CVG: Monster Hunter Tri Review

CVG: Drip drip drop little April showers. Not rainfall, but clammy hand sweat.

Nice job. I have it on pre-order, and played the demo. Haven't picked it up yet. I'm new to Monster Hunter, so I have to get whomped on for a bit as I learn, but I'm definitely buying it after I finish my current round of games.

Nah, it's got a nice learning curve so far from what I've played. If you're careless you'll easily get in trouble but if you take your time and work on defense you should be fine.

Anyway, fantastic game was playing with my new swanky CC Pro, just came off and checked my message board. Did not realise I had been playing it for 3 hours straight!

Oh and just a forewarning if ever you find that the offline single-player is to easy, just jump online and you'll get beat back down :p.
