Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 May 2021
My brother and I have played monster hunter games since we were small. It was something we always enjoyed doing together and he's a massive fan of the series. So I decided to surprise him for his birthday and pre ordered two copies of the collector's edition so that we'd be able to play together and so he could add the little extras to his collection.

Amazon had other ideas.

They cancelled my (two) pre orders a week before launch. This meant I was left scrambling to try and get two copies and, sadly, I was unable to get the collectors editions I had already ordered months in advance...because they placed a limit on it (Despite the lovely emails I got INVITING me to reorder but which didn't allow for it!). By the time I rang a friend to use their account to buy another there were none left and my perfect plan to enjoy Rise together with him was crushed like a novice hunter under Gammoth's mighty girth.

To say I was upset was an understatement and I was left scrabbling at different websites just to get a regular copy of the game rather than the collector's copy I'd so dearly wanted to get him. I did, eventually, get another copy but to cancel someone's two copy pre order (I'd see through cancelling an order for something obscene like fifteen but two? Really?) on such short notice and then limit them to one copy, when you do have it in stock, is simply indecent.

I shudder to think how many children were disappointed in a similar fashion and how many fans were left aggrieved despite having ordered early to -avoid- disappointment.
