Sunbreak isn't something that every Monster Hunter fan needs to go out of their way to experience. But it is new, challenging content for Rise players along with Follower Quests and a new endgame to grind through. If you're a fan of the current formula, then the expansion is well worth jumping in to.

MH Rise Sunbreak is a worthy expansion adding new monsters, locales, questing options and gameplay mechanics worth 50+ hours of gameplay even for casual players. Fully recommended for anyone who enjoyed the base game, and a great deal for anyone buying the game with expansion.

If you loved Monster Hunter Rise and wanted more of it, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is going to be exactly what you want. The dazzling cutscenes for the story and new music are a bonus surprise that add to the scope of the scenario and add a lot of polish to the presentation. The attention to detail is staggering and it will be interesting to see how Capcom will top this in the inevitable sequel.

Sunbreak expansion is everything you could hope from Monster Hunter and more. Newly (and mostly welcomed) addition of Monsters are both scary and fun to fight and those 14 weapons felts so fresh somehow. You can go into Super Saiyan mode or can have self inflicted wounds for boosted damage output. This time Capcom has gone nuts and all the players will be mindblown with overflowing content and new ways to play their beloved game. Monster Hunter Sunbreak is a delicious treat for fans of the series and a real “rise” of the bar for the genre.

All told, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is more of the same core experience, complete with the best gameplay the series has ever seen. While it cuts out one of the base game's unique modes and features, follower quests are a fantastic addition for offline play. The story could use some better pacing, but the mission structure continues to be spread out very well with new and returning monsters becoming available at a relatively decent pace - aside from the post-game grind to the final monster. Regardless, Sunbreak is an astounding expansion and a must-have for any hunter for both Offline and Online play.

Did you play Monster Hunter Rise and have fun? Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will be even better or at least as good. The Japanese listened to the opinions of the community to speed up and diversify the most important element of the game – combat. And again, the production encourages you to compete, collect, duel, search for and repeat these activities until the console is unloaded.

My main Monster Hunter Rise file went into Sunbreak north of 230 hours, and I put another hundred into a hunter on an alternate profile that was used for review purposes. I don't think I'll double that time on my main before the next Monster Hunter comes out, but it might get close. Sunbreak is a must for anyone who's ever stared down a Rathalos and lived to tell the tale.

Still, it doesn’t take away from the fact that for those up to task, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak delivers. You could say it’s just more of the same but that would be doing this expansion a disservice. Like Monster Hunter World’s Iceborne expansion before it, this is essentially a full game served up as DLC. With its generous number of gameplay improvements and hunting opportunities, it’s an absolute must-have for series veterans. And while it’s still not the most accessible game on the whole, it’s undoubtedly the best starting point for aspiring hunters.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is pretty much everything a Monster Hunter Rise player could ask for, with its array of improvements and additions big and small which go from new monsters, new characters, new abilities for the weapons, as well as the Master Rank, the Switch Skills and other elements that players will be delighted to discover. Truly an unmissable expansion that does wonders for an already excellent game.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak makes a decent effort to improve the endgame, but it’s the subtle improvements to combat and some worthwhile QoL changes that stand out in the expansion.
