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...

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 review – big game

 

Japan's favourite video game takes another crack at the Western market, with new 3DS and Wii U versions of the ultimate co-op hunting game.

Large game world with an almost infinite array of customisation options and content. Four player co-op can be great and the art style and visuals have never looked better

The inert camera is frustratingly unhelpful and the combat is needlessly awkward. Confusing interface. Few significant changes from the Wii version

It’s not much more than an HD update, but if you and your friends have the perseverance this is one of gaming’s most uniquely challenging co-op experiences.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

 

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: 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...
