Hier ein richtig gutes Review und das vom 9.12.18, also relativ frisch:
It's a mixed experience for me. I've played most of the 3ds titles and one PS2 title. I have a combined 400 hours of gameplay, so it's safe to say that i'm sort of a fan. MHW on the other hand is a good game, probably the best game in the series. There are a lot of things i like in it, but there are a lot of things i outwardly hate in it. So First, the good.
It's more streamlined, more fair to new players and it doesn't get tedious fast. Tracking a monster is easier than ever, with tracks and tracker flies. The maps are one big area with seamless transitions between segments, meaning no loading screens. Bigger item pouch, divided into two types of crafting materials, meaning more room for items and less grinding. You always have a map and items are marked on it until you are under attack. No more pickaxes, nets and whetstones needed, meaning more space saved. The graphics are great, albeit demanding at times. I use the 360 controller and so far it has been superb. The monsters however familiar, can be surprisingly challenging even to returning players. Also you can turn off most helpful options for a more hardcore experience. All in all a good game as a whole. Not great, but OK.
The Bad, are mostly issues that plague AAA games of late.
Still, it's sort of baffling to me how a company like Capcom can allow itself to skim on servers and server quality leaving millions of paying customers out in the dirt coping with constant server issues.
Camera can be annoying as it doesn't always stay locked on target, and when it does it's mostly at a weird angle where you can't see how the monster is...
Also spannend finde ich daran eigentlich gar nichts. Eher einschläfernd.
Die Kämpfe fand ich allerdings echt sehr spannend. Als jemand, der nicht viel mit Spielen aus Japan anfangen kann, war das eine äußerst willkommene Abwechslung.
