Critic Reviews for Monster Hunter Generations

The fresh arts and styles help mask the musty taste of recycled material, but Generations is still a new recipe with old ingredients.

Monster Hunter Generations hits the core tenets of what makes this series great. Great gear drives the lust for the hunt even on the small scale, but the big, spectacular fights ultimately matter the most. Generations’ tweaked combat adds just the right tools to make slaying epic boss monsters a fun activity that’s just as fun online or off. Playable companions help shake up the gathering game without taking away resources, and its fun to play as a wackier character. Generations only falters during slower moments spent on fetch quests and in wrangling through menus before the hunt.

Predictably impenetrable, but cut through the leathery hide and there's enough great game in here to give a Tigrex indigestion.

The best Monster Hunter yet, with some useful improvements in terms of combat variety and accessibility for new players – even if it still falls short of the series’ full potential.

The latest installment in Capcom's popular monster-slaying franchise adds exciting ways to stay alive, but it doesn't solve the series long-standing issues.

Keeping with the tradition of Monster Hunter sequels, Generations doesn't rock the boat. Instead, it doubles down on the core formula, while tweaking several existing features to make them much friendlier. Overall, it's an experience designed for Monster Hunter veterans—but one that also extends a helping hand to newcomers.
