Monster Hunter Rise mixes classic Monster Hunter ideas with some of World's best improvements and a whole bunch of clever new mechanics of its own.

Monster Hunter Rise is a great adventure, providing fascinating new tools like the Wirebug and walking a fine line between arcade and fast-paced HD gameplay. The Rampages are a neat new addition when used sparingly, but a reliance on online hunts to finish Rise's story is a puzzling step.

Audience Reviews

Recommended
Great but short (relatively). It's well-worth the money but compared to other first (non-expansion) releases of MH games like World, 3 Portable, and Generations, it feels lacking in content. The rampages are also really not fun, but thankfully you don't have to do them too much and mostly can just focus on the rest of the game. Barely anything new is added in High Rank either,
