I finally got my hands on the new Monster Hunter game. I’ve played about three hours so far and here are my first impressions on it.
I’ve never been a Monster Hunter fan. I’ve played parts 3, and 4 and just never got into the series. I’ll admit that I never put much time into them and this is my first real attempt to learn the mechanics, and gameplay of the series.
Generations is a fun game. I enjoyed testing out each weapon and hunting down some monsters for their hides so I could craft myself some better gear to wear, but I don’t really see an improvement over Monster Hunter 4. Maybe it’s the 3DS’s fault because there’s only so much you can do with it or maybe Capcom knows that hardcore Monster Hunter fans don’t care and will buy it anyway.
So far I’ve hunted down some Jaggies, I think that’s the name so don’t kill me in the comments if I’m wrong :), got chased by a big ass monster, gathered a bunch of ingredients, and made my first dung bomb. Fighting the big ass monsters is really cool, but I haven’t beat one yet. They run away before I can finish them off and I’m not brave enough to pursue them yet. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m still a noob at the game, but I’m determined to learn so I know I’ll eventually get better.
I also really like the gameplay. It has a Dark Souls feel to it. I have to manage my stamina in battle while choosing when to attack or defend. It’s really neat and I really want to learn it because I suck right now.
I have nothing, but positive things to say about Generations right now. I’m really enjoying it and I really want to try out the multiplayer. I’ve been playing alone this entire time and I want to see how some teamwork works in this game.
Have you played Monster Hunter Generations? What do you think of it?
