Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Review

The Tourist Trap

HIGH  The moment-to-moment exhilaration of fighting a gigantic monster can still feel amazing.

LOW Poor training options, hunts are structurally repetitive, area transitions disrupt fights.

WTF The localization’s fourth-wall-bending goofiness is frequently obnoxious, complete with a literal “git gud” at one point.


Monster Hunter World (PC) Review

Apex Predator

HIGH The first time a monster picks another one up and drops it from midair.

LOW Server connectivity was not great in the early days of release.

WTF A lot of buildup to a pretty poor “final” boss battle


Hunting Simulator Review

The Ultimate Predator

HIGH Finally tracking down a black bear on a moonless night.

LOW Being forced to hunt rabbits – again – to unlock the next level.

WTF How am I supposed to tell which of these sheep is legendarily formidable? They’re just sheep!
