Did we miss something on diversity?

Interactive, engaging, and family friendly! Great game!

If you are a parent who truly wants the best for your child, I advise you to continue reading. I was very hesitant to allow my 12 year old son to play this game after my husband went behind my back and blindly purchased it for him. After several days of scrutiny and researching, however, I decided that Monster Hunter is a completely appropriate game for a child his age to play. Not sure if I had made the right decision, I paid close attention to my son for the next few days. To my surprise, he only spent a couple of hours a day playing the game before going outside to swim in our pool or toss a ball around. Sometimes he would just explore. I couldn't believe my eyes. My son, who would rather sit inside and play Fortnite on the Xbox, was beginning to venture into the outdoors. Pleased and a little confused, I credited everything to this game. Although I had my doubts, Monster Hunter's interactive plot and online compatibility features makes for an outstanding game.

Great game, but a little violent...

Great game, mildly violent but has positive role models, positive messages, and excellent gameplay. If you're new to the game I suggest you play it alone or with your child first before making your final decision on this game.
