I've been a fan of monster-hunting games since the PSP era and Dauntless is a good addition to the genre. Despite having similarities to other games in the genre like Monster Hunter, Dauntless still has something to bring to the table. The action is fast paced and the islands where you hunt aren't that huge so you don't have to spend a lot of time tracking the behemoths. The graphics are easy on the eyes, its "cartoony" look is reminiscent of games like Fortnite. The monster design are also awe-inspiring and you can tell the designers really took their time. Another good thing about this game is that it's FREE, and it's in no way pay-to-win. Most of the micro-transactions are just in the form of cosmetics like equipment dyes and skins. Despite all these good points, the game also has it flaws. The monsters aren't really balanced, Terra-type behemoths are easier to kill compared to Shock-type and the average kill-time for each boss is too long and repetitive at times. Also, It suffers from a lot of bugs like disappearing quests and parties after a hunt and random server disconnections which gets annoying after a while. There's certainly a room for improvement and I am excited for what the developers have in store for this game's future.
