Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak is more of the same for Rise fans, which is great, but the lack of truly ‘new’ stuff is disappointing.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is an enjoyable expansion full of cool new monsters but not many new ideas.

If you grit your teeth and pay out for the DLC, you won’t be disappointed: Sunbreak is an essential expansion for any Monster Hunter fan, and – paired with Rise – may well be the best entry point for anyone eager to learn more about this fascinating series, too.
