Great premise, but needed lots of polish.

Summary: This is the first Monster Hunter game I have tried. The premise sounded interesting so I decided to buy this game and see how fun it would be. Graphics FMV 9/10 in-game 2/10 While the box art, and in game movies look fantastic. The in game graphics are dated, as in gamecube era dated. I was beyond disappointed with the in-game look. Pixilation, cross texturing, blurred characters and mobs, and poor rendering plague the game.
Summary: If you enjoyed MHTRI on the Wii, or any MH game for that matter, you'll love this one to death. If you're worried about it being a repeat of TRI with just better graphics, you're dead wrong. Yes the story does start off the same, but the online is totally different, & that's where this game shines the most. Don't get me wrong though, the offline mode still has a lot of fresh elements to it, & unlike before there are a ton of cool new features.
Summary: This game is GREAT!!!! But before I start the game review let's just give a special shoutout to how EXTREMELY FAST the shipping was!!! I ordered another game 2 days before this one and this game still beat the other game!!! I forgot which seller I ordered this from, and I'm not sure if this review gets directly posted under the one I bought from, but it was the cheapest one that had free shipping!!! Now onto the game!!!
Summary: Really unimpressed by this game. First off, the game interface uses about the most unintuitive set of controls I've ever come across in a modern game (ex: the Start button is used to kick or for a special attack???). The dialogs are way too wordy, convoluted, and too small to read. The camera system is terrible. Controls are sluggish and terrible. I heard this game was challenging, and it's true, but it's a challenge because the controls just feel off.
Summary: I seen there is only one review of this (as of May 10,2014) and that compelled me to write this review. I will state that I indeed have a bias for Monster Hunter as it is probably my favorite franchise right now. Between Monster Hunter Unite, Monster Hunter Tri and this game I have over 1000 total hours played.
