One Famitsu reviewer awards Capcom’s Monster Hunter Stories 2 an impressive 10/10

The latest edition of the popular Weekly Famitsu magazine is out now in Japan and this week’s edition only contains two reviews. Don’t be fooled though, as Issue 1701 contains a review for Capcom’s intriguing Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin which is a timed-exclusive for the Nintendo Switch system. The four reviewers were won over by the Monster Hunter spin-off adventure with one reviewer even going as far as to give the game a perfect 10/10. Here’s the final score for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin 9/9/10/8 which equals 36/40.

  • Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin (Switch) – 9/9/10/8 [36/40]
  • Monster wo Taoshite Tsuyoi Ken ya Yoroi wo Te ni Shinasai. Shindemo Akiramezu ni Tsuyoku Narinasai. Yuusha Tai ga Maou wo Taosu Sono Hi wo Shinjiteimasu. (Switch) – 7/9/8/7 [31/40]

  1. I played the demo and it did impress me in a lot of ways. The visuals are beautiful, especially these character animations. All of the attacks in battle look quite exciting, which for me is very important in a turn-based battle system. Cutscene are also pretty amazingly done, IMO.

    However, I’m not quite if I’m getting the game yet. The game’s presentation feels amazing, but the gameplay, at least in the demo, felt like quite a lot of busywork and side content. If this is in any way indicative of the full game, then it’s going to have quite the slow pacing, and that’s something I’m really not a fan of in RPGs. In this game, it looks like you’re wasting lots and lots of time with just exploring randomly spawned dungeons and collecting monsters before any significant story progression happens. The game isn’t really like Pokemon, either, where catching new monsters is quick. No, every monster in this games requires runing through an entire mini dungeon, and you’ll never even know what you’ll get.

    So yeah, I’m quite on the fence so far. I think I’ll wait a bit and maybe check out a few reviews to see how the game develops deeper into the story.

    I’d definitely love to own that Ena amiibo, though. To bad it’s a Nintendo Store exclusive. No idea what they were thinking there.
