Iceborne is the definitive endgame of Monster Hunter World and a proper sendoff to the game that ignited a new generation of fans in the West to experience the series for the first time.
That's what it comes down to, really. These days, there aren't many games I'm willing to surrender hundreds of hours of free time to, but somehow, some way, Monster Hunter found an opening. World laid the groundwork, and now Iceborne is here to carry me through the rest of 2019 and beyond. Mentally, I'm not even ready to start thinking about Capcom's post-launch plans for the expansion.
Iceborne is a truly massive expansion that adds much to an already excellent game.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a sizeable, satisfying addition to the base game, expanding the content and scope while adding welcome quality of life features. Welcoming to both new and veteran players, low and high geared alike, the expansion steps up the challenge but gives the right tools for players to progress, and provides countless hours of content in a new and addictive endgame mode. It is absolutely worth the price.
Iceborne is a hefty expansion that provides a bigger, badder challenge. The fights can be both exhilarating and maddening, making it an experience of intense highs and lows

Instead of a few monsters sprouting up in an existing area and a new set of armor, what you’d get with a typical DLC, Iceborne adds a vast new region filled with unseen flora and fauna to explore, fight, and catalog. It improves key gameplay systems tremendously and expands on nearly every aspect of the original game.
The Iceborne expansion builds seamlessly upon the thriving ecosystem created by Monster Hunter World to provide a thrilling and fulfilling experience.

Monster Hunter is a massive expansion with some huge content (monsters, quests, ranks, sets…) and some good new features that will please everyone. A very good way to keep on hunting alone or with some friends, for dozens, no, hundreds of hours.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is an excellent expansion so large that it almost feels like a sequel. It's a better version of a great game.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has everything that a fan could possibly want – challenging monsters, tons of new weapons and armor, an incredibly in-depth combat system with even more nuance thanks to new moves and mechanics, and a boat-load of new quests. The typical annoyances remain but don't let that stop you from undertaking this icy exodus.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne adds just what Monster Hunter World needed and even more quality of life changes to the greatest Monster Hunter game of all time. The new monsters and quests pack a punch, and there's enough content to justify the price. If you're going to take on this cool expansion, make sure you bring along some friends and a few hot drinks.
Monster Hunter World is a fantastic entry into the series and stands as a pinnacle of accomplishments for Capcom. Iceborne does everything within its power to improve upon that and does it fantastically.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne offers a new adventure with more monsters to hunt, new regions to explore, more movements and combat mechanics, a new difficulty rank, and ultimately, a whole mountain of contents to enjoy. A must-have expansion for any Monster Hunter World player.
Tom Marks – 9 / 10
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne adds loads of impressive monsters and tons of quality-of-life improvements to an already incredible game.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is more than an expansion: it's a generous gift to its fans (both the seasoned and the fresh ones), one that can last for hundreds of hours of the purest monster-hunting fun.

Iceborne takes what's already fantastic and nearly doubles the original game in size. If you haven't played Monster Hunter yet, now is the time to start!

Monster Hunter’s newest expansion adds tons of monsters, and comes with a punishing difficulty
The sheer visual variety on display here is staggering, from snow-capped peaks and frozen lakes to icy caverns covered in stalactites with fish perma-frosted into the ground. Hoarfrost Reach is a visual feast in a game that’s chock-full of them and provides a unique aesthetic not found in the vanilla game.
9 / 10
With everything that it brings to the table, Iceborne is a truly monstrous expansion. Capcom has gone above and beyond in crafting an additional adventure that breathes a shocking amount of new life into Monster Hunter World, setting a new benchmark for the series in terms of pure quality. Although many of the base game's gripes remain, it's ultimately very difficult to pick holes in such a supremely satisfying experience. Iceborne is Monster Hunter at its absolute best.
– Jason Hidalgo – 9.5 / 10
Monster Hunter World Iceborne builds on its excellent predecessor with a plethora of new and returning monsters as well as some fun new mechanics to boot. The Clutch Claw is an especially fun addition to the game while Guiding Lands helps flesh out the endgame for folks who felt World didn't do quite as good a job in that department. Admittedly, certain endgame aspects can be a bit too grindy and some of the side stuff like Lynian picture taking can be wonky at times. Overall, however, Iceborne proves to be a better Monster Hunter World for fans of the series.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a massive undertaking that feels as fresh and expansive as a brand new game.
Iceborne is one of the books and I can’t wait to see what the developers do next for this franchise, because I’m not sure if it can get better than this.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne skimps a bit on introducing totally new monsters, but it's still a large expansion filled with very smart refinements. The campaign alone comes close to matching the scale of the base game, and it wisely ditches some of its more tedious elements. If you played through the original and wanted more, then Iceborne is almost everything you could ask for. It's not a full sequel, but it's pretty darn close.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has blown me away with just the sheer quality that it puts forth
