Secondly, try out every weapon for a few hunts. Hunt a big monster at least three times with each weapon, and get a feel for which one you might enjoy more. The music is appropriate to say the least; it usually makes the hunting of a large monster exciting and like you're having a battle with a beast that would otherwise be unconquerable. But the music gets your adrenaline pumping! The weapons are unorthodox, but make the game super exciting due to their enormous size in tandem with the music, anyone looking for a thrill would love this game. The aesthetics are overall very nice and tropical usually, but sometimes can get a little boring. You wouldn't be looking at the scenery for long though, when a giant dragon comes down and you are forced to battle with this incredible force of nature.
Finally, constructing new weapons and armor from materials gathered from these behemoths is a fun experience, though it can get a little bit tedious. Overall, this game has a special place in my heart and I strongly urge anyone to pick up this game at least once.
But the biggest problem is how much time it takes to wear down a foe, and how sloggy the controls feel. I love games like dark souls, so slower,more meticulous combat is right up my alley,but monster hunter just feels too unresponsive. The lack of a real lock on function is really really outdated, having to tap the screen every time is a pain.
This game also requires hours of grinding items. The armor/weapons are very cool, but they take so long to get that the novelty wears off really fast.
Overall, if you liked monster hunter before, then you'd like this. But if you expect a modern-feeling game or a fast paced adventure, steer clear.
