Is Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate another smash-hit for Switch? Read the review round-up below to find out…
NintendoLife – 9/10: “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.
“Couple this with the HD visuals, easy to use multiplayer, and the ability to play the full experience on the go, and you’ve got a game that will easily appeal to both veterans and newcomers alike.
“It may not necessarily represent the future of the series, but Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is an utterly fantastic experience in its own right and a worthy follow up to the 3DS original, and one that no Switch owner will want to be without.”
Trusted Reviews – 3.5/5: “If you want to get into MHGU then you’ll need some external help, but the addition of this title on Switch makes it perfect to take on the go. It complements the preparation and hunt loop upon which the game relies, with minimal performance hitches or issues.
“Just be aware that it isn’t the easiest game to get into, and its obtuseness can hamper your enjoyment, especially early on. Stick with it, and you’ll be rewarded with near-limitless depth, and a huge roster of Monsters to take down.”
WCCFTech – 8.5/10: “Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is one of the best entries in the series and well worth playing for fans.
“Players new to Monster Hunter might find it difficult to get along with at first, but stick with it and you’ll find an engrossing, valuable hunting experience.”
USGamer – 4.5/5: “While it comes in the form of a no-frills port, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate exists as the most thorough exploration of Monster Hunter to date.
“If you can get over its 3DS-era visuals, you’re in for a seemingly endless experience you can easily devote a lifetime to—and one worth devoting a lifetime to.
“Whether you’re new to the series, someone who started with Monster Hunter World, or just a fan of the previous 3DS games, you’re bound to get addicted once MHGU gets its hooks into you. Just don’t be afraid to ask for help.”
