- Easier to play. I have the 3DS with the C-stick and gameplay was still clunky. Playing Generations with the pro-controller is so much smoother.
- The updated visuals are a welcomed update.
- Save data transfer from the 3DS to the Switch is seamless.
I've played most of the games in the series and can tell you that Generations has the most content and challenge of all the games in the series.
If you're coming from Monster Hunter World, please note that this game is not forgiving. World is a casual game. Be prepared. The Souls games have nothing on the Monster Hunter legacy games.
Many people that began the series with World are concerned about the 'quality of life' gameplay differences. They are concerned about the map loading screens between different areas in a map. I can tell you that the loading time is around 2-3 seconds at the most. Many of you see this as a problem. It's not. This game is unforgiving. Changing between sections of a map while fighting a monsters to heal and sharpen is strategic.
Crafting is much much more involved and you have much more freedom.
Lets not forget about the Palicos! You can raise an army of them and play as them as well.
Although this entry may be a harder time to break into then others, it still is a great place to start for newer hunters as it is a celebration of all the previous monster hunter games across the series. Among all else, it is another stellar action RPG game for new and old hunters alike.
Heard this game has a "monster" load of content & seeing how this is the 1st MH game for the Switch despite being a 3ds port with more content added to it followed by a graphical update.
I just had to dig right in for it knowing that it's a more traditional classic MH game compared to World.
I just want to hunt some monsters on my switch & MHGU obviously does it for me don't care if it looks like a PS2 game in Full HD or HD in general but the gameplay, mechanics, & hours of content for grinding is what made me purchase this game for $51.95 (prime discount)
Now who's ready to hunt?
PS. Sucks that the PAL version got the inside artwork while NA didn't. Doesn't make sense but whatever Capcom thanks for the game.
Tons of monsters.
Tons of unique weapons and armor.
Tons of quests.
Great variety of maps.
Play as a Palico.
Hunting styles and arts (specific to Generations). Can drastically change how you approach each to the 14 weapon types.
Transmog (Maintain maximum fashion with the stats and skills of your best armor).
Mercifully minimal story.
Camera controls with a real analogue stick and not a goofy "C-Stick" nub.
The art style looks great, if not photo-realistic, with significantly improved textures and native 1080p in docked mode, but the choice to lock the frame-rate at 30 is one of the biggest drawbacks for me, coming from World (which runs unlocked on PC). For a port of a 3DS game, I find it hard to believe that better performance wasn't feasible.
Despite not really being a Monster Hunter veteran, I find that I enjoy this much less forgiving, but ultimately more rewarding form of the series core gameplay and I can live without most of the "Quality of life" changes that make the Westernized version easier. That said, I wish you could slide down slopes in style.
