Monster Hunter: World is easily the finest entry in the franchise to date. The move to PS4 has only done it favours, with stunning visuals and environments that you'll want to get lost in. Flashy, satisfying combat will lead to many water cooler chats, and vastly improved online features make it a breeze to find help. It's a real shame that Capcom still hasn't found an ideal way to welcome new players, but if you are able to sink your teeth into World, you'll discover an incredible action RPG experience.
They created an immersive living and breathing world, allowing players to fully enjoy the charm of the titular monsters within a credible ecosystem. Combined with solid improvements in story and gameplay, this makes Monster Hunter World a must-have game for veteran fans and novices alike.
Bold and newly beautiful, Monster Hunter: World demands to be played on its own terms and rewards you with an amazing RPG.
Monster Hunter World is an incredible game, the new consoles have simplified many old gameplay mechanics and the gameplay has an enviable variety and depths. Too bad about the lack of true innovative mechanics and the technical aspect.

Monster Hunter World successfully proves that it's both about size and how you use it.
Monster Hunter has been in need of a big change for years, and this reboot-of-sorts could have easily gone wrong. Instead, Capcom took a careful look at Monster Hunter's design and cut all the fat while leaving the series trademark dense gameplay completely intact. All the changes, from the broad, sweeping ones to the granular alterations, only serve to improve an already winning formula. The next generation of Monster Hunter has finally begun, and, with Monster Hunter World, it's off to an incredibly good start.
This is the modernization that Monster Hunter definitely needed. Not only is it the most dynamic title in the series to date, it's just a fantastic action role-playing game. Even if you've bounced off the series in the past, I highly recommend giving Monster Hunter: World a try. It's where the series finally truly clicked for me, and that is very much by design. Capcom has updated their formula for a new generation, and it's a real treat for all.
The series has never been so beautiful and accessible. Nevertheless, Monster Hunter World remains a challenging action game for grind-happy hunters.

Longtime fans might lament some changes but the series' soul remains intact. If you have ever been curious about Monster Hunter, or bounced off a previous iteration, there's never been a better time to pick up a sword.
Monster Hunter World is a demanding game, but if you're willing to invest in it, you'll be rewarded with one of the most rewarding, addictive, and nuanced experiences of all time.
All in all, Capcom has crafted a large, sprawling RPG that's addictive and entertaining without watering down any sense of depth.
Monster Hunter: World is one of the more rewarding action role-playing games I've played in recent years.
If you've been skipping out on Monster Hunter games for a while because they seem to blend together, jumping into World is your chance to get in. Just know that Capcom hasn't really shaken up the formula enough to piss off veterans or appeal to people who don't welcome grinding with open arms.
Monster Hunter World is the true reboot of one of Capcom's flagship series.

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.
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 one of the best RPGs you'll ever play, and the most inviting the series has ever been. It's clear to see why the franchise has such a dedicated following, and now that fanbase is set to grow ever larger thanks to the incredible steps the developer has taken to make this game more welcoming to many more players.
Every hunt in Monster Hunter: World demands so much attention from the player. There is a 50 minute time limit precisely because your prey are so tough to kill, and the game makes sure that you put in the effort and dedication required to take it down.
Capcom will hunt new players with his biggest Monster Hunter game. At the same time it continues to feed the hardcore fans with a title that has all the keys to the series and important news. But now we will be facing bigger and more beautiful monsters and environments.
