no real practice. Luckily, the designers kind of got that, so they made the first few bosses a cake walk, while also pushed the MP aspect of the game heavily. After ten hours of streaming on Mixer while playing, I got advice from legacy fans and players on how to proceed; this turned the game into an amazing experience. Each weapon and set of armor have their own combos, properties, and feel. It's staggering at first, but soon you're as addicted as Cali Valley girl given her Dad's Plat, No-Limits card and set loose on the town. I've been mix and matching buffs as if I were getting fitted for my wedding. Great Experience! Thanksgiving, Capcom! Follow me on Mixer to share in the fun. Mixer.com/downwithfire

      The combination of great graphics and awesome game mechanics makes this a great game to play. I just started playing this game and have about 12 hours in and have yet to fight a boss type of monster. I have enjoyed every minute I have played so far and can’t wait to keep discovering new adventures and creatures to defeat! I would have given this a 5 Star but I feel like the developer could have done a better job with the character you play. At the beginning you are able to customize your own character to your preference with good amount of options that allows you to be creative but you quickly realize that your character does not have a voice in the game which was a bit of a let down but does not take away much from what the experience is with Mostet Hunter.

      High Hopes, Didn't Measure Up

      Let me start off by saying this: the game looks fantastic. Sadly I have not been able to enjoy myself with the title. The combat does not mesh very well with me, feeling cumbersome and ineffective, but that is just me. I had gotten tired of doing very repetitive tasks with little reward in my eyes at least. I have not tried out the multiplayer aspects of the game as of yet, mostly because I cannot bring myself to recommend this game to friends. I believe I have reached the point where I will just try to blitz through and get as many achievements as possible before trading the game in. I very much so recommend to try the game before buying and doing some research in how much longevity you feel you can get from the game.

      This game has such hype so I bought it and although the graphics are amazing, the gameplay leaves much to be desired and the multiplayer is not set up well at all. Do not expect to play this game multiplayer unless you have friends to invite. The way the game is setup also makes it difficult to even play multiplayer, as you would all need to be on the same quest to get credit, otherwise people are just helping you through your story line quest. It does not auto-save as well which is strange. makes you manually save after crafting items, etc or all those changes are lost. This is a single-player CO-OP style game with bad CO-OP interface. Graphics 10-10, Gameplay 7-10. With the best buy 20% off new titles, this is an acceptable price.
