As I stride across the open plains in search of my quarry, pausing briefly to brutalise a flock of velociraptors with a pair of combat bagpipes, I can't help but wonder why I've put myself through all this again. With Monster Hunter 4 set for a summer release in Japan, Capcom's decision to revamp Monster Hunter Tri for the Wii U and 3DS initially feels like a stopgap, and an age old formula that hides its fun behind more grind than you'd ever think possible from something classed as 'entertainment.' The franchise has always been easy to love yet difficult to like, with near-infinite depth and replayability gated behind a sadistic desire to mire players in poorly-explained busywork."
