Final Fantasy Explorers is a bland ‘My First Monster Hunter’ | GamesBeat


One of Final Fantasy’s strengths is how each game is different from the last. You may not care for Final Fantasy XIII, but it does try to have its own identity, one different from Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy Tactics, or Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon.

Final Fantasy Explorers for the Nintendo 3DS is unlike any other game in the Japanese role-playing franchise’s 29-year history. It may be unique among its relatives, but it’s certainly not one-of-a-kind: It’s a take on Monster Hunter, where you accept quests to take on giant monsters, using their choicest bits to create better gear.

And while this works, the Final Fantasy aspect feels more like a skin thrown on top, not an inherent part of this game.

Monster Hunter 4 U is less than £20 these *cough, it's still the best option*

maybe not for people who just want casual fun and some fanservice?
monster hunter can be really hard to get into you know

Casual fun and fan service sounds a bit ;)

any game that's in the same vein as Mh will always draw comparisons. I still plan to pick explorers up purely because I love the concept of these kind of games.

To be fair though, MH4 does a good job of welcoming new players mind

I really wish reviews would stop expecting Monster Hunter and judge it as it's own game...
