Our Daniele, who tried Monster Hunter Rise on Nintendo Switch, wrote the following in his review for techgameworld.com:
“Monster Hunter Rise is a worthy chapter of the saga if not one of the most innovative. The new elements are many and all very spot on that manage to refresh a classic gameplay but always challenging and addictive. The new settings and monsters, new and old, manage to give life to a world that is always fascinating and never the same. The story in Single Player finally seems to blossom giving us an interesting plot and where she is not enough, we think about a multiplayer sector that will allow us to face the most difficult monsters in the company of our friends “.
