Monster Hunter Stories is an excellent adventure that channels the colourful world of Capcom’s storied series into a joyous JRPG. It suffers from performance issues on non-New 3DS hardware, but it’s still full of personality, beautifully presented and fun to play, with combat that’s easy to grasp but engaging throughout. Longtime MonHun fans will appreciate Stories as a thoughtfully-made spin-off, but the gameplay template and tone are so different that you don’t need to be familiar with — or even enjoy! — mainline Monster Hunter to have a great time here. Regardless of whether you’ve been hunting Hornetaurs since the beginning or couldn’t tell a Felyne from a Fatalis, Stories is yet another charming 3DS RPG that’s well worth your time.

I absolutely thoroughly enjoyed my more than 50 hours with Monster Hunter Stories so far. It effectively eliminates the oh-so-common boring RPG grind, implements a novel turn-based battle system, and sincerely surprises me with seemingly limitless customizability. Though wrapped in a pleasant, sugary coating, Monster Hunter Stories did all of this while retaining the spirit of the Monster Hunter world with some small yet enjoyable nods to fans. I can’t wait to dive back into the endgame and hatch myself a Kirin.

Monster Hunter Stories is a great game that does everything right. It is very accessible and quite easy to play, and is packed with loads of content that will keep players busy for ages. But I do think that the game will struggle to find its audience. Monster Hunter Stories is the game for those who wanted to enjoy Monster Hunter but, for whatever reason, couldn’t. If that sounds like you, grab an egg and start your journey.

At first, I wasn't completely sold on MHStories, but the longer I played the more that the game's heart shone through. The story might not have much depth, but what the game might lack in narrative it more than makes up for with its charm.
Game Rant (Sep 19, 2017)
Monster Hunter Stories is an enjoyable 40+ hour romp that adds depth and personality to world that often lacks narrative. Collecting monsters, becoming immersed in in-game events, and taking in the rather beautiful world that Capcom has created are all pivotal to enjoying this experience, while the tedium associated with battles can trigger a desire for multiple breaks during extended sessions. Still, Stories shines in a way that other Monster Hunter games don’t, making a name for itself while honoring what came before it.

Monster Hunter Stories capture l’essence de la saga originale et transforme le tout en un RPG à destination d’un large public. Si Capcom vise bien entendu les plus jeunes avec ce spin-off placé sous le signe de l’accessible, l’éditeur japonais n’en oublie pas non plus les fans de la série en livrant ici un RPG fidèle à l’univers du jeu, doté de mécaniques simples mais solides. Dans un monde charmant rempli de personnages haut en couleur, les aventures de notre Rider chevaucheur de monstres offrent une bonne manière de vous familiariser avec l’univers de Monster Hunter avant une éventuelle nouvelle aventure sur le prochain Monster Hunter World.

Der Wechsel vom Monsterjäger zum Monsterzähmer mit Pokémon-ähnlichem Gefolge ist für Serienveteranen ebenso ungewöhnlich wie die Umstellung von monumentalen Echtzeit-Kämpfen auf rundentaktische Blitzgefechte. Trotz anfänglicher Skepsis funktioniert Monster Hunter aber auch einigermaßen als Anime-Rollenspiel. Hintergründe und Dialoge haben allerdings nach wie vor eher Alibi-Charakter, so dass von einer guten Story nichts zu sehen ist. Die Jäger- und Sammlerinstinkte werden zwar geweckt, aber es gibt nur ein sehr simpel gestricktes Kampfsystem mit lediglich vier Waffengattungen. Immerhin präsentiert sich die Spielwelt deutlich offener und die von den Fähigkeiten seiner schuppigen Begleiter abhängige Erkundung erweist sich als vielseitig. Der Austausch der kooperativen Pirsch für bis zu vier Jäger durch einen schnöden Duellmodus ist für Fans natürlich unverzeihlich.
