I’m still in low rank, currently at 5 star village, 3 star hub. I have to say, I don’t like Rise as much as I like World (World was my first Monster Hunter game).
I don’t like the village / hub seperation. I don’t like that all the monsters instantly attack you on sight. None of them will just walk past and leave you alone, not even Kulu-Ya-Ku. Very annoying when you’re just trying to pick some mushrooms. And I really don’t like the rampages.
Those gripes aside, I love everything else. Especially the hammer’s new Impact Crater move. VERY satisfying :-)
