The game revolves around hunting monsters and completing various tasks for the villagers of Kamura while using the environment to your advantage. But what does Monster Hunter: Rise Very Good? Several factors contribute to its success; the first is its graphics.

This opus takes a direction away from realism Monster Hunter World and adopts a more “cartoony” approach.

Less smooth and crisp than its predecessor, but more lively. The set is enhanced with the addition of HDR and supports up to 120 FPS. The game suffered the same fate. Our hero, who finished the weight of the character, received a weight loss treatment, which made him respond better. Another addition also helps this part: philoptera.

Add in expert versions that unlock later and you have dozens of hours to spare. In addition, other game modes appear.

In addition to story missions and multiplayer Grand-Camp, Calamity missions also appear. This is a “tower defense” mode where you have to strengthen your defenses and face waves of enemies.

With a training ground that has regained its former glory, versatility is also required. As a remote player – the crossbow team – I’ve had fun trying out other weapons and trying out the new capabilities that philopters have to offer. Everything is pleasant to control and easier than the previous opus. Now there are two acquaintances as traveling companions: the Palikos and the Chumskys. The former already existed in the past. As for the second, these are dogs that you can ride to gain mobility. You can use two solos, giving the impression that you’ve never been powerless against monsters. whom The worldyou can send them on resource missions and train them to increase their earnings and survivability.
