I'm not convinced by this to be honest. It's not really a looker at all and I'm playing on Graphics mode on the X1X. They've fixed the online on Xbox though via a small patch and I hunted a monster with 2 others who seemed to be noobs. I can just about see the 'hook' but it hasn't grabbed me just yet. I'm playing with my mate tonight so ill get a good couple of hours in and maybe then ill see what the fuss is about.
The visuals are great not for the graphical fidelity and technical mastery but for the visual and environmental design. I think it's a lovely looking game, especially when you get to the Coral Highlands (third map). I also really appreciate the integration between creatures and the environment, the world genuinely feels alive - especially with the endemic life that is now a thing.

Is there a point where you are able to take more than one weapon with you? I'd love to have the bagpipes as my secondary
No, but you can change equipment mid-quest by returning to a camp and entering the tent, which is new to World
The hunting horn is best in full teams as a support so you can make optimal use of the buffs. The good thing is that you can get a horn for your palico so he can buff you in single player (and in 2 player where you both still get your palicos).
I am exclusively a gunner and have been almost exclusively since the PSP days, the game just clicks with me way more. I think it's definitely worth trying out the different weapons to find the one that works for you as the experience can be so different.
I'm playing it on PS4 and I think it looks great, personally.
Picked this game up a couple of days ago. Am I the only person in the universe to use the Hunting Horn when hunting on my own? Or are there more of my kind out there? The lure of a didgeridoo was too much for me.
