Monster Hunter Rise Reviews Praise Quality of PC Port

The first reviews for the PC version of Monster Hunter: Rise have appeared online. They show that Capcom has delivered an excellent port.

Tomorrow will mark the release of the PC edition of Monster Hunter: Rise. However, a lot of reviews of this edition have already appeared online and they show that Capcom has prepared an excellent PC port.

At the time of writing, the PC port of Monster Hunter: Rise has an average rating of 88% on Metacritic. This is exactly the same score as the original game, released last March on Nintendo Switch.

Sample reviews of Monster Hunter: Rise on PC

  1. God is a Geek - 10/10
  2. Screen Rant - 5/5
  3. RPG Fan - 92/100
  4. PCGamer - 90/100
  5. PCGamesN - 9/10
  6. TheSixthAxis - 9/10
  7. Wccftech - 9/10
  8. PCInvasion - 8.5/10
  9. Evereye.it - 8/10
  10. WindowsCentral - 4/5

The PC edition is the same great action RPG as the original on Switch (you can read more about it in the article about reviews of the console edition), so the most interesting opinions are about the technical layer. In this respect, the PC edition is said to be excellent.

Reviewers praise the improved graphics and the fact that the higher resolution enables us to appreciate details that were hard to see on Switch. The PC release is also expected to offer good engine optimization and run well even on weaker hardware.

The only drawback mentioned in most reviews, is the inability to import the saved game state saves from the Nintendo Switch edition to the PC. Therefore, veterans who previously played on consoles, after switching to PCs will have to start their monster hunter career from scratch.

The PC edition of Monster Hunter: Rise will debut tomorrow, January 12. A demo has been available on Steam for some time, enabling us to check out the title before launch.
