  • Well worth the buy!

    I saw this game being played at e3 this year, and tried the demo. It’s a lot of fun so far despite I haven’t gotten that far into the game. There’s some rock, paper, scissors mechanics in terms of strategy, but it was easy to catch on, and definitely plenty to explore and do in between main story quests.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • I like, but don't love, Stories
    Reviewed by Alison - July 24, 2021

    I really enjoyed MHStories on the DS, and am not disappointed by the new Switch iteration. It's great fun having creatures from the MH universe as your teammates/pets, and the turn-based fighting mechanic is a nice change from the usual hack 'n' slash. Graphics are gorgeous, if a little repetitive. I haven't finished the main story arc, but look forward to doing so while satisfying my urge to collect them all (*cough*). My only complaints this time around: lag/framerate slowdown on the Switch is noticeable, though not gamebreaking. The combat system has a few added features, which seem exciting at first, but soon somehow feel a bit redundant. New "rider's notes" concerning gene combination and egg-hunting sort of suck the fun out of discovery, memory-building and learning by trial and error, and warnings in the field feel a bit too hand-holdy, too: you're told beforehand if a new monster will be too much for you, for instance. Remember prematurely taking on that snoozing pink rathian in Stories 1 and dying horribly? Learning experiences = FUN. Also, in this sequel, you nearly always have a story-related offsider and their pet with you to help you take down monsters, which rather takes the edge off what would otherwise be hard-won solo victories to feel proud of. I think this game is intended for younger folk, though even they might prefer the steeper learning curve and subsequent feelings of mastery and achievement that earlier Monster Hunter games (Stories included) are known for. I still think this is a game worth having and playing, if you don't mind things being made a little too easy for you.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
