Wild Hearts’ building mechanics add a very fun twist to its familiar but well-executed co-op monster hunting formula.

Far more than just a Monster Hunter clone, Wild Hearts exceeds expectations and then some, mixing streamlined action with inventive new toys.

Sublime combat can only do so much to carry a flawed building system, too few monsters and terrible performance.

"You'll need to stop and familiarize yourself with a monster and its attacks if you want to succeed"

Arguably the best Monster Hunter clone ever made and while it's not quite as good as Capcom's series it does have some unique and interesting ideas of its own – despite initial impressions to the contrary.

The gameplay matters most in Wild Hearts – it’s fresh, chaotic, and breathless. It does not reinvent the hunting genre, but it does just enough with its addition of the Karakuri gadgets and arresting locales (not to mention the myriad ways to traverse them) to give the genre a fresh and welcome perspective. A stronger story would have been welcome, and the camera leaves much to be desired, but Wild Hearts is a deeply engaging experience even with these faults.

Wild Hearts latches onto the familiar gameplay loop of Monster Hunter and infuses it with a fast-paced crafting system that lets you build your way to victory.
