Monster Hunter: World is a third-person action game about dominating the food chain and looking good doing it. It's renowned for its endgame grind, where you go on ever more complex and challenging hunts across diverse, tangled open worlds in search of rare items needed to craft an armor set that’ll no doubt crown you the min-max champion of the world.

A gorgeous game with lush, living ecologies and diverse monsters

Capcom’s also done stellar work crafting Monster Hunter’s landscape. Every new world you visit is completely different from the last, but each full of rich detail and plenty to discover.

The enhanced versions allow you to prioritize either resolution for 4K displays or framerate for super-smooth combat, but even without these enhancements you can see the slaver falling from the jaws of an exhausted Rathian, and admire the motes of dust sparkling in sunlight in the Ancient Forest.

Comprehensive multiplayer integration

Playing Monster Hunter World in co-op is the ideal way to experience the game. It allows for more variety in battle strategies, and makes it so less-skilled players can progress through the game easier.
- Game Rant
Capcom has done a pretty good job of keeping players coming back by pumping out free downloadable content updates with new monsters roughly every month. The latest update is probably the biggest yet, an ambitious Final Fantasy crossover in which you take on the iconic Behemoth.

Grappling is new to the series. World lets you ascend walls, or swing from tree branches to move around quickly. You can also use your grapple to pull yourself back onto a monster if it throws you off during a mount

What experts didn't like
As you progress further into high rank missions, small mistakes are met with massive punishments, and the study and preparation for a single hunt might require a whole new armor set and weapon. It can be frustrating and slow, especially after the breezy hunts of the story campaign.

Hunting for rare parts can get repetitive/grindy

The only warning I have about Monster Hunter World’s combat, is to approach its mouse and keyboard controls with care. Capcom’s done a great job making the mouse and keyboard control system completely customisable, but Monster Hunter World is still a game that’s clearly been designed with controllers in mind.

Some online-play features are fiddly and need improving
- IGN Southeast Asia
The new verticality of levels occasionally leads to frustrating AI pathing glitches
- GameSpot
Some players that are new to the franchise may become frustrated when they find themselves fighting a particular creature for nearly 30 minutes without any health bar to whittle down, but the monsters in the game don’t need health bars.
- Game Rant
Most of the configuration options you’d expect are present, but there are key PC-specific features missing, like ultrawide support. The game also doesn’t feel very well-optimized for all but the highest-end of hardware.
