I may have my nits to pick with Monster Hunter Stories, but the game is certainly quite a good JRPG all-around. It ranks fairly high even among the impressive JRPG library of the Nintendo 3DS, so in the increasingly dry traditional JRPG landscape that is today’s mobile gaming market, it’s a real blessing. It’s not as good as a mainline Pokemon release, nor will it keep you playing as long as a mainline Monster Hunter game, but I suspect fans of either looking for something to play on their phones or tablets won’t be unhappy with Monster Hunter Stories.
For what it does struggle with, this is still one of the finest experiences you'll find on the current market with hours upon hours or adventuring to be had. It might get a bit repetitive, sure, but its story and witty characters really make that premium price worth paying.
Monster Hunter Stories simplifies the series a lot, but it doesn't actually make it any more accessible.
