I was going to say only if you like pulling your hair out, but since it seems like you do enjoy that, go for it.

I would strongly encourage to go into the game with a buddy or someone else that is willing to guide you. Game has a huge learning curve. Didn't like it at first but when you get hooked... You get HOOKED.

There is a story but that's never been the selling point of the series. In single player, you are given a bunch of quests that you can choose. Only a few of those quests are mandatory to continue progressing. Rinse and repeat.


Learning curves don't scare me. I really like challenges. LOVED the Soulsborne games, especially the bosses. I also love collecting cool looking armor.

Its ok, personally I think the game tries to cramp too much into its weapons for its own good. Also hunts take too long for a mobile game(min 30~55min per round) so I hope you don't play the game while traveling.

Other then that its a decent game.

Hunts take 5-15 minutes if you're good. Also, this isn't a mobile game.

Depends. Like even a pretty decent player is probably gonna take 25+ minutes soloing a quest like Fire Drill for the first time, where you need to take down two targets that likely nearly one-shot you (not to mention that some weapons have absolutely freaking godawful matchups vs G-rank Stygian).

Any quest in four-player multiplayer taking longer than 15 minutes, outside of a PUG level 140 GQ against two monsters or Gog, is probably a sign of a really awful team, though.
