Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Review | Gamereactor UK

GR-UK writes: "It's a game built more for teams of adventurers than the lone wolf, as not only does the rock, scissors, paper dynamic between monster and hunter weapon types enforce the need for variety to quicken the downing of foes, but it also forestalls the grind in tackling the boss fights that are otherwise the highlight of the game. It's not uncommon to be hacking at the shins of some vast behemoth for over twenty minutes on your lonesome. Time then to invest in some friendly comrades-in-arms; the game supports online and local multiplayer for both the Wii U and 3DS versions (though you'll obviously need a few 3DS units to get a local party going)." (3DS, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Wii U) 7/10

Is this the same one that was on the Wii except in HD?
admiralvic  +   840d ago
It also got improvements, DLC, etc, but to a degree.. yes.

Yup but with extra monsters (think I read somewhere that 28 monsters have been drafted in from previous games), 1 extra area and a load of new quests on top of all the content from the the Wii original. And there's going to be DLC too so all in all a person could lose themselves in this game for hundreds of hours which is exactly what I'm planning on doing!

Here's more info from Wii U Daily:

"There are 339 new quests not counting free DLC quests and 2042 pieces of new equipment in the game, with each category of weapon having over 50+ new incarnations. That brings the total number of weapons in the game up to 1398. There are also 1028 new armor pieces, bringing the grand total up to 1663.
There are also three new areas for monster hunters to explore, including The Tower, Misty Peaks and the Tainted Sea."

Lol no thanks.

I have one of them on Vita, but it looks a little dated. I was hoping for updated graphics, etc.

PSP and PS3 already has Portable 3rd (and you have the option to play the fan translated version on PSP if you don't know Japanese). You really don't need a different iteration of the same game. If you really want a Monster Hunter game on Vita, then go for MH 4.

On topic; I'm currently playing Monster Hunter Tri on Dolphin emulator and having a blast. It looks like I'll finally be getting a 3DS just to be able to play Ultimate.

I bought a Wii just for MH Tri and I have to say it was a disappointment. MHFU was the best MH IMO.

Been playing the demo on the 3ds and enjoying it. I just wish they would add true online co op for it since I don't own a wii u and don't know anyone else with a 3ds to play with

Yet another WiiU claimed system seller is "only" a good game. First ZombieU, week ago Lego game, now this.
PopRocks359  +   839d ago
Based on one review? Sheesh. People around here really like to jump the gun, don't they.

EDIT: Furthermore, you know a 7/10 is not considered "bad," right? This is Monster Hunter. This is a very niche Japanese series with a cult following in the west. Not all of the reviewers are going to appreciate it.

In fact, the only time reviewers seem to appreciate something different is when fans are pissed about it. *coughDmCcough*

who every gets this hd remake for a 3ds game is stupid and nintendo has finally ran out out ideas smh
Zimmermangraph411  +   839d ago
Why are they stupid? God I'm tired of Sony drones. Also has MH4 been announced for vita yet ? As far as I remember it's a 3ds title.
DivineAssault  +   839d ago
seems agreeable to me.. Its an enhanced wii port of a good game in HD.
Kos-Mos  +   839d ago
Reviewers seems desperate to have a multi-player, which is nice of course, BUT being on your own feels much more rewarding. So heed my words kids of this generation.
