QuickFacts

Critics Consensus: A beautiful, approachable old-school JRPG that serves its purpose to satisfy both veterans and newbies. The grind might leave some action-craving adventurers wanting and there are some bugs to iron out, but the excellent turn-based RPG combat, wonderful visuals and endearing story make this a must play.

8.5/10
Harry Kalagirou (Press Start)

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is even more enjoyable than the original. Small and meaningful improvement build on the same addictive formula and rewarding battle system, with an endearing story to boot that’ll hook in any fan of the franchise. The current state of the Switch version is a shame, but if you can get past the problems, Wings of Ruin has a lot to offer.

While the repetitiveness of its turn-based battle system can become frustrating, Monster Hunter Stories 2 is more than a novel twist on the main series’ core components.

While the Nintendo Switch version holds the game back compared to the PC one, the game itself remains a blast from beginning to end, offerings tons of content and a unique take on the Monster Hunter formula.
