Not what I expected at all

Summary: I just don't want to put hours into a game to have fun with it anymore. I put probably an hour and a half in and had no idea what I was doing. This game seems monotonous, overly complicated and boring. My hardcore gaming days are in the past, this game just isn't for me. If you want to sink a lot of time and effort into a game though this may be for you.
Summary: I bought this game not really knowing what to expect. I've just finished boxing with a slime covered boxing t-rex whose punches create explosions. This game is pure adrenaline and fun. I was kind of afraid there would be a lot of grinding involved, but the pacing is actually great. It places all the focus where it should be, Monster Hunting.
Summary: Ah, Monster Hunter, where there is literally no back story to yourself and all you know is you want to be a world class hunter of monsters. I'll be honest, I got into the franchise playing Monster Hunter Tri for the Wii, and where as players who've been hunting on PSP grounds claimed it lacking, I thought the game was brilliant. The literal definition I could of described Tri was an MMO on console.

Summary: My granddaughter went ballistic, and was able to copy her files from the same game she plays on her Nintendo DS (something or other). She tells me is it "way better", and you know little girls never lie to their Grandpa...
Summary: The game starts off slow to introduce the basics of the game, but quickly becomes a challenge when the actual combat with large boss monsters begin. For a beginner to the series, it may take a while for the controls and movements to set in. Coupled with the unforgiving though fair game-play, frustration can set in. After this initial learning phase, the game becomes much more rewarding and fulfilling. Despite lack of leveling, the item grind gives a sense of progression.
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.
