Don’t let the reviewers scare you with it being a hard game to play, yes it is a challenging game if you’ve never played any game of the Dark Souls series. Still, like all of them, it is incredibly satisfying to defeat a tough enemy finally. There’s also the inclusion of progressing the story with your friends via multiplayer, and the content there is much content to explore which does not include the upcoming content by From Software.
The expansion for MHR will add Master Rank quest content with even more monsters and weapons to explore. While the expansion can be costly, the base game will not only come at a discount, but Capcom doesn’t disappoint when they demand you to pay full price for their DLC, definitely worth the experience.
