Just as Fun and Addicting as Pokémon Go!

If you’ve been following Niantic for any amount of time, you’ll know what to expect. Just like with “Pokémon Go!,” they pack in an addictive gameplay loop revolving around quick interactions. Now if you are a fan of the main series Monster Hunter games, this previous statement may worry you. The point in the main series games is to prep for extensive, intense hunts against really tough monsters. I too was worried.
But having played this game for about 3 days now, I can see where this spin on the franchise can have its own seat in the series. The battles last less than 75sec, as that is the allotted goal to complete the hunt. It’s fun to conquer new monsters, and upgrade weapons and armor just like in other games.
I think where the “fun” really begins is when meeting with other players to take on these foes. That’s where the magic of Niantic shines the brightest.
Accepting that this is not a main installment, and just another creative avenue for Capcom to explore and expand its Monster Hunter influence to more potential fans is key. There certainly is still a lot of work to be done to flesh out the game, but I can see the potential; and I am fully confident in Niantic’s ability to build upon their games over time. Even to this day, I fire up Pokémon Go to take a look at what’s changed in the areas near me. I know this Monster Hunter game will be another one I come back to time and time again for a casual play for years to come.

Great Callback to Mainline Series

MH:Now is an awesome interpretation of the mainline games, cutting a few corners to make it work as a mobile game.

The inclusion of multiple weapons is a must, but Niantic should’ve included all 14 weapons from the start, or at least at HR15 like they did. Only having 6 to choose from is a bit of a disappointment. The weapons we do get include many of the mechanics that the regular series does, requiring directional swipes of your thumb to execute. However, not all weapons feel as robust. The Light Bowgun, without a manual reload or even a melee attack, feels like an after thought. For the weapons that do have these mechanics held over from the mainline games, the lack of a Training Dummy means you can’t practice or learn them. This feels like another oversight. The last mention is the lack of an online party. I’m not sure the requirements behind this, but many of my friends are states and countries away. It would be nice to hunt with them and vice versa, as this would allow us to benefit from each other. As it stands now, the friends list looks more like competition between friends rather than co-op.

Aside from these few complaints, I was delighted with how much they did add to the game. With enough marketing, it might even pull in a bunch of new players. I hope it does, so that when the new title releases after MH:Rise, more people will be familiar with it.
