From GameWatcher: "It’s easy to fall into the trap of expecting a wholly different game when starting Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. But dismissing the spin-off sequel as a title to fill the gaps between mainline releases – with Rise still a Nintendo Switch exclusive – would be quite a shame. Capcom has managed to deliver a fully-fledged turn-based RPG that does its own thing while remaining very conscious and making excellent use of the name it carries.
In Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, you’re a fledgling Rider who’s been entrusted an egg that could hatch a Rathalos with the power to bring ruin to the world. You set off in search of a way to stop that from happening, all while battling and collecting Monsties but also gaining understanding about Kinship with these creatures."
