Picked it up this past Thursday at Best Buy's 9pm Release.

Hopefully will jump into it today after a few more hours of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.

I'm about 5 hours in and I dont see where the critics say the beginning parts are a slog. Story is interesting, music selection although sparse is great and some of the walking parts are challenging.

I think a lot has to do with how the reviewers had to put in a lot of time every day in order to get their review put. Tpis is the kind of game that you should take slow and not rush through.

I've only been able to put in about an hour a night into the game but I am enjoying it thus far.

In terms of music selection, I absolutely love Low Roar's "Don't Be So Serious".

Picked this up despite not knowing if I would like it or not(I didn't think it was for me) but I'll be damned if I am not enjoying it. The story is intriguing, the gameplay is interesting and while the world is not living and breathing it still feels awe inspiring. Honestly if your on the fence its worth giving it a shot.

I like the game but the map is more like walking across undeveloped parts of Iceland rather than what's left of the United States. Where are the remnants of previous infrastructure? It wouldn't just disappear.
