While Sunbreak has seen plenty of praise, one thing critics did highlight in their reviews was that it’s more of what made Rise famous. If you didn’t like the base game or previous Monster Hunter titles, don’t expect this expansion to reinvent the wheel. Lower scores often cited a bloated campaign dragging the score down. All in All, it’s a title that Monster Hunter fans will love.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is available now for Steam and Nintendo Switch, and you can grab it starting at $39.99. While all players can purchase this expansion, you’ll need to beat the base game before playing this content. Even so, the base game is well worth your time.
