Awesome game with lots of problems. Needs fixes as soon as possible.

There's something to be said for that in the current landscape. Monster Hunter World is a game full of people all striving to achieve their common goals within a set of gameplay mechanics that doesn't so much actively discourage going at it alone as encourage collective work, where the learning is never truly finished.
It's not the worst console port I have seen, but it surely isn't the best one. The only real flaw of the PC version of Monster Hunter World is the buggy multiplayer mode. Everything else works just fine and deserves some attention – after all, this is one of the most captivating adventures in the virtual world ever.

In the end, Capcom hasn't built this game for me. It's hard and frustrating… but for some, that's exactly what they want. While it may be more accessible to newcomers, this is still a Monster Hunter game made for the series' faithful.
Monster Hunter world manages to keep the magic of Monster Hunter but at the same time makes it appealing to new fans. This is a game that will please both newcomers and veterans.
Monster Hunter: World stomps its way onto PC, but not without suffering a couple of setbacks in the process.
Gamers have heard for years about how great the series is, and no Monster Hunter game demonstrates that better than Monster Hunter: World. The game is constantly cycling in new content to blend in with the game’s main campaign and meaty post-game with the bulk of it being free, making it hard to not praise Capcom for this feat.
A small number of flaws barely make a dent; this is the quintessential Monster Hunter experience.
Monster Hunter: World still has all the complexity expected from this series, but it dishes it out in much more palatable chunks than usual. It's still got a frightening amount of depth, but it feels manageable in a way that few in the series have pulled off before. Players may still feel a little lost from time to time, but a little guidance from series vets or other friends can drastically reduce the growing pains new players will likely experience. On top of all that, this is one of the best-feeling titles the series has had to date; so saddle up with some friends, and explore all the New World has to offer.
The PC port of Monster Hunter World isn't perfect. But despite its flaws, no other game compares to the thrill and sheer wonderment that beating a monster in a perfectly co-ordinated group can bring. In its purest essence, Monster Hunter World is simply about killing monsters to make better gear to kill bigger monsters. But boy, when it all comes off – which it does impressively frequently – no game comes close to it.
Monster Hunter World is the best game in a long-running franchise and should be recommended for newcomers to jump into a grandiose world. The stunning visuals and monsters to slay, push into new territory with next-gen consoles, as everything just feels more alive.
Monster Hunter: World finally arrives on PC with an excellent port that was well worth the extra development time.
I enjoy tracking monsters, and using their resources to advance scientific research, but I also love spending time away from the hunt where I can learn the movements of not just the giant monsters but the smaller animals, too. Sure, any animal can be hunted, and I know the name of the game means some will have to die. But the moments of observance recreate the circle of life more than the game's story and left me most excited to return to Astera with my new discoveries, whether they were monster parts or something less grisly.
For all its flaws, Monster Hunter: World is a game that manages to balance the expectations of newcomers while not straying too far from its roots. It is clear Capcom have tried their best to make it as accessible as they can without breaking tradition. This might frustrate new players who are expecting to have their hand held throughout the beginning, but if a newbie like me can pick it up in no time then it shouldn't be too difficult for you. Long-time fans are sure to love the tweaks and changes that have taken place, and will feel right at home getting back to what they love – slaying monsters. It remains to be seen how the game will continue once the online sessions open properly, and how this adds an extra dimension to the gameplay. With so much to explore and ways to play to suit a lot of different styles, this is definitely worth jumping into.
'Monster Hunter: World' represents the best the series has to offer.
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.
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.
Monster Hunter: World captures that feel of hunting, and despite its technical quirks and poor design decisions, if you've got a group of friends to play with it comes highly recommended. If you're running solo, you might be better waiting for a sale.
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.
PC players finally have the chance to try one of the best games of the year. After a great success in other platforms, it is time to play it in our PCs. Still, it needs a really high-specifications device in order to work properly.
