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 The looks of the game seem almost outdated but when you stop and think about how successful the Wii was when the graphics couldn't compare to the 360 or PS3 and how much fun the games were, you can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 A diamond in an age of gaming ruled by paid DLC May 10, 2014
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U
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. Like the time flies while playing this game if you enjoy it (sometimes too fast lol)

Monster Hunter: What it is in a nutshell
Monster Hunter is an action RPG where you, a human, fight monsters or "waverns". This monsters vary from waverns (dragons), brute waverns (Think of T-rex's, tiny arms, long legs with big heads) and massive Elder Dragons (A literal sand whale can Jhen Moran) You slay these monsters. After they are slain you carve the monsters. After you carve the monsters you make your weapons and armor from them. For example you kill a fire monster you can 1.) Make fire resistant armor or 2.) Make a fire weapon.There are 12 weapon types which I will go over later. This franchise is NOT for the faint of heart. You will die...A LOT lol I'm not joking. I'm serious. This game is difficult especially for new players. This game is one of the easier games of the franchise and I have seen people die...a lot. Some people get mad and quit while others learn that you are at a disadvantage against the monsters you fight. There are time where you feel like the "prey." Monsters have no health bar so the only time you know they are about to die is when they limp off. You will be fighting with the fear of the unknown. Is the monster one hit away from death or 20 hits? Also his is a "grinding" game. Majority of the time is spent on the grind to make your armor/weapons by killing a specific monster for rare carves. Typically "beat" this game once you kill the final Elder Dragon.

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.

I am not a big fan of the Japanese style of video games or "anime." Some of it is just a culture gap, but other things about it are just strange and sometimes troubling. Read more
