I've been told that if I "only" have one hour to play per session, it isn't worth getting Monster Hunter World.  Thoughts?

I'm still loving it.

In all honesty some of the initial story missions may take longer but hunts all have time limits and the max is 50 minutes.

The early game will be pretty tough as your gear sucks and it will take time getting use to all of the systems.

That said, once you figure it out the pattern follows:
Theoretically you can pick a hunt, optimize gear for the monster you will be fighting, eat (this is important), kill said monster, post hunt inventory management and upgrades in an hour.

One thing this does not have is a pause so if you are interrupted a lot that will cause issues. Even if you play offline it runs it like it's on-line. each hunt can be considered an instance.

Anyway, that's my $.02. If I get a hunt or three in a night I'm happy.

Thanks Jamus, I appreciate that.  I've never been so conflicted on whether to buy a game or not!

I had some unexpected expense today so it may have a to wait a few weeks, but I'm leaning toward picking it up once again. :)

Fully understand there Huw - I'm on a buying moratorium for now also (although this month's Humble Monthly is tempting). I grabbed MHW before I dropped the hammer on myself.

Well I just did the weekly banking and it turns out things are better than I thought.  Also, after wondering whether to buy MHW ever since it came out, I decided that it will bug me forever if I don't just buy the bloody thing.  So I did.  :)

Will do mate.  My sessions will probably be few and far between but I intend to play whenever possible.  I really like what I've seen so far.  The combat isn't as janky as I feared it might be and I'm amazed at how beautifully designed the world is.  I'm looking forward to learning all the different systems and figuring out my build etc.

Unfortunately I decided to make my character look like the biggest cock imaginable and I regret it now.  :DD Maybe I should start again before I do too much.
