The truth is, Monster Hunter has always been brilliant – but it's always been niche. Monster Hunter World feels like the right game to finally crack that – a game that makes smart changes that might finally mean that a wider audience will at last fully understand, experience and enjoy that brilliance.
Monster Hunter: World is a revelation, taking a series that was once reserved for all but the most hardcore of fans and tweaking it enough to make it appeal to a new generation of gamers while still keeping its core perfectly intact.
From the gorgeous visuals to the design in its monsters and ecosystems, Capcom has made the best Monster Hunter game yet. It's just a shame it doesn't help with its complex systems an occasionally poor explanations of them.
This long standing series makes an outrageously good current gen debut. The size and scope of the environments, and the monsters in them, is awe inspiring, making Monster Hunter: World a true (lizard) king of games.
Monster Hunter: World is one of the more rewarding action role-playing games I've played in recent years.
Capcom's latest monster battler is unexpectedly accessible for a series that has a reputation for being anything but
With gameplay that will appeal to newcomers and veterans alike, Monster Hunter World is a dense, addicting adventure that hooks its claws into you and never lets go.
It may be a poor teacher with text-heavy interfaces, but Monster Hunter: World is a great entry into the franchise if you haven't played anything from the series thus far. It's polished and filled with content, and you'll regret not immersing yourself in the series sooner. It provides a challenging yet enjoyable combat system that will keep you on your toes, and the variety of menacing monsters adds new challenges and keeps things from getting dull. You'll happily trade hours of your free time for more monsters to hunt, capture, and slay.
Pitting you against everything from fire-breathing dinosaurs to fluffy bird-wyverns, this is destined to be one of 2018's best games
The main goal in the game is to simply battle gigantic monsters in epic locations. Due to this, Monster Hunter: World will keep you engaged for months.
Any issues melt away as you leap whooping from your seat, punching the air after you slay a giant beast while on your last sliver of health. In Monster Hunter: World, those heart-pounding epiphanies happen with thrilling regularity.
The series arrives for the first time on PC as a really well done adaptation. Monster Hunter World is a stable and ever so graphically satisfying experience.

When it comes to Monster Hunter, the level of depth in the game leaves a lot to talk about, and I don't think it's possible to capture everything in this review.
Capcom knocked it out of the park with Monster Hunter World.
Monster Hunter World takes a huge step towards a new audience, not simplifying, but simply optimizing the old overloaded mechanics. Old fans will be delighted. [OpenCritic note: Zelliel separately reviewed the PC (8) and PS4 (9) versions. The scores have been averaged.]

For all its flaws, Monster Hunter: World is proof that a game can be more than the sum of its parts.
There's definitely enough bang for its buck to be appealing, but we just wish that there was a little more hand-holding in the first couple of hours while you're still learning – and that's not something I thought I'd ever say about a game.
I can't honestly say it's the best Monster Hunter, as I haven't played the others, but it's the best way to get into Monster Hunter, for sure, and it stands on its own as one of the best games so far this year and likely one of my favorites going forward.
