We reviewed the Sunbreak expansion upon release – here’s what Francesco Di Meo had to say about it:
With so many mods and additions, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is really a massive expansion that improves on an already excellent game in every possible way. The level of challenge is still generally low compared to previous entries in the series, but no hunter worth their salt should be stopped by this one, as new monsters and gameplay mechanics make the trip to Elgado and the Citadel one to remember.
