This March Capcom team celebrated the 17th birthday of the Monster Hunter game series. On this occasion there released Monster Hunter Rise on March 26, 2021. It is now available for the Switch platform. In this article, we discuss how it works on Switch.
Story of the game
Monster Hunter games are taking you to always hunting giant monsters in the gaming world. Its game story is simple as an old game on this series.
At the beginning of the game, you are a new hunter live in Kamura (the smallest Japanese village.). The village has always attacked by giant monsters. But a new catastrophe from ancient times has returned and they send Monster to attack and smash the village. At this time, you want to protect the village from those monsters. You can build machinery’s protect the village.
Combat in the game
The gameplay also the same compare with previous games. But it has new improved actions and movements of Character. In this game, you can teams up with four hunters and defeat monsters. It has the best action. The game main character has some abilities. The main character can tie to their armor and weapons. You crafted it collecting resources slain monsters.
The Wirebugs is a game-changing tool. It offers a level of speed and verticality. You can use it up into the air, jump up onto buildings, fling away from the monsters.
We can use it for some secondary uses.
Monster rides, other special in Wirebugs is we can use it rides on monsters back. And it allows you to temporarily force the monster to attack each other. At this time, you have a chance to use special moves to pass out the monsters.
Silkbind attacks, in this case, you have some basic weapons like the Hummer and Great sward. You can add Silkbind attacks for those basic weapons. And it makes experiences of exploring levels, finding monsters. It gets more enjoyable experiences on the game.
The Palamutes are massive dogs. You can use it for the mount. It can run across the battlefield, attack monsters, climb up to vines. You can use items while riding Palamutes. In this time, you can heal your health, sharp your weapons. This is increases your gameplay speed. But you can see Palamutes only single-payer mod. Because of the multiplayer hunts, you can take one partner with you.
In this game, Palico is your companion. It has Higher attack damage, Recovers HP for itself and Hunters also. It gathering extra materials, It can set traps to assist the Hunter, and it can set bombs. You can customize your Palamutes and Palico.
The tent-based camp in the game
The tent-based camp also improved well in the game. You can use the tent to prepare before hunts, and you can access the item box in the tent. The most important thing is before hunting you can use or skip the tent-based camp. But my suggestion is please use it and prepare well. It takes less time to prepare loadout and meal.
Rampage missions in the game
The Rampage missions are tower defense games. In this time, you have limited time to create defenses. Before a group of monsters coming to attack the village. This time you can set bombs, cannons, special elite unit based on NPCs. But the mechanics of Rampage missions are not explained well by the game.
The old games in this series multiplayer mode are ridiculous. It’s hard to enjoy with friends. But the Monster Hunter Rise has many improvements in the multiplayer mode. You can easily go and hunts with friends. You can play with friends the story missions also. But they never have repeat missions. You can enjoy the multiplayer at your own pace, and you can easily jump into hunts. You can start the multiplayer without need a long time to sit in lobbies.
Visuals of the game
The game visuals look a little bit like a Mostar Hunter World. But it still looks good in Nintendo Switch. In the switch Monsters and Palamutes look smaller during the hunts. That could be an improvement. But you can get the best experiences in the game visuals.
The Monster Hunter Rise has some special features. In the old Monster Hunter series, players cannot cancel out of moves when the animation is started. But this game hunter can quickly explore the hidden part of the map and move out of harm. It is easy to playback into a map.
The Monster Hunter Rise is good, and you can get the best experiences in the game. It has a good story mode, the best combat mod, and the fastest tools. The game single-player and multiplayer modes are more likable. Its visuals also look good. It has more improvement and special features. I think it will make more fans happy. I think it’s coming on PC In 2022.
The game is received more positive reviews and good scores.
