• Story
The story begins in a forest near the village of Riders. Three young friends—the hero, Lilia, and Cheval—stumble upon a shining egg.

The trio perform a playful imitation of the Rite of Kinship, only to be shocked when it actually succeeds!

The egg hatches, revealing a baby Rathalos, a flying wyvern also known as "the King of the Skies." The trio affectionately name him "Ratha," and take him back to the village.

Days later, without warning, the village is beset upon by a monster infected by "the Black Blight." They manage to drive it away, but not before it devastates the town—and leaves indelible scars in the hearts of Cheval and Lilia.

A year passes...

The hero receives a Kinship Stone from the Village Chief and officially becomes a Rider. Cheval and Lilia both leave the village, each on their own path. The hero, though separated now from childhood friends, partners up with the cheerful Navirou, and embarks upon a new adventure into the world of hunters.

A story of friendship and triumph await you—ride on into the world of Monster Hunter Stories!

As a casual Monster Hunter fan, I find MH Stories to be an interesting spin on the main games. There are many familiar elements but they are well attuned to the turn-based battle system. Really liking the character-driven narrative here (unlike in the main games). Would've been an easy 5/5 if not for the constant audio glitches. Whenever there's a lot of sound going on at the same time, such as in town or during combat, they just wouldn't play properly. And the problem only gets worse over time.

Pretty good game honestly worth the 20 there's bugs here and there with audio and gameplay but nothing that breaks the game. However, i do hate how the game kinda holds your hand sometimes and tells you "we shouldn't go this way". I'd much rather run into a boss I'm hopeless to defeat making me explore another section of the game and then coming back to claim my victory. That way it doesn't feel like my hand is being held throughout the game.

Good game...but there are some issues here and there. The controls are better suited for a controller rather than a touch screen, and I started facing an audio issue where the speakers let out distorted sounds, mind you my phone's speakers work completely fine with other games. Oh and did I mention that the game lags for no absolute reason? Also, the network battle isn't available anymore.
