Monster Hunter: World is the fifth game in the Japanese franchise Monster Hunter, which is about hunting giant beasts. It is set in a medieval fantasy setting, on a continent known as the New World that is being colonized by the humans from the Old World. The plot revolves around a dragon migration called Elder Crossing. Your protagonist is a hunter, whose name and appearance can be customized. You traveled from the Old World to study and hunt the dragons and other local monsters.
The hunter, accompanied by an assistant, starts at the city of Astera, from where they can freely wander the open world. There are six regions in the New World, each with its own base camp. The camps are where you have to thoroughly prepare before every expedition, gathering equipment and provision. Before you can fight monsters, they need to be tracked down using Scout flies and studied to discover their habits, strengths, and weaknesses. There are no character levels, so your hunter’s effectiveness relies on the hunting gear you have equipped. Advanced armor and weapons can be created using a detailed crating system. Many items that you found on missions, including body parts of monsters, can be used for crafting.

Monster Hunter: World reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
I used to spend several thousand Hours with Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and when I didn't have a PSP Anymore I continued to play it through an Emulator on my Smartphone so I can already claim that I'm a Veteran. (Could include Spoilers) The PC release probably has brought in many new Players who had never played any of the Monster Hunter Games before. These Players probably do not know that in previous Monster Hunter Games you still had to craft Pickaxes yourself and then cancel them, could only take the same with Beetle nets, only a maximum of 20 Wetstones, which you needed Color bombs to mark Opponents Or if you wanted to pick up Herbs or Mushrooms, the Player first squatted and searched the Ground for the Raw Materials, meanwhile, the first Monsters are already nibbling at you. The Developers have made Monster Hunter World much more fluid. In Monster Hunter World you can collect Raw Materials such as Herbs, Mushrooms, Honey, Beetles, Spider Nets etc. as you pass by and if you have herbs and Honey in the Inventory, for example, these become potions automatically if you don't already have 10/10 Potions. Pickup, Nets, Fishing and Wetstones are always included and do not have to make them yourself as they are not consumed or break. What annoyed me about Monster Hunter Freedom Unite was the percentage Of the way it was to produce the percentage if you wanted to make a maxi potion, for example, you had a 70% chance that it works out, but if it didn't work out, you wasted a lot of Raw Materials and got into serious Situations, for example, during a Fight, this really stimulates you. Thankfully, this is no longer the case with Monster Hunter World. The Combat System has also improved very much it is much faster, there are Traps on the Map that you can trigger, you can jump on Monsters and bring them down, more Combinations with Weapons and also new Weapons that have come to it, you have Also a small Crossbow on the Arm to shoot any Projectiles or Capsules and thus that you can give your Paliko (your Cat), for example, a Weapon with Paralysis damage, you have good Chances again to do some real Damage. To the Graphics I don't have much to say the Game looks very good. For the Performance I don't say much with me the Game runs very smoothly. (i7-4790k and gtx 1070 Palit 8GB) I've hardly had any Lags until now only drops my FPS when 4 Players spin on a Monster and one of them is Double-blade fighter and who then makes his 50-song batting Combo in 3 Seconds. I have to admit playing this Game with a Keyboard I absolutely can't. From Monster Hunter Freedom Unite I am used to the PSP and so I also play the Game on the PC with a Controller and it goes very well because the controls are almost the Same as on the PSP. I can only highly recommend the Game because I have already searched for it "something" and with my almost 100 hours is still not finished and still a lot of Content is waiting for me through the most closed Investigations, optional Quests and Event Quests. Good Hunting and lots of Fun Zor from the TDS group wishes you
MHW feels like an improvement and a downgrade for several reasons, it has improved in a lot of annoying things that keeps things sped up, but also, feels like they did the opposite in order to get things friendly for newcomers. The game play is better than ever, things go fast and the action is non stop, the world and the monsters look amazing, my issue is that the classic monsters behave and attack identically as in previous games and doesn't feel that they have a better AI and that feels like a let down, as for the world, when this game was unveiled, they promise a very unique and organic environment in which the player or the monster will have the advantage depending on its usage, but I think this mechanic feels underdeveloped or artificial. That aside, I enjoyed my time (which was a lot) in MHW and will come back when there are a lot of updates, as for veterans it will be amazing to see monsters like never before and for newcomers is the most friendly introduction to the series yet.

A big fan of the whole series for many years. This part is the best thing that happened to Monster Hunter. Love it!

An amazing game. Never played Monster Hunter before, and I'm glad I gave this a shot. Spent over 200 hours already. The only downside is the RNG with the Giant and Mini crowns... if you want a platinum trophy, good luck.

If you wanted a more complicated, more hand-holding, and worse version of The Witcher 3 that was made for children, look no further.

Otherwise....there are so many more ways to spend time that are better than this.

Playstation version is easily 9/10, however Xbox messes up with the game hard. It was designed to be a multiplayer game, and that fact that you couldn’t play with your friends from the beginning was just a shame. It is ridiculous that nobody tested multiplayer systems. This is really a mood-killer for something that could be the game of the year. So play it if you have a PS4. If you are an Xbox user… Well, buy yourself a PS4!
Amazing game that requires you to think first and then strike. The game will treat your hard if you fight without a plan. Weapons, environment, enemies, hidden secrets are very diverse and a bit overwhelming, but they are worth every minute to master.
I tried it and got bored very quickly. The game is very repetitive: get a quest, find a monster, beat the monster, follow it after it runs away, kill it, rinse and repeat. No immersion or creativity whatsoever. Controls are clunky. Graphics could be okay, but the white haze washed out all the beauty. I’m honestly surprised lots of people are genuinely enjoying it.
It is a great point to start if you are new to the series. It might seem repetitive for sometimes, however it is a great game from Monster Hunter Universe and it is very immersive. Definitely worth your time.
