What experts liked
Enumerating Monster Hunter: World’s features doesn’t tell you much about why it’s so easy to love. It is at once silly and stylish, comedic without being self-conscious about it.
- Kotaku

Engaging narrative built around a good single-player campaign.
- GameSpot

Fully configurable keyboard and mouse controls are as cozy as any controller, and extensive graphics options will get it running just fine on older rigs with enough tweaking.

Monster Hunter: World shrewdly allows its fabulous beasts to take center stage, never letting story or cookie-cutter quest givers interfere with the promise of the game’s crux. Each monster, from the moment you first spot it across a clearing to the point you’ve turned its parts into spectacular armor, is distinct thanks to unique visual designs and many special ways each beast can kill you.

It is truly epic battles.
- Digital Trends
More accessible and approachable than any Monster Hunter yet.
- Games Radar

Each monster has vulnerable parts, which can break if you hit them hard enough, and so combat becomes a dance of dodging and hitting them where it hurts when the opportunity arises.

Visuals are underwhelming.
- Digital Trends
Hunting for rare parts can get repetitive/grindy.
- Games Radar

It's a real shame that Capcom still hasn't found an ideal way to welcome new players.
