GoNintendo Review - Monster Hunter Stories

I'm a late bloomer when it comes to the Monster Hunter world. The very first game I tried in the entire series was Monster Hunter Tri, and I had no idea what was going on. I really gave it a good shot, but it was absolutely overwhelming. I can't tell you how dumb I felt when playing that game. Here I was, someone who had played thousands of games, yet playing Monster Hunter Tri made me feel like I had never played, or even seen a video game before. Talk about an tough first impression!

Thankfully, I soon learned that the Monster Hunter games were notoriously difficult to get into. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't really get into Monster Hunter until Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. When that game rolled around, I was determined to set things right. I also had a friend who was ready to play alongside me. They didn't have any idea how to play Monster Hunter either, but now we had each other work off of. It took a lot of time, and an even greater amount of patience, but we eventually figured out the crazy world of Monster Hunter. From that moment on, I've been quite the fan of the franchise.

Now here we are with the latest installment in the Monster Hunter series, but things are decidedly different this time. Monster Hunter Stories is a spin-off, and while it's not the first spin-off out there, it's one which aims to cram all things Monster Hunter into a more story-driven experience. Does Monster Hunter Stories stand a chance with those who haven't been able to figure out previous Monster Hunter games? Should those who aren't fans of Monster Hunter even bother? All this depends on how you feel about Monster Hunter Stories' main mechanic.
