Whilst a near perfect Monster Hunter in my eyes. If it contained better quality of life implementations to reduce the plethora of loading screens and responding to quests (which could be done in a single menu/mail system). This could be an easy ten, otherwise I’m shaking in anticipation for generation five, the Hollywood movie currently in production, Double Cross and Monster Hunter Stories coming to the west (hopefully).
The merits of streamlining revealed
At first 'Monster Hunter Generations' seems like a rehash of past games, but some play time will show that it is one of the most innovative in the series. The sheer amount of experimentation, adventures, and general fun to be had with this game is boundless.
The new mechanics and features — well welcomed — don’t make up for just how overly familiar everything feels, or the overall lack of new monsters and material, and I’m not sure if Generations ever entirely justifies itself.
Monster Hunter Generations is the greatest hits of the Monster Hunter franchise. It's not going to change your mind if you never understood the hype, but if you can easily spend dozens of hours grinding monsters for equipment, be prepared for a lot of sleepless nights. Newcomers will find a lot to like here in terms of gameplay and pure design. If you're ever going to get into the Monster Hunter franchise, Generations is the best place to start.
If you’re up for a challenge, MH Generations is an incredibly rewarding and satisfying experience.
You see that monster? You can hunt it.
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.
