Monster Hunter Riders is Horrible

You aren't missing out on anything.

  • Getting a few angry comments that I ‘just dislike gatcha games’ and how dare I hate MHR and even try it if I hate these types of games. 1) I’m a Mh fan so of course I’ll try it 2) there are a few gatcha games I do like but I’ll admit I don’t have positive affinity to them. People need to chill out. If the reasons I didn’t like the game are standard for these types of games, it doesn’t change the fact that I didn’t like it. I don’t need to become a scholar of gatcha games and lecture that ‘this is quite normal and okay but I just don’t like it’. Everyone has opinions and if you like gatcha games then I’m actually jealous if you like MhR, I legit wanted to. But I don’t. The world moves on. Anyway that’s my two Zenny on this.

    • armedpoop There is one gatcha game I play a lot and while a lot and I mean A LOT of these types of games are not well designed and really push for you to spend money I play dragon ball z dokkan battle and I haven’t spent a single cent and I’m a very high level players

    • @froliz I understand. But do you really feel there is anything that he hasn't touched upon fairly? The gameplay is a loop based Gachapon game. If its the same kind of game 2 hours in and nothing changes I think it's fair to assume that that's the game loop that will stay. What's something meaningful that's missing from the review that I would need to know to better understand this game? How are the raids and events different from the core game loop f.ex?

    • @Yous0147 I was responding to the part where you feel this video is a good enough review when he clearly hasn't really played the game and was only scratching barely the surface, as many others have already pointed out. I was saying you can't be giving a meaningful review if you haven't actually done the work to do so. This is also why I brought up the food analogy where he bailed after eating the bread before even the salad was served and he was already making conclusions about the whole meal as a "review". Yes, the point is to have fair criticism, and that's not the case here. He's criticizing something that he hasn't even gone through. I don't actually care if he would still hate the game after playing through everything (and we don't know yet, because he literally played maybe 10% of the game if he's lucky), but until he's there, he is in no position to "review" it.

    • @froliz I'll be honest, I don't completely understand what you mean by that. If you imply that this video is subjective and biased then I don't entirely disagree, but I don't think the point of it is to be devoid of it either nor are most reviews. The point is to be fair with your criticism and highlight how the game is and what it does in relation to the viewer and/or yourself, doing so fairly and honestly. This is an MH channel, the hype was about a new MH Story sequel, and the gameplay people expect from these kinds of games are fairly well felt throughout the fanbase. That is slightly biased and subjective, sure but that's not a bad thing it's just how the lens of this channel is projected through which should be a given. Even outside of that, many of Gaijins points are so general that it fits that of a general review just fine, and the showcase is deep enough that you get a good feel for what this game is about. I guess we might just be looking at it differently

  • I'd also like to point out that even by mobile/gacha game standards, the game's UI is a real mess and not intuitive at all.

  • It is super sad that Gacha games exists. Some Gacha games are so good, especially the story, but it is unfortunate that it's Gacha. Can't progress through the story unless you give them crap ton of money to MAYBE get a character/item that'll help you progress. Glad you saved thousands of hours from other people from checking this out! :)

  • Thank you so much! I was so curious about this as, really stories is what genuinely got me into monster hunter. So seeing that there was a teen version of it got me super excited because I thought it was going to be how it was on the 3DS, a fun game. It genuinely disappoints me that this isn’t the sequel I was hoping for, but thank you for wasting your hours to play this to stop others like me from playing something that they wouldn’t probably enjoy. This means a lot to me, and we both will be wishing for a real monster hunter stories 2 to happen!! Also I love watching your other videos even if I haven’t played the other versions of monster hunter, it’s really fun getting to learn what monsters are in the games and what I could run into when I have the ability to get my next monster hunter game. Keep up the amazing videos!

  • I was looking forward to the game but when I saw this video on release I skipped it as was your recommendation. However 3 days ago I tried it and it's almost like a completely different game as to what you described... Levelling is very easy, you get plenty of levelling resources, I've gotten enough of the currency to spin the gatcha quite a few times and I've put in like... 20 hours so far, haven't spent anything.

  • What if we have kinship fight on our side to defeat hard monster in mhw? Like in different idea, we have kinship orange bar that if the orange bar is full, its ready to call pet monster to fight alongside you like in witcher when we save pukei from choking by hard vine, and during fight leshen, pukei will comeback and fight for you. Its like scale bound game combine with even better playing mechanic, and also fun though. I wish they gonna make it.

  • Monster Hunter: Stories deserves a much better sequel than this. I mean, imagine all the new potential Monsties that could be used. Banbaro, Odagaron, or even Kulve Taroth just to name a few. Heck, they could even add more classic monsters like the Mizutsune or the Gammoth as rideable. Yes, Stories didn't sell as well as mainstream MH games, but it was still successful and has a large enough fanbase to warrant a proper sequel instead of this poor cash-grab. Or they could at least have the decency to port the original Stories onto the Switch.

  • Looks like there's a conflict of information, maybe consider posting a follow up video to revise your findings. The following is what I've found as of today: a.) You're handed a free top tier 5* unit of your choice when you finish tutorial (extremely generous for a new Gatcha game, this is usually implemented as a catch up mechanism a year in, or garbage tier 5* to wow people) b.) You're given 2.2k gems to do 20 pulls with right off the bat. 5% drop rate (most gacha is 2-3%), thus you should get 1 more 5* c.) You get a free 5* ticket d.) You gain stamina as you level, I'm level 10 now and my stamina is now at 349/85, not including the energy potions provided which gives me another 2000 energy. e.) Players were given 20 resource farming ticket each. You can use those in lieu of using gems after doing it twice a day. After using 6 of each ticket I managed to max level my 3 characters and monster to their soft cap. f.) 5* monsters can be farmed, does not require gatcha. G.) Character orbs can be farmed by sending characters on expedition, or can be substituted with quest/achievement rewarded 5* rider orbs. Meaning once you get a rider, you'll eventually be able to get them to max level without spending $ In your video you've made it sound as if the only way to progress is to spend money. I completely disagree with that, I dare say even if I were to spend money within the next month... It wouldn't help me progress at all. :/

  • I get that you generally don't like gacha games (which is fine), but a lot of the points made in this video seem to just be blatant misinformation or misunderstanding how the game works. A little sad to see so many people skip on this game without thinking twice after watching this video, but oh well.

  • Oh boy... I was so happy when I heard a new stories game was going to be released, but now I'm disappointed. I do like gatcha games... but they get boring with time and I end up forgetting about them. Plus, buying ingame stuff with real money? That's not the monster hunter I know. The fact that ingame purchases aren't a thing in this franchise is what makes it better, because what matters is practice and experience... not actual money. I will also keep on daydreaming abt a mhs 2, because that first concept was amazing and an amazing opportunity for younger fans... in fact stories is what made me want to get into the series and I'm sad that so many veterans and generally fans of the series dislike it so much just because is more cartoony and has different battle mechanics. Just imagine how amazing would be flying around with your Rathalos having world graphics...

  • I actually love the clean, yet recognizably classic, colorful MH themed UI (I'm not a fan of MHW's Westernized/gritty UI). Out of all the gatcha games I've played, this game's UI doesn't look as cluttered as the others and it's very easy to find the icons you want/need to see. It's sad though that all those detailed icons, backgrounds, and other assets aren't used in a REAL game.

  • honestly i think i’m more upset that it’s not another stories game instead, stories was great, hell if i could find a physical copy i’d buy it again just so i could give it to a friend, i’d want a lot of people that are into monster hunter and into the 3ds to give it a chance, that game is actually pretty fun but they always seem to get something well done and then decide to make something worse, i dunno why companies do this besides money and it isn’t going to be as well loved as stories is, that’s for sure, then again gambling addiction is a hell of a thing, i guess anything could happen here.

  • up to 30$ for a 10 pull is pretty standard and there is no point crying about that, when 30$ doesnt even give you enough currency to do a 10 pull though that is just stupid, really sucks the game looks wise is pretty nice. as he mentions to this day i cant even put any other game developer[mobile] up with cygames since their games are not only great but they are super generous with their premium currency, take princess connect right now for their 2nd anniversary you can do a 10 pull for free every single day of feb, thats crazy no other game that i know of does that....on top of that u get up to 500 premium currency per day lol, madlads over there.

  • Deserved review tbh...the game suffers from terrible auto AI forcing you to play so good luck If you don't have time, shitpoor Gacha rates with terrible planning (hey let's have a featured banner with no rate up and exclusive 5* Monsters like Nargacuga and Brachydios locked behind them)..isn't helping the game either when not even a week later, a new banner is introduced encouraging you to spend more with the shit poor rates included. Gameplay suffers further when the game encourages you to spend again when "harder" content requires certain characters and Monsters to clear easily without you spending your lifetime similar to FGO grinding a character to be able to clear... difficulty is screwed when the numbers can go from 7-10k to a whopping 30k in one stage...whole game stinks of trying to get money off blind idiots who'll spend because of brand loyalty
