Monster Hunter Tri hands-on report: too hardcore for Wii gamers?

GamePro: "Monster Hunter Tri is an important game for Nintendo – an exclusive and hardcore action RPG with a massive Japanese following, but after trialling it at a recent Nintendo event, I'm not convinced that it will be an altogether popular game here.

In short – it's just not accessible enough. Nintendo is claiming it'd take around 100 hours to accumulate enough loot to be able to defeat the more difficult monsters, and I'm just not sure many people will be able to achieve that landmark. ...Casual Wii players are going to be put right off with this one."

the Wii catering to the casual gamers/soccer moms/grandparents, and now they complain about a game being too hardcore. I don't know what to think of these so called journalist.

im sorry, too hardcore?
Seriously anyone picking up the game will have an idea of what there in for. I guess NA/Europe critics are never going to accept the Monster Hunter franchise.

Yeah Mario 5 was a cake walk along with Mario kart.

i doubt nintendo secured this deal for the soccer moms and grandparents. This game was secured for the gamers screaming for more traditional games on the wii. may not sell a lot in the states alone but it will have very nice numbers and if the indication that neither me or my old man can find a demo disc spanning both greensboro NC and columbia SC should be a good indication that at least gamers in the states are trying to see what the game is about.

100 hours of grinding to face the big monsters actually sounds kind of fun: it gives you a clear prize to work towards at least.

100 hours of grinding is never fun. Not even if its grinding in the bedroom. lol
