Authentic hunting action carefully adapted to mobile:
Discover a variety of monsters depending on the habitat around you – Forest, Desert or Swamp – and engage in thrilling hunts solo, or band together with fellow hunters to take on these large monsters. The simplified tap-based controls and high-fidelity graphics enable you to engage in enjoyable hunting action wherever you go.

Mark monsters even with your phone in the pocket:
With Adventure Sync, you can use a Paintball to track monsters while you explore your town and bring the hunt to your doorstep afterwards. As you explore, your Palico can mark passing monsters with Palico Paintballs, even while you aren’t actively playing, allowing you to return to them later, ensuring that the action never stops.

Excellent, with room for improvement.

I am a big fan of the Monster Hunter series and when I saw this game finally released I downloaded it immediately. The very start of the game is a little bumpy but once you get past that it’s pretty fun. Unlike other Niantic games, monsters and resources spawn anywhere, allowing you to play this pretty much anywhere at any time, with locations of interest having extra resource geodes. The fights are short and fun, yet demanding enough on your part to keep you glued on the screen. Overall the core gameplay is pretty fun, but there are some problems.

First, spawn rates are kinda slow and your circle could be larger. This wouldn’t be too big of a deal normally, but since later upgrades require rare materials, it gets a little annoying, especially if that one monster you need for your gear is behind private property. Second, the pricing on the items seem expensive. A single paintball costs you 1$ USD worth of gems, and all it does is mark a monster so you can battle it later. Finally, if you’re going too fast, you’re pretty much entirely locked out of playing the game. I understand this is to discourage people from gaming and driving, but it is annoying.

Overall, this is a really solid game, especially considering it is brand new. I’m sure it will only improve with more updates! Hopefully Niantic doesn’t over-monetize the game into the ground. So far, this is definitely my favorite Niantic game so far and I would highly recommend it!

Interesting, fun, has future potential

A fun game for traveling, whether you are currently or not doesn’t matter, game is playable anywhere and doesn’t set much restrictions to when or where other than the somewhat annoying speed limit that disables gameplay, safety is first but still, clicking on an empty space where there was once material loot or an enemy is disorientating. Combat is smooth and intuitive, there are some minor visual hang ups when fighting certain star enemies though such as when you get hit by a rolling attack and your character rolls along with it but is pretty much squashed underneath or is way farther away from the enemy sometimes. I would like if I could interrupt my attacks easier though other than bashing the enemy, but that’s a skill issue. Has plenty features to make the game entertaining, there are probably battle features or skills I haven’t encountered yet. The main game is entertaining and gets you hooked, you spend more time than you think playing it. Progression wise, it is pretty stable and introduces content and skills at a good pace. Hopefully there will be more to come
