Critic Reviews for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin

A beautifully realised old school JRPG whose only downfall is its story of all things.

Cute and approachable, but with enough bite to satisfy.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a beautifully presented JRPG with a plethora of fun things to do and deep systems I happily got lost in – but a few issues leave it short of being flawless.

A clever reinterpretation of classic Monster Hunter action in the form of a Japanese role-playing game. Although it can often seem a little too oversimplified compared to the mainline titles.

Hatching Monsties and battling alongside them against bigger monsters is very fun and pulls its weight more than the lackluster story

Capcom's new Monster Hunter spin-off is a solid JRPG for those who enjoy collecting and raising monsters.

What Monster Hunter Stories as a whole truly offers is an expansive look into the Monster Hunter universe through a more welcoming lens. It’s not as deep (in ways that both hurt and help its case), but that’s by design. Just know what you’re getting into and you should have a fun time with Monster Hunter Stories 2.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a great JRPG that blends the spirit of Monster Hunter with turn-based combat and exploration. The central story is good, but it's the loot loop and party building that really draws you in. It may not represent a huge leap forward from the original game, but this is a fantastic title for fans of either the main Monster Hunter series or JRPGs in general.
