It’s that time again for the hunting of beasts huge and small, from those of fantastical size to those smaller than a fly. Monster Hunter Generations is the next game in the series, following on from Monster Hunter 4 (which we reviewed here). Since there’s no storyline that runs through the game, there’s no need to worry about missing anything from before, so let’s go hunt something ugly!
Monster Hunter is one of those series that has been around for about…oh, three hundred million years (Ed: 11 years) and has spawned over a thousand sequels (Ed: Once again, closer to 10. Your concept of scale—it worries me), with the first game being available on the PlayStation 2 in 2004. At current, the series has over 30 million in sales (Ed: Actually, this one is correct. For once) and I guess you can say it’s one extraordinarily popular video game series. I grab my sword, my bow, and MY AXE and wander around in search of dangerous prey to review this game.
