"Monster Hunter still isn't a game that dispenses quick thrills. It never will be. It's a product of Japanese gaming culture in that it values and rewards hard work. But Tri is nonetheless far more accessible and appealing than its PSP counterparts – it's beautiful, absorbing, hugely satisfying to play (with a Classic Controller at least) and thankfully doesn't rely so heavily on multiplayer. In crafting a more balanced and engaging single-player experience, Capcom has ensured that many more players will be drawn into Monster Hunter's world - and once you're in, Tri shows you so much love that it's impossible not to love it back."
