Product Description

Platform: Nintendo 3DS

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 Nintendo 3DS system to provide players with a truly intuitive hunting experience. The touch screen feature allows players to quickly access in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games whilst the high quality graphics 3D visuals of Nintendo 3DS powered by the latest iteration of Capcom's MT Framework deliver a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Taking advantage of the portability of Nintendo 3DS, players can exchange their guild card that contains all their hunter's information with other players via StreetPass. Players can experience the world of Monster Hunter alone or in four player local play using Nintendo 3DS. Finding nearby hunters to adventure on quests with is now even easier via the local Nintendo 3DS search feature. 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.

Yes, this is the Ultimate version of Tri with many "new" additions. I say "new" because alot of them aren't new for the series (most, if not all, of the additions were also in Freedom Unite for the PSP), but new for Tri/3. This adds alot of content to the Tri formula.

STORY: You start off the same way as in Tri in Moga Village, which is in serious trouble from earthquakes. You do get a full set of armor and one of every weapon (your character has a sword, but you can switch to other weapons at the chest in your house) this time around. You don't have to wait to unlock the Longsword, Switch-Axe, etc., since a basic version is already there, along with new weapons, like the Bow, Dual Blades, Gunlance, and Hunting Horn. You also get access to a new island with different/more powerful monsters, though I would recommend newer players to stay away from there until they feel comfortable with the game. The first quests start out simple enough (fetch quests, kill "x" number of easy monsters, etc.) and are still centered around Lagiacrus being the earthquake maker. That's about all I'll cover for the beginning. Moving on...

CONTROLS: They are better than I was afraid they would be. You control your character with the slider pad and the camera with the L-Should button (centers the camera behind you), D-Pad, D-Pad on the touch screen, and/or the auto-targeting system, which targets onto large "boss" enemies and is also on the touch screen. You can customize the touch screen and adjust the size of the buttons you place, like the D-Pad, which is a nice little convenience. Personally, I usually stick with the L-Shoulder, since it's easier and I like being centerd, but I do use the D-Pad on the touch screen for swimming.

The objective of Monster Hunter is that players must create a character and are then dropped into a village that serves as a home base for the remainder of the game. In this village, players will find an assortment of characters, of which each serves a different purpose. You have armour and weapon merchants and smiths, an upgradable farm, a few other merchants, a guild counter and a village chief.

Players accept assignments from the guild counter (and sometimes other people in the village), choose their equipment and dive into large environments with the goal of completing quests. Quests can consist of killing or capturing a monster or monsters, gathering items, or simply having a look around.

Completing these tasks is part of a larger goal. However, the main drive is to scavenge what you can and use it to improve your weapons and armour. As the monsters get tougher, so must your gear and thus starts a grind as you strive to bring down the game's most fearsome beasts. Monster Hunter is a style of action/adventure game that certainly isn't for everyone, but those who love it wouldn't dream of spending any less than hundreds, if not thousands, of hours chasing the series' biggest beasts.

Patience and perseverance is essential at times. You will need to complete a few of the more mundane resource gathering quests, before the game really starts to open up more quest options etc. The rewards are high. Some of the bigger and more challenging monsters will also be a real test of patience (especially later in the game). You will need to apply a bit of strategy when taking down the big monsters (i.e. learn how the monsters move and behave, and use this to your advantage, by picking opportune moments to attack, and applying evasion tactics to avoid loss of health).

Monster Hunter.

It is my favorite series of all time. I started gaming in the 80's with the NES. I've owned the NES, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance, Super NES, Genesis, Turbo Grafix 16, Playstation, Gamecube, Playstation 2, Playstation 3, PSP, PS Vita...

Monster Hunter is my favorite series.

I've played literally hundreds of hours across Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. I don't think it's necessary to describe Monster Hunter at this point. In short, it's all kinds of awesome. But one thing keeps this game from being a 5 star game in my opinion...


Yes, I know that no portable Monster Hunter has ever had online multiplayer, but this is different. This is not the PSP. This is not the DS. This is the 3DS and the year is 2013. It is inexcusable to release a game that is practically MP focused without the ability to play online.

It works in Japan because everybody and their brother owns a copy, but this isn't Japan and Capcom doesn't seem to get that. This game needs online multiplayer in the United States WITHOUT NEEDING TO OWN A Wii U.

That said, if you have a friend or two to hunt with, this may be a 5 star game for you. I plan on going as far as I can playing solo, which will be a challenge.

It's Monster Hunter, it's awesome, I love it, but I can't give it a 5-star rating when it's missing such a crucial feature.

4/22/13 EDIT: In my review I said "I plan on going as far as I can playing solo, which will be a challenge." I've gotten pretty far. I managed to solo my way up to G-Rank, which I'm proud of. There's a great sense of pride in killing G-Rank monsters solo. A real sense of accomplishment.
