There's also a hunting and crafting system, subquests and all kinds of stuff to do. Speaking on its merits as a pet-based RPG, this game should be the new standard for all of them to follow and I sincerely hope they release a sequel. I'm going to be spreading the word about it as much as possible.
As a final parting tip - bottle caps may seem useless but do yourself a favor and save every single one that you get. There's a certain thing that involves them partway through the story and you'll be glad you saved them!
It is similar to Pokemon but, I don't know how to explain, it feels less "weird" in the art style of your monster companions. These are more like dragons and other more mature fantasy creatures than a floating chandelier or an oozing pile of garbage, for example, that are in Pokemon. It's those strange Pokemon design choices that continue to keep me away from playing Pokemon. MHS has more of a fantasy dragon monster design.
The game story is solid if nothing particularly innovative. Combat is fun and challenging, especially pulling off dual attacks or your "Ride On" ability to finish off a particularly challenging monster. The game features some 200 monsters you can find and collect all with different abilities, traits, and talents. There is resource collecting for crafting, numerous side quests, etc. You can unlock PvP from a side quest to battle locally or online. I like the PvP system in this game over Pokemon.
The game really does feel like a "gateway" into the Monster Hunter series if you want to go there, it's made me more curious to want to try out a "core" MH game. From watching reviews and gameplay of core Monster Hunter, they have carried over many of the mechanics and even the monsters to MHS except this one is turn based while regular MH is not.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and look forward to many hours playing this game. If anyone already has a DS console, download the free demo, I think you'll be glad you did.
