Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate brings the majority of the series' monsters into one package for a lengthy and exciting hunting extravaganza. While it feels dated in some ways post-Monster Hunter: World, it's a great farewell tour for the old style of the franchise. If you can stomach the pacing problems and obtuse menu systems, it's a worthwhile and challenging trek through the history of Monster Hunter.

A grab bag of everything that made the purely portable iterations shine, Ultimate Generations is arcane but absolutely brilliant.

Still one of the best entries in the series, but the comparisons to Monster Hunter: World are not kind – especially as this is essentially just a 3DS port.

Hunting dangerous quarry is a thrill thanks to a preparation-focused loop and fun crafting, though the lack of substantial additional content makes the value of a return trip questionable

While it comes in the form of a no-frills port, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate exists as the most thorough exploration of Monster Hunter to date. If you can get over its 3DS-era visuals, you're in for a seemingly endless experience you can easily devote a lifetime to—and one worth devoting a lifetime to. Whether you're new to the series, someone who started with Monster Hunter World, or just a fan of the previous 3DS games, you're bound to get addicted once MHGU gets its hooks into you. Just don't be afraid to ask for help.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate ties up the entirety of the series' history prior to World in spectacular style, and emphasises why the game has worked so well as a handheld title for all these years. While it leans heavily on the past heritage of the series, here's hoping that there's a place for further similar titles in Monster Hunter's future.

Monster Hunter arrives on Nintendo Switch with an installment practically unsurpassed. Perhaps we miss more changes or a more remarkable graphic face washing, but it's undeniable that hunting, in the old fashioned way, is better than ever.

All in all, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate brings some neat new features and monsters to the table, but at the same time it doesn't do anything to truly alter the way you experience the Monster Hunter Franchise.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is not so easy to pick for new players, but extremely rewarding once you get into it. Technically speaking, its style feels too old for the new generation console: the Nintendo side of the Capcom saga needs, more than ever, a new, fresh beginning.

As usual, MHG Ultimate is more than a remastered Monster Hunter Generations. It is a production that, although it is too much of Nintendo 3DS, is ideal for fans. Compared with MH World, you feel a step behind. But, on the other hand, many fans will appreciate and understand this return as an increase in the hours of fun and hard challenge, with a roster of extras and attractive additions.

Veterans may jump at the chance to lap this up all over again, but new players hot off the back of World may struggle to find their feet.

The Monster Hunter franchise debut on the Switch is nothing short of phenomenal.  Significant visual upgrades made possible by the more powerful console accompanied by a slew of gameplay additions make this a must-own for Monster Hunter fans.

I know I would love Monster Hunter Generations far more than I do if I never played Monster Hunter World. Generations is clunkier, slower, and lacks the size and polish of World. If you really want some Monster Hunter action on the Switch, then you can't go wrong with Generations. New fans coming in hot of the heels of World, be prepared for a drastic quality difference.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate earns the "Ultimate" in its moniker with visual and gameplay improvements as well as a wealth of additional content compared to its original counterpart on the 3DS.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the dangerous world of hunting with a mountains of content and the ability to play not only at home but also on the road. If you've already finished with Monster Hunter World and want more, then Generations Ultimate will be a great purchase.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate for some player might be the right game at the wrong time. Rich in content but arrived in Europe after the great revamp of Monster Hunter World, the game brutally comes back to origins, offering in return a truly exemplary longevity.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is a game that is sure to please hardcore Monster Hunter fans, and will likely bring many new fans into the hardcore fold now that they have gotten a taste via Monster Hunter: World. While the graphics are strictly handheld-level, in the heat of battle you simply will not care. Players should be ready to plumb the depths of much more complicated crafting and material gathering systems, but the combat is very recognizable to fans old and new. This is one of the biggest and best games on Switch, and regardless of how long it takes to ramp up and get going, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate should not be missed.
