Monster Hunter Generations kombiniert das beste aus der Serie mit netten und teilweise flauschigen Neuerungen, schafft es aber immer noch einen wirklich angenehmen Start für Neulinge zu bieten und unterliegt den Limitierungen durch den 3DS. Monster Hunter Veteranen können hier ohne Bedenken zugreifen und trotz schlechter Tutorials, bietet Generations immer noch einen der besten Einstiege in die Serie.

Monster Hunter Generations remains an experience that excites most in the thrill of the chase, wrestling with once proud beasts as you bring them to their knees. It presents an adventure of a lifetime, and continued evolution of the core idea results in an experience that rewards at every turn.

In all, the game feels like it is the developers testing the waters of ideas, but they pulled from their older games to give something to the long time players of the series.

So far, there are no news yet whether or not it will be ported over to the WiiU or to other consoles but the game is already doing well where it’s at right now. Again, MHGen is a good introductory game since Monster Hunter isn’t really a lore-heavy game. If you are into action and you love hunting, Monster Hunter Generations is absolutely worth to pick-up.

Overall, this game is a great entry into the series, with very few flaws. With the addition of Hunter Arts and Styles, you can customize your playstyle in a large variety of ways, with over 50 combinations of Hunter weapons and styles, not even counting Arts. With a few additions of new monsters, and a large selection of older beasties, there’s more than enough content for this game to be a flagship title, and it’s certainly a must-buy for anyone that loves Monster Hunter, and definitely worth looking into if you don’t already love the series. With a wonderful set of visual upgrades, and even some new challenges to overcome, there’s no reason not to pick this game up.
