Summary: Big fan of JRPGs here. Monster hunter reminds me of a JRPG without the in-depth story, but with a much more in-depth battle and upgrade system (not to mention about 12 weapon classes). It's great fun.
Summary: Monster hunter 3 ultimate is a great game. I first bought it for the 3ds and finished the high rank quests in the Moga village. Then bought a it for the WII U (my only WII U game) for the online play. Onto the review... Monster hunter 3 ultimate offers a HUGE variety of weapons and armors. It does have a limited create a character feature where you can choose to be a male or a female, and change facial features, etc.
Summary: This is a review from my 10 year old son. It's a great game, and I love it but it stared off kind of slow. At the beginning, it isn't so much hunting monsters as it is fetching things for people. Lots of reading on the quests. Also the save game feature can be a pain because it only allows you to save a certain points. It does get more interesting with better action as you get further into it.
Summary: If you played Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii, then you have played about 50 percent of this game. This is basicly Monster Hunter Tri with an expansion and HD graphic. Never the less it is a great game and a must have for any Monster Hunter fan.
Summary: This review will be simple and to the point. Q:Why did I purchase Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate? A: Because I played Monster Hunter Tri (for Wii) and enjoyed it very much. For those of you who may not be aware: MH3 Ultimate is a re-release of MH Tri, but with updated graphics and a ton of added content such as new weapons/armor/monsters/quests/etc. Q: What do I like about MH3 Ultimate? A: The new content does not take long to get into.
Summary: I don't know where the other reviewers come off giving it one star but this game is probably the best title the Wii U has to offer right now (although my 3 year old son might argue that Sonic & Allstars Racing Transformed is haha). The looks of the game seem almost outdated but when you stop and think about how successful the Wii was when the graphics couldn't compare to the 360 or PS3 and how much fun the games were, you can quickly come to the conclusion that graphics...
Summary: I had the Wii version of Monster Hunter Tri and put over 100 hours into it. The game was great and compelling, but the lack of monster variety ultimately hurt the experience. This, however, is the real deal; nearly triple the monster count, more balanced difficulty curve (monsters start out easier than the Wii version, but ultimately become ungodly tough), a new Shakalaka partner to bring along and loads of weapons and armour suits to craft.
Summary: The best Monster Hunter game yet, once you get into it you will be losing dozens and dozens of hours to this game, the battles are fun and satisfying, there are tons of weapons and Armour to create, playing online with friends is a great addition to the game, just don't let the outdated visuals put you off.
Summary: Monster Hunter is a truly intriging game. It follows a simple format of kill one giant monster and then kill another until you unlock more monsters to hunt. It's simple and shouldn't be good but it just is. It hooks you on the formula and you become addicted to it. I played Monster Hunter Tri on Wii before I but this one and anyone else who has played that will know what this is all about.
