Monster Hunter Stories 2 review: An easy-going JRPG that makes us want Switch Pro

Capcom’s Switch sequel is a thoroughly entertaining turn-based RPG… as long as you can put up with the framerate

Monster Hunter Stories 2 is a solid and thoroughly entertaining turn-based RPG. As long as you can put up with some bad jokes and relatively low difficulty, there's a lot of fun to be had here.

  • The battle system is easy to get to grips with
  • Exploring the open world with your Monsties is a joy
  • Grinding battles with wild monsters is minimal
  • Has performance issues during busier moments
  • May be a little too easy for hardened RPG fans
4 / 5
