2 September 2013
Summary: Monster Hunter Tri came out for the Wii in 2009, and now Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is an expanded version, made available for the Wii U and 3DS. It has updated visuals, more weapons, more quests, and of course, more monsters. With such a hefty amount of content added, it definitely feels more like an expansion than just a few add-ons.

The lack of dedicated online play really is a let down, but local play is still great, and the core premise of the game makes it great for portable play as you can limit your play to a quick run to gather...
Excerpt: I’ve been a huge Monster Hunter fan since day 1 when I received a promotional copy for the original game on Playstation 2 all the way back in 2005. It’s a great and unique series that, surprisingly, hasn’t really had any competitor come close to its quality or standard (except, interestingly, Capcom’s own Dragon’s Dogma).
