Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate pushes you to be better. As a newcomer, I’ve learned so much in such a short period of time that the recommended breaks between sessions became mandatory to retain all the new information. The staggering amount of content included is worth the price of admission alone. And yeah, combat can feel janky at times, and there aren’t many visual enhancements from the 3DS version, but there’s a distinct charm and life to Generations that still shines through, compelling even the least competitive of gamers to strive for greatness.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate may lack the smoothness and accessibility that made Monster Hunter: World such a smash hit, but it more than makes up for it by being a sort of ‘greatest hits’ collection of the high points of the series, giving you hundreds of hours of content to play through.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is simply one of the best entries the series has to offer. It opens up a slew of content without feeling overwhelming and gameplay is more varied than ever with tons to do every single step of the way. While it may not be as immediately welcoming to newcomers as Monster Hunter: World, it has that classic feel that makes diving in and learning everything all the more satisfying.
