Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

 

One of the most well-known images of the fantasy genre is a warrior clad in armor rushing toward a gigantic monster, ready to clash in a battle of legendary proportions. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is a Nintendo 3DS game that is sure to make any player...

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate: A Tale Of Two Monster Hunters

 

Monster Hunter is often described as a game about hunting big monsters, finding loot, getting stronger, and then hunting down even bigger monsters. However, I've always felt that description doesn't quite do justice to the series.

If there’s one thing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is really good at, it’s getting you excited for Monster Hunter 4. My only real complaint about MH3U is that, like in previous games, there’s a lot of fakery going on with the environment. You’ll see lots...

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Review

 

Control issues and a lack of online play hamper what's otherwise an outstanding Monster Hunter game.

Excellent large-scale battles ; Huge amount of compelling customization ; Monsters are fantastically realized

No integrated online play ; Without the Circle Pad Pro, the underwater camera is atrocious ; Controls are awkward

Large-scale fights aren't so bad, thanks to the aforementioned lock-on camera, but navigating the pools and lakes of Monster Hunter is an utter chore. Given the number of underwater sections, the Circle Pad Pro is basically mandatory if you're looking...

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate- WIIU

 

A lick of HD paint, a more robust online component, and a bunch of new content make Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate the best hunt yet.

Excellent large-scale battles ; Huge amount of compelling customization ; Monsters are fantastically realized ; The online component is vastly improved over Tri ; Great use of the GamePad

Onscreen text can be awkward to read ; Series fans will already have seen much of the content

Taking down a giant poisonous leech with a hammer is very different from attacking it with a bowgun. This gives you more patterns to learn, approaches to take, and things to consider. The lengthy animations when you use healing items are still present,...

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

 

Animal slaughter has never been this much fun.

Cool new features ; Deep, rewarding gameplay ; Difficult but rewarding ; Multiplayer is great fun

Mostly unimpressive visuals ; Online could use some tweaks ; Repetitive and less fun when not playing multiplayer ; Takes a good chunk of time before getting fun

Not a bad review at all, though you could have spent a bit more time focusing on how much fun it is to play online with friends. And well the score is 3 points too low. Just need more time to play the game, but loving both the Wii U and 3DS versions...

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate combines most of the content from the Wii title Monster Hunter Tri and the Japan-only game

Don't expect to enjoy this in the first 10 hours, but you'll love it after 30. Once MH3U has you, it..

It’s not easy to say that you need to put a lot of time in to appreciate what’s happening in MH3U, but it’s true. If you’re after instant-gratification, if you expect to have it beaten and traded within a week, you won’t enjoy your time here. However,...

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Review

 

But aside from these niggling flaws, the game is bloody amazing, and easily the best instalment in the Monster Hunter series to date.

Deep and rewarding combat system, addictive MMO-style gear-crafting.; Stunning design work, fantastical armour and weapons.; Excellent orchestral score, evocative and bizarre sound effects. ; A staggering amount of content, + free DLC and free online...

The game sort of throws you in the deep end; newcomers will want to watch a YouTube guide (or ten...).; Hand-me-down textures look a tad last-gen

Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate

 

Monster Hunter 3 is a confusing game. It's a beautiful, fascinating wet dream for people with OCD. It's not without problems though, mainly that it's a weird, chore of a cramped wet dream for people with OCD.

If you’re a fan of the series, have OCD, enjoy killing all of nature’s beasts or have a lot of patience, Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate is worthy of your time; it’s a game that arguably makes good use of the Wii U’s unique feaure set and that has a lot of...
