Probably one of the best installments to the series prior to World. Has that old school vibe to the game, the nostalgic maps/monsters, and tropes of its predecessors. I enjoy going back to GU much more than the experience I had with MH: World/Ice Borne. Can't wait for Rise!
Where to even begin. This game is phenomenal. The amount of variety is almost overwhelming while still being understandable at the same time. Every weapon, style, hunter art and monster is completely fleshed out and interesting. Personally I main Valor style Greatsword with brimstone slash, and while some may find the weapon too slow, Valor makes you much more mobile and every hit feels extremely powerful. This isn't to say that any other style of play is worse, every style serves its own purpose and a main weapon is very dependent on how you want to fight the monsters. And speaking of which, while at times the monsters may seem unfair, each one has a pattern or telegraph to their attacks, such as Rathian taking 2 steps before her backflip attack, or Brachydios biting his arms quickly before jumping into the air. Small details like this make the game challenging for beginners, but extremely fun to master. If you prefer games where the enemies drop in a few hits, or where you feel like an anime god at all times, then this isn't the game for you. But if you enjoy longer, more methodical fights with huge damage openings coming occasionally from either side, then you will probably find hundreds of hours of enjoyment from this game. My only minor gripe that keeps it from the full 10/10 is that it isn't very friendly to new players, as it is designed more for those who played the old games like 4 or Tri. If you are struggling to find how to progress through the game, I recommend IGN's list of key quests, Arrekz Gaming's weapon tutorials and the Kiranico database for finding how to get particular items or weapons. This is by far my favourite game on switch and I think it is a disservice that such a low amount of people have gotten into it.
