I came from MHGU background and I can say that this game also packs a punch and here are my thoughts.

BGM: Music from this game will never disappoint and will make the hunts a lot more fun and it also gives adrenaline boost while playing. I really like the Japanese theme/concept behind this game

Gameplay: The addition of the wirebugs and its skills are very handy and refreshing for this new MH title. Also, this game is a good starter for those who haven't played any Monster Hunter games before as the difficulty is toned down, a lot of tutorials is present, monster guides is available in-game, weapons are really fun to use. For this game I can say that the learning curve is not too steep.

Story: The game's story is short but it is okay for me since its an MH game, it's better to have a story in this game than to have none at all. Lol I'm not looking at you MHFU

Overall, I really love this game EZ 200+ hours, the only thing that hinders me to give it a 10 is the lack of monsters, I still want more. The kind of roster that we have back in GU.

Fans who love Monster Hunter exclusively for the hunts will likely welcome the raised emphasis on taking on major monsters as quickly as possible. However, Rise is missing some of the worldbuilding of Monster Hunter: World, which will make it feel a bit emptier for players who prefer to stop and smell the roses.

Monster Hunter Rise is exceptional. 17 years on, and there still isn’t a gameplay experience that can deliver such tremendously heroic thrills at the same level as this. Evading increasingly crippling blows from a monster desperately fending for its life to managing to capture a monster while on the brink of your own failure, the excitement once the game clicks with you is constant and palpable.

Monster Hunter Rise is probably the most accessible and enjoyable entry of the long-running franchise to date. Streamlined, focused, and incredibly fun, Monster Hunter Rise is a must-have for fans and newcomers alike. One of the best action games on the Switch and easily one of its best console exclusives, it's everything a video game should be.
