OK so I love monster hunter and I love dynasty warriors. So I got this expecting a mix. It somewhat is, and I know plenty of people love the game. Me? Eh.
So the setting was not good for me, I like old japan but the whole fighting an oni menace is kind of redundant. The combat was not very pleasing and the only weapon I found remotely enjoyable was the spear. The oni felt lifeless and so did many of the character. Overall I would say rent this yourself to try it, some will like it some wont.
basically this is monster hunter but you can beat it by yourself if you want or with friends with you want it also has a much better story then monster hunter
i believe its better then monster hunter because it has a better story, fun characters and best of all you have the option of play from start to finish by yourself unlike in monster hunter were the difficulty gets to the point where you cant progress after a certain point making you NEED a partner or 2
