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.

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.

Without a doubt the best and most accessible Monster Hunter ever made. The sheer amount of quality of life improvements in the game play and through out the games systems has mad this the Monster Hunter for everyone. The way online works can be a hit against it. It gets better as you learn to understand it, but it should not be so difficult to just hop in with some buds. The core game play is on point thought. Weapons are diverse, monsters are fun and the world and it's ecosystem is just stunning. If you're interested in games that are decently difficult with commit based combat I couldn't recommend it enough. If you like games I couldn't recommend it enough. Besides, it's February, you're not playing anything else.
