Dan Rizzo says "Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is an incredible JPRG, that places an importance on welcoming gamers to its insanely broad franchise. A introductory that cuts the fat of Monster Hunter’s ghastly grind for a warm embrace that will tie players over until they’re ready to leap into a mainline entry. Wings of Ruin follows through on many improvements over its predecessor, including a gameplay loop that fans will appreciate but most importantly, a memorable plot. It’s a perfect fit for players looking to get the Monster Hunter fix on the go, seating it firmly on Nintendo’s handheld hybrid. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is most certainly a must play for those that aren’t yet acquainted. Its engrossing charm, wit, character and adventure will inspire you to enamour yourself in its longstanding premise, tentatively convincing you to be the next Hunter."
