Monster Hunt

The series of action games Monster Hunter started in 2004. Since that time, it has acquired five parts, let alone plenty of spin-offs and additions. The story will even be filmed: Capcom announced it four years ago. Milla Jovovich and other Hollywood stars will take part in the film adaptation. But the film production was postponed indefinitely because of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, what stops the film crew, won't stop the game development team. Capcom didn't leave the fan base without a gift. And the series has many fans. Monster Hunter is one of the most popular games in Japan. Spoiler: we will see it in this article. The project was one of the most profitable brainchildren of the developers. That's why they issued the new part of the story, Monster Hunter Rise, in 2021. And on January 12, it was released on a PC.

A player tries the role of a hunter and researcher. They study a vast world, swarming with monsters and teeming with various weapons. The locations change in each part of the series, and Rise is no exception. It has known creatures and opponents that players haven't studied before. To defeat the enemy, one needs to learn their habits and behavior. A gamer receives an award for each hunting trophy. And at the top of the monster hierarchy is the fanged wyvern Magnamalo. It is the most valuable prize.

According to the genre's classics, the player can make up his unique style of weapon. There are fourteen weapons to choose from. A variety of arsenal allows users to meet the animal in close combat or ambush it. Swords, paired blades, spears, and bows are not the full list. And after every win, a player earns a new material for weapon and armor.

One can play both alone and in a team. In the Hall of Hunters, tasks for teams are always displayed. Once a team of four is assembled, the user is sent on a unique mission. It is always easier to defeat large bosses in a team. The only problem is sharing the reward.

We conclude the synopsis with a nice little detail: players can tame a cute little companion. This is a wirebug, an insect weaving a super-strong thread. Thanks to it, the hero will jump over chasms and climb walls. This is similar to the web of Spider-Man but in the world of Monster Hunter. The companions won't disappoint you. A user can curb huge monsters or ride around the world on a palamute.

One of the main delights of the Rise is the Rampage mode. In this mode, players will have to confront innumerable hordes of monsters. These are the most large-scale battles in the series. The game is at least interesting — so interesting that it instantly entered most of the charts.

The top online and inevitable bugs

Monster Hunter Rise made it to the top ten games on Steam within the first couple of hours after the release. The game's online peak was over ninety-thousand on the day of release. By January 14, this number reached almost one hundred and ten thousand players. The game beat Rust, New World, and even Resident Evil Village.

The Japanese continue to show their infinite love for the series. Monster Hunter Rise took first place among the most downloaded games on the Nintendo Switch. It has supplanted Among Us, one of the most viral games of recent years.

However, Rise didn't manage to beat its predecessor, Monster Hunter World. The online peak of the fourth part was over two hundred and forty thousand on the release day. After that, almost a hundred thousand more people joined the hunt.

And though the game showed excellent results, it was not without a fly in the ointment. The users had a complaint about the project. The main ones are graphics. The developers promised to pay attention to the optimization of Rise. But as a result, the visuals of the PC version are almost the same as those of the Nintendo release. The users have already recorded a video that compares two variants. The changes are insignificant.

At the same time, the game has not avoided bugs and other problems. But this is common, and such difficulties will not be difficult to fix unless Capcom gives it up as hopeless. Overall, the public was satisfied with the game.
