Product Description

Platform: Nintendo Wii U

The popular fantasy action franchise Monster Hunter is now one of the most iconic gaming series in the world selling over 21 million copies worldwide since the series began in 2004. Players take on the role of a hunter and are sent to explore a settlement within the Monster Hunter universe, completing quests on their journey to seek and slay monsters whilst improving their skills and earning equipment upgrades. With many challenging monsters and over 200 quests the latest edition to the series is set to be the most expansive offering to date. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate utilizes the functionalities of the Wii U console to provide players with a truly intuitive hunting experience. The touch screen feature of both platforms allows players to quickly access in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games whilst the high quality graphics of Wii U powered by the latest iteration of Capcom's MT Framework deliver a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Wii U players will be able to enjoy the hunt with Nintendo 3DS players via a local wireless connection. Gamers that own both a Wii U and Nintendo 3DS can take advantage of the inter compatibility of save data between the two consoles, taking the hunt from the living room wherever they go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best hunt ever. Period. March 19, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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 The looks of the game seem almost outdated but when you stop and think about how successful the Wii was when the graphics couldn't compare to the 360 or PS3 and how much fun the games were, you can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 really don't mean squat as long as the game is fun. The visuals aren't bad in the first place. It is a truly beautiful game. It almost feels wrong killing the majestic beasts that you are quested to take down. The depth of this title is mind boggling. I don't think I can think of a title with this much depth that has released in the recent years. This is probably why people have logged 300+ hours on Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is an updated version of Tri. The graphics are about the same only the Wii U version is in high def and contains a GARGANTUAN amount of more content. Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself:

The following comes from the Capcom website from their employee Yuri:

Starting with some of the most exciting aspects, there are a total of 73 different (both small and large) monsters, including all of the monsters from Monster Hunter Tri, most of the ones introduced in the Japan-only Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, and the fan favorite hip-checkin' Plesioth (and the Green Plesioth). On top of that, they added a couple of new subspecies and rare species and the brand new Brachydios!

So if the last MH game you've played was Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (PSP), brace yourself because this game is pretty much all new content for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun, Not for everyone March 19, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I will update this as I play but first impressions are great. It looks good, not like a PSP game like another reviewer said, and it plays well. No glitches that I have seen yet.

It plays well and if you are used to other Monster Hunters prepare to dive in. Otherwise, start off slowly and prepare for some rough first battles. As with all MH's, watch your enemy and learn it's pattern. Battles will result in less casualties that way.

There is an update coming for off screen support. There is an update now to play online.

All in all, what I'd expect as a veteran, but great fun. This is a difficult grinding game that isn't for everyone though.

On-line co-op is fairly easy if you just follow the prompts. I played only with friends I already on Miiverse. Co-op with a 3DS also went smoothly, although the other player had some difficulty actually playing(Not games fault haha).

Character creation isn't special, a lot of option, but not. You pick male or female, some basic clothes (4 options), a face, hair, a voice, and the colors that are necessary. Males can have a mustache/beard combo. I did not check the female character creation.

You start with a beautiful cut scene, then you are tasked with venturing to find the chiefs son. He gives you a gathering quest for resource points to really start the game. You start with a room, with a chest with the basic version of every weapon. You should choose before venturing out, as you can attack some herbivores.

In the town there are various people to talk to including the forge, shop, and Neko who helps you play online. There is also a pig you can name, play with, and dress in the farm.

Next I will try to play with other players and continue with the quests. I still am enjoying it 10 hours in, and as I saw on miiverse last night from many people, it is very hard to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best online console RPG there is March 19, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Despite what a few with questionable motives have said, this is a great game that actually looks gorgeous most of the time.

It's an expanded and "ultimate" version of a Wii game with an HD overhaul plus Nintendo 3DS connectivity (not required) so you can take your save file to the 3DS and play anywhere and switch back and forth seamlessly. Considering all that plus its status as an online RPG, the graphics are amazing, but it's true that solid items sometimes go right through other solid items, as is the case with many otherwise-great games.

In addition to a terrific online MMO experience somewhat reminiscent of Phantasy Star Online (except with much more variation and more impressive bosses, and this comes from a big PSO fan), it also allows you to play local multiplayer with others who are using a 3DS. So you can play with the Wii U while your friend plays cooperatively on the 3DS right beside you, and you both have extra screens to use. It's great without a 3DS too, but it's a nice option to have that built in.

I've played it enough to feel it's worthy of five stars. It's not an easy game or something for beginners to be able to master quickly, but it's not as impossibly hard as some people say. You just need to learn to get the right equipment--which is very fun, as there's a ton of upgraded armor and weapons--and know to attack and dodge/block. IGN gave it an 8.8 out of 10, so if you're considering this game, please don't let the uninformed one-star reviews deter you.

EDIT: I'd always seen PSO as an MMORPG and have had that in my head when originally labeling this an MMO too in the previous review title, but I agree the nature of online multiplayer games have changed enough that "online RPG" is more appropriate here.
