The game is really a gem! It has a good amount of content and the story I think is really well done. All of the monsties look amazing and I like how you can modify their genes to give them the attack and other skills you want for battle.
Also, I just found out there is an English dubbed anime TV show of Monster Hunter Stories on YouTube and been watching that, heh. Some characters had voices much like how I envisioned in my ind, while others not so much…like Navirou. Also, not sure why some monsties are named different like the Rathalos…they call them Leo-lay-is instead, and instead of calling your monstie Ratha, they call is Lais.
I enjoy Monster Hunter Stories so much I try to encourage others to play it. I know it’s not like other MH games due to the mechanics, but I think it’s a great gateway game into MH, especially for past Pokemon fans. Also, streamers can stream this one since Nintendo doesn’t own Monster Hunter, so that’s a plus too.
