Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate 101: The Basics

'With Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate now available on the Nintendo Wii U, many out there will pick the game up, play it for an hour, and give up since they have no idea what the game is all about. If that’s the case, we got the basics down and we are here to tell you on what exactly Monster Hunter is all about and the things you will need to know.' - JPS (3DS, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Wii U)

Good stuff, only have two minor nitpicks.

The first is that you only get two revives, as three would mean you need to die four times to fail a quest. An easier way to say it is that you have three lives. To expand on that, it would be good to mention that those three lives are shared in online quests, so if a buddy goes down the party only has two lives left.

The other is the 'lock-on' as it doesn't actually lock-on to a monster and stay focused on it. It is more of a camera snap, only instead of snapping behind you like most games it snaps to the monster instead. You still have to move the camera around as it woun't stay focused on the monster you're hunting.

Other than those two, admittedly small, things you did a great job.

I really tried to like Monster Hunter. I played Freedom Unite on the PSP and Tri on Wii, but I just can't get used to the idea of coming back so many times to the same places to kill/collect things that weren't there before. I mean, if a quest tells me to collect 20 special mushrooms, why weren't them there the last 10 times I was on that place? And why can't I do more than 1 quest at the same time if they are in the same place? I guess it just isn't for me. I really love MH battle system, but the rest of the games aren't fun enough for me to enjoy it.
