The newest instalment in the popular action RPG series from Capcom is making its way to the west this summer. The new Style system and Hunter Arts create the most customisable Monster Hunter experience yet, while players will now have the option to play as a Felyne for the first time ever. The game will feature a special collaboration armour set based on Marth from the Fire Emblem series, while anyone who plays Monster Hunter Generations on a Nintendo 3DS system with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate save data will unlock bonus content in the new game.
Monster Hunter is a unique series, there's just not anything like it. There have been some trying to do something similar, but nothing just comes close to MH in monsters or combat. Generations is continuing with 3DS releases that started with 3U, and while it's a bit unfortunate not to have these on consoles or PC, MH still delivers a fantastic experience on the go. You choose your weapon from variety of options, there are fast ones, long range, heavy, medium, there's something for every playstyle. My personal favorite is the long sword, it gives nice amount of damage while not being slow like the great sword, I hate the slow weapons, and long sword has a really cool special attack. Dual blades are also fun. They're really fast and you can get multiple hits in at a time. Then you pick a mission from whatever you want to do. There are the standard monster hunting types where you just need to kill a big monster. Some require you to trap a monster which is a lot trickier, as you need to watch them closely for signs of weakening, but you can't kill them but also you need to get them as low as possible so you guarantee a trapping. This is one of the most rewarding things to do in MH in my opinion. Then there are killing some enemies, egg carrying missions with big monsters handing around, or gather some materials and so on. Monsters range from anything between little bird wyverns to huge dragons. Dragons are definitely the most fearsome and satisfying enemies here, the designs are cool and they're absolutely savage. You need to go into them well prepared with a good weapon, good armor and a lot of healing and other stuff to keep yourself at top condition. One added thing in Generations are the arts and different hunting styles. One mode is the normal MH fighting style, and you can equip couple arts that fill up when you attack enemies. Those are powerful attacks that, depending on your weapon, do something powerful like with long sword one art gives you endless spirit combo attacks for a while. One mode then is all about mounting enemies and jumping which is my favorite. One relies on parrying and dodging at perfect moments which is the hardest to master, but is very rewarding. Personally I haven't had any luck with this, I'm not that good. Last one focuses on the arts and lets you charge them a lot faster, though the moves you have are a bit limited as a result. MH Generations is just extremely satisfying game that rewards exploration and skill. There's not a lot of help coming here, you either kill the monster or it kills you. It doesn't really add that much compared to already excellent MH3U and 4U, but it doesn't really need to. Hunting styles mix it up nicely, and it's still Monster Hunter with new content that's extremely well made. Can't really go wrong with this if you like the series.
Monster Hunter is pretty old series and it is amazing how consistent in quality it is. You don't have to read reviews, previews or whatever because you already know as soon as you hear the title that it will be awesome. This game doesn't disappoint. There is everything fans love about this series, from grinding for equipment, ranks, to hunting with friends for atrocities that roam this land. It is much bigger than 4 on the content side of things, but it comes with a price of lack of story, which is not that bad, really, because this is a game that you play mainly for gameplay. The balance is nice and there is nothing to complain about. If you're new to the series, pick it up and don't worry about not playing previous games, because you don't lose much. Without playing previous games you gain more time to play this one, and time and real life are worst enemies for this game.
Monster Hunter Generations is an RPG game where you hunt/kill monsters (you don't say, huh?), you search for items, equipment, do missions, you get material from mining/gathering and other stuff as well. I'm suprised by how good this one was, especially if you're a fan of the series you'll understand what I mean. So, for the new fans, it isn't an open world game, yet you can free roam and do anything you want at the maps you are. You can go to different places too, depending where some missions will take you to. You can search for plenty of items to make your equipment better, and weapons also, so that you can hunt greater monster throughout the game. Each mission/monster can have it's own task, it's NOT like it is repetitive and you do the same thing over and over again and gets boring. Generally there's a lot of stuff to do in this game. Your character doesn't have a Level-Up system, BUT it has Upgrade system for the equipment! The game includes the Hunter Rank, which tells you what monsters you are able to hunt down to get gear. Keep getting your Hunter Rank better (by doing some specific Quests) and then you'll be able to hunt greater monster throughout the game. Oh, there are Mission types like Huntathon, Hunting, Slaying, Repel, Gathering, and more. Normally, It's HOURS and hours of gameplay with many many stuff to do, but in the end it all depends on you by how much you like the game (or the series) and by how you play or how long you wanna. Overall, it's a well made game, with plenty of action many hours of gameplay. Really enjoyable.
